Summer Glau's presentation at Sitges website :
Summer Glau (River) made her film debut with the teen comedy Sleepover. Born in San Antonio (Texas) she was a premiere ballerina at the Majestic Theatre in shows like Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme, The Happy Widow, Peer Gynt or Paint Your Wagon, until a leg injury put an end to her career. Living in Los Angeles she studied acting and began to perform in shows like Firefly, Angel and Cold Case.
Summer looked lovely wearing an off-the-shoulder sweater.

And here's a rare article that appeared in El País (Spain's largest selling newspaper) on October 10th, 2005 :
"THE DYNAMIC 'SPACE WESTERN' SERENITY OPENS THE SITGES FESTIVAL"
"A strange 38th edition of the Sitges Film Festival began yesterday; strange because it starts on a Sunday and will end on a Monday, but strange also for the films chosen for its inauguration. One, Joss Wheedon's Serenity, is a dynamic space western that falls fully into the generic typification chosen by the festival for many years, the cinema of the fantastic, and with its futuristic appearance, its creation of a powerful character (the child-medium -- half dreamer/visionary, half killing machine -- given life by the magnetic Summer Glau) and even its veiled political parable can aspire to be remembered among the well-chosen inaugurations of the last few years.
