Heroes Wiki has an exclusive interview with Ntare Mwine, about his role (Usutu) on HEROES. Ntare says: “He is sort of serving as a spiritual guide for the characters he has interacted with so far,” … “Maybe it’s best to quote Tim Kring. I asked him how he saw the character, and he said he saw him as a Yoda-like figure. That actually gave me a lot of insight as to how he saw the character and the role he plays in terms of heroes and villains. He is one who tries to pull people to him for the forces of good.”
CBR News also has another installment of their “Behind the Eclipse” series, with writers/producers Joe Pokaski and Aron Coliete.
