A Hero Speaks!


Kristen Bell interview from Scifi.com


Kristen Bell, who will join the cast of NBC's Heroes in the Oct. 22 episode, told reporters that her character, Elle, is duplicitous, manipulative and just "a little off." Speaking in a conference call with reporters, Bell declined to divulge Elle's super power, but hinted that the character arrives with a link to several others, most notably Peter Petrelli (Milo Ventimiglia), whom she encounters in Ireland.


"I have been crossing my fingers in hopes that I would get a job soon where I could play someone who was, as [creator] Tim [Kring] likes to call it, 'a little off,' or perhaps didn't have the brightest and shiniest of intentions," Bell said. (She spoke along with Kring, the show's executive producer.) "And I think the depths at which they've written Elle, this character, she's so conflicted and sort of comes across as such a victim. It's so much fun to play with." Bell, who gained fame in the title role of The CW's Veronica Mars, is one of several new characters introduced in Heroes' second season.


As for Elle's interactions with the other characters, Bell said, "I have a lot of information about Peter's past. ... " Kring added: "We introduce the character, and she is looking for Peter Petrelli. So I think one can assume that she finds him." Asked if she could reveal anything more about Elle's power or the character's relationships with the show's familiar faces, Bell replied, "I can't reveal her secret power. You'll have to watch next Monday. But it's a very cool power. She has ties to H.R.G. [Jack Coleman] and Claire [Hayden Panettiere], and I think there's going to be a very interesting dynamic, I think, between her and Claire as far as what is and what is not. I think there's going to be a deeper relationship there than people are expecting.


Or they're going to see maybe some parallels. She also has ties, a little bit, to Suresh [Sendhil Ramamurthy]." Bell's first episode, "Fight or Flight," airs Oct. 22 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. (NBC is owned by NBC Universal, which also owns SCIFI.COM.) —Ian Spelling

its kind of funny though,
i was watching a youtube video
and how she only likes guys that're "caring" and "good to the world" what BS is that? hm, talk about being completely fake. that's why I don't like some of the people that are "stars."
they always say what people want to hear and it's really annoying.

You people are so rude. One slightly unflattering picture and you decide that gives you license to say horrible things about a wonderful actress. Try watching Veronica Mars, or Forgetting Sarah Marshall if you for some stupid reason don't like Kristen in Heroes.

Kristen Bell is not only amazingly talented, she's gorgeous. Where I'm fairly sure the majority of you lot are damn ugly. Enjoy your lonely pathetic lives psychos :)

P.S.: This message is purely directed at the inconsiderate and just plain mean commenters on this blog. No offence to those rare comments in there that might have made a smidgen of sense. Enjoy.

this is aimed at the people who talk badly about kristen bell. HOw dare u say that kind of stuff about her like that. if she was not good at acting would they hav chosen her for the role???And for the people that call her ugly, do u think ur pretty urself???? she was voted one of the sexiest women alive in maxim. SHe's a hot lady and i luv her sooooo much as a fan!!!!!

Nick said...

First off she's gorgeous, so anyone who doesn't think so has some messed up standards for how women should look. Secondly she's absolutely a talented actress; just because she doesn't play the stereotypical damsel in distress doesn't make her a bad actress, its really quite the opposite. She has personality and originality. I absolutely loved her in Veronica Mars.

Nick said...

P.S. I'm sure the lot of you have flawless facial features and bulging, toned physiques, and are therefore highly qualified to judge Kristen Bell. In case it was unclear that was sarcasm and you've all earned my utter disgust.

Peter said...

She played a very strong character in Veronica Mars. If it wasnt for her, I would not have tuned into the show. I wish her success on the rest of her very long acting career. I personally find her very attractive.

Kristen Bell's character on Heroes, Elle, was my favorite. I also saw her in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, and she was great at portraying both characters. Have any of you played roles on really popular TV series and movies? Yeah, didn't think so, so just shut up your obnoxious little mouths. Mmmkay?

I hate to say this, but Kristen gives me that 'tickley feeling' in my belly, that forces me to drop trou and ham off...
