I interviewed Hayden Panettiere back when she was known as “the cheerleader on [amazon_link id=”B004DAG1SS” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Heroes[/amazon_link],” and she was one of the sweetest celebrities I’ve ever talked with. She even said hi to my daughter when I asked if it would be ok, which automatically made her a hero in my book.
Now she’s moved on to other things, and can be seen on ABC’s Nashville (@Nashville_ABC, Wed., 10/9c) this fall with Connie Britton (Friday Night Lights, @nbcfnl), Jonathan Jackson (Lucky from @GeneralHospital), and Powers Boothe (another favorite interview of mine). I love that there are so many shows focused on music right now, like Smash and Glee, and like my daughter says, anything Hayden does seems to go big. With a built-in country music fan base, I’m guessing Nashville will fall into that category.
Here’s Hayden at last night’s Critics’ Choice Television Awards (check out all the winners and follow @CriticsChoice). Hmmm… I hope she’s getting enough to eat! We don’t want you shrinking to nothing, Hayden.
