Created by Alan Moore, the series' main character John Constantine is a con man and detective who roots out the source of Supernatural mysteries.
Constantine is described as "a working-class Londoner with rakish good looks, scruffy blond hair, deadpan humor, and signature trench coat, who has been studying the dark arts since he was a teenager."
Constantine first appeared as a recurring character in the series The Saga of the Swamp Thing in 1985. Keanu Reeves played Constantine in a 2005 film adaptation. Guillermo del Toro has also hinted that the character will appear in his upcoming Justice League Dark film for Warner Bros.
Ryan will next be seen on the big screen in 500 Miles North. His past film credits include Armistice, Flypaper, Wild Decembers, Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day and more. He has appeared on television in Vikings, Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior, Collision, The Tudors and more.
