Heroes' Mommy Dearest Heats Things Up

The Cristine Rose Interview

TWoP: It does. It sounds like a fun place to go to work.

CR: It is but very challenging. But they are wonderful people. All of them.

TWoP: Well you don't want to be bored.

CR: No. No. I'm not bored. Confused sometimes, but never bored. [Laughs]

TWoP: Well we're confused watching it sometimes, but it's still addictive.

CR: I'm confused watching. I read the scripts. I play the part, and then I watch an episode and I say, 'Whoa. Wait a minute. What happened back there?' But that's part of the great pleasure of the show.

TWoP: So they've been hinting and they sort of allude to it in the first half of the episode that you have some sort of power? Are we going to see that in action at all?

CR: Yes. In the first episode we find out that indeed, one of her powers at least, her power is to dream the future and that makes sense in retrospect because that was the first power that Peter manifested. And of course the first person he was ever near was his mom. I've read this on some of the blogs that people have said just that, and they guessed it right on. So we know she can dream the future. It's just a horrible power to have. Especially if you have nothing else. Peter at least has other powers to try and stop it. But then even he gets into massive trouble trying to stop evil.

TWoP: Right. It's not like Hiro who can jump to the future and then change things.

CR: We know that future Peter has come back to fix something. And he messed it all up. Made it even worse.

TWoP: Right. The scene with you in the hallway with future Peter? That was good TV. That a nice no-nonsense mom right there.

CR: She wants to get his attention. She gets his attention and in the second episode we have a couple of really good scenes too. It's two very high-powered people who are squaring off against one another and neither trusting the other that much? Oh I forgot the phrase. We're a good match for each other, future Peter and I.

TWoP: Both have stubborn personalities going on there.

CR: He gets it all from me.

TWoP: Well of course, that's what moms are for, to pass on the good and bad traits.

CR: Aw. You're sweet. Thank you.

TWoP: Are we going to see Angela and Claire together? I loved that dynamic.

CR: High possibility. I come into contact with many more characters this season that I ever have before. So much has been confined to the boys.
