News surfaced this past week that things were being changed up on NBC’s Constantine, that the character Liv (Lucy Griffiths) was being dropped after the Pilot episode. It was felt that the character was too much of a “rookie” when it comes to the supernatural. So the producers wanted to go in a different direction.
Enter Zed, who will be played by Angelica Celaya. She is an existing character in the Hellblazer/Constantine world of characters. The character has more experience with the supernatural which producers are hoping will help create more conflict in the series. Zed also has romantic ties to Constantine too.
Constantine stars Welsh actor Matt Ryan in the role of John Constantine. The series will premiere this fall on Friday, October 24th on NBC. (Source: The Wrap)
