In fact, she was actually shocked she wasn't asked to come back and found out about Heroes: Reborn through her cousin! In a text message!
"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."
While Hayden denies any involvement with the upcoming mini-series, she's not-so-secretly hoping it's just a new set of characters and not someone else playing the precious role of Claire Bennet!
"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."
Well, if it's any consolation, we could never see someone else but you in the role of Claire!
