Quote (termi-ninja-tor)Here is one of my favorite interviews with Summer. She appears so innocent and open. Truly "genu-wine." I discovered that interview not so long ago and i was surprised i didn't recognize Summer's facial expressions at all; maybe it's due to that fact that she was very young, i don't know. As you said she appear so innocent here that my protective side is afraid someone would abuse of her; i prefer a more mature Summer, maybe not so innocent and naive as she used to be but still 1000% more genuine than every other actresse in Hollywood.

Of course this interview was likely made in 2002 since Firefly started showing in September 2002. With Summer's birthday in July 1981, she must have been 20 or 21 when this was shot, not particularly young. But her style is one of a younger girl -- so innocent and cute.

Maybe i'm too old for this but i have the feeling that Summer, at the age of 21, was more 'innocent' than current young actresses like Myley cyrrus or Selena Gomez (to me they are walking Britney Spears in the making).

She's more innocent than them even now a decade later in my opinion.

Which is exactly why I'm so angry to Whedon. What I see is that Summer may be a bit too naive and letting that bastard praying on her, like casting her in Dollhouse to boost ratings suddenly because the ship was sinking( using her fame from Terminator so he is even praying on Friedman and his team indirectly and TSCC > Whedons shows in my opinion, sorry browncoats) and then throwing her away when she is not needed.

Whedon is clever and Summer is a bit too naive especially if its about him.

Whedon should just leave her alone if he don't want to help her. And she doesn't need another role in his cheap film which he just threw to Nathan and "Topher" so they will still worship him. Summer doesn't have the time for this. If she wants just a job she does the 5 gum thing or joins Alphas.

She needed a friends help to overcome the bias against older actresses in blockbusters, Whedon didn't help her and now he is not needed. Sad thing is I don't even know Summer has a chance now to become A-list( certainly not as much as with Whedons help).

I would not use the word 'innocent' because Summer knows how Hollywood works by now but i share your view.

Though i don't understand your bias against Whedon. There is little we know about their relationship and even less about their professional relationship. What you describe as using her to boost Dollhouse ratings could also be interpreted as him giving Summer an extra-line on her C.V. Similarly, what you describe as a way to force Nathan and 'Topher' to worship him can be interpreted as the proof Whedon has not forgotten the people he worked with.

How do we know he didn't help her and how could he have achieved this before The Avengers?

To be correct, Hollywood's bias is against older actresses but also against inexperienced ones in blockbuster. In this regard, Olivia Wilde managed to overcome this bias (no idea how) so that it's very interesting for me as an observer to follow her career.

I want to remain optimistic about Summer's career.

I don't follow Wilde so you tell me. Maybe she had a friend who helped her who Summer doesn't possess it seems.

He is making a successful movie. Summer is not in it. Thats all I need to know about their relationship, and it proves rather my theory than the alternative so far. If I'm proved wrong I'd be willing to file an apology to Whedon. But I don't like what I see so far.

Your theory is not proven by one single movie, we are not in the know of the situation and circumstances of their relationship. The way your sounding in your posts on Joss, the only way for you to be satisfied is for Joss Whedon to not only cast Summer in everything he does, but he also has to insure that when he does cast her the project will be successful. Those standards will be quite impossible to satisfy.

Summer during her recent MTV interview at New York Comic Con.

I don't exactly know what kind of impression is this (other than super adorable). We know that the interviewer wasn't exactly a genius so maybe Summer was frustrated and maybe if she is frustrated she does an extreme Cameronish headtilt but I'm not sure. Opinions?

I'm not an expert but i watched the extract that screenshot is from (end of the first video on the news : MTV interviews Summer Glau NYCC 2011) and i think Summer's physical expressions reveal what she really mean, more than what she says at this precise moment, and sometimes it contradicts what she says.

To illustrate my observations, i will quote what Summer says and upload a screenshot of her, showing her expression, at the very moment she says it.

Quote (Summer)
When you sign on to play the game, you become a test subject and you test your senses.

Summer has two revealing expressions while saying this; first she twists her mouth then she tilts her head on the right with a pout (hence the funny pout). This clearly shows she doubts what she's saying and she expresses it by pouting as a sign of disbelief and tilts her head to the right, trying to evaluate if the interviewer is convinced, knowing she's not herself.





Quote
Dumbass : What website again?
Summer : survivalcode.com


When Summer quote the name of the website, she also tilts her head but to the left this time, which is a sign of seduction, especially by women (men don't do that); this is confirmed by the accompagnying smile. Indeed, Summer plays her role by inviting people, including the audience and the interviewer, to visit survivalcode.com, therefore she uses her charms.

Yeah, maybe he was only spared because he also got an iphone case form Nathan biggrin .

BTW its interesting that Summer does the headtilting in real life too, I figured she only does it during playing Cameron. I tell you its fairly addictive, even two weeks after I finished TSCC I found myself doing the same when I was frustrated wacko

Good observations, while Summer became arguably less shy during interviews she possibly still can't put on a poker face and say with straight face something which she is not entirely sure about.

I think your interpretation is very close to the truth, the mouth twisting is a very revealing sign too.

Well, she has a lot of charm to use and she is willing to do that now it seems.

BTW I think the Cameron tilt is not the seduction tilt but this particular one you mention is.

Given there is marketing considerations at stake, there is a 5 Gum's representative standing next to Summer. Summer is constantely turning her head to the left where he/she stands , looking for her/his approval; this was particularly blatant when the dumbass said Summer spoiled something and Summer answered "i think i'm good" but her body language says otherwise at 1:18 of 2nd video (turning head and crossing fingers, see screenshot below).
