Summer Glau – Spicy Sci-Fi Queen of The Hour


Sexy, unconventional beauty, and always badass in her roles, Summer Glau is the definition of a Sci-Fi queen even though her star is still rising and she is relatively unknown to the casual movie watcher. Summer is probably best known for her roles as River Tam in Firefly/Serenity, and Cameron in Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. She is normally cast as a lithe femme fatale, or a brainy nerd girl who sits behind a pc.

Summer has a really attractive smile—which we barely get to see—but her eyes can switch to a piercing look that signals danger whenever she’s about to kick some ass. She was born in San Antonio Texas and is a critically acclaimed ballet dancer (no wonder movies keeps her doing splits).

What do we love about Summer Glau?

Summer is miss reliability and is normally the one spark in an otherwise dull movie or show that people remember. We love that she likes being a Sci-Fi queen and brings her all to the table even when it seems to be a relatively small project.

What does it take to be a Spicy Movie Dogs Sci-Fi Queen? Well we generally look for you being in 5 or more movies or shows that can be classified as Science Fiction (or Fantasy) and being a name that gets tossed around with the fan-base. Being a Sci-Fi queen is an honor especially now when the genre is extremely popular with the advent of comic book movies and giant robots dominating the big screen.
