About this deal

Raven, Maddy (4 February 2021). " 'Alex Rider' Season 2 starts filming at Goldney Hall". Epigram. University of Bristol. Not much is known about Alex's mother, Helen, but because she knew about John's profession and loved John, it can be assumed that she cared a lot for Alex and was a loving mother in the three months she knew him. She died in a arranged plane crash because of her husband's risky profession, leaving behind her orphaned son. [15] Ian Rider Alex is onychophagiac (bites his nails). This is a common habit associated with anxiety due to nervousness and stress, revealed in Point Blanc. [18] Anthony Horowitz (9 November 2009). "Alex Rider exclusive: Incident in Nice". The Times. London . Retrieved 15 November 2009.

Toby Stephens, who recently appeared in Netflix’s Lost In Space, will be playing tech billionaire Damian Cray.

The second season will have a big addition to the cast and will follow the teenage spy as he is recruited by MI6’s Department of Special Operations. Alexander Rider was born on February 13, 1996, [14] in East London, England, to John Rider, an MI6 agent and Helen Rider, at the time working as a nurse in radiology.

His immense body of work also includes Marvel superheroes such as Daredevil and Shang-Chi, the Alex Rider graphic novels, the post-apocalypse epic Wasteland, and more. He wrote and directed the film Crossover Point, made entirely in quarantine during the coronavirus pandemic. Featuring a desolate mountain location and a high-stakes snowboard chase, book fans will know that Sony’s new Alex Rider TV show is adapted from ‘Point Blanc’, the second in Anthony Horowitz’s hugely successful teen spy thriller novels. Andrew Buchan as Ian Rider (season 1), [2] an agent of the Department of Special Operations and Alex's uncle.

In July 2018, it was reported that Sony Pictures Television had replaced ITV as Eleventh Hour Film's distribution and financial partner for a new Alex Rider television series. Sony Pictures Television's international and worldwide distribution divisions under Wayne Garvie and Keith Le Goy were attached to the film series. Burt had adapted Point Blanc, the second book in the Alex Rider novel series, for television. Horowitz will serve as executive producer for the series. [9] Yassen, to keep his conditions intact and to assist him in his upcoming missions, individually practices marksmanship, works out in the gym or goes for a run. He does this at night and only sleeps for at most four hours. He also practices various languages. Additionally, he is shown to have mastered various skills and talents such as expertise of martial arts, aviation (Helicopters, he received his license 5 years before the Sormbreaker accident), vehicular warfare, meditation, combat with various weapons and stealth. It is also the only novel where MI6 does not officially assist Alex during his activities, except, of course, for Smithers' gadgets. This is a solid book! It's a big step up from the last one and you can see how much the world of Alex Rider has matured just in this one book and I am honestly so excited to read the next one! It's going to be so much fun to see where the story goes next! (yes, I have read this whole series before, but I've forgotten most of what happens in the second half) Following his parent's demise, Alex’s paternal uncle Ian Rider adopted Alex and raised him in his house in Chelsea, London. Ian and Alex had a close relationship, doing practically everything together when Ian was home, which was not often as Ian was also secretly a secret agent who worked for the Special Operations Division of MI6.

Toby Stephens as Damian Cray (season 2), [3] an energetic tech billionaire who is poised to launch a new version of his best-selling computer game, Feathered Serpent.Yassen (born 'Yasha' Gregorovich) was born in the village of Estrov, in Russia. His father was a researcher of chemical properties and a biologist; engaged in research at the University of Moscow. He always kept the true nature of his job a secret from Yassen. Alex does not like horse riding. This is a notable irony about Alex, as his name is Rider - and riding is the only sport he hates. [18] Alex once shot a worker at Sayle Enterprises. It is unknown exactly who he murdered, because they don't mention this in the novel Stormbreaker or show this happening in the movie. [13]

Alex is shown to attend Brookland Comprehensive School in almost every book and also in the movie and TV series. [12] Tom Harris is one of Alex's friends at Brookland. Raised in a somewhat different environment than most other boys his age, Alex tends not to relate much to his peers and does not have many close friends in the school. However, as he is not the type to seek popularity, Alex doesn’t mind this much.When it becomes clear that Point Blanc and Greif's Gemini Project are exposed, he reports this to SCORPIA and researches Alex Rider. At the climax of the season, when MI6 cannot tell the difference between Alex and Dr. Greif's clone, Yassen shoots the clone from a sniper position, saving Alex. Ark Angel - Nikolei Drevin insisted that Alex joined him presumably to allow him to recover from his near-fatal "bicycle accident".
