The actress on what it’s like to play part of the Petrelli family on Heroes, and the wife of 24’s evil Graem, all at the same time.
Rena Sofer is a very familiar face on television, having worked consistently for more than a decade. The beautiful actress first gained fame on the soap opera General Hospital, while Saved by the Bell fans might also remember her as Zach Morris’s love interest in Saved by the Bell: Hawaiian Style. In the years since, she’s had roles on Melrose Place, Ed and Just Shoot Me, along with some short-lived series like Coupling and Blind Justice.. However, “short-lived” is hardly the term attached to the hit series 24, nor to Heroes, an out of the gate hit, which has already been renewed for a second season. And Rena Sofer is now a part of both of them, playing a member of an integral family from each series: The Bauers and the Petrellis.
