Hayden Panettiere On Heroes Reborn

In a recent article in Cosmopolitan the one-time star of the long running TV series Heroes, the actress who played Claire Bennet (a cheerleader with Wolverine’s Healing Factor), Hayden Panettiere had a few choice quotes when it comes to the reboot of the series tentatively titled Heroes Reborn and whether any other cast would be returning for the series.

Well, it was a shock to me. In fact, I believe I became privy to that through my cousin. She sent me a text message and told me about it, and, I mean, we had nothing, nothing to do with it; it will definitely be interesting to see how they reinvent that.

I think it’s a whole new set of characters. Who knows? It’s a little bit of an interesting feeling because you go, ‘That was our show, our home, our family,’ something that we had a major part in creating as well, and, I mean, I hope that they don’t have somebody else playing our characters, that would be a little dagger in the heart. But, you never know. I wish them success in it, for sure.

Personally, I didn’t hate her character or her role in the show, the only real problem that I had with the original Heroes was that it was a bit too plodding and didn’t have an endgame in mind which took us to a carnival with Theodore Bagwell and a deaf lady who could see sounds. I hope the new series works out better considering they’re only getting 13 episodes and an online prequel to set the story up. I can only pray that we actually get to see more of future Hiro Nakamura.
