CBR TV @ NYCC: Summer Glau on “The Human Preservation Project”

“Firefly” and “Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles” actress Summer Glau spoke with CBR at the New York Comic Con, but not about a new television show or movie. Glau is currently involved in “The Human Preservation Project,” an Alternate Reality Game (ARG) in which she plays a scientist named Natalia Suttinger. Glau speaks about her geek leanings and how she chooses roles, as well as compares her role as Natalia to some of her other genre performances.

Glau also discussed the interactive nature of the ARG format as compared to the more one-sided aspect of traditional media, and sees it as a positive step for future storytelling.

      Man, i love summer.Summer Glau is an amazing actress, unfortunately she was underused in The Cape. I hope one day she gets a show thatu2019s awesome and doesnu2019t get cancelled. She deverves that much, such a talented actress.

      • Matthew Lane

        Yeah but the cape was a bit of a steaming pile of poorly used cliches… I’d say that Glau wishes to not be remembered for having any part in that show.

          Give your opinion about ‘The Cape’ as long as you want but please don’t presume what Ms Glau thinks…You’re not her.

          • Matthew Lane

            Wow… What the heck is wrong with everyone on here… Its like you are all suffering from serious PMS. Chill out dude: All i was saying is that the cape was so bad, that i doubt Glau would want to be remembered for her role on it.

      Great interview!nThis is also why I am a fan of Summer’s; because she is one of the very few actors, and almost the only young female actor that makes me think, wow, she’s really talented, and yet doesn’t seem to have that over-inflated Hollywood ego.

    Every positive that has been and will be said about Summer Glau has not been and will never be good enough.

      Summer is somewhat of a low profile actress. That is very respectable and i hope very strongly for her that it stays that way. The hollywood jetset seems to crave popularity at a too high cost. Up to now it seems, Summer is doing a pretty good job. I respect more each day, artists that aren’t too “out there” and “frickin’ big” ;-)

      I’ve never seen anyone that pretty, beautiful, attractive, hot, and with all that, look so innocent, then turn around and pull off playing a character that’s tough as nails. What more could you want? Well, more of her on the big screen. nWhew…makes your blood boil. She could be what Sigourney Weaver was in the 80’s. Hope she makes it to the top.

    • Matthew Lane

      but she’s not that much of an actress, she lacks for range, in a pretty serious way. Every character she plays is the same character with some slight alteration (& the alteration is usually appearance).nnAs far as acting goes shes not all that good.

      • http://summerglauwiki.com val champ

        I would normally respect your opinion but then why did you answered by saying the same exact things?nThat is called spaming and you’ve lost all credibility.

        • Matthew Lane

        You need to watch more media, child. You have no idea what you are talking about.nnMaybe you should actually watch television & film before commenting on it, you blithering idiot.

        • Boabie

          Gee, you’d think Matthew had a right go or something.u00a0 Lighten up, guys.u00a0 You can disagree wth his opinion without calling him an idiot.u00a0 He’s entitled to his opinion, even if it’s about someone you really like.

        • Matthew Lane

          Child? Wow, way to jump straight to condescending, grandpa. Every single TV show that she’s been in, she plays the social awkward, beautiful mind character, be it: Terminator, The Cape, Dollhouse & Fire Fly… Every single character she plays & every single role she plays is always the socially awkward, character with some level of mental genius (an the mental instability that goes along with it) & exactly the same speech pattern: Short clipped statements of fact, spoken quickly.nnLike i said, always the same character… Without fail. But feel free to correct me, if you can think of her in a role that didn’t fall into that particular niche, i’d be interested in seeing you prove my hypothesis incorrect.

            I’m glad you’ve taken the time to detail the character she’s best known for; Summer Glau has played two of the most iconic character in recent sci-fi history and is beloved by many fans. Do you really think that as many people would appreciate her if she did not put a great performance and proved she’s a at least a decent actress. Think to the many female lead in sci-fi shows who have not the same fame as Summer Glau. Good writing isn’t everything and good acting is required to acquire that kind of fame (even if not mainstream).

          • Matthew Lane

            “Do you really think that as many people would appreciate her if she did not put a great performance and proved she’s a at least a decent actress”nnYes, yes i do. Sure she’s good at playing that one character she plays, but she’s not so good at any other character; as shown by the fact she always playes that one character.

          • James

            Wow, someone is sexually frustrated with a huge obsessive crush on Summer Glau.u00a0 Someone get a restraining order against this psychotic, stat!!

          • Matthew Lane

            LOL. i love how you had to jump straight to appeals to motive. If you’ve got something real to say, say it, but don’t rely on lame duck logical fallacies, in what can only be called a “drive by reply.”nnEither refute my statement that she lacks for range by show casing roles she’s played where she’s not fallen into the above stated role, or accept that she lacks for range as an actress.

      • Omegasaga

        and the HATER award goes to……..

        • Matthew Lane

          Stating demonstrable fact is not hating. I don’t hate Summer Glau, but i am aware that she doesn’t have nearly the range that people think she does. Every character she has played are exactly the same niche character role. nnIf she were to have an actual leading role, she would have to be able to be a strong enough actress to maintain a character, which i don’t think she can (based on what she’s done in the past). She would actually need to be able to deliver entire sentences of dialogue & not just clipped exposition dumps. She would need to be able to act well enough that she wasn’t “that introverted chick” & i just dont see that being within her ability asu00a0an actress.

    Dear Hollywood, there’s your Wonder Woman.

    • Matthew Lane

      Really? Because Glau isn’t really all that talented as an actress… She can play one roll well & Wonder Woman is not in that role.

      • http://fluffrick.wordpress.com/ fluffrick

        And again, rather than providing any actual worthwhile commentary on why you think that she’s not a good actress, you’ve provided a retread of your previous words, with added misspelling.u00a0nnPerhaps time to cease with the Trolling, yes?

        • Matthew Lane

          Well then i’ll reiterate what i’ve already said up page.nnEvery single TV show that she’s been in, she plays the social awkward, beautiful mind character, be it: Terminator, The Cape, Dollhouse & Fire Fly… Every single character she plays & every single role she plays is always the socially awkward, character with some level of mental genius (an the mental instability that goes along with it) & exactly the same speech pattern: Short clipped statements of fact, spoken quickly.nWithout fail, its always a different itteration of exactly the same character. She lacks for range.

          • http://summerglauwiki.com Ricardo Baer

            You use the same kind of foolish arguments as people noticing she played in sci-fi shows that were cancelled too soon and deducting she was cursed, forgetting that it’s the case of 90% of Sci-fi shows on broadcast networks and forgetting that the last shows she guest starred in, aka Chuck and Alphas, were renewed after her appearance.nNoticing that she played similar characters doesn’t mean that she lack of range, just that she’s been typecast.

          • Matthew Lane

            Mate those two arguments are in no way related, since both her appearances in Chuck/Alpha were bit roles. Now had she actually been in either of those shows for more then about 5 minutes screen time in total, you could use that as a basis to say “she has range” but frankly, thats not enough screen time to make that statement.

    Im sixteen and am in love lol! Summer Glau is sexy and talented, my hopes where crushed when I saw that it was Olivia Wilde playing the role in Cowboys vs. Aliens instead of Summer, I so thought it was Summer Glau when I saw the trailers. Anyways she needs to be in more movies and stuff and she needs to go out east to perform .. Love her
