A celebration of Summer Glau by Den of Geek

Summer Glau celebration

Den of Geek has released an article entirely dedicated to Summer Glau's fame, illlustrated with many pictures and video.

It seems Caroline Preece, the author of the article, reads the discussion forum of the Summer Glau Wiki regularly because she and our members share a lot of views about Summer acting abilites and the way she inhabits the character she's playing.

Find here excerpts from that inspired article :

"The star of Serenity, Firefly and numerous other genre films and shows, Summer Glau seldom gets the attention she deserves. Here’s Caroline’s celebration of her work...

Sure, she can act most of her co-stars off the screen when required, but she does so with a grace and understatement that’s incredibly difficult to find; you only have to watch any given female-centric network show to realise that...

It’s entirely possible that, if one could bottle the ‘Glau effect’ and sell it on, show-runners and Hollywood’s most elite would be lining up around the block. One part sex kitten, two parts lost little girl, Glau straddles the line perfectly, and has displayed a versatility that most actresses would kill for...

Apart from the grace and fluidity of movement that comes with her background, it’s Glau’s infectious Texan charm that may one day turn the heads of a more mainstream audience...

In terms of Hollywood actresses, it’s easy to compare her to the likes of Zoe Saldana or Mia Wasikowska, who too possess that indescribable charisma that comes from the slightly exotic features and slender builds with which they’ve been blessed. The truth is, there isn’t really anyone like her in mainstream cinema, and there may never be...

Portraying a terminator sent back from 2027 by a future John Connor, the role gave Glau the chance to add yet another string to her bow. In Firefly, she had been required to exude emotion and tragedy to exhausting degrees, but here she had the new challenge of eradicating all human characteristics from early episode performances, and she was simply wonderful. The actress received most of the critical praise afforded the show, and her performance is one of the more memorable aspects of its short run...

Hollywood may never come knocking, but, for those fans with a tendency to fall in love with the culture they absorb, Summer Glau is one of them: a girl who embraces genre entertainment with arms wide open, and a stunning addition in whatever she takes part."
