According to SciFi Wire, Heroes actress Eriko Tamura, who played Takeo, Masi Oka's Hiro Nakamura's love interest in the 16th century, has given some tidbits on what we can expect from her character in the third season.
She said that she was supposed to be transported to the present last season, but those scripts were never filmed due to the writers strike. However, she will be in the 21st Century this upcoming season.
"I am going to be in the present, yes," Tamura said in an interview. "I actually had a few episodes of the script then," Tamura said. "Suddenly, the strike happened, so we had to stop the shooting."
The series begins production in May on the third season, but she didn't have any further info to divulge about the new season.
"We are not to that point where they think about the storylines yet ... because of the strike."
