Sunday's event ends a three-day festival of fun and celebration of super heroes at Supanova Sydney. So today is your last chance to get your dose of pop-culture goodness and stop at Summer's booth to say "Hi" and take a selfie! I hope everyone had a fun day and met cool people in Sydney yesterday and I can't wait to see what today brings.

Don't forget that Summer's panel is scheduled at 11:00 am and her two Photo Ops at 12:30 pm and 4:40 pm.

Check out below a random selection of photos of Summer's final day at the convention and follow the links to the gallery for more. Thank you all for sharing.

Watch below a clip from Summer's Supanova Sydney panel, in which Summer is asked by a young fan to show off her River Tam skills.


Read below a few impressions from Summer's panel, courtesy of The Trekzone Plexus :

‘I started out pretty serious in ballet when I was 5.’ Summer Glau reflecting on the start of her career. #TrekzoneLive #SupanovaExpo

‘I didn’t have a backup plan if I got injured… and then I did so acting was where I went.’ #TrekzoneLive #SupanovaExpo

I sort of still feel like I’m a dancer…

Summer reflecting on her beginnings in acting… a Ballerina in Angel then River in #Firefly. #TrekzoneLive #SupanovaExpo

Questions from the audience begin… ‘what’s your favourite accent.. and would you consider doing an Australian accent.’ ‘My favourite.. would be… Australian’ #TrekzoneLive #SupanovaExpo

I think I wanted to have a British accent because I wanted to do period pieces (like Jane Austin) #TrekzoneLive #SupanovaExpo

I just kind of winged it (casting for #Angel) with an accent with Joss asked for it… then I switched to Russian. I visualised all my Russian teachers yelling at me! #TrekzoneLive #SupanovaExp

Audience Q.. ‘What was it like kissing @StephenAmell?’ .. ‘It’s a fast show.. so I don’t remember too much.’ #TrekzoneLive #SupanovaExpo

We felt like family’ Summer on the twists and turns of #Firefly #TrekzoneLive #SupanovaExpo

‘How did you interpret the dialogue of #Firefly and #Serenity’ .. ‘For me it felt so natural. The way Joss writes kind of pierces through.’ #TrekzoneLive #SupanovaExpo

After the two pages (I had for the audition of River) I felt so connected. I think where I was in my life, so new to acting… I was able to really dive into the scenes without having to force it too much… It was very instinctual.’ #TrekzoneLive #SupanovaExpo

Usually when you get to set.. they go through the dialogue and (block through) … my scene where I jump out of the box naked — I just went for it, I did the whole scene full out. Then all my cast mates.. smiled at me, then left. #TrekzoneLive #SupanovaExpo

Then Joss came up to me and was like ‘that was full out!’ .. I learnt then that you ease into it.. #Firefly #TrekzoneLive #SupanovaExpo

Is it still really weird to still see #Firefly fans at conventions? ‘It’s still surreal, it feels like I got away with something… it was my first job.’ #TrekzoneLive #SupanovaExpo

‘I wanna be a mermaid..I’ve had a deathly fear of whales my whole life’ #TrekzoneLive #SupanovaExpo

When I was cast in #Arrow, I was expecting to fight some people… but it was a mlre sophisticated, grown up role for me. It was a lot of fun. #TrekzoneLive #SupanovaExpo

I remember when Joss said he was going to make River a martial arts expert… I met with the stunt coordinator, it was like my first day at ballet again. They created a technique where it would seem plausible that River could kick a room of burly men #TrekzoneLive #SupanovaExpo

I had to actually kick and punch the stunt guys… there was one concussion, but I don’t think it was my fault. I’m so grateful that Joss let me do it myself. #TrekzoneLive #SupanovaExpo

‘How did you almost become the Pink Power Ranger?’ It was my first big audition in Hollywood, I could kick really high… but I hadn’t taken an acting class yet… I was fortune’s fool in that moment. #TrekzoneLive #SupanovaExpo
