After watching the blog post about FanExpo 2010 Toronto and the many pictures of Summer Glau taken at the convention, some wondered what the little doll she is holding (see picture below) was supposed to be.
Here's the story behind that intriguing picture :
The puppet portrays Paul David Hewson, most commonly known by his stage name Bono, an Irish singer, musician, and humanitarian best known for being the main vocalist of the Dublin-based rock band U2.
Bono Puppet was created by etsy designer mullishmuse. It likes to schmoozes with celebrities and take photos with them, Summer Glau being one of his victims. The original caption of the Summer Glau photo is : "Yes, I am with Summer Glau. Jealous?".

Summer Glau attented Fan Expo Canada held in Toronto, Canada on August 27-29, 2010; she was there on Saturday and Sunday for a panel, autograph and photo sessions.
The guest list also included Felicia Day, James Marsters, Adam West, William Shatner and Stan Lee to name a few.
Here's what website Bleeding Cool reported :
Biggest draws by far were Adam West, William Shatner and Stan Lee but the really really big (surprise to me) draw was Summer Glau. She seemed to be the big celeb everyone really wanted to meet.
Why is it not a surprise for us fans?
As usual, fans mentioned that Summer was extremely nice and appreciative of all the fans, taking the time to personalize each and every autograph.
Here are a few images from her autograph session:
Watch below videos from her Q&A panel:
Many Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles fans were thrilled when they saw the photo of Summer posing with cosplayer Kurt A. Weinreich dressed in a Terminator costume at StarFest Convention 2010 in Denver. Kurt kindly shared the story behind that awesome photo.
A huge thank you to Kurt for the photos and the story!!

FedCon is probably the biggest science-fiction convention in Europe; at FedCon XVIII, held in Bonn, Germany on May 1-3 2009 , the guests of honour were Summer Glau (TSCC) and the Battlestar Galactica guests (Edward James Olmos, James Callis, Michael Hogan and Richard Hatch).
Unfortunately, Summer didn't show up on Friday for the opening ceremony because she had a cold and was resting in order to feel better for Saturday.
Here's a sample of the photos taken by French website "Salles Obscures" at her panel :

Here are a few Star Wars-style pictures showing celebrities holding light sabers, including the Firefly cast. They come from a website called "Jedi Chefs".
There's no way to properly describe the website Jedi Chefs; the guys behind that site describe themselves as following :
Basically, they hang out in hotel lobbies and conventions, where they have managed to collect an impressive array of celebrities from various tv shows (mostly sci-fi), wearing chef hats and wielding lightsabers.
Summer Glau is so into it. It's adorkable. (Summer's images were taken at Starfury Serenity, London in 2005, Starfury the White Room London in 2004 and at Serenity squared London in 2005).

Summer's sequence starts at 8:05; there's even another glimpse of Summer's booth crowded with fans at the end of the video. Thank you Millman for that great video!
