Good news, fans of Jessalyn Gilsig, who plays Claire Bennet’s biological mother from Heroes Season 1, and who was sorely missing entirely from Season 2. According to TV Guide, Gilsig will be reprising her role as Claire’s pyro mom, Meridith Gordon, for not one, or two, but five episodes in Season 3.
More from Ask Ausiello on the return:
Casting scoop! Sources confirm to me exclusively that Jessalyn Gilsig is reprising her role as Claire’s white-trash mom for five episodes next season.
I could have done without calling Meredith Gordon’s character “white trash”, though. That sounds a tad insulting to me. But then again, I’m sure Ausiello is a West Coast elitist who thinks anyone who doesn’t live in California are rednecks.
But I digress.
Meredith Gordon and her groovy power is back. Woohoo! Lets hope Kring lets her do more than just show it off to her daughter this time. I’d like to see what someone with that kind of power could do against, say, Sylar…
