Watch an interview with Summer Glau on set of The Big Bang Theory by Laura Saltman for Dish of Salt.
Serenity premiered in France at the 31st Deauville Festival of American Film on September 3, 2005, in Deauville, France.
The Deauville Festival of American Film is a European showcase for mainly American movies; this is a very popular film festival in France (second only to Cannes!). It is a launching pad for both independent and studio movies in Europe.
Nathan Fillion and Summer Glau travelled to France representing Firefly's movie sequel. They took turn in sharing their pleasure to come and anecdotes on the movie in an interview with cinema website ecranlarge.com...at least for Nathan Fillion. Indeed, a defective dictaphone did not allow to reproduce the whole Summer Glau's interview, only a short text mixing evanescent memories and barely audible rushes, the following one (translated from French to English):
"Summer Glau's entire life was devoted to dance until she broke her toe. She keeps from these years of hard work as a prima ballerina many regrets, an intact but unsatisfied passion, and also booked behavior, if not antisocial [!!??]. To say that it was used to interpret the mysterious River, it just takes few steps that she will not cross. However, she recognizes that many girls lonely and uncomfortable in their skin will recognize themselves in River, and why not learn from her evolution throughout the film. Otherwise, she retains from her character the fear when reading the script. Indeed, second part in the series Firefly, she is thrown into the limelight with the film. River's role was physical, and Summer had to follow a daily workout with a coach, and she often met with Joss Whedon to fully understand all facets of River.
On a more personal side, she is very attached to his native Texas (without wearing any judgment on President Bush), and even more to her family. She spends her free time reading cookbooks and trying to cook, although she admits it is not won. Professionally, she has just finished filming another science fiction movie in Hungary [Mammoth (2006)], and continues to make appearances in TV series."
But at least we can enjoy lovely self taken shots of Nathan Fillion and Summer Glau during these interviews:
