Quotes

Below you find a couple of quotes from Summer:

  • You know, I’ve always just made the choices on my characters based on my connection to them, and I’ve made decisions that maybe other people haven’t understood; why I passed on something, for instance.
  • When I was little, I had a feeling that I was going to end up being an actress. I spent a lot of time alone, I was a very shy girl, and I would pretend I was telling someone about this new role that I got.
  • When I stopped doing ballet, I started training in the pool. I would do my barre exercises in the water, because that prevents injuries.
  • There’s this certain caliber of dancing I was striving for when I was younger, and it’s very hard for me to go back and just do it for fun. But I take all other kinds of classes: I take jazz classes, modern classes, and I love doing that instead of going to the gym. The gym is not very much fun.
  • The number one thing I look for in a man is integrity. A man who does what he says he’s going to do.
  • Sometimes when I get home after a long day, I’ll turn on music – I love Latin, disco, and pop – and do my own workout, even if it’s a short one. Know a good song to work out to? ‘I Will Survive.’
  • Lying about anything is the cruelest thing in the world you could ever do. Be who you are. Don’t try to be someone you’re not. It never works.
  • I’ve done other things, but it always seems like my sci-fi projects have been what people respond to the most, because those fans are extraordinary, so passionate.
  • I’m very physical. It’s an important part of being a woman – feeling good about yourself and really being in tune with your personality.
  • I’m definitely one of those actresses who comes to a set knowing how I want to do a scene, and I definitely love input from my directors and my writers. I know that there’s some actors who like to be left alone, they like to be very independent, but I actually really enjoy the teamwork.
  • I’m definitely one of those actresses who comes to a set knowing how I want to do a scene, and I definitely love input from my directors and my writers.
  • I worked on ‘Sarah Connor’ even longer than ‘Firefly.’ And I always remembered how generous everyone was to me when I didn’t know what to do, and I didn’t know the rules, and I didn’t know camera angles, and I didn’t know lighting.
  • I was always the kid on scholarship, I was a soloist with my company, I’d been working with the symphony since I was 14.
  • I still dance, probably three times a week, unless I’m working on a crazy job, and then I just don’t have any free time at all.
  • I love it if a man makes an effort to get to know my parents and sisters. Getting to know the people who matter to me goes a long way.
  • I like pretty conservative guys, good guys. I always look for the qualities I find in my father.
  • I always look for roles that make me feel good about being a girl. I have to say that there are a lot of roles out there that make me feel really bad about being a girl. You can imagine what the things are and I shall not go into detail.
  • For breakfast, I always have eggs – whole eggs. I think the fats are really important. I also like turkey bacon and really hearty whole-grain bread. I’m very picky about it. You need bread that’s high in fiber and low in carbs. It’s hard to find, but it’s worth it.
  • As I’ve gotten older, I’ve come to realize how important it is to vary your workouts.
  • After doing ‘Firefly’ and moving on, I always wanted to be part of a series again. I love doing films, too, but there’s just something special about being part of the team and feeling like you’re actually a part of the family, and I always look to re-create that.
