Cheerleader not included
Eager fans started lining up as early as 7am and waited almost six hours for the event to start: a testament to the show’s loyal fanbase.
Masi Oka (right) stars as the endearing time-bending comic book fan Hiro Nakamura. Along with Petrelli, Hiro is one of the most popular characters in the show.
Another popular actor on the show is Hayden Panettiere, who plays the indestructible cheerleader Clare Bennet. Unfortunately for male fans, she wasn’t at the signing (despite currently dating Ventimiglia in real life).
In this recent publicity shot, the Heroes cast have apparently commandeered the set of Northern Exposure. (Masi and Oka are at the table in the foreground.)
For the screaming girls, here’s a moody publicity still of Peter Petrelli (he looks a bit like Norman Bates to us).
Milo Ventimiglia (left) stars as the idealistic, power absorbing Peter Petrelli. Some of the girls in attendance began screaming when they received their Milo-signed DVDs.
The celebrity signing event was open to anyone who had pre-ordered a copy of the Heroes Season 2 DVD. The turnout was so huge, that some unlucky fans were eventually turned away when time ran out.

Yesterday, Heroes fans in Sydney got up close and personal with Milo Ventimiglia and Masi Oka — two of the lead stars of the hit sci-fi TV show. The actors were hosting an in-store signing event at JB Hi-Fi in George Street to promote the October release of the show's second season on DVD.
