In the entertainment industry and especially in filmmaking, certain actors represent a certain group of films. When it comes to women in science fiction and fantasy films, one woman is almost synonymous with this niche, her name is Summer Glau. She is an American actress who has been involved in many science fiction and fantasy television projects. Her work on the big screen has won her numerous fans around the world and earned her recognition among her peers.
Summer Glau Biography, Age
Glau was born on July 24, 1981, in San Antonio, Texas, and is of Scottish-Irish and German descent. She is the eldest of three girls born of middle-class parents. Her mother was a teacher at a school and her father earned his living as a general contractor. When Summer was still young, she received a scholarship for a ballet ensemble. Due to her commitment to this field, Glau had to be taught at home from grades 3 to 12.
Although she studied tango and flamenco and trained as a ballet dancer, unfortunately, a broken toe ended her hopes of a dance career, and when it became clear that dancing was no longer an option, Glau moved to Los Angeles in 2002 to pursue an acting career.
Somewhat appropriately, her first television credit came as a ballerina in an episode of the television series Angel in 2002, and it was through her performance that she became known to director Joss Whedon, who cast her in his short-lived but very popular television series Firefly. Glau played the role of River Tam. There followed several appearances in an episode of Cold Case, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, and a small role in the movie Sleepover. She appeared in the second season of the television series The Unit, where she played Crystal Urn, the girlfriend of Jeremy Erhart, who was having an affair with Mack.
Glau completed a recurring role starting in the third season of The 4400 series, but that was after she appeared in the second season of the premiere of the same series. When, on January 13, 2008, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles was dropped and Glau played the role of Cameron Phillips. She had many other roles along the same path, and the Terminator series made progress.
Joss Whedon cast Glau at least for the first two episodes of the second season as part of those who were to help produce his show Dollhouse. In 2010, she was selected for a starring role in NBC’s The Cape. Another leading role came later that year when she appeared in the horror-comedy Knights of Badassdom.
Summer Glau also did the voice-over for an animated film. She gained her first experience when she delivered the voice-over for Supergirl in the animated film Superman/Batman: Apocalypse. Her work on the project was well-received by Supergirl fans everywhere. As Skylar, she landed guest roles on Alphas. Glau was even featured in Keith Urban’s music video entitled Long Hot Summer.
