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.

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.

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.
