It feels like just yesterday that we were settling into our couch with a bowl full of popcorn for our weekly serving of Heroes. However, it has been eight years since the NBC series aired its finale — and we're still keeping our fingers crossed for (another) reboot.
The sci-fi drama premiered on Sept. 25, 2006, and ran for four seasons until its last episode on Feb. 8, 2010. Fast forward nearly a decade, and luckily for us, the cast is very much still in demand. It's no surprise the character with the biggest transformation is Noah Gray-Cabey, who played Micah Sanders on Heroes.
The actor was only 10 years old when he took on the role and has since transformed into a bonafide heartthrob. Don't believe us, just take a look at his Instagram! And fun fact: Noah went on to graduate from Harvard and is also a classically trained pianist. He did appear on the spin-off Heroes: Reborn in 2015, and even paid homage to his character on Halloween, proving he is still a fan of the show.
Hayden Panettiere has also changed a lot since we saw the world-saving cheerleader on our TV screens. Since hanging up her uniform, Hayden, now 28, welcomed daughter Kaya with longtime partner Wladimir Klitschko in 2014. Playing Claire Bennet was definitely fun, but the blonde beauty seems to prefer motherhood, calling it an "out of body experience."
"As long as your kids are healthy and happy and all good, I mean, it's fabulous. It's fabulous," the actress said on Good Morning America. "You just reprioritize, and you hear that they're healthy and you don't care about yourself anymore. I mean, it's the most out of body experience where you go, 'I will completely lay myself on the line for my child,' without even a hesitation."
