Nazneen Contractor Heroes Reborn

Heroes Reborn just got a little more mysterious, thanks to Covert Affairs actress Nazneen Contractor.

She will recur on NBC’s upcoming revival series as Farah, a secretive woman who is “militant, tough and stoic,” our sister site Deadline reports.

Airing Thursdays this fall, Reborn is a continuation of NBC’s superhero drama Heroes, which originally ran for four seasons from 2006 to 2010.

Contractor joins a cast that includes Heroes returnees Greg Grunberg, Jack Coleman, Masi Oka and Jimmy Jean-Louis, as well as new additions Zachary Levi (Chuck), Dylan Bruce (Orphan Black), Robbie Kay (Once Upon a Time) and Ryan Guzman (Pretty Little Liars).

Contractor’s TV credits also include 24 and Revenge, as well as recent guest spots on Scorpion, Castle and Stalker.
