IGN TV: Let’s start with Heroes. How much can we expect to see you by the finale?

George Takei: I am in the finale. There is also a spectacularly physical scene in the episode just prior to the finale. For two days afterwards I was sore all over. I’m an athlete, I run – but I discovered muscles that I didn’t know I had. So don’t miss that episode.

IGN TV: Were you surprised this role evolved from what was essentially a cameo?

Takei: Well, in my very first episode I didn’t have a word to say! It was a piece of cake. It was a night shot, I showed up, got into makeup and waited until it got dark. Then I got out of a car, glared, and then “cut!” and that was all that was required.

IGN TV: And did you think that was it?

Takei: Oh no, I knew I about a subsequent episode and one more after that.

IGN TV: Does Mister Nakamura have powers?

Takei: Mr. Kaito Nakamura. They keep you in ignorance but with each subsequent script you make discoveries. I first thought, and they told me, that I was one of the richest men in the world. A powerful industrial magnate, who was very concerned, indeed worried, about this weirdo son of mine. I cared about the family legacy, we have an important heritage and here is my only son. So I’m going to pound some sense and discipline into him, with tough love. That’s what I thought it was – just a father-son relationship. Then I find that I’m much more intertwined. I learn that I ordered HRG to raise this baby girl who turns out to be Claire. So yes, Nakamura is very much involved to a degree that suggests it’s not a totally innocent involvement. But, everything in Heroes is ambiguous. Is he empowered for good or for evil? Stay tuned. The surface is never as it seems.
