Rachel Melvin is coming on board Heroes for season four of the NBC drama.
The actress - best known for her long-time role as Chelsea on Days of Our Lives - spoke on the new role with Fancast.com at last month's Daytime Emmy Awards.
"Her name is Annie. Her character is a little neurotic and high strung, definitely different than what I’ve played," Melvin said.
So, what about the rumors that Annie and Claire actually engaged in a lesbian relationship? Melvin said her character won't play a part in that storyline, but she didn't shoot down its likelihood. The actress said:
"It’s not me. That’s all I’ll say."
Heroes premieres in fourth season on September 14. Are you excited for it?
