Summer Glau is an American prima ballerina and actress, best known for for her iconic characters River Tam (Firefly/Serenity) and Cameron Philips (Terminator:TSCC)
Summer got her start in Joss Whedon’s Angel playing a cursed Prima Ballerina in the 2002 episode “Waiting in the wings”. Contributing to her Sci Fi credit were roles in USA’s The 4400 as Tess, a Schizophrenic that can control others with her mind and her recent return to the Whedonverse in Dollhouse as Echo’s long lost nemesis Bennet Halverson.
2009 saw Summer fulfilling two lifelong dreams by starring in both a Lifetime movie (Deadly Honeymoon), and filming a Western (Legend of Hells Gate).
Summer returned to TV screens in NBC’s “THE CAPE” as Orwell, an investigative blogger who teams up with Vince/The Cape in order to fight crime and restore justice. Since then she has appeared in SyFy’s ALPHAS, as Tech Genius Skylar, as well as guest spots in CHUCK, Big Bang Theory and Greys Anatomy. She will next be seen in the LARP comedy “Knights of Badassdom” and is due to be a 2013-14 series regular in the hit DC series ARROW!
It is with the heaviest of hearts that we have to announce that Summer Glau has had to postpone her visit. An opportunity to vie for a TV series lead came up that despite every effort, to adjust her screen test call, could not be moved or tested for except in person.
Summer is very distraught about this minutes to midnight cancelation, as she understands how much love her fans have for her, yet hopes those same fans will wish her the best in seeking to remain on their screens doing what she does best, which is deliver outstanding performances.
Lastly, Summer hopes to see you all during a tour during the next 12 months to make up for the disappointment of this time round while entertaining you on the small screen with performances in Arrow and… Well, we’ll just have to see about the rest.
