Summer Cancels her Appearance at Supanova

Added by chrisdvanne on Nov 07, 2013 | 7 COMMENTS

Supanova Expo organizers just announced on their Facebook page that Summer Glau had to pull out of the Australian convention. Bad luck for all her fans who expected to see her in Brisbane and Adelaide. The good point about that is that it looks Summer has the chance to be a series lead in a new TV show.
UPDATE: Summer's new TV show that she screen tested for might very well be Crackle's new legal thriller "Sequestered".
Hopefully her many Australians fans will be able to catch her at a Supanova event next year. Meanwhile, we wish Summer all the best for the lead screen test and also for her future endeavors.
Here's Supanova Expo message:
It is with the heaviest of hearts that we have to announce that Summer Glau has had to postpone her visit. An opportunity to vie for a TV series lead came up that despite every effort, to adjust her screen test call, could not be moved or tested for except in person. 
Summer is very distraught about this minutes to midnight cancelation, as she understands how much love her fans have for her, yet hopes those same fans will wish her the best in seeking to remain on their screens doing what she does best, which is deliver outstanding performances. 
Lastly, Summer hopes to see you all during a tour during the next 12 months to make up for the disappointment of this time round while entertaining you on the small screen with performances in Arrow and... Well, we'll just have to see about the rest.

And now we all wonder what this possible new tv lead is .

And may I remember everyone that is just a screen test, she HAS NOT been hired in a new TV show yet.

A screen test is a method of determining the suitability of an actor or actress for performing on film or in a particular role. The performer is generally given a scene, or selected lines and actions, and instructed to perform in front of a camera to see if they are suitable. The developed film is later evaluated by the relevant production personnel such as the casting director and the director. The actor may be asked to bring a prepared monologue or alternatively, the actor may be given a script to read at sight ("cold reading"). In some cases, the actor may be asked to read a scene, in which another performer reads the lines of another character.

You'll notice that Supanova's message says "had to postpone", which means Summer might very well reschedule for Gold Coast, Melbourne, Sydney or Perth next year.

the news is a little disappointing but i wish Summer well and hope that she gets the part!

Supanova was not very lucky with their guest line up (several important media guest had to cancel, including Peter Dinklage and Summer Glau).

That said, I'm glad Summer has this opportunity to perform a screen test. While Summer attending conventions is very important for us fans, since she has no online presence or doesn't attend public events very often, her main job is to perform on screen.

Yey! Summer has an audition for a new show! Fingers crossed!

very unfortunate for the fans of supernova, but as they say every cloud has a silver lining, as in the screen test that Summer has to put first, its a magical opportunity for her to grab a chance of more success, whether its with the brilliant Arrow or in a new series, good luck summer.

It's a bummer that she had to cancel her appearance, but it's good to hear that she's auditioning for a new project (which is always good news). I guess we'll find out what she has auditioned for soon...
