Summer Glau is on for this november Supanova Pop Culture Expo in Brisbane and Adelaide, joining her onscreen fellow Larper from Knights of Badassdom, Peter Dinklage.
Unfortunately, there's no plan for a dual photo op with Summer and Peter but I'm sure many fans would love to get a picture with the two of them.
Since 2011, Peter Dinklage has starred as Tyrion Lannister in the HBO series Game of Thrones, which earned him the Emmy and the Golden Globe Award for Supporting Actor. Furthermore, Games of Thrones writer George R.R. Martin is also coming to Supanova in Brisbane and Adelaide this November.
We have learned a in July 2013 that the long-shelved Knights of Badassdom will finally be distributed in the USA. There's no specific release date yet, but Joe Lynch's horror comedy will hit theaters and VOD at the same time.
For your viewing pleasure, here's the cast and crew of Knights of Badassdom at Comic-Con San Diego 2011:

Here's your chance to win an unique and monumental poster of Summer Glau, printed directly on an 2 mm thick Aluminium plate, thanks to our member and dedicated Summer Glau fan, Fox012.
Dimensions of the prints are 150 centimeters in height and 80 centimeters wide.
To enter the giveaway and get a chance to hang this print on your wall, all you have to do is write a comment under this blog post. There's one limitation though; Fox012 is located in Germany and sending this large print overseas would be expensive; but Fox012 will ship it within Germany on his behalf (read free). It can be send overseas as well but not for free the recipient has to pay the shipment costs.
The winner will be randomly chosen among the participants to the giveaway.
So good luck everyone and a huge thank you to Fox012 for his generous offer!
When Fox012 messaged us that he was ready to give away this Aluminium print, I must say I was tempted to keep it for myself but it would not have been fair and also it will serve the cause - spreading the word on Summer's talent...and beauty in this case - better if we offer fans the chance to bring home this awesome piece of art. I can hear from here Derek yell "Metal!" :-)
Summer's beautiful shot is taken from a photoshoot by Brian Bowen Smith for Esquire magazine.
Besides his many contributions to the sites, such as UHQ pictures of Summer Glau for example, Fox012 is not new to this kind of giveaway and lucky visitors of the Summer Glau Wiki have already brought home Acrilyc prints.
Edit: 3 small Acrylic prints (plexiglass) featuring Summer as Cameron are also available and will be given away on a first arrived, first served basis. They can be send overseas. Simply mention here you'd like one, then you'll sort out the details in private with Fox012

This is an action figure of Cameron from the episode "Born to Run" prison break scene. All of the clothes were hand-made, except for the jeans and gloved hands.
Ricardo also got the opportunity to met Summer Glau at 2013 Chicago Comic Con. He told us that she is a wonderful person and she autographed the base of the action figure, she was very impressed by it.
Dark Horse Comics released two images revealing that they’ll make soon announcements regarding the continuation of Joss Whedon’s Firefly/Serenity franchise, which jumped from television to film to comics a few years back.
Here's Dark Horse teaser announce:
"Joss Whedon's beloved Firefly series and Serenity film's lifespan may have been short-lived, but managed to produce one of the most dedicated fanbases in the history of modern science fiction. Dark Horse is proud to be able to keep Mal and his crew flying with new comics and products.
Look for the hashtag #WheresSerenity over the next few months on our Twitter, Facebook and Instagram pages for exclusive news on the future of the franchise at Dark Horse!"
The first teaser image is an obvious reference to the Wash character, played by Alan Tudyk:
The second teaser consists of 3 images gathered here in a gif (click on image to watch gif):
Well, who's is excited to see a continuation (under what form?) of Firefly/Serenity?
Summer Glau was a guest at the Last Call With Carson Daly show on February 21, 2008 to promote Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. Summer looked lovely in a Graham & Spencer black silk mini dress. She talks an image of her naked and dismembered being on billboards all over Los Angeles, her character Cameron in TSCC and more.
Summer had a lot of fun on the show apparently. Strangely her shyness had gone during this talk show, she could speak wonderfully. She was far better than I would have expected to be in a talk show interview based on all the other interviews I have seen. Summer just goes to an interview, she never does fancy tricks, she never wants to look bigger than she really is, its just her what we see. Of course the showgivers and interviewers try to speak about the "cooler" things instead like robot sex, because they need to make the interviews interesting to their entire audience not just the parts of their audience that actually care about the interviewee.
I managed to find a high resolution version of the video of the show that you can watch below, as well as a sample of the screencaps have been added to the Gallery.
Our good friend and Summer Glau enthusiast Leah Steger told us a little about meeting Summer Glau at Chicago Comic Con on August 10-11, 2013.
Leah attended the convention with her daughters Emma and Jewel and with her sister. Regular visitors at the Summer Glau Wiki and our band of merry Summer Glau fans on Twitter or on Facebook knew for a long time that Leah was very excited about finally meeting her favorite actress at Wizard World Chicago event. Leah had never met a celebrity before in her life, especially not in front of hundreds of equally excited fans, not to mention that Leah and her sister had two agitated little girls to look after. In this case, it’s quite natural that she would feel intimidated when approaching Summer’s booth, and I’m sure many other fans have experienced the same thing. As Leah told me: “I was so damn shy, I couldn’t say what I wanted to.”
Find below the non-reworked transcript of a conversation between Leah and me as she asked how she could share her photos with the fans. Here are some of the memories collected on that day, as Leah was standing in line to meet with a lovely and talented actress named Summer Glau.
"Well Summer Glau was excited too meet my daughters Emma and Jewel; it was funny, I was in line and I just happened to be where Summer was standing at the table, and I was holding Emma, she Summer looked over and smiled at us, It was awesome. lol.
Jewel [Leah’s oldest daughter] had this whole conversation with Summer I couldn't hear everything but she was telling Summer about her sister Emma, me her mommy her auntie bia who is my sister that was with me, and her cousin Allie and Jewel even said Summer Glau because Lydia my sister told Summer she could. I wish I could have heard the whole conversation with Jewel and Summer but I had a stroller in front of me and Emma was playing with my face talking to me. lol
Jewel definitely recognized Summer and she was at complete ease with her, Jewel doesn't usually do that with anyone. I remember Jewel told Summer she was scared of all the men, and my sister told Summer it was the people in the costumes, Summer said they scare her too [probably to reassure her].
And when Jewel told Summer Emma was her little sister, Summer told Jewel she is an older sister too, Jewel had more of a conversation than I did with Summer I was very nervous and shy. And Jewel gave Summer a hug too.
As for Emma she recognized Summer Glau but she was very shy and Summer tried to see if Emma would let her hold her but Emma was a little worried but we got to meet Summer take photos and it was amazing, Summer was very understanding and nice, she signed a couple other things for some of my friends. She was very sweet I'm so glad I got to meet an amazing very talented person like Summer, keep doing what you do Summer because I'll always support you, thank you for putting up with me being so shy lol, and the Firefly panel was so much fun too, thank you again oh and happy birthday I hope you had a good one.
You know, one can hide all secrets except the one in one's eyes. There's something bigger than movies and success in Summer Glau. Take a look at the other photos with Leah, Summer Glau and her youngest daughter Emma.
As a conclusion this is exactly what I thought Leah’s meeting with Summer Glau at Chicago Comic Con would be, adorable and heartfelt. This is also why her report was left untouched. That way it sounds more authentic.
For me, Leah has a special place in the Summer Glau fandom, because of her refreshing enthusiasm, because she is genuine, she doesn’t play a role and because she isn’t the typical fanboy/fangirl one would expect. In this respect, she reminds me of Karen Wing, who is missed and I would like to take this opportunity to say that we keep Karen in your thoughts and prayers. It’s no coincidence that both Leah and Karen were touched by the romance between John and Cameron in Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.
So thank you for being so awesome Leah and Karen.
