Most responses are taken from two interviews: one Summer Glau gave to Browncoats magazine Still Flying on February 2005 and another one she gave to her (now defunct) official website on December 2005.
Summer’s favorites are:
Favourite book: Wuthering Heights, by Emily Brontë.
Favourite author: C.S. Lewis [who wrote The Chronicles of Narnia] - my Mama read all of his books to me and my sisters when we were little. 
Favourite music: My favourite music is Tango. I have so many Tango CDs and I love salsa and flamenco. I just love Latin music and that’s what I listen to when I’m at home. I listen to so much Frank Sinatra, Billie Holiday and Nat King Cole. I really like Keane, The Killers, White Strips, James Blunt, Damien Rice and Fiona Apple. My little sister helps me a lot. She’s always putting new things on my iPod. I’m kind of old fashioned and she helps educate me about great new things.
Favourite film: Camelot, it was my Grandma’s favorite and I know all the words.
Favorite TV show as a kid: Little House on the Prairie and Boy Meets World.
Favourite TV Shows: Will & Grace and The West Wing.
Favourite Sience Fiction TV Shows: Star Trek: The Next Generation.
Favorite Film as a kidLittle Mermaid and The Last Unicorn.
Favourite director: Joss Whedon.
Favorite ballet: The Nutcracker [scored by Tchaikovsky]. In America it is such a Christmas tradition. You don’t have to love ballet to see it. It’s the one time a year where an entire family will dress up and see a ballet.
Favourite food: apple pie and peach cobbler with vanilla ice cream.
Favourite cake: spice cake with cream cheese icing.
Favourite dish: Ribs
Favourite snacks: Chips and salsa.

Left or right handed? Right handed but as a dancer I’m a lefty. 
If you were an animal, what animal would you be and why? Pony because my mother had a horse when I was little. She read every horse book to us and showed us every horse movie ever made.
Favorite curse word? Shucks – really.
