  • Her performance on Veronica Mars is one of the reasons the show was so successful and well-liked, and her role on Heroes and voicing the narrator on Gossip Girl just reconfirm that. -- Rvb strongbad 01:58, 19 January 2008 (EST)
  • She is the main reason I started watching the show and was still superb as Veronica in the third season, even though many people had complaints about the character and her portrayal. Her recent TV roles and upcoming movie roles show that she still a bright and successful career ahead of her. -- HuskersRule 18:31, 7 February 2008 (EST)

  • The seventh season might not have been that great overall but her performance was still spot on. Especially after the show moved on from the silly marriage plot. She really showed her acting chops through her character's father's heart attack and daughter's inevitable leaving. In the series finale especially she really shined through some really emotional and challenging scenes. --The-jam 17:20, 30 January 2008 (EST)

  • I've gotta admit, as a heterosexual male, I watched almost the entire first season of this show, mostly because of how likable—let's face it, adorable—the whole cast was. But as the show's center, Heche was the most adorable of them all. She played the perfect romantic comedy-drama heroine—smart, quirky and entirely charming. The best romantic comedies work when the audience falls in love with the leads at the same time as the characters, and Heche made it very easy to fall in love with Marin Frist. -- JCaesartalk 08:25, 20 January 2008 (EST)
  • I find this series way more enjoyable then it seems like I should on face value and Heche is a large part of that. At first I watched mostly for the small town focus as I really like that type of show and I didn't really like Marin that much. Then as I got more into it I grew to like Marin more and more mostly because Heche makes her seem so raw and sincere. (Not the first time this has happened to me with this type of show see Lauren Graham above). --The-jam 17:20, 30 January 2008 (EST)
