Back in the early 2000s, Hayden Panettiere was everywhere. From her role in the popular series Heroes to plum parts in rom-coms like I Love You, Beth Cooper, she made her rounds in Hollywood. For all that exposure, however, Panettiere has largely faded from public view.
Panettiere rose to mainstream prominence by starring as Claire Bennet on Heroes. For a while, the show was enormously popular and uniquely headline-making, something of a predecessor to the ever-expanding world of TV series we know today. Those who were around for its burst of success will likely recall its infamous tagline,
“Save the cheerleader, save the world.”
Claire Bennet is this very cheerleader, and was featured prominently in the show’s promotional campaigns. Claire has the power of cellular regeneration, which allows her to heal quickly from injuries and become practically immortal. When she initially discovers her powers, she’s both curious and frightened, and eventually realizes that her own fate might be tied to that of the entire world.
Heroes didn’t just earn the public’s acclaim — critics initially responded to it with glowing praise as well. The first season inspired widespread excitement, scoring multiple wins and nominations from a wide variety of industry awards, including the Golden Globes and the Emmys. But in later seasons, Heroes’ ratings took a tumble. It began to feel as though the writers had no real plan for giving the show a satisfying conclusion, and the narrative became increasingly ludicrous and convoluted. Unfortunately for Panettiere, Heroes has become remembered for its stellar first season and not much else. In the end, the show was canceled on a low note, which very well might have impacted Panettiere’s career.
