Thanks Ellie....but now I'm very confused about her role as "Annie" on Heroes. While looking for Heroes spoilers, I came across the Comic-Con preview and there is a completely different actress playing who seems to be Claire's college roommate:


then I see this article while checking IMDB:


"Heroes" debuts Claire's lesbian love interest at Comic-Con

28 July 2009 11:00 AM, PDT | From AfterEllen.com | See recent AfterEllen.com news

In a case of life imitating art, reports of the Heroes lesbian storyline have shifted and morphed more times than Sylar. Initially it was announced that Rachel Melvin of Days of Our Lives would play Claire's love interest in Season 4, but over the weekend, it was revealed that Madeline Zima would play Gretchen, Claire's college roommate and fling. Zima's last role was Mia Cross, the jailbait vixen who seduces David Duchovny's character Hank Moody in Californication.

so I'm wondering if Claire has 2 roommates and Rachel is just one of them? I hope this doesn't mean she has a smaller role than I thought. I was really looking forward to seeing her on Heroes
l'll try to answer this, since I'm a huge Heroes fan.

Yes, from what we can tell, there will be 2 roommates for Claire. One is played by RM, the other will be played by the actress who was on the Nanny (Zima). Earlier on, it was reported it would be RM's character who would be participating in a lesbian kiss with Claire (if I'm not mistaken, it came from Kristen on TV Guide). The news went like wildfire crazy, and most fans see it as a stunt rather then an actual storyline.

Since then, it's obvious now the roommate with the bigger part will be Zima's, (she shows up all throughout this season's new "trailer") so therefore everyone presumes it's Zima's character who will be the one to tempt Claire to experiment. As far as RM's part (Annie), we have little information outside of the misreported "kiss" and that she will be a roommate. RM's own blog which talks of her next projects he is already working on leads me to believe the part will only show up in the premier.

And that's all I have so far, hope it helps.
ah, ok, thanks for the info :)
