Melissa-Peregrym is a top site for all things Missy Peregrym and well they dished some ultimate scoopage running into the end of the season…

To land the role of Candice Wilmer, an evil super-illusionist working on Heroes, Surrey, B.C.-native Missy Peregrym went nose-to-nose with one of the series’ most terrifying characters: the writers drafted a steamy scene in which Peregrym, 24, had to smooch with serial killer Sylar (Zachary Quinto).“The kiss was fine, [but] it wasn’t romantic at all,” Peregrym recalls in a recent interview. “I think they [casting directors] do that because it’s so awkward! And they want to see if you can pull it off.” She aced the test and, after appearing in several episodes in which she impersonated Simone (Peter Petrelli’s dead girlfriend) and HRG’s wife, Peregrym returned to guest star in the season’s final six episodes, which began last week.

Asked if Candice will get romantically involved with Sylar, who is known for sucking heroes’ brains and stealing their powers, Peregrym laughs. “It was purely for the audition.” Still, it would make a mind-blowing storyline.

Peregrym’s character is the latest mysterious figure to join the Heroes cast. As a shapeshifter, Candice messes with peoples’ heads, making them see what she wants them to see. By “becoming” HRG’s wife, for instance, Candice exposed the fact that Mr. Bennett had lied to his bosses and sent his adopted daughter, Claire the cheerleader, away.

Peregrym is grateful that Candice isn’t a shapeshifter like the X-Men’s Mystique. “I’m very glad I don’t have to be called in at 2 a.m. just so my half-nude body can be painted blue for a shoot that begins at 10 p.m.” She adds dryly, “That’s not uncomfortable at all!” In her last role, Peregrym portrayed a troubled teen and gymnast in the feature film, Stick It opposite Jeff Bridges. She’s also appeared in Smallville, Jake 2.0, and Black Sash.

As the first season of Heroes winds down, Peregrym shares that Candice will work with Micah Sanders (Noah Grey-Cabey). Candice’s employer, the shady organization that disguises itself as a Texas paper factory, needs the youngster’s ability for an undisclosed task. It’s up to Candice to deliver.

So is she good or bad? Taking a child away from his parents suggests the latter. “I think there’s a deeper agenda for Candice,” Peregrym says, explaining that she doesn’t yet know her character’s back story. She has been told, unofficially, however, that she’ll be returning for Heroes’ second season. She’s thrilled.

“I love my [Candice’s] power. I like that I’m responsible for confusing everybody.”
