Where's Samuel? It's been confirmed that he's a regular. --Silurian King 15:14, 13 August 2009 (EDT)

  • I know. I agree too, but there are others out there who want to wait to add him until he makes it to a certain number of appearances or something like that.... --Iheartheroes 17:28, 13 August 2009 (EDT)
    • We only use appearances to distinguish minor character from recurring, main characters are added according to announcements, but we're not adding them cause there's still spoilers, I think. Intuitive Empath - Talk - Contributions 18:52, 13 August 2009 (EDT)
      • An actor's designation of having a contract with NBC is not really a spoiler. Character information might be, but whether they have a contract or not really isn't, other than announcing that there are new characters. The title of the page says "Season Four", which should designate to people that there is information on there that hasn't yet aired. If people balk, we can throw a spoiler warning on the top until the season begins. But I don't think there's anything wrong with including people who have been confirmed as being principal characters. It's how we've always done it, and I don't see a need to change that. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 19:17, 13 August 2009 (EDT)
  • Why is Mohinder listed here? Green.gif AltesUTC CH
    • It was confirmed he will still appear in the show this season.--MiamiVolts (talk) 03:09, 31 August 2009 (EDT)


Nathan shouldn't be listed here. Adrian's character this season is Sylar. - Josh (talk/contribs) 22:28, 1 September 2009 (EDT)

  • I agree with Josh. He's only being portrayed, not actually being there... --Iheartheroes 07:20, 2 September 2009 (EDT)
    • Good point...Though, do we use Adrian's picture to show Sylar, or do we use Zachary's picture to show Sylar? :) That's really a wait-and-see kind of call. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 08:06, 2 September 2009 (EDT)
      • I say Zachary's picture because he is Sylar. Last season Danko wasn't his picture; nor his mom; nor anyone else he shape shifted into.....hmm...but does that mean that when Sylar appears in the shape of nathan, are we going to say that nathan had an appearance? or just sylar?? hmm... --Iheartheroes 16:05, 2 September 2009 (EDT)
        • Maybe a new picture that incorporates both of them? After all, Adrian is a series regular... TracyStraussFan 16:06, 21 September 2009 (EDT)
          • I'd like to wait until we see how it's handled on the show before we decided which picture to use. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 16:16, 21 September 2009 (EDT)
            • I know this is an old discussion, but I recently received scripts for the last few episodes. Every one lists "Nathan Petrelli...Adrian Pasdar" as a series regular, regardless of whether or not he appears or which other characters he's playing. FYI. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:04, 12 January 2010 (EST)
  • I don't know if anyone else is familiar with Battlestar Galactica, but in the first two seasons on there, a series regular, Tricia Helfer, played a figment of a character's imagination in almost every episode, and played herself or an incarnation of her irregularly. The imagination charatcer was often called 'Virtual Six' (Six was her name). Is it possible Zachary Quinto will be playing Virtual Sylar (with Matt) on a regular basis, and should we create an article for this? -- Tristan0709 talk 02:47, 23 September 2009 (EDT)
    • No more than an article for Virtual Linderman, who appeared in quite a few episodes last season. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 08:10, 23 September 2009 (EDT)
      • Yes, but Linderman was being created by Maury, whereas, as far as we know, Virtual Sylar isn't being controlled by anything at all. -- Tristan0709 talk 20:32, 23 September 2009 (EDT)

Where's Samuel? It's been confirmed that he's a regular, he was up here a week ago-- By Danko CH 15:07, 6 October 2009 (EDT)

  • Samuel has been billed as a guest star every week that Heroes has been on. Until his name appears with the other series regulars, he won't be on this page. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 16:42, 6 October 2009 (EDT)


Why is Mohinder on here? I haven't seen Sendhil's name in any of the opening credits.--Citizen 19:24, 6 October 2009 (EDT)

  • He was in the Season Four press release. -- Tristan0709 talk 03:14, 30 October 2009 (EDT)
    • Was it confirmed that Mohinder will be a main character? Green.gif AltesUTC CH
  • Now that Mohinder has appeared only to be shown dead, he can't be a main character. Green.gif AltesUTC CH
    • I encourage you to look at the spoilers page, specifically the press release for the episode after next. -- Tristan0709 talk 02:09, 3 November 2009 (EST)
      • Even then he won't have enough appearances to be a main character... Unless he is saved. Green.gif AltesUTC CH
        • Remember, Main character status is based on contract/salary, not the number of episodes appeared in. --Skullman1392 11:48, 3 November 2009 (EST)
          • Yes, exactly. Sendhil Ramamurthy is credited with the rest of the regular cast, before the "Guest Starring" actors in the credits, and so Mohinder is a main character. -- Tristan0709 talk 17:56, 20 November 2009 (EST)


  • Adrian Pasdar IS a regular this season, surely there should be some recognition of this here? Even changing Sylar's picture to show both him and Quinto, perhaps? Ali Larter has two characters in the S1 portal, and Pasdar isn't recognised at all here, I just don't think that's right... -- Tristan0709 talk 18:13, 20 November 2009 (EST)
    • This is a character portal, not an actor portal. I think Adrian is listed as main cast in the cast portal. Intuitive Empath - Talk - Contributions 18:43, 20 November 2009 (EST)
      • Ali has too characters on the S1 portal because she is two different characters. Sylar is two different actors. So, in the actor portals, there would be one less actor/actress in the S1 portal and one extra in the S4 portal. ~~IHHTalk 19:29, 20 November 2009 (EST)
        • I disagree that Ali is two characters, but I see what you mean. I just think visual recognition of Adrian's status should be shown for this season. -- Tristan0709 talk 19:48, 20 November 2009 (EST)
          • Agree. I'll add Nathan to this portal. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 20:10, 20 November 2009 (EST)
            • We do have visual recognition of Adrian's status. It's on Portal:Principal Cast/Season Four. However, Nathan Petrelli has died, and has only had minor roles in this season (a couple of flashbacks, a brief mind-flash, and a dead body). I don't think it's reasonable to call him a Main Character of Season Four. --Radicell 04:51, 16 December 2009 (EST)
              • I personally think that those small appearances are enough to warrant him being listed as a main character. Although exceptions would obviously come in the form of Candice and so on, Pasdar is a regular and he played Nathan on several occasions. -- Tristan0709 talk 04:55, 16 December 2009 (EST)
                • Didn't Adrian appear as Nathan only once this season, just like Niki last season? - Josh (talk/contribs) 19:36, 20 December 2009 (EST)
                  • I recently received scripts for the last few episodes. Every one lists "Nathan Petrelli...Adrian Pasdar" as a series regular, regardless of whether or not he appears or which other characters he's playing. FYI. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:04, 12 January 2010 (EST)
