Actually, if you look closely, the railing looks brown beyond Summer in the green-screen picture as well. My guess is Summer leaned on the railing at the juncture of two boards and the boards reflect the light differently. Wood even from the same type of tree can and do react differently when exposed to sea water and sunlight. Perhaps one of the boards making up the handrail is a replacement and was stained differently
What I noticed about the railing in the second picture is that the perspective is wrong. The handrail should intersect that post a little lower down to align properly with perspective. The CGI extension of the handrail makes it appear to be angling up. Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles
I would say it's intended to blend in with the CGI... "I saw the victims of a senseless crime, I was reminded that we don’t know when or where our time on Earth will end. When or where we will breathe our last breath." -- Jessica "Redfield" Ghawi
Fox012 send me this photo and "suggested" that I write about this specific Summer Glau's expression (sticking out one's tong):
The truth is I had spotted that specific expression on tv/show movies before and I wanted to tell you under what circumstances Summer Glau uses it, as an actress; here we go:
Deadly Honeymoon (2010). Right before this scene, FBI Investigator Merced starts to question Lyndsey's (Summer Glau) version of what happened to her husband Trevor. Merced suspecs that Lyndsey might have killed him, forcing Lyndsey to explain herself on lies or inconssistencies on her previous statements. So Lyndsey pulls out a new card by influencing her friend in order to deflect suspicion from herself:
Summer Glau made the same grin in a similar situation as Maggie Hoapili in CBS's crime procedural Hawaii Five-0. She repeatedly stick out her tongue when H50 police officers confronted her with her lies during a previous interrogation session, which led to her being arrested.
I was watching a demo reel for actor Peter Katona (Peter who?) when two well-known faces showed up Btw, you may know Peter Katona from his role in 'Deadly Honeymoon' (the Hungarian who tried to seduce Lyndsey):
Brian Austin Green aka Derek Reese in Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.
Jon Huertas aka Detective Javier Esposito and Kacy's husband in Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.
Did you know that we got a glimpse of (presumably) Isabel Rochev in Arrow 1×22 “Darkness At The Edge of Town”?
Near the middle of the episode, we return on the island and found out what Fyers’s boss end game is. Fyers, the English man leading the operations on the island, is going to destabilize the Chinese economy by shooting down a Ferris Airlines plane. We see Fyers calling his boss using a satellite phone saying "It's happening". The man at the other end of the line then reports to a lady, visibly at the head of this operation. The woman is only shown from the knees down as she is sitting in a chair, and of course the actress supposed to play the part was not cast at the time this episode was filmed (read more about Summer Glau's casting process in the Blog: Arrow: Will Summer Glau be Oliver's new love interest?)
Did you notice that Summer Glau is the second actress in Arrow who has already played a character named River in a cult sci-fi tv show?
Of course, Summer Glau played River Tam in Firefly and its feature film continuation, Serenity.
Summer Glau as River Tam in Firefly.
English actress Alex Kingston, who played Laurel Lance mother in the first season of Arrow, is most widely known for her roles as Dr. Elizabeth Corday on the NBC medical drama ER and as River Song in Doctor Who.
