Angelica Celaya has landed a supernatural role…
The 32-year-old Mexican American actress and telenovela star has been cast in NBC’s new supernatural thriller Constantine.
Celaya, who guest-starred on Burn Notice, will portray the character of Zed on the show.
The series is based on the characters appearing in the comic series Hellblazerpublished by DC Comics under their Vertigoimprint.
Executive producer Daniel Cerone described Zed as a character with “an interesting dark past” and called her a perfect foil for the title character of John Constantine, portrayed by Matt Ryan, a dark magician who is struggling with his past sins as he tries to protect humanity from a gathering supernatural threat.
“Zed is intuitive, she can detect bulls***,” he said, and Constantine is a “bulls*** artist.”
In addition to Ryan and Celaya, Constantine also stars Harrold Perrineau and Charles Halford.
