Angélica Guadalupe Celaya (born July 9, 1982) is an American actress and model born in Tucson, Arizona to Mexican parents.

Early life and career[edit]

Celaya was born on July 9, 1982 in Tucson, Arizona to Mexican parents.[1]

Her acting debut was in the 2003 telenovela Ladrón de corazones. She also played roles in telenovelas including Los plateados, Marina, Mientras haya vida and Vivir sin ti.[2]

Celaya was selected as the female lead "Zed" in the supernatural drama Constantine alongside Matt Ryan. The character of Zed was added to the show after the show-runners decided not to use the female lead from the pilot.[3] Although the show was cancelled after only one season, Celaya's portrayal of the young psychic plagued by visions was generally well received by fans.

Since the cancellation of Constantine, Celaya has gone on to have guest appearances on multiple shows, including Castle and Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders.

Personal life[edit]

In 2010, while shooting the telenovela Alguien te mira, she met Rafael Amaya, with whom she started a relationship. They became engaged, but as of May 2015, Amaya confirmed their breakup. She has a son, Angel Alessandro (b. September 8, 2017) with Mexican Boxer Luis Garcia, whom she married on her baby boy's 1st birthday, September 8, 2018.
