Let's get one thing straight, before we hear what Brea Grant has to say about her new character on Heroes: she'll be named Daphne, as opposed to previous reports that linked her to a character named Joy.
With that out of the way, here's what else Grant told The Associated Press about her role in the upcoming season:
"I'm stealing a secret that's been kept in Hiro's family for a long time that he's just now found... He stops time right as I grab it, but in that second it took him to grab it, I almost make it out of the office."
Masi Oka chimed in about the character he'll be facing off against:
"Her character is supposed to be Hiro's Joker. Batman has The Joker. Hiro has Daphne. This is the season where Hiro finally finds his arch nemesis, and it happens to be this Speedster. I kind of equate it more to Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner, except Daphne says more than ‘meep-meep.'"
