Adrian Pasdar's acting stint on the NBC show will soon come to an end as the writers have decided to kill his character.
The "Heroes" character who will be killed off is none other than Peter's flying brother. Nikki Finke of Deadline Hollywood said that Adrian Pasdar is let go from the show and Kristin Dos Santos from E! Online added that the actor was not fired but he found it out from reading the script.
Nathan was actually one of the characters whom actor Greg Grunberg said was safe when the news about a major death in "Heroes" leaked last month. Santos' source said, "I know Adrian is getting killed off and was pissed about it because they didn't tell him...Greg could be talking about another death but I think he's probably covering and throwing fans off." There is still no word on how Nathan's exit from the show will be.
"Heroes" which is struggling to stay on top of the surface with its rating, has been killing off characters in the past seasons but never an original character as major as Nathan. Nevertheless, the show is adding new characters with the latest one being Eli, someone with a close tie to Carnival's leader, Samuel. Eli is a starring vehicle for "The Riches" actor Todd Stashwick.
