Heroes is one of the surprise hits of the season but Pasdar had a feeling the show would connect with fans earlier this summer when the show had a sneak preview at the San Diego Comic-Con.
He says the cast members appeared on stage in front of thousands of fans and the fire marshall told producer Jeff Loeb that they had to vacate the premises.
Pasdar adds: Jeff said, You tell them and pointed at the audience and the fire marshall just walked away.
It was at that moment, Pasdar realized there was a huge audience that would watch the show but knew it was the cast and crews responsibility to keep them watching.
Ventigmilia also says he had a good feeling about the show when he first read the script and it required him to play something other than the misled youth characters he did on Gilmore Girls and American Dreams.
