`geek chic` summer glau still looks amazing with a pair of glasses on, she really suits them actually looks quite cute, loved her in dollhouse she was great, mind you topher couldnt keep his eyes of bennett, he was absolutely besotted with her who wouldnt be, great chemistry between them, great pictures,
I was in shock, still sitting in my chair, staring blankly at the TV as the closing credits rolled. I had to review my recording to understand what I saw. I could not believe what I had seen, then I could not understand why Joss Whedon did this.
The event is so shocking, even watching the episode now it is still such a surprise to see it as there is no warning. Nothing in the entire episode leads you to think Bennett is about to be killed. Joss Whedon is the devil incarnate. Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles

Summer Glau made the list for her role as Bennet Halverson in Joss Whedon's Dollhouse
As seen in the not very popular series Dollhouse(2004) by Joss Whedon, Halverson Bennett (played by Summer Glau) is the classic super genius of the series, and unfourtunetly, her being female is still pretty notable in our society's mindset (hooray slow progress). None the less she is the depiction of a stereotypical "computer nerd"; she speaks quickly with long words no one cares to understand, she's "socially awkward" and yes... she wears plaid- all at first glance.
This is all until her character is developed throughout the series; [...]
Transcript of a conference call with Joss Whedon, Creater/Executive Producer/Writer/Director of Dollhouse on September 2009
Question: Can you talk about the casting of Summer Glau and also what’s in store for her character? Joss Whedon: The casting of Summer was based on the knowledge that Summer existed and the character was created with the hopes that she would play it, which she is right on stage right now doing. She’s playing the programmer of another Dollhouse. It’s a somewhat eccentric part but hopefully different than what we’ve seen her do before. The most useful part of that is that the writers work twice as hard to make sure that the character really pops and pays off because they know that it’s going to be played by somebody extraordinary.
OMG! When Bennett died I literally screamed "NOOO!!!!!" And then I just stood there, frozen. And I think I had a few tears. "CURSE YOU JOSS FOR YOUR SUDDEN BUT INEVITABLE BETRAYAL!!!" *sniff* Anywho,
I have gotten.... 3 of my friends addicted to dollhouse and my mom. We have this dance that we do whenever the opening credits come on. Sometimes when we go to my place for lunch, we watch dollhouse, but we're too busy watching it that we forget to eat our lunch. ☮"Just because no one has been fortunate enough to realize how wonderful you are, doesn't mean you shine any less." - Summer Glau☮
Summary: What if one day, Joss Whedon's show "Dollhouse" came to life? What if Summer was an active? Includes some Topher and Bennett moments. Or should I say Fran and Summer moments?Follow/FavoriteRated: Fiction T - English - Romance/Sci-Fi - Chapters: 2 - Words: 1,485 - Reviews: 7 - Favs: 1 - Follows: 1 - Updated: 06-01-13 - Published: 05-26-13 - id: 9328823 ☮"Just because no one has been fortunate enough to realize how wonderful you are, doesn't mean you shine any less." - Summer Glau☮

"It's Fun Being An Asshole!": An Interview with Fran Kranz on Joss Whedon By Laura Berger for popmatters
Here's an excerpt from the interview:
Question: So you just described Topher as child-like, and I wanted to ask about the role that Bennett, (Summer Glau) plays [in his arc]. Did you see the introduction of this love interest as a means to humanize Topher, and also to make him more adult?
Fran Kranz: Yeah, it’s a good point. I don’t think that Topher makes any comment about a woman one way or another.
Yeah, he’s surrounded by all of these beautiful women. I think that there’s a kind of doctor’s surgical coldness to him that prevents him from being attracted the way that a regular [heterosexual]male would be in that situation.
Question: And it’s interesting because it seems like it’s really Bennett’s mind that he’s initially drawn to.
Fran Kranz: Well, also Summer Glau is gorgeous, so… [laughs]
I love Bennett, sometimes she looks like a very sexy school teacher, sometimes just pretty, but it does not mean that I am a fan of the Dollhouse, because it is not so. I regret that in some battle scenes played Dushku, not Summer, I think that Summer would play not worse. The second point is how ends the story of Bennet... It's unfair.
