Swoosie Kurtz is the American actress who portrays Millie Houston.


Prior to her appearance on Heroes, Swoosie was "Lily Charles" to Ellen Greene's "Vivian Charles" on Bryan Fuller's Pushing Daisies. She also appeared in TV drama series Lost.

After Heroes, Swoosie had regular appearances on Rita Rocks, American Dad!, Mike & Molly, Man with a Plan, and The Dangerous Book for Boys.

Swoosie acted with Hayden Panettiere in American Dad! and with Mark Christopher Lawrence in Chuck.


  • Kurtz was a series regular on Bryan Fuller's show, Pushing Daisies, which Fuller created after leaving Heroes. The show's cancellation marked Fuller's return to Heroes. Fuller's friendship with Kurtz is what was responsible for Kurtz joining Heroes. [1]
  • Swoosie's unusual first name comes from her father, Captain Frank Kurtz. A colonel in the Air Force, he named his daughter after a particular B-17D Flying Fortress called "The Swoose", so named because it was "half swan, half goose".
