The Telegraph did a short telephone interview with Summer where she talks about her first convention, how she started her acting career and about the casting for TSCC.
I didn’t know what to expect at all,” she says on the line from Los Angeles. “You never know what people are going to ask you to sign or what costumes they will turn up in.
When you’re first starting out as an actress you audition for everything and you never know what’s going to hit,” she says. “And my first job was with Joss Whedon.
I did not want to go to the audition and my mum got really upset and yelled at me and said, ‘Get your rear end in the car! You’re an actress, go and audition.

Here is the full video of Summer’s panel at this years Emerald City Comiccon divided into 4 parts.
The panel was really interesting and we got a lot of great information ,like that she likes the show Modern Family, or how she picks her roles. Great news are also that she is coming back to Alphas. Her new show Scent of the Missing is waiting to get picked up by TNT and fingers crossed that it will happen. She also talks about her time on Grey’s Anatomy. Completely new is also that she auditioned for a role in the movie Black Swan that unfortunately didn’t get picked up.
Summer also reveals how a season 3 of TSCC would have looked like (Summer would play Allison most of the time and you would see Cameron in Flashbacks). Her early acting days, Firefly, the relationship to her fans and much more is discussed in the panel. There is also a certain cook book mentioned, that was made for her birthday.
Last day of the Emerald City Comiccon and here are a couple images from Summer’s panel and more from her photo/autograph session. Summer’s queue was again insanely long. We collected some impressions from the panel.
Because its April 1st, the moderator made a joke about Summer had to leave.
Summer about LARPing: “LARPing is dangerous.LARPing is no joke.”
Summer on playing River: “came pretty naturally, actually.”
She says that every acting job is a learning experience.
“I’m definitely not a genius and definitely not…good at martial arts, but… [River] was just a part of me.” (I think we all slightly disagree here. )
How was the con for everyone and how was it to meet Summer? Any interesting and funny stories to share? Put them in the comments. We will update the post with new images when they arrive. If you have some, don’t hesitate to send them.
If you want to send fan mail to Summer, here is a new official address that is effective immediately. Like always you need a self addressed stamped envelope or international reply coupons. The address is:
3940 laurel canyon blvd.
Studio City, CA 91604
Please note that fan mail send to any other address will not be answered and it can not be guaranteed that mail send to the Schiff company will reach Summer.
Due to Summer’s schedule it still might take some time till you get an answer, but when you send fan mail to this address, she will get it. If you already send a letter to an old address, the best is to send it again to the new one.
We just uploaded a couple new/old magazine scans from different years. They feature The Cape, TSCC and Firefly. A huge thanks for all the snippets goes to James for taking the time to scan them. Hope you enjoy the scans.
SciFi Now Issue #1 about the early stages of TSCC and the cult show Firefly.
Last but not least are 3 scans from the SFX from May 2011, that features The Cape (IMHO, the author is a little to harsh here) and has a snippet from the T3 convention where Summer was very sorry that she couldn’t make it. (But we got to see her great performance in Alphas :))
