The gallery has been updated with UHQ photos of Summer Glau taken at various conventions thanks to Flickr user kelita13, who kindly agreed to share with us these great images featuring Summer and her Alphas and Firefly co-stars.
Alphas panel at Comic Con 2012.
Summer Glau looked stunning in her little Summer dress at the Alphas panel at San Diego Comic Con 2012. She discussed her role in Alphas and how Sci-Fi elevated women's role in the film industry. Summer's sentiments echoed by co-star Azita Ghanizada.
Firefly 10th Anniversary Panel at Comic Con 2012.
Joss Whedon, Nathan Fillion, Alan Tudyk, Summer Glau, Adam Baldwin, Sean Maher, Jose Molina and Tim Minear reunite for a hilarious, heartfelt Firefly 10th anniversary panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2012.
Summer Glau Panel at Emerald City Comicon 2012.
Summer Glau talks about her roles on such shows as Firefly, The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Dollhouse and The Cape, as well as her upcoming film Knights of Badassdom during her panel at Emerald City Comicon 2012.
We have acquired another agency headshot photo featuring a lovely Summer Glau wearing a little floral dress. The headshot shows a beautiful Summer wearing minimal make-up in a 'I look great in any sort of lighting and I'm cute without trying to be sexy' sort of way.
This type of 8x10" photo is usually sent out by the actor’s talent agent to get them a job on a TV show or movie. The photo came with one of Summer's resume. A resume consists of Film & TV credits, Theatre, Special Skills, Training. The only contact info is management and agencies. No personal contact info!
Watch more agency photos of Summer Glau in the Gallery.
One funny anecdote: the "Televison" section of the resume mentions a guest appearance in The CW's Supernatural...whereas Summer did not appear in the TV show starring Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki. As we mentioned it many times, a press release issued by The CW (see excerpt below) credits by mistake Summer Glau in season 2 episode 4 of Supernatural, titled 'Children Shouldn't Play with Dead Things', that aired on October 19, 2006.
"Dean (Jensen Ackles) and Sam (Jared Padalecki) investigate the murder of a college student (guest star Summer Glau) who has come back from the dead seeking revenge on those who mistreated her while she was alive. "
The episode summaries usually come out long before the episode, so maybe it was planned that Summer Glau would be on, and then it never happened. To this day, the plot summary at The CW website has not been fixed.
Side note : this photo and the accompagnying resume have been bought on ebay from a seller specialised in agency photos of actors.
Summer Glau's reprogrammed Terminator Cameron in the TV show Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles and Chloe Moretz's vigilante Hit-Girl in the movie Kick-Ass have in common the fact that they are two of the most badass girls (well, technically a cyborg for one of them) in recent movie/tv show history. On the fashion front, Cameron and Hit-Girl's most iconic piece of clothing are without a doubt their purple leather jackets.
Summer Glau's character Cameron was very complex as she had to balance herself between human abilities and robotic nature. She was supported by tremendous outfits that enhanced sensitivity of the role. Her attractive leather jacket having purple color gained instant popularity after her role was introduced in the series and Cameron even showed concerns about it when the Connors where robbed. FYI, Summer Glau rocked on in a leather biker style jacket by Rock & Republic.
Find below a description as well as photos of the iconic purple leather jacket worn by Summer Glau as Cameron in 'Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles' in season 1 and 2 (and in promotional photos).
Rock & Republic Leather Jacket
Soft leather biker style jacket. Front zip fastening. Two front zip pockets. Adjustable buckle detail around collar. Zip pocket on right arm. Zip detail on sleeves. Stuf detail on front and back. Knitted stretch waist band. All metal zip pulls are embossed with R&R skull logo. Price: £415
Cameron's Rock & Republic Purple Leather Jacket is not available anymore but you can buy a replica at these two specialized websites Trendy Leather Jacket and Leather Club.
Whether you’re putting together the ultimate Kick-Ass costume or searching for a new motorcycle jacket, National Entertainment Collectibles Association (NECA) has released an exclusive Hit-Girl Prop Replica Leather Jacket. The replica is based on the actual jacket worn by Hit-Girl on-screen in the popular movie, KICK-ASS 2.
Kick Ass 2 Hit Girl Prop Replica Leather Jacket
It's made of high-quality purple metallic leather with extensive stitched detailing. The jacket is tailored with princess seams, zip front and invisible wrist zippers for a sleek, close-fitted look. Topstitched black leather patches at elbows and shoulders are padded for vigilante style and protection. Fully lined in purple satin.
Kick Ass 2 Hit Girl Prop Replica Leather Jacket can be purchased on Amazon (for $199.99) or on eBay.
Hawkeye (Kate Bishop)
Hawkeye (Katherine "Kate" Bishop) is a fictional character. She is a member of the Young Avengers, a team of superheroes in the Marvel Comics' shared universe, the Marvel Universe. She is the third character and first female to take the Hawkeye name after Clint Barton of the Avengers and Wyatt McDonald of the Squadron Supreme. Her costume appearance is patterned on the first Hawkeye and Mockingbird.
There are some resemblances between Summer Glau as Cameron and The Avenger's Kate Bishop, don't you think?
Don't mess with girls wearing purple leather jackets!
Go behind the scenes of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles season 2 premiere "Samson & Delilah" with Summer Glau, Lena Headey and Thomas Dekker.
As you can see in these behind-the-scenes pictures, Summer Glau is sporting deep cuts all over her face and looks seriously badass as she was shooting a scene for the first episode of TSCC season 2 in downtown Los Angeles. Also on set were Lena Headey and Thomas Dekker, who were covered with cuts and bruises. Thomas and Lena were seen laughing in between takes, despite their characters being the target of a glitchy Terminator.
Enjoy these behind-the-scenes pictures of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles 2.01 'Samson & Delilah' that were release on June 2, 2008.
Leather boots are an integral part of the Terminator's look...just ask Cameron phillips or Sarah Connor in Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.
Anyone notice the costuming choices as far as female footwear goes in TSCC? Both Lena Headey and Summer Glau wear these multi-strap biker boots - almost constantly. I guess they make her look like a bad ass.
Take for example the black leather boots that Cameron was wearing in TSCC season 2 (photos below taken from episodes 2.08 'Mr Ferguson is Ill Today', 2.15 'Desert Cantos' and 2.21 'Adam Raised a Cain'); she uses her own sensuality in order to mess with John's attraction for her and kicks major butt wearing distressed leather 'Kate Motorcycle Boots' by high-end Italian brand Golden Goose.

Description: Distressed leather taper toe boots with studded shaft, topline and buckle strap at ankle. Leather sole. Available in black.

Check out four deleted scenes from 'Firefly: Browncoats Unite', Science Channel's 10th anniversary celebration of Joss Whedon's cult series Firefly that was broadcast on November 11, 2012.

Fans had a chance to unlock deleted scenes and cutting room floor footage from the special with the network’s “Flock to Unlock” campaign. Basically, a new video would unlock for every 5,000 tweets that enter the Twitter 'verse.

Summer Glau, Morena Baccarin, Jewel Staite and Sean Maher participated to a Firefly panel at Dragon Con 2010, with special guest stars (via prank phone calls) Nathan Fillion and Alan Tudyk. The cast was having an excellent time – they’re clearly friends in real life – as they reminisce about the show and answer fans’ questions.

Although Summer Glau played in Joss Whedon's tv show Dollhouse, she didn't play a "doll" but a scientist with a trouble past. That said, Summer Glau has a thin frame, a radiant, porcelain complexion, big eyes and delicate doll-like features, it is therefore no surprise that some people refers to her as a doll.
We scoured the Summer Glau Wiki gallery for some of the better shots of Summer, and compiled what we feel is the best doll-like photos we could find, where Summer's face, body or pose bring to mind the classic girls' doll. Not surprisingly, some of these photos are taken from photo shootings inwhich the heavy makeup or photoshop use adds to this impression of human doll.
Check out these 10 doll-like photos of Summer Glau, in no particular order. Which ones do you like best? And of course feel free to submit photos that you feel deserve to be listed here.
The photos above are taken from the following albums in the Gallery (left-to-right, top-to-bottom): Doll Photo shoot by Tyler Shields, Comic Book & SciFi Convention LA, The women of 'Serenity' Photo Shoot, TSCC Promotional Photos - Season 1, Fox 'So Fresh' 2008, 'Serenity' Cast Photo Shoot, TSCC Promotional Photos - Season 2, Rüdy Waks photo shoot, Marcel Hartmann for Serenity premiere at the 31th American Deauville Film Festival, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles premiere in Los Angeles.
We have the feeling Summer Glau's role as a Terminator in The Sarah Connor Chronicles may have reinforced that impression since a Terminator is supposed to be an emotioneless killer; but of course fans like you and me know better and Summer's Cameron was thrilling and compelling to watch throughout.
