The producers of inside the box have a few more infos about Summer’s character Sofia.

SOFIA is a beautiful and delicate Southern girl in her late 20’s. She is strong and works hard everyday to take care of her family. Even though she has struggled a lot, she is still honest and innocent like a little girl. She is madly in love with her husband, but her confidence starts breaking apart when she suspects that he is hiding a secret from her.

Shooting should start in the next 2 weeks, so stay tuned. :)

Awesome news. It looks like Summer is going to shoot another short film titled inside the box. According to the official facebook profile, the shooting will start this fall and is directed and written by David-Martin-Porras and produced by LA PANDA productions.

Summer will play the role of Sofia, the wife of Matt, played by Wilson Bethel, who is best known for his role in Hart of Dixie.

The short film will be sort of a teaser for another movie titled A Texas Story. Both, short film and movie will deal with the topic of HIV criminalization. The film itself was completely financed by fund raising. Check out indiegogo for more information regarding the creation of the short.

Here is a short synopsis…

When the local District Attorney comes knocking, a Texan cop is forced to face a secret that he’s been hiding from his wife in an effort to keep his family together.

Wilson Bethel and Summer Glau will have a similar moment [as in TSCC, when John checks Cameron] in INSIDE THE BOX in which an intimate moment between them gets interrupted.

and here a description.

“Inside the Box” is more than a short film. It will serve as a teaser for David’s next project, the feature film “A Texas Story,” which we are very excited to report has made it to the final round of the Sundance Screenwriters Lab.
Both the short and the feature deal with HIV criminalization. Many laws that are currently being enforced in dozens of U.S. states and in several countries around the world are rooted in nothing but ignorance and have put many innocent people in jail.

There is also a short clip that gives you more information about the film.

Note that there is no official announcement, so we don’t know for sure if Summer will be part of this project.

MySanAntonio has some more pictures of Summer as an elf, in the upcoming Hallmark film ‘Help for the Holidays’.

You’ve loved her as a cyborg in “Terminator,” a gifted emotional mess in “Firefly” and an alpha in “Alphas.” Soon, you can see San Antonio’s own Summer Glau in another fantasy role: a Christmas elf!
In “Help for the Holidays,” coming to Hallmark Channel on Dec. 9, Glau is Santa’s elf Christine, who spends her days making toys and getting progressively bored to tears.

But lo! An emergency wish from a little boy in L.A. gives her the reprieve she’s been hoping for. The kid is desperate for a genuine family Christmas – something his workaholic parents never provide — and it’s pretty Christine who gets dispatched to L.A. to help make it happen.

She interviews to be the nanny for kids Ally (Izabela Vidovic, “Christmas Angel”) and Will (Mason Cook,” Spy Kids: All the Time in the World”), who are too often dismissed as an afterthought by mom Sara (Eva La Rue of “CSI: Miami”) and dad Scott (Dan Gauthier of “One Life to Live”). After Christine becomes the nanny, everything gets better. The kids are thrilled with their new elf-turned-caregiver.

There is a little more detailed synopsis for Summer’s Christmas movie Help for the Holidays online, which will air on December 9 at 8 pm et on the Hallmark Channel.

from Hallmark’s press release, October 2012) You know, it’s hard out there for an elf. First of all, you live up in the North Pole, where there’s really nothing much to do. No malls. A crummy dating scene. And good luck trying to find a decent restaurant. Now imagine that this elf is young and beautiful, and she’s stuck making toys all day long – and all night long, too. This is the premise that launches “Help for the Holidays,” a charming Hallmark Channel Original Movie World Premiere on Sunday, December 9 (8p.m. ET/PT, 7C). The film stars Summer Glau (“Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles”) as Santa’s elf Christine, a young lass busily making toys and getting bored to tears up in the Pole. Christine is convinced that this is pretty much as good as it’s going to get when Santa receives an emergency wish from a little boy in Los Angeles. It seems that the boy is desperate for a genuine family Christmas with his too-busy clan, and it’s Christine who gets dispatched to L.A. to help make it happen. She interviews to be the nanny for kids Ally (Izabela Vidovic, “Christmas Angel”) and Will (Mason Cook,” Spy Kids: All the Time in the World”), who are too often left unsupervised and dismissed as an afterthought by their parents Sara (Eva La Rue of “CSI: Miami”) and Scott (Dan Gauthier of “One Life to Live”). Mom and Dad, you see, run a mega-successful holiday store, and as a result their kids too often get left without a real Christmas to call their own.
After Christine becomes the nanny, everything falls into place nicely. The kids are happy with their new elf-turned-caregiver. And Christine even appears to be falling for their hunky uncle Dave (John Brotherton, “Jane by Design”). But then Sara starts feeling insecure about how much Christine has become entrenched in their lives and wants to send her packing back to the north. Oh no! Well, don’t worry. We’re hoping all will still end well in ‘Help for the Holidays,” because elves, after all, deserve happiness, too.

So that episode was a blast, right ? Of course we don’t want to spoiler anyone that hasn’t seen it yet, but that definitely calls for a third season. Summer mentioned in her tweets and the previous interviews that she liked the scene were all girls were together. And yes, the scenes were really great. It was nice to see her hang out with the team. Also the elevator scenes and … no, you better see it for yourself. :)

Anyway, here are the caps from tonights season final of Alphas.

Here is the great scene with all the girls. :) Check out the video section for more.
