CONSTANTINE: Lucy Griffiths Exits; New Character 'Zed' To be Written In

Although True Blood's Lucy Griffiths played Liv in the Constantine pilot, NBC have decided to write her out of future episodes, and bring in a character that should be familiar to Hellblazer fans to replace her. More past the jump..


Apparently wanting to go in a "different direction", the Constantine showrunners have decided to write the character of Liv out of the series -- and of course that also means saying goodbye to the actress that played her in the pilot episode, Lucy Griffiths. Instead of Liv, they're bringing in a character called Zed, who in the DC/vertigo comic books was originally John's lover before reappearing as a pagan sorceress. According to THR, "she will appear in an early episode of the series, with additional characters from Hellblazer and the occult DC universe to be introduced later. Zed will, however, be the first to appear." More occult DC characters eh? That should be interesting -- Zatanna? Swamp Thing? Etrigan perhaps? Anyway, it's a shame about Griffiths but Zed is a cool character, so it just remains to see who they'll be getting to play her.
