A few impressions from the Q&A panel: (Thanks to Geek Gals and SciFi4Me)

Summer Glau says how she does miss getting lost in her work but she would miss being w/ her daughters even more

What’s up with Summer Glau? She’s got a series [Wu Assassins] coming out soon this summer!

Moderator asks a #Firefly question: is there anything in the pipeline?? #SummerGlau says she doesn’t know and she’s torn about it too.

Summer Glau says her meal scenes w/ Ron Glass were great: “he was so wise and zen and seasoned. He had seen it all…”

I appreciated [Ron Glass]’s point-of-view and what he taught me,” #SummerGlau says about her late #Firefly costar

Fan asks how #SummerGlau felt about the direction of the #Firefly movie #Serenity: “Joss was boss so I just smiled and nodded…”

“I think we can all agree that we wonder… Why??? Why,” #SummerGlau adds about the direction of the #Serenity movie

summerglau on playing #rivertam on #firefly: “I got to get away with a lot of kookiness because I wasn’t carrying the heavy points of the story.”

SummerGlau says “I had come from the ballet world where everyone does the same thing & acting felt like the wild wild west… I felt alive.”

“I found my people… Well, Joss found me, really,” #SummerGlau says

Moderator: is there a typical #summerglau day? Summer: there is, but it’s really boring.

Fan asks what is life like outside of acting. #SummerGlau talks about being a mom! She says she also tries to educate herself too since she did not attend college. She reads & grows roses.

Fun fact: #SummerGlau grows her own food! Quite the green thumb.

summerglau trivia: currently obsessed with growing her own roses 😁

Favorite #Firefly episode? #SummerGlau says “Objects in Space”!

What storyline didn’t get enough credit? #SummerGlau says “We always tried to get Joss to tell us stories. All his characters are so rich & complex… My favorite was Shepphard Book’s… looking back, that’s the one I feel the most longing for.”

Advice for ppl moving to LA to start their careers? #SummerGlau says for ppl to be themselves and share what they can share.

SummerGlau said she was scared when she first moved to LA, she had 2nd thoughts but her parents convinced her to see it through.

summerglau advice on moving to LA: hold onto what makes you #unique because that’s often what is needed.

SummerGlau says the roles she’s gotten have been very therapeutic for her. “River was my first role. I would do things in auditions that were off-the-wall or strange… When I found River, it suited me.”

summerglau: “also, I can kill you with my brain” <—- the line she gets asked most often to say by fans.
And that’s the last question of the panel. Thanks for hanging out 😁 up next

Tomorrow will be the final day of this convention and your last chance to meet Summer. Don’t forget that there will be no panel tomorrow, as it has been already scheduled for today.
