British actress/model Judith Shekoni, who is best know for her role as Zafrina in The Twilight Saga, will join the cast of NBC's Heroes spin-off Heroes Reborn as a series regular, it has been reported.

Shekoni, 32, will star in the highly-anticipated series alongside Zachary Levi, Jack Coleman, and as we found out yesterday, Robbie Kay. According to Deadline, she will play a "mysterious" new character. But that's about all we know at the minute.

The original Heroes series chronicled the life-changing stories of a group of normal people who suddenly discovered they had superhuman abilities. Eventually they learned they were part of a grand plan that brought them together to change the world. It's not yet known exactly how the new Heroes Reborn series will relate or work with the original saga.

Shekoni has also appeared in movies Garfield 2, The World Is Not Enough, and The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.

Watch the teaser for Heroes Reborn below.

I can't wait for this to start!

Heroes Reborn will premiere on NBC later this year.
