Erin way, who plays Kat in the second season of Alphas, and Summer Glau discovered on set they had plenty in common; indeed, the two actresses were both former ballet dancer and home schooled.
Summer Glau mentions her good relations with Erin Way in a recent phone interview for SciFi Vision (see : Interview with Summer Glau and Showrunner Bruce Miller) :
Summer Glau says Erin Way has been such a blessing.
Summer loves working with girls and finding friendships through work.
She's is going to yoga with Erin Way soon lol.
She and Erin Way realized how much they have in common - she respects her; she's a phenomenal actress.
Insighful Alphas fans knew the two of them get along very well since Nightfly wrote a detailed interview for TV Overmind on August 6th. 2012; in this interview, Malik Yoba and Erin Way discuss Kat's introduction in the Alphas episode broadcast that day.

Here's what Erin Way said on working with Summer on set of Alphas
Nightfly : Alphas second season will feature Sean Astin, Lauren Holly and Summer Glau (a.k.a. Skylar Adams) as pivotal guest stars. I was curious if Erin shot many scenes with Glau, and if they'd talked about being former ballerinas?
Erin Way : "We've talked quite a bit about it. We've worked together now for a little bit and I'm enjoying it immensely. I met her for the first time several weeks ago and was extremely excited because I'm a giant Firefly fan. She's one of the sweetest, most kindest girls that I've ever met in my life. She's a lovely, lovely soul.
At one point, someone mentioned that she was going to go do a benefit for some ballet company [The Dizzy Feet Foundation’s Celebration of Dance gala] and that was the first I heard about her ballet background.
If I'd really observed her body, though, I would've guessed (it) because she definitely still carries herself like a dancer."
Continuing, "We've had lots of conversations about our favorite ballets and what we love about it. We both have very similar reasons for choosing not to continue with it too. Just last night we were joking about various combinations that you have to do across the room in ballet class: which ones we hated and which ones we enjoyed. We have that very much in common."
