Hayden Panettiere has not been asked to return for 'Heroes Reborn'


"I hope that they don't have somebody else playing our characters, that would be a little dagger in the heart."

Q: A lot of readers love your character Claire from Heroes, too, which is returning to NBC in 2015 as a miniseries, Heroes: Reborn. When did you hear it was going to come back? What was your reaction?
Well, it was a shock to me, and, 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.

Q: Well, what do you think your character has been up to?
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.
