Alexandra Neve is a student at University College London whose world suddenly falls apart. When her best friend jumps from the university’s rooftop, she can’t stop herself from asking, ‘Why?’ The police rule her friend’s death a suicide and for them the case is closed — so whom can she turn to for help?
Sometimes the person you need the most is the one you least expect to find, and in this case it’s none other than Ashford Egan, a blind middle-aged history professor, who’s more willing than most to listen to what she has to say.
Neve and Egan are as different as they come. She’s restless, careless at times, and fearless when the need arises, while he’s almost the complete opposite: a deep thinker with an analytical mind, a highly rational and collected individual.
As they enter the violent world of the Russian mafia, they must overcome their differences and learn to work together. It’s their only chance if they want to survive.

Daniel Dae Kim has twitted a second picture of him on the set of Hawaii Five-0, along with Summer, co-star Grace Park and other actors. Series writer Peter Lenkov has also confirmed that Summer will guest star on the show.
According to information our friend Nardia (who’s a die hard H50 fan) pieced together, Summer should guest star in episode 16 of the third season, which is titled Kekoa (Hawaiian for Brave One or The Soldier).
The episode, as far as we know, is based on the events that happened in North Korea (as briefly shown in the series’ pilot episode) and is said to be directed by Larry Teng.
If CBS’s programming follows its course, Summer’s episode should air on 18th February 2013.
Update: New picture of Summer and Joel de la Fuente.
The cable network has canceled the one-hour drama.
“We’ve been proud to present this entertaining, high-quality series for two seasons and to work with an incredible ensemble of talented actors, producers and creatives as well as our partners at BermanBraun Television,” Syfy said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter. “We’d like to thank the show’s dedicated regular viewers for their tremendous support.”
“Sad to say that ALPHAS will not be returning. What an honor to get to play Rachel for 2years & to work w/ & for the MOST AMAZING PEOPLE EVER,” wrote cast member Azita Ghanizada on Twitter on Wednesday.
This comes months after Alphas wrapped its sophomore season in October with just a little more than 1 million viewers tuning in to the finale. Alphas, starring David Strathairn, began with more than double that viewership in July 2011 with 2.5 million viewers for its series launch.
The producers of Summer’s new short-film ‘Inside The Box’ were kind enough to send us pictures of her on set.
These are the first we see of her as Sofia, the wife of a Texan cop with a haunting secret.
They will soon release a teaser and after that also a trailer with Summer. Currently they are editing the film and working on the music. You can still support the movie by liking their facebook page.
The Houston Chronicle has just posted the first interview of Summer regarding her new Christmas movie ‘Help for the Holidays’. Besides talking about the movie, she also tells us her favorite Christmas traditions and how she and her family spend this time of the year. Its a lovely interview so go check it out.
“My character does this special magic trick,” Glau said in a phone chat from Los Angeles. “She pulls candy canes out from behind people’s ears all the time. I had to work on it quite a bit. I don’t have natural talent for magic, so it was actually harder than doing stunts. But I did eventually get it.”
The winter tale was actually shot in California’s Simi Valley in “really hot weather, 110 degrees,” she says, adding that it still “felt so much like Christmas.”
And Christmas has always been an important time for the Glau family – from her childhood in San Antonio to now, at the age of 31. This December, she looks forward to spending the holiday with her parents and two sisters at her second home in Boerne.
“It’s a great Christmas house,” she says. “We always play croquet in the courtyard.”
Her family enjoys loads of other special traditions. One is making a German pastry called stollen. For 15 years, Glau, who describes herself as “a terrible baker,” was responsible for the Christmas treat. But once her baby sister, Kaitlin, was old enough, “I passed the torch to her,” she said. “Now the stollen is perfect every Christmas morning!”
That doesn’t mean she’s done with her holiday obligations. “I’m so excited,” she said. “My sister Christie and I are in charge of lights on the tree and we’re very particular.” While working on the tree, “we always play a videocassette of all our favorite Christmas cartoons,” she said. Her favorite? “A Charlie Brown Christmas.”
On Christmas, guests are amazed, she said, at “how slowly we open gifts. We take hours and hours. We hug each other after each gift is opened.” This is accompanied by Christmas songs from Bing Crosby. Her dad doesn’t like them, Glau said, but “I think Bing does the best carols.”
“Christmas is all about loved ones,” Glau said, “and people should take time out to really celebrate their family.”
