Summer Glau is on top of the actresses who build successful careers in television genre, listed by The Detroit News. Elizabeth Mitchell and Moon Bloodgood are the two other new golden girls of sci-fi.
No actress drives fanboys wild like Summer Glau.
Best known for her butt-kicking turn as a time-traveling robot on Fox’s defunct drama “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles,” Glau has been in an impressive number of sci-fi shows over the years. This includes “Dollhouse,” “The 4400” and “Firefly.”
Now Glau, 29, has added NBC’s Monday night comic-book drama “The Cape” to that list.
The show follows Vince Faraday (Aussie actor David Lyons), a former cop who transforms himself into a superhero and befriends a rowdy group of carnival types to exact his revenge and clear his name. Glau plays Orwell, a tech-savvy beauty and Faraday’s noncarnival ally. Orwell is the one who arms Faraday with earpieces and other gadgets on his missions, acting as his eyes and ears.
Glau says she loves that the role further expands her love affair with fanboys.
“Over the years, I’ve felt really supported, and I don’t want that love to go away,” Glau told reporters recently. “I’m growing as an actress, and I love the family that I’m a part of now. This role, in particular, is forcing me to grow a little bit more, and that’s where I want to be.”
Glau isn’t the only small-screen queen of sci-fi. With the likes of Elizabeth Mitchell and Moon Bloodgood by her side, these ladies have fast become the faces of the future.

What Is the UNICEF Tap Project?
In 2007, the UNICEF Tap Project was born in New York City based on a simple concept: restaurants would ask their patrons to donate $1 or more for the tap water they usually enjoy for free, and all funds raised would support UNICEF's efforts to bring clean and accessible water to millions of children around the world.Through numerous fundraising and volunteer activities, the UNICEF Tap Project celebrates the clean water we enjoy on a daily basis by encouraging celebrity, restaurant, volunteer, corporate, and government supporters to give this vital resource to children in developing countries. The concept is basic and compelling: "When You Take Water, Give Water." 2011 UNICEF Tap Project Funds will specifically target Togo, the Central African Republic and Vietnam.
