Did we cover this topic yet here? Would be a shame if Summer does this too.

"The fact is, a guest star on a TV show can [get] around $10,000, whereas you can work two days at a convention and pull in the same amount — and sometimes double and triple that," says Firefly actress Jewel Staite, who did 12 conventions last year while pregnant with her son and, as she says, "pretty much not hireable." She'll do the same when she has a second child. "Have I turned down smaller jobs that won't pay as much? Absolutely. It would be silly of me to say yes to the job that pays $10,000 for a week of work and bow out of a big convention where I could potentially walk away with $40,000 in two days."

That decision, however, can prove shortsighted. Multiple producers say if guest or recurring actors turn them down in favor of conventions, they likely won't get called again. In some cases, genre shows have started putting their superhero boot down on talent who ask for time off to do a fan event. But some producers use the second revenue stream to lure talent to genre shows. "In a world where residuals don't mean as much, conventions are like residuals," says Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow executive producer Marc Guggenheim. Adds Staite, "My actor friends are always saying how much they're dying for a genre show just to break into the convention world."


don't bother they're here

Thank you for mentioning this interesting article that gives precise figures. I had done a similar evaluation of what an actor can earn at these conventions a while ago and ended with similar figures.
Summer has made the choice to make a break from acting to raise her child and place her career second in order to spend time with her family. There's a good chance she has turned down job opportunities last year because of that.
Meanwhile, attending conventions is a good way to make money while pleasing fans who are more than happy to meet their favorite celebrity.

Needless to say, I miss seeing her on tv.

Which female action heroes would you call on to save the world?

Quote
Summer Glau

She's played the Terminator on the small screen, and could give Arnie a run for his money on the big screen. With a remarkable ability to switch from ice cold to warm to vulnerable to downright lethal, Summer Glau is the perfect lead for the sci-fi action flick.

Yes indeed.  A lot of Australians are fans of Summer - they have good conventions.  They were also ABBA fans years ago.

I think I'd call on Cameron to be ruthless.  She wasn't very careful when she attacked Roger Shafer, Moishe's bodyguard and the Russian Guy who threatened Maria.

Look what she did to Vick Chamberlain. (Good job John wasn't there to see her cut off his ****).  If you remember, he was married to Barbara.



RIP VICK!!

Hasta La Vista, Arnie: Why Now Is The Perfect Time To Bring Back 'The Sarah Connor Chronicles'

Quote
Where the show always strived was with Summer Glau's Cameron, a complex character who became the show's unofficial Arnie and a poster girl for the series. The Terminator name also brought with it big expectations and again the James Cameron curse struck. For those who tuned in expecting to see a wild stunt with a HGV, or a high-speed car chase, you would have to wait a good few episodes. Friedman didn't want to emulate Cameron's work, he wanted to move the story on!

#471 Yes I read that today.  You're right, fanfiction writers are proof enough that this particular series, moreso than many others (boring), has the full gamut of possibilities.
Time Travel, computers, Cyborgs, relationships, the future, the past, etc.
In the Terminator realm, anything can be possible.   The best story for writers with imaginative minds and a desire to check out the internet for the latest technology.

Adding to this post, as it is relevant, did anyone read this:

Firefly, Buffy and Angel are leaving Netflix April 1, so enjoy them while you can. As an aside, all these are Fox owned shows, Fox either wants some crazy amount of money and Netflix didn't renew their contract, or they want you to watch them on Hulu, which they are part owners of.

What else happens on April 1st? Can't put my finger on it...
