Impressions from Summer's First Day at Ottawa Comiccon

Today is Summer Glau's first day at Ottawa Comiccon 2014 (and the 2nd day of the convention). The wait is over (minus Summer's long lines) for all the fans eager to have their photo taken with her or to get an autograph. The first impressions and images of Summer with her fans are starting to pop up online.
Summer Glau's panel is today at 10:30 a.m. and it seems she's happy to meet her fans at the convention and that she's having an amazing time in Canada. There is also a duo photo op called "Ladies of Whedon" with Summer Glau and Charisma Carpenter later in the day at the Photo Ops booth.
Find below a few pictures of Summer at the convention and follow the link to the Gallery for more. Come back regularly as this News will be updated with the latest photos as they surface online.

On Firefly she spoke about getting the part. She was new to LA, working as a tango dancer, and had no acting experience.
“My resume was pretty much made up. Joss was the first person to take a chance on me. ” [...]
When asked if she felt the show concluded to her satisfaction she said:
I think we needed about 9 or 10 more seasons, so no” [...]
Summer is shy with a charming vulnerability and it’s not so hard to believe that she had to conquer a fear of public speaking. Her performance anxiety continues though, and in Terminator she was embarrassed about running scenes.
“I’m a very awkward runner. I tried to convince directors that Cameron doesn’t run. She walks ominously.”[...]
She loves the part of River that gets to pound on Reavers and being a cyborg.
“When you’re a terminator you get to smash things. There’s a lot of satisfaction in that. ” [...]
Summer’s feelings for the early demise of the show [TSCC].
“It was the longest running series I was on so it was very hard to let go. ”[...]
She makes no effort to hide that dancing is at her core and she both enjoys and feels the pressure that so many of her characters danced on screen.
“It’s a piece of my heart. It’s a piece of the fabric of who I am. ”
When you’re not incorporeally possessing a spaceship, what kind of cooking and food do you like?
“My favorite meal is any kind of pasta,” said Summer. “If I’m ever in prison that would be my last meal.” 
Don't forget that Tomorrow is Summer's last day at the convention. We hope everyone has a great time in Ottawa and of course we'd love to hear from lucky con-goers so feel free to send us images or share your impressions.
More informations photos with Summer and reports from con-goers will be posted in the dedicated forum thread (check it regularly).

great news! I laughed about the "akward runner" because I remember a Scene in season two. Derek gets kidnapped and she runs after them. Her way of running looked actually really powerful

A huge thank you to all the fans and sites for posting photos of/with Summer and impressions from her panel. This is very appreciated by all the fans who could not make it to Ottawa.
