Nathan Fillion and Summer Glau were all smile as they met fans and signed autographs at the Serenity Amsterdam premiere that was held on September 6, 2005 at the Pathe de Munt theater in Amsterdam. It was a prescreening, as part of the worldwide publicity campaign.
Nathan appeared looking tall and bookishly attractive in glasses, while Summer was disarmingly cute wearing a black skirt and transparent blouse, far from the bedraggled, spooky teen in the film.
We have acquired 44 HQ photos of Summer Glau and Nathan Fillion at the event. Here's a sample and head over to the gallery to see the rest of the pictures.

If you look closely, you can even spot Summer's mother in one of the picture above. Can you guess which one?
chrisdvanne speaking: I really enjoyed Cory's coverage of Edmonton Expo on Twitter and I thought it would be a good idea to have his impressions in a blog post. When we started discussing the opportunity to do it, Cory told me this was not really something he has done done before and that it might be small. Well...
This past weekend, September 26-28 2014, I attended the Edmonton Comic & Entertainment Expo. This was the third year for the Expo and it has grown each year. The attendance grew from last year's 25,000 people over the weekend to 47,000 according to Edmonton Expo's tweet on September 28. I have attended all three years and it's great to see it picking up such momentum. I have also attended Calgary's Expo since 2011 and I can say it's a great set of conventions to go to as the Staff and Volunteers always do a fantastic job with them.
The Expo in Calgary and Edmonton always draws a wide variety of guests to suit many different tastes, and this year was no exception. There was represenation from the origial A-Team with Dirk Bennedict and Dwight Schultz, Superman Dean Cain, rock legend Alice Cooper, cosplayer Jessica Nigri, sci-fi stars from Falling Skies - Noah Wyle (who made his first con appearance) and character actor Doug Jones. Also present was Mads Mikkelsen, star of Hannibal, and one of the personal favourites of the Expo's own miss Emily Expo. We even got a one-day appearance from two of the stars of the popular comedy series The Big Bang Theory, Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar (Howard and Raj).
Many conventions are also blessed to get representation from actors who have appeared within the Whedonverse; the Expo this year garnered a whopping three of them. The first two starred in Joss Whedon's Angel, Amy Acker and J. August Richards, also known as Fred & Gunn; and, also on Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, to name a couple. Of course the third appearance was by a Whedonverse veteran - Summer Glau.
I was fortunate to be able to meet Summer at the 2011 Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo (see picture to the right), and when she was announced as a guest on September 17 (two days after my birthday, talk about a great belated present), I'm pretty sure my heart skipped a few beats and I held my breath while I re-read the Expo's twitter announcement a couple of times. At that time I was anxiously waiting for the Expo to arrive, but with the announcement of Summer it couldn't come fast enough.
The first day of the expo was Friday the 26th. It was considered more of a preview day so there is a little less going on, it was also added this year as last year only had Saturday and Sunday. It gives people a chance to wander about, check out the multitudes of vendors and artists all showcasing their products and art. It's also a great time to grab autographs and photo-ops from the guests that are there that day, as there are less people in line. This first day also gives the convention staff an opportunity to find things they can improve on, often by getting feedback from the convention-goers, for the next day.

Thanks to Fireflyfanboy.com for the heads-up!
During the Whedonverse Q&A panel at the 2014 Edmonton Expo with Summer Glau, Amy Acker and J. August Richard, a member of the audience asked Summer to tell a little bit about her experience on Crackle's new legal thriller Sequestered. For the record, Canadians have not seen the first six episodes of Sequestered, all 12 episodes are coming to Canada on October 14, 2014.
On stage, Summer says that science fiction has offered her great characters, but this role in Sequestered was a wonderful challenge for her. In the first episode, her character Anna, one of the 12 jury members put in isolation for the duration of the trial, has strong convictions about the case itself, but all this is about to be turned upside down when her sister has been threatened. And the wide eyed, innocent girl is forced to really grow up, and she sees a part of herself she didn't know even existed.
Watch the video to hear Summer Glau talk about her challenging experience in Sequestered and encourage attendees to watch the series:
If you haven't seen the first six episodes of Sequestered yet, you can watch them for free at Crackle's website. Each episode is only 23 minutes, there is still plenty of time to binge watch the first part of the series. The second half of Season 1 will be available on October 14.
Stay tuned as we have some surprises in store for you but for the moment we can't tell you about them!
