Countdown to Constantine: Angelica Celaya

Constantine premieres tomorrow, and the character that I can’t wait to meet is Zed, played by Angelica Celaya!

We had the chance to chat with Celaya at both San Diego Comic-Con and New York Comic Con this year, so we have clips from both to share with you.

Before you dig into the videos below, here are a few things you should know about Celaya’s portrayal of Zed:

  • When we are first introduced to Zed, we quickly learn that she’s considered insane and is consumed by everything that’s going on with her abilities.
  • Regarding Zed’s trademark white streaks in her hair, there are no plans for that — yet. Celaya said they can’t appear without a reason.
  • Her portrayal of the character is more about her interpretation of Zed rather than trying to be a carbon copy of how Zed is represented in the comic book.
  • Celaya loves Zed’s sarcasm and that she doesn’t take crap from anybody. Zed is also sneaky and not scared to get her hands dirty.
  • The connection between Constantine and Zed evolves and opens up even more with each episode.
  • John Constantine is Zed’s teacher and her biggest ally. He’s the one who leads her into this world.
