Hayden Panettiere: Not Invited for “Heroes” Revival

Posted Wednesday April 16, 2014 8:35 AM GMT

Despite the fact that she played one of the best-loved characters on “Heroes,” Hayden Panettiere wasn’t asked to return for the series reboot.

The “Nashville” actress told Cosmopolitan that she’s understandably upset to have been overlooked by the show’s honchos.

Hayden noted, “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.”

"I mean, we had nothing, nothing to do with it. It will definitely be interesting to see how they reinvent that. 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. 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."
