No worries–Hayden, Masi and all your other favorite Heroes cast members aren’t going anywhere. But as season two of the NBC hit returns, here are five new exciting faces to watch for:
Kristen Bell (Elle)
“Elle has trouble knowing right from wrong,” Bell told Entertainment Weekly of her character. But the former Veronica Mars star is clear on one thing: her enthusiasm for joining the show. “Heroes was the watercooler discussion at Veronica Mars,” she says.
David Anders (Takezo Kensei)
What are Anders’s character Kensei’s superpowers? Turns out, the actor’s pretty tight–lipped about that, though he hints “they’ll have major ramifications for the entire Heroes world.”
Dana Davis (Monica Dawson)
It’s a true family connection–character–wise–for Davis’s character, who’ll turn up as Micah’s (Noah Gray-Cabey) cousin.
Dania Ramirez and Shalim Ortiz (Maya Herrera and Alejandro Herrera)
Ramirez and Ortiz play twin characters on the run from the law because their powers are so destructive, EW reports. Ortiz explains: “We are on our way to the U.S. so we can get answers. Our story starts with a punch.”
