Firefly promo photos taken at Frank Lloyd Wright designed house
Early Firefly promotional images were taken at the Ennis House, a residential dwelling in Los Angeles, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in the twenties.
The design is based on ancient Mayan temples. Its prominent detail is the relief ornamentation on its textile blocks, inspired by the symmetrical reliefs of Mayan buildings.
Find below the promo shots with the Firefly cast taken at the Ennis house:
The building's exotic design made it an appealing location for Hollywood filmmakers.
Although used as a shooting location as early as 1933 (Female), the house first acquired morbid fame providing the exterior facade for the" House on Haunted Hill", a 1959 B movie starring Vincent Price (see photo below). The 1975 film The Day of the Locust made extensive use of the house as a private residence, but it was in 1982's "Blade Runner" that the house gained a popularity of its own among moviegoers (see photos below). Its exterior also appears as "The Mansion" occupied by Angelus, Spike, and Drusilla in Joss Whedon's television series "Buffy the Vampire Slayer".

Joss Whedon makes Summer blush at Sitges Festival
Director Joss Whedon and actors Summer Glau and Nathan Fillion made the opening of the 38th Sitges Film Festival on October 9th, 2005 with Serenity.
While the three of them were on stage to introduce the screening of Serenity to the audience, Joss Whedon thanked the audience, the director of the festival and the two movie stars and, in Whedon's own worlds, "particularly Summer Glau, in whose presence we are all underdressed".
Check out the video below, which has thus far almost gone unnoticed, as well as pictures of Joss Whedon, Nathan and a lovely Summer Glau wearing a black dress at 2005 Sitges Film festival, thanks to raul2010.

I love when Summer Glau and the characters she played on screen inspire others to create, especially when the result is that amazing.
Summer Glau played the model's apprentice for sports brand K-Swiss on June 11, 2010. She stopped by at K-Swiss's showroom in Venice, California and it looks she had a lot of fun putting on various pants, shirts and shoes.
Here are the images of Summer's debuts as a model, courtesy of K-Swiss
Look who was rocking K-Swiss gear over the years at the loft? The Cape's James Frain and David Lyons, Spartacus and Arrow's Katrina Law and The Vampire Diaries's Candice Accola.
Arrow: 2.08 The Scientist – HQ Promotional Photos
The CW has published a the official description and promotional photos for episode 8 “The Scientist” of Arrow, marking the return of Summer Glau as Isabel Rochev and also the first appearance of Barry Allen (The Flash).
Here's the HQ promotional images:
Here's the press release:
BARRY ALLEN COMES TO STARLING CITY — A seemingly impossible robbery at Queen Consolidated’s Applied Sciences Division brings Central City police scientist Barry Allen (guest star Grant Gustin) to town. Citing a similar case back home, Barry offers to help Oliver (Stephen Amell) and team with the investigation. Oliver senses there is more to Barry than meets the eye, but he’s distracted by the similarities between this current case and something that happened on the island. Meanwhile, Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) takes a liking to Barry, which doesn’t go unnoticed by Oliver. Sin (guest star Bex Taylor-Klaus) asks Roy (Colton Haynes) for help when a friend of hers goes missing. Roy is surprised when Thea (Willa Holland) not only encourages him to help, but joins the search. Unfortunately, Sin’s friend is connected to Brother Blood (guest star Kevin Alejandro), and their search ultimately gets one of them seriously injured. Michael Schultz directed the episode with story by Greg Berlanti & Andrew Kresiberg and teleplay by Andrew Kreisberg & Geoff Johns (#208).
'The Scientist' will air on December 4th at 8/7c on The CW.
