Help raise funds for Pakistan relief with this Ebay auction: Signed Heroes t-shirt.
the road ahead...
yesterday nbc announced that heroes is officially cancelled. as much as we have been aware of this possibility for a few weeks - it remains surreal to consider that the decision has been made. the action has been taken. and this chapter (or volume) is really over for all of us who worked on the show - and for all of you who watched it. i want to extend myself in a huge swell of gratitude to all of the fans. for investing in the stories we told. for engaging in the characters we created. and for standing by us through all the ups and downs of what was at times a rocky road. your commitment enriched the experience for all of us - and i know that we will always be grateful for your enthusiasm. it has been a true honor to share this time in my life with my amazing cast mates and our indomitable crew. i will certainly miss them most of all. the gift of working alongside such talented and inspiring people is something i will carry with me everywhere i go from here. and no matter where my work and my life take me - i will forever look back on heroes as the game changer. tim kring and the original creative team and writing staff took a risk on me to play gabriel gray when there was no reason to risk - besides their belief in me. they gave voice to a character that has challenged me and rewarded me beyond my wildest imagination. i will never forget that. it is humbling and deeply moving. so i thank them. and i thank you. and i assure you that while this door has closed - and as cliché as it sounds - others are flying open even as we speak. this is only the beginning in so many ways. and i hope that the fans i have made through this profound experience will follow me into many new and unchartered territories. i think the sarmy should lead the charge... it's only fitting after all. thanks for your many well wishes and for your loyalty. let us move on with gratitude. that is exactly what i intend to do.
as i'm sure a lot of you HEROES fans know - my cast mate and friend jimmy jean-louis is from haiti - and has been deeply effected by the recent tragedy that has befallen his homeland. jimmy is an incredible spirit who tirelessly commits his energy and resources to humanitarian work in haiti. he has changed many lives there through his deep compassion and generosity. now he needs our help. my heart is very open to him and his entire family during this unfathomably difficult time. please send thoughts and wishes of safety and recovery to him. to his family. and to the entire country. also - please visit his website HOLLYWOOD UNITES FOR HAITI at:
and donate in any way you can. it is a desperate situation in an already desperate country. please take this time to realize how fortunate we all are - and extend in gratitude from your heart in a time of great need. thank you everyone...
