Kristen Bell Speaks on Elle

at . Comments

Those that saw the commercial for next week's Heroes already know the great news: Kristen Bell premieres!

And she appears to be up to no good, interacting with Peter (Milo Ventimiglia) in Ireland in some diabolical way.

The former Veronica Mars star recently spoke to TV Guide about her character, Elle:

"She's a little messed up in the head, which makes her manipulative and out to get what she wants," Bell said.

This, Bell notes, is "really interesting... because [Heroes'] whole first season was about these fairly good-natured people trying to embrace these abilities and being very conflicted as to how they should be using them. Elle is not that way at all. She very much enjoys her power and the emotional power it gives her over other people."

Series creator Tim Kring adds: "Elle was raised within the Company, and this is in some ways a cautionary tale about what would happen to any of our characters had they lived with powers their whole life."

So, are there any characters at all Elle can relate to? Well...

"There's a very interesting dynamic between her and Claire, in terms of what is and what is not. There's a deeper relationship there than people are expecting."

Gosh, is it Monday yet? We can't wait to watch as this develops.
