Angelica Celaya who plays Zed on Constantine was recently interviewed by CBR and asked about what the future holds for Constantine and whether or not the series been canceled. She also responds to the overwhelming fan support for the series in the #SaveConstantine campaign.
Celaya on the reactions to the series getting canceled:
We have up to episode 15 in our hands, and we wish you guys could see what a riot that would have been. That’s going to get reworked for season two. I got contracted for 13 episodes. I didn’t get contracted for 15, 19 or 20. The funny thing is, everybody got scared. “They are canceling Constantine.” Well, according to my contract, I was only scheduled for 13. According to my timeslot, I knew I was going to have January and February and so on free.
The true diehard fans got really scared saying, “Oh, my God. What happened?”
It’s like, “Wait a minute. There are other series that started off a little slow, trying to see what they were doing.” You see our episodes and the money going into those graphics and CG. When you are spending a pretty dime making these graphics look like you are going to the movies, it adds up.
On the fan support with the #SaveConstatine campaign:
Honestly, it’s so humbling. As of right now, we have very few episodes on the air because we started late in the season. To have fans out there rallying and voting for People’s Choice and making #SaveConstantine a trending topic on Twitter is very humbling. It only makes us want to get back into the groove, get back into the stories. All of us on set, when we saw the fans screaming and stepping up, we were like, “We have got to make this good. Forget us. Forget whatever the actors want. No, no, no. We have fans we need to please, so we better step this up.”
