British star Lucy Griffiths ('The Numbers Station') has been dropped from NBC's new 'Constantine' series. The 27-year old actress has left the project after reports that the creators were looking to move in a different direction and that a recasting of the role will not be necessary as the character will simply exit the show in the first episode. Zed, a character from the original series of graphic novels, will step in. The gorgeous Angelica Celaya (below) has been cast into the role and will appear in an early episode of the new show. The character is said to have "a very dark past" and will star along show lead Matt Ryan.

Here's what 'Constantine' exec producer Daniel Cerone had to say about the new character:

"She's someone who can go toe-to-toe with John [Constantine], and that's ultimately something we felt like we needed We wanted a more dynamic relationship, as opposed to someone who is a teacher/mentor and a student. It just didn't feel as fertile and rich of an area as just a strong a man and a strong woman who are both very different."

'Constantine' will premiere on Friday 24 October at 10:00pm over on NBC.

"In Constantine, based on the comic book series "Hellblazer" from DC Comics, seasoned demon hunter and master of the occult John Constantine specializes in giving hell… hell. Armed with a ferocious knowledge of the dark arts and his wickedly naughty wit, he fights the good fight – or at least he did. With his soul already damned to hell, he's decided to leave his do-gooder life behind. But when demons target Liv, the daughter of one of Constantine's oldest friends, he's reluctantly thrust back into the fray – and he'll do whatever it takes to save her. Before long, it's revealed that Liv's "second sight," an ability to see the worlds behind our world and predict supernatural occurrences, is a threat to a mysterious new evil that's rising in the shadows. And now it's not just Liv who needs protection; the angels are starting to get worried too. So, together, Constantine and Liv must use her power and his skills to travel the country, find the demons that threaten our world – and send them back where they belong. After that, who knows… maybe there's hope for him and his soul after all."

Angelica Celaya
