Summer Glau








Joss Whedon took up the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and then he challenged Summer Glau, Lin-Manuel Miranda and the entire British Royal Family, except Prince George because "Don't do that to a little baby, thats mean".
 
Watch Joss Whedon's awesome video below and learn more about the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and how it started.
 

 
And now I really want to see Summer do this!
 
Unless you’ve living under a rock you must have heard about the Ice Bucket Challenge to promote ALS. The likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Justin Bieber, Oprah Winfrey, Dick Costolo, Justin Timberlake, Jimmy Fallon, Chris Christie, Triple H and Martha Stewart have all participated in the challenge and asked fellow celebs to do the same. The ALS Foundation reports that it has raised $15.6 million since the challenge started.
 
So why are they doing it? 
 
Well the challenge involves pouring a bucket a bucket of cold ice water over their heads to raise awareness and fight ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) or Lou Gehrig’s disease. The challenge is simple, pour ice-cold water over your head and then challenge someone else to do it. The person challenged has to do so within 24 hours or donate $100 to fight ALS. Even if a person completes the challenge, they’re welcome to donate the money.
 
What is ALS?
 
‘ALS is a disease of the nervous system that affects the motor neurons in the brain and the spinal cord,’ says Dr Sudhir Kumar, senior consultant neurologist, Institute of Neurosciences, Hyderabad. These motor neurons carry signals from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body. ‘The disease is progressive in nature, which means once it starts it affects all body parts and ultimately causes complete loss of muscle movement and co-ordination. There is absolutely no hope of improvement in ALS and in the later stages the patient loses the ability to grab things, speak or even move any body part,’ he explains.
 
How did the challenge start?
 
The ALS Association credits Pete Frates, a former Boston College baseball player for making the challenge popular. He’s been living with the disease since 2012, and it has become a phenomenon since Frates took the challenge at the end of last month. .

These are the moments that make me truly appreciate cosplay; when a cosplayer meet Summer Glau at a convention and they decide to strike a wacky pose, magic happens. The following photo, taken at this year's London Film and Comic Con, is probably one of the most amazing photo op with Summer ever.
 
Summer Glau Meets Mojo Jojo Cosplay: The Story Behind this Amazing Photo
 
Find below the story behind this amazing photo op with Summer Glau, including the exclusive photos and comments from Trevor Price, the imaginative fan hiding behind this custom made costume.
 
If you don't recognize the character Trevor is cosplaying, then you probably aren't familiar with Cartoon Network's animated series Powerpuff Girls, and with the archenemy of the girls and main antagonist of the series, Mojo Jojo.
 
Trevor has detailed in a blog post how he created his version of Mojo Jojo, including idea generation, sketching, researching materials and fabrication. Find below a few pictures from the costume's creation process, that Trevor kindly allowed us to use (last two pictures by Food and Cosplay).

Trevor was kind enough to send us a few words on his meeting with Summer at LFCC and the inspiration behind his photo op with her.
 
I knew Summer from a number of shows including Terminator the Sarah Connor chronicles, Arrow, Alphas, The Cape and Dollhouse.
Originally I planned to have her choking me in her character Terminator however I changed my plans when it became apparent I would have to do it in Mojo Jojo after her flight got cancelled. On the day of the photo shoot, she was wearing a flowy dress which didn't scream Terminator, so I improvised and decided to do a proposal: I got down on one knee with Buttercups head serving as a ring. She was shocked. I also learnt taking a knee in that cosplay was difficult.
I didn't really have time to present my idea to her as the shoot is like a 10 second thing. Knowing this and that I couldn't be understood easily in the mask I just got into position as fast as possible.

Bonus: Trevor's photo op with Lena Headey.

Originally I was just going to have a simple pose with Lena, my Joffrey POP vinyl and well...me. However as I was Mojo Jojo this became a truly amazing shot which I love! It became a Mojo Jojo family portrait of sorts.

A huge thank you to Trevor Price for allowing us to reproduce his comments and photos...and of course for giving fans the opportunity to be amazed at his unique photo ops.

Entertainment Weekly published in its December 23, 2005 issue (with King Kong on the cover) a review of Joss Whedon sci-fi western Serenity, as well as a snippet on Whedon's next move after his film-directed debut.
 
The good news is that follow-up film Serenity is as accessible to newbies as it is to hardcore fans. The bad news is that the film's story line — good guys (Nathan Fillion, back as Capt. Malcolm Reynolds; his crew) protect a woman (Summer Glau's ass-kicking psychic River) whom bad guys will do everything in their power to capture lest she reveal a secret diabolical plan that would unmask them as superbad guys — seems taken straight out of a bottom-shelf Schwarzenegger flick (Eraser, for those of you scoring at home). 
 
Find below HQ scans of the December 23, 2005 issue of Entertainment Weekly magazine.

Scans of the July 14, 2008 issue of TV Guide magazine.
 
TV Guide published in July 2008 an interview with Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles star Brian Austin Green in their annual Summer Sci-Fi edition (with Mulder and Scully on the cover).
 
Derek is very simple, very programmed. He's much much like [Terminator] Cameron (Summer Glau), trying to learn how to be human. 
 
Summer Glau is also featured in an article titled "Ten interstellar bodies of sci-fi who rock our world" for her role as Cameron in TSCC.
 
Summer Glau, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.
More than a pretty face, the former dancer wins extra points for bringing balletic grace to her butt-kicking Cameron. Forget Ahnuld - We'd rather spend Judgement Day with this Smokin' Terminator.

HQ scans of Starlog Magazine #341, on stands on December 2005.

To celebrate the release of Serenity on the big screen on 2005, the science-fiction magazine published two articles, a four-page article on Jewel Staite called 'Staite of Serenity' and another four-page article on Sean Maher called 'Frontier Doctor'. The focus of the articles is on Jewel Staite and Sean Maher but  I thought fans of Firefly/Serenity might be interested.
