New Constantine footage reveals first look at Angelica Celaya's Zed

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:

Constantine debuts this Friday on NBC. Will you be watching?
