Cabrera's Isaac Killed Off of NBC's "Heroes"
You may have guessed shaving seen the promotional stills that NBC originally published and then took down (too late, of course) that Santiago Cabrera's character, painter Isaac Mendez was the one who bit the dust on last night's "Heroes."
As one the images the prophet painted in early episodes suggested, he was killed by Zachary Quinto's serial killer Sylar by, yes, getting his skull lopped off and brain taken out.
Cabrera says to TV Guide: "I'm sad to go, but was prepared for it. I always said that if this day came, I'd bow my head in thanks because it's been an amazing ride."
The actor reveals he got his walking papers shortly after his character accidentally shot to death his former girlfriend Simone (Tawny Cypress).
The character was crucified on one of his paintings, hands and feet pierced by his own paintbrushes in more of a "Da Vinci Code" pose, with legs apart in order to avoid blasphemy.
The drama creator Tim Kring reveals: ""When you have a villain as vicious as Sylar, some characters have to pay the ultimate price; we've set the bar high as a show that plays truthfully with the audience — and we have to keep delivering on that."
Apparently, the show is going into a completely direction for its second season, and Cabrera's character was simply not a part of that.
