The show might just be making its debut this Friday, but NBC’s Constantine series has already had its fair share of shake-ups. Want to get a peek at the latest addition to the cast?
As has been well documented, Lucy Griffith’s character Liv — who was conceived as a series regular — has been dropped from the show after the pilot. So, who took her place? DC character Zed, played by Angelica Celaya. Now, thanks to a newly released clip dropped ahead of the series premiere, we have our first look at her in action.
Having seen the pilot, we can attest that Griffith’s character was not a great fit for the series. Going back to the comic canon, Zed has some guts and should be a great foil for Matt Ryan’s Constantine — as is displayed in the clip below. Heck, that one minute below shows off more chemistry than the entire original pilot with Griffith. So, yeah, probably a good change.
The scene below seems to show Constantine and Zed’s first meeting. Not sure if this is one of the reshoots for the pilot, or a clip from a future episode, but regardless, it’s great to finally get a peek at what should be a major player in this DC adaptation. Check out the footage and let us know what you think:
