Casting Shot

We have acquired a casting shot featuring Summer Glau at the very beginning of her career. The incredibly long hair, being very slim and the loose jeans might make her look more like a kid than she was.
This type of 8x10" photo is usually sent out by the actor’s talent agent to get them a job on a TV show or movie. Summer Glau's resume was stapled to the back of it (the staple marks have been digitally removed). A resume consists of Film & TV credits, Theatre, Special Skills, Training. Depending on the experience of the actor, some resumes will be more thorough than others. The only contact info is management and agencies. No personal contact info! (See a previous News: Agency headshot photo).

Given that Summer Glau was still in the early stages of her career, the resume includes a "Special Skills" section at the bottom of the page - Roller Skating -. lol -. Similarly, her resume mentions "Commercial", which we were able to get an example recently (See a previous News: Nike Tango Spec Commercial).

Agency Photos

Side note : this agency photo and the accompagnying resume have been bought on ebay from a seller specialised in agency photos of actors.

Great. So young looking but probably not that young. Perfect hair. Great pose.

Summer for Esquire: "No amount of whiskey in the world is gonna get me to sing in public." So I don't think we'll hear her sing, lol

As mentioned in her resume, Summer Glau "Special Skills" include Singing and Roller-skating; here's a video that confirms that:

I know she's supposed to be 20ish in this photo, but she looks as old as a high school student. When she was in TSCC, I thought she was 17 or 18*. And �boy, was I surprised when I found out that she was 26 at the time.� shok

*:This is the first performance by Summer that led me to know about her. I was a senior in high school at the time.
