Actress Hayden Panettiere says she was shocked after realising that the makers of her hit sci-fi TV series ‘Heroes’ did not approach her for the reboot.
The 24-year-old blonde beauty was part of the original cast, playing indestructible cheerleader Claire Bennet in the show that revolved around the lives of ordinary people who discover that they have superpowers, reported Daily Express.
“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 (the original cast) had nothing, nothing to do with it; it will definitely be interesting to see how they reinvent that,” Panettiere said.
She wants the new show to be a success. “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,” she said.
The show ran for four seasons before it was axed in 2010, but TV bosses recently announced plans to revive the series as ‘Heroes Reborn’.
