“Hellblazer” fans who have been wondering how the character of Zed would be incorporated into NBC’s Constantine need look no further than E!, who provide us with our first glimpse at the luscious in the role. Check out the pics (with guest star James LeGros) and promo clip below!
A former lover of John Constantine (Matt Ryan) in the comics, Zed is an artist with visions she can’t control who teams up with the demon hunter to take on the world of the occult.
The original female lead was a character created specifically for the pilot, Liv (Lucy Griffiths), who was dropped from the series after producers realized they needed a female character who was more a match for Constantine in both abilities and charisma. Zed’s first appearance has been added as a coda to the first episode, and she’ll be properly introduced the following week in an episode titled “The Darkness Beneath.”
Set to premiere on Friday, October 24, Constantine will air Fridays at 10 p.m. on NBC.
