Hayden Panettiere "nothing to do" with Heroes reboot
Don't expect Hayden Panettiere to pop up in Heroes Reborn. She didn't even know it was happening...
One of the shining lights of the original Heroes TV series was Hayden Panettiere, who shot to fame of the back of her role as Claire Bennet in the show. However, in conversation with Cosmopolitan, a source we regularly cite at Den Of Geek, she's revealed that she has absolutely nothing to do with the upcoming revamp, Heroes Reborn.
The original plan with Heroes Reborn was to bring back some of the original cast members from Heroes. But Panettiere said that "it was a shock to me" that the show was returning at all, admitting that "I believe I became privy to that through my cousin. She sent me a text message and told me about it".
Panettiere confirmed that she hadn't been asked back for the new show, adding that "I hope that they don't have somebody else playing our character, that would be a little dagger in the heart". She did say that "I wish them success in it, for sure".
Heroes Reborn will debut on NBC in 2015.
