Missy Peregrym hasn’t had “Heroes” worship for a while, but she’d still be sad if the show’s end has come.
Most recently of “Reaper,” the actress played illusion-generator Candice Wilmer early in the run of the NBC fantasy-drama series, which the network hasn’t renewed for a fifth season yet. She tells Zap2it, “I know there are a lot of fans for ‘Heroes,’ and I think it would be a bummer if they canceled it this soon.
“It’s a different point of view when you’re working in it, because you understand that you just never know how long things are long to last. They’ve had a pretty great run so far, and I hope it can carry on for them.”
Peregrym admits she hasn’t kept up with “Heroes” since leaving the show — “I’m pretty terrible at watching TV” — and she attributes that largely to the long hours she spent making “Reaper” for The CW two seasons. Starring next in “Rookie Blue,” an ABC police drama premiering June 24, the Montreal native has kept working steadily in television projects since her “Heroes” tenure.
“I have no complaints at all,” she says. “I’ve been really blessed.”
