Alphas - Starry Constellation Magazine: Azita Ghanizada Interview

... Q. What can you tell us about the premise for "Alphas" and about your character?

A. "Alphas" was created by Zak Penn and Michael Karnow and they kind of wanted to write something that was a little "The X-Files" meets Xmen in a sense that it's not your normal show about superheroes , although everybody has superhero abilities. They are very much ordinary individuals with incredible abilities. They kind of all come under this really amazing doctor, Dr. Rosen, who is played by the tremendously talented David Strathairn. He oversees a group of four our five Alphas that all have these different abilities and we solve crimes for different government agencies with these type of "X-Files" crimes that really nobody else could solve and we use our super abilities. My character actually has the ability to hyper intensify all of her senses so she can super see, hear, smell, touch, and taste. She uses those to benefit solving these crimes and she's a little awkward because of it. She kind of goes into these little trances when she has to call upon one of her sense because she can delineate each one. She kind of goes into these little trances and it was a little scarring as a child to kind of go into these trances, I don't think she really knew how to control it when she was younger. She could hear what everybody always said about her so she's a little awkward and a little sweet and she's trying her best to break out of her shell and become an adult and use these powers for the good of mankind...


Alphas will premiere on Syfy in the summer of 2011.
