14 Mar

Name:
Summer Lyn Glau
Age: 30
Hometown: San Antonio, TX
Noteworthy Roles: River Tam in Firefly
Cameron Phillips in Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles
Tess Doerner in The 4400

Summer has been (willingly or not) typecast as a kickass sci-fi chick. Her role as River Tam in the totally awesome TV show Firefly (that was most unfortunately cancelled by some idiots) and the sequel/pseudo-conclusion movie; Serenity, should only be mentioned and any true geek will, for lack of a better term, totally geek out. I don’t know if it’s because she reminds me of the hot, crazy, alternative girl from high-school or what but she’s definitely got my heart.

Firefly - Serenity - RiverThe fact that she takes on such a plethora of sci-fi roles earns her a place in our Geek Of The Week vault. She is able to convince us she is a telekinetic prodigy, a paranoid schizophrenic, and even a motherflippin’ cyborg.

Her years of training as a ballet dancer are not only super hot but helped her to be able to easily learn how to play a character that can truly whip some ass.

I’m still a little disappointed she isn’t going to be in Suckerpunch; or am I the only one who feels as though she would have fit in there perfectly?

Summer definitely deserves this weeks title, I’d tell her myself how much she is praised in the geek world but I’m sure she already has a good idea. Besides if I got the chance it’d be more awkward than when Leonard, Raj, and Wolowitz met her on the train on Big Bang Theory.

As with all geek girls, we have to show evidence that they can give reason as to why we swoon over them and can look good despite what character they are playing:

Some may say she can only play one type of role but I know two things: Summer Glau is a definite geek and you never mess with a girl with a gun ….
