Comments Off on CONSTANTINE’s Angélica Celaya on Finding Zed’s Purpose

Since her introduction into the CONSTANTINE world, Zed has helped the team with her visions. While those visions occasionally caused her physical trauma, it took Zed collapsing at a hospital last week for the truth to come out: she has a tumor. And despite the risks of not dealing with it, Zed opted to live with it and not chance losing the gift she was given.

“We all know Zed has a brain tumor! It’s really that moment, that human moment, for Zed that we saw last week — okay, I have these visions and I have this tumor, and this tumor is what I have to suffer to do the greater good,” CONSTANTINE star Angélica Celaya (Zed) explained. “And she kept asking Manny, ‘Is this from God, or if it’s not, what is this?’ And just [him] being Manny, and being in his presence, just confirmed that it is from God, and she needs to sacrifice herself for the greater good. Zed’s mindset is suck it up, it’s showtime. She finally feels purpose.”

“She was running away from her family — which we touched a little bit through the season: her family trying to kidnap her — and anyone who is a true fan of [the] “Hellblazer” [comics] knows what that past is, and that her father is the leader of the cult, and basically wants to kidnap her,” she continued. “Zed does not want that purpose. She wants her own purpose, her own journey, her own destiny. And she finally found it last episode, saying, ‘This is what I have to do, I know exactly what I’m doing now.’ That’s Zed’s mindset: time to rock and roll, baby.

While Zed may have found her zen with the tumor, the reveal initially threw Celaya.

constantine-thumbThe CONSTANTINE crew will be introduced to a familiar face from the comics in this week’s brand new episode: Jim Corrigan. And, unfortunately for Jim, the initial interactions aren’t wildly positive.

“John and Jim cross paths on a case,” CONSTANTINE star Matt Ryan (John) teased to reporters on the show’s Atlanta set. “But what’s interesting is Jim is introduced to this world, which he doesn’t believe — he thinks, what the fuck is this supernatural stuff? There’s a great line where he says, how do you know this is real? What’s interesting about their relationship is they want the same thing, ultimately, but they’re coming at it from different angles, and they’re willing to sacrifice different parts of themselves. And ultimately, Corrigan wants justice, but that comes from a form of rage, a form of anger. With John, it’s complicated. There’s those things as well, but there’s a lot of other stuff as well. I think Jim’s world is very much based in the real world, and John, obviously, knows about the world beyond ours, so there’s other levels…and John uses his humor as a defense mechanism; he’s become good at hiding it. Whereas Corrigan, you can see more on the surface, he’s a little more scarred. But I think John’s problems are more deeper rooted…but he hides them well, I think.”

And because John doesn’t immediately click with Jim, Chas finds himself on guard around the newbie, too.
