Question: Luckily the stuff you get to do in science fiction is really fun. What's the craziest thing you've found yourself doing?
Summer Glau: I think "Terminator" gave me a lot of those, "Oh my God, is this really happening?" moments. Like when there was a scene in "Terminator" where I was smashed between two semi-trucks and I was pleading for my life, that's one of those when you walk on set and they're like, "Are you ready to get in between these two trucks with your head sticking out?" and they give you all these different appliances glued on your face. You really do have this out-of-body experience where you're looking at yourself from above thinking, "This is my life today." I love that.
I felt that way with ["Jeff 1000"] too. I've never had the opportunity to do comedy before, so that was really fun for me. Standing there with this nine-foot robot and realizing that this is my collaborator for the day, that's another "this is my life" kind of moments. I connected with this nine-foot robot. That's the fun of science fiction.
