Here's an interview from the land down under with Summer Glau, published in the Sydney Morning Herald on October 25, 2006, shortly before Summer's appearance at the Supanova Pop Culture Expo in Sydney on October 27-29 2006.
In this short interview, that had gone on under the radar of Summer Glau fansites until today, journalist Charles Purcell gets geeky with sci-fi icon Summer Glau.
Charles Purcell gets geeky with cult actress Summer Glau, who starred as the lethal River in Joss Whedon's cult hit sci-fi movie Serenity. She will be appearing at pop-culture expo Supanova along with Kevin Weisman (Alias), Mira Furlan (Lost) and Clare Kramer (Buffy the Vampire Slayer).
What are you going to do at Supanova?
I'm going to meet the fans and sign autographs. I [will] also talk about Serenity and what it was like training for the movie and being in the movie.
What was Buffy creator and Serenity director Joss Whedon like to work with?
One of the funniest people alive. He's brilliant.
You did a lot of martial arts in Serenity as the heroine River. Are you really tough?
No, it's all movie magic. I did hurt some of the stunt guys [though]. I had to actually make contact. They always got blamed. If I hurt them, it was always their fault, they should have got out of the way.
Do you ever think to yourself during these conventions, "Oh my God, get these geeks away from me"?
No, I sometimes turn into a geek myself. I was a Star Trek: The Next Generation fan. When I met Counsellor Troi (Marina Sirtis) I almost cried.
Do you collect any sci-fi stuff?
I don't collect anything, but I love watching so many sci-fi movies. I loved The NeverEnding Story.
Did you feel cheated when it actually ended?
[Laughs] No, but I was really sad when Atreyu's horse gets drowned in quicksand.
Do you speak Klingon? Or Vulcan?
No, I need to have lessons.
Do you think not speaking Klingon or Vulcan would reduce your marriageability in certain galaxies?
Does anyone ever ask you to marry them?
People ask me to marry them once every convention or they give me their phone numbers. I just get really embarrassed and don't know what to say.
Will you marry me?
I don't know you very well at all.

Here's the non-official movie poster for Joe Lynch's 'Knights of Badassdom'.
The adventure/horror comedy assembles a merry band of LARP-ers, including Steve Zahn, Summer Glau, Danny Pudi, Peter Dinklage and Ryan Kwanten, who accidentally unleash a bloodthirsty succubus (Margarita Levieva) hellbent on cannibalizing everyone in her path. Since an "official" trailer has been released recently, i thought 'Knights of Badassdom' needed a movie poster as well.
It is no surprise if my fan art focus on Summer Glau, who plays Gwen on the movie. Hope you like it!
You can find more fanart in the Gallery.
Don't forget to mention in the comment section if it deserves to be the official movie poster for 'Knights of Badassdom' in your opinion.
UPDATE: my little fan art has now de facto become the official poster for Knights of Badassdom; take a look at IMDb page.
Back in August 2008, Summer Glau did an interview with SFX UK website, in anticipation of the second season of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. It seems this interview passed under the radar of many TSCC fans but TheRosieMac recently unearthed it for our reading pleasure.
Summer Glau discusses the challenge of playing a Terminator in the series, her approach of the role, the human aspect of Cameron, her relationship with John and more. While the interview does not include sensational revelations, it makes for some interesting reading and proves once again how thoughtful Summer is about her roles.
Here are a few excerpts:
You bring that human aspect to the role convincingly. Did your background playing more emotional characters help?
"Summer Glau: I wanted to bring that out but in a very subtle way because I wanted people to accept it and believe it. I didn’t want people to say ‘Well she’s completely letting herself out the hook by behaving human when she’s supposed to be a robot.’ So I wanted there to be moments when she appears so cold and disconnected but then moments you see behind her eyes a little spark of something, something human and I really want people to wish that she was human."
In early episodes, we see a hint that something – possibly romantic – could develop between Cameron and John. Does this develop?
"Summer Glau: I hope so. I don’t know. At this point, we’re moulding and moulding. The story is so complicated and I know people think ‘Well, how are you gonna keep this up?’ There are endless possibilities from our writers, they’re bringing in really rich sub-plots and guest stars. It’s all evolving but I think Cameron feels as close to love for John as a robot could."
What about long term goals?
"I’d love to do a movie about dance. With the (writer’s) strike, it’s put everyone’s schedules out, so I don’t when that will happen. I’d love to work with Baz Lurhman too. I love his films."

Summer Glau attented the Los Angeles premiere of the horror movie 'Laid To Rest' at Laemmle's Grande 4 Plex, Los Angeles on April 18th, 2009. Summer went for a simple and casual yet elegant look and looked stunning.
'Laid to rest' seemed like a Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles reunion, not just because it starred Thomas Dekker and Lena Headey but also because it was directed by award-winning special makeup effects wizard Robert Hall, who worked on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, and TSCC (see promo still below). Her wife Bobbi Sue Luther, also an actress on 'Laid to Rest, played on TSCC 2.15 'Goodbye to All That' (see screencap below).
And now a sample of the MQ and HQ photos of the arrivals at the Los Angeles premiere of Laid To Rest:
