Interviews with the TSCC cast at Comic Con 2007

POSTED BY chrisdvanne ON Apr 15, 2013 / 1 COMMENTS

Selected bloggers were able to sit with the cast, writers and producers of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles for a series of short interviews, before they went on stage for the screening of the pilot and their panel at Comic Con International San Diego 2007.
Here's the part with Richard T. Jones and Summer Glau, published at website Comics Alliance:

Comic Con International, San Diego - July 28, 2007

Next to the table we had Richard T. Jones (James Ellison) and Summer Glau (Cameron). I think I missed the first question or two due to being in shock ... Summer was sitting next to me.
Do you find it intimidating to play previously existing characters?
Richard: I have it easier than most. While the rest have to carry the show on their shoulders. I get to walk in with an attitude of amazement at everything. I get to have lots of fun, I can't wait.
Summer: There are characteristics that are reminiscent of the original versions, but it is up to us to flesh the characters out. In a movie you have limited time for character development while with a series we can do so much more.
What can you tell us about your characters?
Richard: I am an FBI agent. I'll be honest, when my agent called and said that they were doing a 'Terminator' series I said "Why?" I didn't think it could be done right until I read the script. I like that my character brings a little more levity to the show. I am on the trail of Sarah Connor because I think she is a killer. But with the trail of dead bodies, destroyed cars and general destruction I start to think that she might be telling the truth.
Summer: I play a female Terminator sent back to protect John. I had an idea what a Terminator is, but I had never seen the movies. Once I read the script I was immediately drawn to it and knew this is what I wanted to do next.
How much training did you ave for the series and do you do your own stunts?
Richard: I like stunt doubles. I am more than happy to let them do all the dangerous work.
Summer: With movies you can take weeks to do one scene and make sure that it is perfect. We don't have that luxury. If my stunt double can do something faster and better than me, then I let her. Given the option, I want to and like to do my own stunts. With 'Serenity' I did 95% of my own stunts and I am glad that I did.

I don't recollect seeing this interview before.
Most noticeable thing is Summer's great use of words, which are not given to her in a script. It is all her talking.
(Some people might assume that because she spent all her time dancing, her schooling would fail, but it is not the case.
I remember in another interview, she told us that her mother (schoolteacher?), would read to her at bedtime. I'm pretty sure that meant all 3 sisters, as they're all very clever).
