Thanks for posting and welcome to the Summer Glau Wiki rafbey!

I embedded the video for you :



I find it interesting that the poster of the video decided to title his video "Summer Glau dancing" and not "Summer Glau fighting"; indeed, this is what makes her performance in Serenity so special, enjoyable and addictive (thanks Joss Whedon).

In order to illlustrate Summer Glau's unique contribution, here's a video of River's fighting rehearsal by a woman who is a martial arts experts; the fighing itself is ok and would be great in an action B-movie but Summer Glau's own interpretation is what makes it so special and why theses fighting scenes contributed to make of River an iconic character.



I let you imagine Summer's reaction if she saw that video; we know she had dance training and had great physical abilities at the time but she sure would have been intimidated; however she managed to create an unforgetable fighting/dancing scene.


You can also find me on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr or Youtube

It's interesting that Summer says she can't dance anymore because of that foot injury, but she still seems pretty light on her feet in that one video.

"My favorite thing about River is that she gets to be barefoot so much of the time. I don't like shoes very much." - Summer Glau

Well, it fits perfectly obviously, those scenes aren't only about a badass girl who beats up a bunch of guys but about a girl who does it with unimaginable grace and beauty. I always loved how Summer utilizes her ballerina background in her acting( not just here), it makes a beautiful synergy and makes her work truly artistic.

And the devotion and sacrifice she showed just so she can do these scenes even if she didn't necessarily had to made me absolutely confident in that Summer shouldn't be viewed as a simple entertainer who just entertains people but she is an artist whose works are like gifts from a great person to the audience.

The same devotion, art and effort shows every time she is onscreen BTW.

Dunno, maybe hardcore ballet dancing still puts a lot more strain on her feet than the fight scenes or casual dancing or the brief ballet steps in TSCC.

I think there is a video somewhere about one of Summers dancer era dancing performances where she does insane things, surpassing even the fights.


Summer Glau is so awesome, it isn't even funny!

Yes great videos, but you already posted threads about your videos a couple of weeks ago. The new threads have been merged with the old ones.
