Last night, Masi Oka, Hayden Panettiere, Greg Grunberg and Milo Ventimiglia, stars of the sci-fi series Heroes, wrapped Season One with a celebration in Los Angeles, California.
In an interview with Access Hollywood, the cast of Heroes expressed their sentiments about their inclusion to the show. “It’s definitely surreal to be able to share this moment with my family — the crew, cast, writers and everybody on the show. We knew we were creating something very passionate together and we were all going through this journey together. It’s just a great feeling,” said Oka, who plays Hiro Nakamura on the series.
As for Grunberg, who plays the mind reading cop Matt Parkman, he described his work on Heroes as something gratifying compared to the work he has done in the past. He said, “[Heroes has] been different in at least in my storyline it’s more of a leading role than being a supporting actor. At the same time it’s great to be part of an ensemble show. I just love being on the show.”
Ventimiglia also had the same positive sentiments about his inclusion on the popular show and even mentioned his enjoyable working relationship with veteran British actor Christopher Eccleston, who plays the vanishing Claude.
He said, “ [It was] amazing. [He’s] truly a giver. For me I always worried that I wasn’t giving enough to him because of what the character was going through at the time … I hear when he went back overseas and Chris [told people he] had such a great time working with me so it was very flattering to know he enjoyed himself as much as I did.”
Meanwhile, Heroes is on hiatus but the cast remains positive about season two. “We even know a bit about what’s going on for season 2. What’s gonna happen is we’re gonna reshow the entire season one with Hiro going back in time,” hinted Oka.
Catch a new episode of Heroes on Monday, April 23 at 9/8 C on NBC.
