Dawn Olivieri must be doing something right to earn such doubly great casting fortune.

Last week, the actress was killed off the train wreck that is Heroes, as her character of Lydia took a bullet to the chest. Today, meanwhile, she's landed a role on one of TV's hottest shows:

Olivieri will portray Janice Herveaux, the sister of werewolf Alcide (Joe Manganiello), the rising star's rep confirmed to TV Guide.

The character isa  tom boy/biker chick who's quite protective of her younger brother. She's also into horoscopes and psychics.

Olivieri will debut in the new season's fourth episode. She's previously appeared on installments of My Boys, Entourage and How I Met Your Mother and Cold Case.

It's safe to say I disagree:


I agree with foxmodly, Heroes has been really good this season and I love tonight's episode.


"Train wreck?" Heroes has been terrific. Tonight's episode was one of the best in recent memory. But Heroes bashing has become a cottage industry.
