Hooked on The Event yet? Channel 4’s alien conspiracy-type drama has the makings of brilliance, but also has the potential to ‘do a Lost’ and give us less answers than a labrador’s bar examination.
Fear not, for even in the most perplexed, painfully confused lows that the series will inevitably bring, it appears there will forever be wonderful women to ease the cranial hurt.
Take the two that have exploded onto screen already: Leila Buchanan (played by Sarah Roemer) and Vicky Roberts (played by Taylor Cole). Buchanan is the stunning would-be fiancée of main character Sean Walker, who suddenly goes missing during a cruise in the Caribbean. Fortunately she doesn’t go completely missing. That would be disaster. Roberts, meanwhile, is probably the best looking government agent-cum-alien hunter we’ve ever seen.
Anyway, check out our gallery of the two that have touched our hearts so far. And there’s bound to be more. As the season progresses…
Roemer fact: In 2006 she made her screen debut portraying Lacey Kimble in the horror film The Grudge 2.
Roemer fact: In 2007 she starred alongside Shia LaBeouf, Carrie-Anne Moss and David Morse in movie thriller Disturbia.

Romer fact: In 2009 Roemer portrayed Andy Wilson, the daughter of Richard Gere's character Parker Wilson in the American drama film Hachiko: A Dog's Story. The film is an American adaptation of the 1987 Japanese film Hachikō Monogatari. That's a gripping fact, eh?
