From Alphas S02 DVD gag reel: Azita Guanizada calls Summer Glau's character Skylar by her real name...probably because they're friends in real life smile

Azita: "This way, Summer..."
Azita, realizing her mistake: "..Skylar! S**t..."
Summer: " biggrin "

Azita Guanizada calls Summer Glau's character Skylar by her real name on Alphas

For those who wonder if everyone (non Alphas humans and the Alphas team) were dead: According to Skylar Adams, the vast majority of normal humans exposed to the device would die, while alphas would experience unconsciousness, followed by an increase of alpha abilities.

Just a little gift for all all fans of Alphas and of the beautiful Laura Mennel, aka Nina Theroux on Alphas.

HQ photos (2000x3000 px) of Laura taken at Entertainment Weekly's Comic-Con 2012 Celebration, held at the Hard Rock Hotel Float Lounge on July 14th 2012. (Photo Credit: Byron Purvis)

Feel free to grab these pictures (for non commercial use); crediting and/or linking to the Summer Glau Wiki would be nice.


I know I am late lol !
I can see she is well liked by quite a few in Summer Glau fandom wink As seen by Kai & you.

She has that quality like Summer to play complex characters & put such sensitivty in many of them.

As seen from Summer in FireFly & Laura in SG1, Andromeda etc that
they often play a woman running from touble.
Their sensitive personality & their kind facial expressions helps them play a character a person can feel for.

I realised that Alphas is just another 4400 and Heroes.

You're right, Alphas has some similarities with both shows.

Both Mahershala Ali and Summer Glau were in The 4400 and Alphas.

Mahershala Ali in The 4400On Set

The plot of tonights episode of Alphas
Quote
2x07 'Gods and Monsters'
"A young Alpha reveals a deadly mind control ability that leads to a showdown between Rosen and Stanton Parish."


looks a lot like this one from The 4400
Quote
4x01 'The Wrath of Graham'
A high school kid named Graham develops an ability which makes people worship him to the point of sacrificing their lives for him. Jordan Collier shows up to deal with the high school kid.


You'll notice that both leaders of the "people with extraordinary abilities", Stanton Parish for Alphas and Jordan Collier for The 4400, share the same taste for radical methods and both have in mind to spread out extra-abilities to more people (including "normal" people, also seen in The X-Men); they developp this "messiah complex" seen in BSG Season 4 Gaius Baltar.



Funny thing is that season one showrunner, Ira Steven Behr, replaced by Eureka's Bruce Miller in season two, worked on The 4400.


Both Ira & Bruce Miller worked on the 4400 wink Writer/Producer Robert Hewitt Wolfe worked on both shows too.
Garret Dillahunt also appeared in both the 4400 & Alphas, also Laura Mennell too.

After watching the 4400 all the way thru:
Stanton Parish is like Isabelle + Jordan Collier.
Summer Glau as Tess in 4400 is basicly the 4400 version of Nina Theroux(Laura Mennell).

Here is something cool:
In 4400 Summer Glau & Mahershala are at one point both on Team Collier working together.
In Alphas Mahershala is trying to capture Summer Glau and she stuns him with her invention.

In 4400, in one episode Summer Glau as Tess is living in a utopia town for 4400s & promicin positives.
In Alphas, Summer Glau in season 2 episode Alphaville she is living in a utopia town for Alphas.

John85. Hi again. re your post #576 above. Yes the similarities are too similar for my liking. I don't like people copying other peoples ideas too much. I appreciate that cult leaders are supposed to have long hair and beards, it is how people imagine them a lot of the time.
Yet, in the series Banshee, the cult leader was clean cut & his cult was more of a bible belt type of storyline. The only difference was, he was sometimes good and sometimes bad. He also had a hidden sexual tension which he tried to keep under wraps, only revealing it once with his own daughter.
It was a very sexy series and I have kept one episode on disc because I found it very 'hot'. (Not disgusting or pornographic either).

It was made by the same people so I dont think it is copying.
Before 4400 there was a show called Mutant X which was cancelled the year 4400 debuted.

I finished watching Alphas, it was a fascinating show. Laura, Azita and Summer were gorgeous.
Thank you for the recommendation, John85.

The 20 Best SyFy Channel Programs Of All-Time 
Quote
#12 - Alphas.  A sort-of real world X-Men, the show features a group of people with extraordinary heightened abilities. The characters are each as interesting and unique as the X-Men themselves, and leading to group is Dr.Lee Rosen, played by Oscar nominee and Emmy winner David Strathairn.
