Having mastered the art of ballet, Summer Glau utilized that skill in her early work, catching the eye of Joss Whedon, who would employ the young actress in her first screen gig (the “Waiting in the Wings” episode of “Angel”) following a move to Hollywood from her native San Antonio in 2002. Anticipating a career in entertainment while learning ballet growing up, Summer cited Juliette Binoche as her favorite actress. She collaborated with Whedon a year later on the short-lived sci-fi series, “Firefly,” and reprised the role one more time for the show’s big-screen adventure, “Serenity,” in 2005.

During her time between projects, Summer kept busy with roles on shows like “Cold Case” and “The Unit,” as well as an appearance as Ticket Girl in the tween comedy “Sleepover.” It was her move to television in the later part of the 2000s, though, that established Summer Glau as a rising, promising actress capable of fitting in nicely in sci-fi, slightly dark roles – particularly as Cameron Philips on “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.” Steadily gaining exposure as the decade winds down, Summer found herself ranked #8 on Wizard’s magazine “Sexiest Women of TV” list in early 2008.

We featured Summer and her River Tam character in our Looks That Kill - How Chicks Who Kick Ass feature.

Summer Says

On “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles”:
“It's the most difficult acting I've ever done. Very, very demanding, and I wanted to do my best because many people don't get a script like that, especially in TV. It's just a really special script and it's definitely my favorite.”
