Summer Glau's television credits include guest appearances on Angel, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Cold Case and The Unit. She has also had featured roles in several sci-fi TV series like Firefly, The 4400 and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.
Glau was trained as a ballerina and parlayed her dancing talent into her brief appearance on Angel, where she first met Joss Whedon. It was there that she first caught the eye of director Whedon, the creator of both Angel & Buffy the Vampire Slayer, who later cast her in his short-lived TV series Firefly as River Tam, a role she reprised for the series feature film sequel, Serenity.
Summer has since become a popular fan favorite genre performer and easily earns inclusion as one of my own favorite "Gal" Friday's.
This young lady really has something going for her, classic good looks, natural athleticism, strong acting talents, innate sexuality and she also extends her personal beliefs into charitable work on behalf of animals, women & children.
