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.

The writers must not let the classiest most alluring character go, (sexy plus more). As well you can't have the brothers Petrelli without this one. The network and the producer should hear what the fans say and make amends.

This is the saddest news I have ever read about any of my favorite television characters. Although the "death" of Nathan is no big surprise after all the attempts to kill this intriguing well-acted character during every timeline imaginable, I am more distressed at the story that this fine actor was treated in such a manner. (Supposedly in the past every actor was told in person in advance, not from reading a script.) Adrian deserved better than that. I will miss Nathan Petrelli. I will not miss NBC since HEROES and Nathan were the only reasons to turn to NBC. Long live NCIS and CBS!
