US Weekly January 2008 - Magazine Scan

US Weekly published in its issue dated January 14, 2008 a one-page article on the launch of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles on FOX, with a photo of the TSCC cast.

The author of the article, tv expert John Griffiths, wrote among other things:

Tame Summer Glau seems miscast as the ultrasexy cyborg who must blend into society as she helps protect the duo.

Well anticipated Mr Griffiths! Cameron, played by Summer Glau, quickly became the breakout character of TSCC and the misteries around her secret agenda are still in everyday conversations of the fans.

Here's the HQ scan of the article:

Oh, I see you spotted that stupid final paragraph Chris.
I have just emailed the magazine and told them that John Griffiths has got a very low IQ.
Fancy writing that for a magazine.  He is typical of most of the morons that interviewed Summer, especially on GMTV in the UK.  I was familiar with the GMTV interviewers, they are only fit for talking what we call in the UK SOAPS.   Everyday life, dull and boring.  If I wanted to see some people talking in a pub or bar, I'd go there, not watch all that drivel on TV.

When I saw the Reaver massacre scene in Serenity, the word Terminator popped into my mind several times. I have always thought that the motivation for the Cameron character was River Tam. If not the motivation for TSCC altogether. So it seemed ironic to me that Summer almost did not even audition because she herself thought that she was so wrong for the role as she imagined it to be. In real life, Summer is much more like Christine Prancer than Cameron, "just a nice girl." Proof of her extraordinary talent is that she nailed the Cameron role so well that now when we hear "Terminator", we think of her, not Arnold.

Just came across this on

"After watching Summer slash her way through Serenity, writer/producer Josh Friedman wrote the part of Cameron with her in mind."
