Summer had a Twitter chat with fans for the Alphas season finale using @AlphasSyfy Twitter handle (since she is not on Twitter herself).
This was Summer's very first time on Twitter and fans were eagerly awaiting the opportunity to speak directly to her. Check out her twitter chat with fans below .
Summer Glau's Q & A on Twitter (in the proper question and answer order and sorted into three categories for easier reading) :
What was you favorite scene to shoot, Summer?
The only scene with all four girls
Hi, Summer! Did you do anything special to prepare for your role as Skyler on the show?
Skyler’s boots are magical. I just put those on and I’m ready to go.
Seriously, I always go on set and work on taking a part and putting together all of Skyler’s inventions.
How extensive do Skylar's powers run, could she analyze any machine regardless of size?
Heya Summer, whats your favorite scene with Zoe (Skylar) ?
My favorite scene from Alphaville where everyone that lives in the village is having dinner together.
Summer, which do you think is the coolest gadget that Skylar created?
The flame throw that I made at the end of Need to Know.
Hi Summer! If Alphas were real, would you want to be one? With what abilities?
If I wasn't acting there is no way I could be Skyler. Everyone knows I'm mechanically challenged. If I could choose an ability I think I'd choose Nina's.
Will we see you next season of Alphas, if they get renewed?
I really hope so
If there is a 3rd season and Skylar is in it how would you like to see the character develop?
I would like to see her push herself to trust the team.
If you could be any other character on Alphas who would it be and why?
It would be Harkin
Do you enjoy the techno-babble your characters do?
I don't enjoy it before it's been memorized
HEY Summer!!! Do you think we will ever see who Zoe's father is???? What do you think his alpha ability is???
I'd like to see who he is and give him a piece of my mind. Hopefully we'll find out what his Alpha ability is.
Is zoe as adorable as she looks? Loved the gorilla toy!
Whoa, Summer, how was it filming the elevator scene with all the guns?
Our guard was down. It was 4 in the morning. Great conversations.
Summer, have you figured out how to program the remote yet?
On her career
Ms. Glau are you considering pursuing writing or directing?
Looking to work with writers and directors. Not looking to writing and directing on my own.
I’m here to start tweeting. Any questions
Out of Cameron (TSCC), River (Firefly), or Skylar (Alphas), which was your favorite to play?
I'll always keep that secret
Ms Glau, what 70s or 80s TV show would you love to see rebooted and be part of?
I like to stick with originals
My favorite tv show growing up was Little House on the Prairie
Hey Summer! How did it feel when you first moved to LA to purse acting? What was the hardest part?
The hardest part was being brave enough to be myself.
It's funny how you're specialty has turned out to be sci-fi . Did you like this type of show growing up?
Yes. I was a huge Star Trek the Next Generation fan. It's a show I got to watch with my parents when I couldn't sleep.
Do you miss Firefly? Do you still keep in touch with the old cast?
Summer, if there were a fight between River and Cameron, who would win?
I’ll never give that away.
Hello summer, I am an up and coming actress and was wondering if you have any advice for making in the wonderful world of acting
Know what’s true.
Something Browncoats often debate: River with combat boots on, or barefoot. Which did you prefer?
Combat boots. The grates on the ship really were quite sharp on my feet.
Is there any actress/actor in particular, that you would like to work with in the future?
I would love to do more scenes with David Strathairn
Would you consider being Doctor Who’s companion for a season or two?
That's a great idea.
How was your time at Grey's Anatomy?
So much fun! Sandra Oh and Ellen are goddesses
Summer, is the Dollhouse real:-)
Some time and some where.
What show would you love to guest star on if you could? Can you sing?
New Girl (I'd love to guest star on). In terms of singing, it depends.
Any chance of Dr. Horrible sing along Blog 2?
If I get hired to sing it will be the proudest moment of my career
Summer, what is your favorite movie of all time?
That's the movie that most made me want to be an actress.I used to watch it with my grandma. And she gave me the soundtrack when I was child
Hi Summer! When are you coming to Europe? You have so much fans here :-)
Made plans to come last year, but wasn't able to make it due to work. 2013 should be my new European adventure.
Summer I'm a huge fan!! What is your dream role?
To be the female John Wayne.
Summer, nothing related to acting but what is your favorite band?
My favorite singer is George Strait. I like a lot of country music. There are a lot singer song writers that I love.
Hi Summer! What's your favorite color (I'm bad at asking questions...please take pity on me ;-)?

I love yoga, cardiobar and hiking.
Hey Summer! Do you have a favourite tv show at the moment to watch?
Hi Summer. Who do you look up to as an acting role model??
So many actors. Cate Blanchett

I don’t even know that pose.
What is your favorite sci-fi show?
Of all time it’s got to be Star Trek the Next Generation.
What's your favorite meal to eat while on set, and off set?
Taco Bell (on and off set).
Summer, scariest movie ever?
The last scary movie I watched was I Am Legend. To me that was scary.
Summer! Who's your celebrity crush?
Nervous laughter...I'm still crying. That was traumatic.
Summer, do you play any instruments?
Summer, are you a fan of Mystery Science Theater 3000 (aka MST3K)
I don't know that is.
A perfect day for you?
Thanks to all the participants to this live chat with Summer on Twitter. Hope everyone enjoyed it. On a side note, Syfy mentioned later that they had to end the @AlphasSyfy chat early because they reached their tweet limit.
Feel free to mention in the comment section if you recognize one of your questions and give us your appreciation of Summer's answer.
Side note : A Summer Glau fan and one of our dear friend, in this site and on Twitter, suffers from a cruel disease. Some of her friend, led by Ogy86, thought it would be a good idea if Summer could tweet a few words of encouragement and forwarded a request to @Alphassyfy earlier in the day.
It seems Summer Glau was sensible to their demand since the Alphas account tweeted the following message, shortly before the Q & A. I'm sure it will be a pleasant surprise for Karen.

Was very pleased by the Q & A session. Some of my friends got their questions answered. @SummerGlauDaily got three of her questions answered!
I asked a few questions myself.
1) In season 3 of #Alphas, what would you like to see happen with Skylar & Zoe?
2) Can you tell us what new acting projects you'll be working on? And what was it like playing an Elf.
3) Amazed at how U inhabit each character you've played. Which character has been the biggest challenge?
Of the three, I think I would have really liked to know the answer to the third. But even though none of my questions got answered, I really enjoyed the evening. I was very happy that the first tweet made was for our friend Karen. I think I'll smile forever over that kindness.

"Ms Glau, what 70s or 80s TV show would you love to see rebooted and be part of?

Summer had also mentioned she likes Little House on the Prairie.
As for me I asked her about whether she preferred combat boots or going barefoot on Firefly, if she was interested in writing or directing, and the MST3K one. I had sent a response to her explaining what the show was about, and that she could find it on YouTube, but I don't think she saw it.
