Summer Glau from Firefly – Sarah Connor Chronicles – and More – San Diego Comic Con 2012

I met Summer Glau on Friday, July 13, 2012, at the Gaslamp Quarter during the San Diego Comic Con. A friend and I were walking from the convention center and saw a large crowd of people gathering near one of the restaurants. We went to see what was going on and saw Summer signing autographs. Most celebrities, especially ones who are at San Diego during comic-con end to avoid being recognized on the streets.

Summer was different. She said that she doesn’t have much time, but still stopped and took time to talk to everyone, take pictures with people, and sign autographs for whoever wanted one.

I went up to the crowd and patiently waited for her to sign for people. Then I handed her a small pocket notepad (which I carry for these kind of occasions) and my silver sharpie. She quickly autographed one of the sheets for me, I shook her hand and thanked her for the autograph. She signed a few more autographs and went to wherever she was going with one of her friends.

It was a quick meeting, but because of her being nice and taking time for her fans, one that I will never forget. I’ve seen her in a few panels before, for Serenity and The Sarah Connor Chronicles at comic-con, but never had a chance to “meet” her, until that day.

Summer Glau is best known for her roles as the troubled and mysterious River Tam in Joss Whedon’s Firefly and Serenity, the terminator Cameron Phillips in Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Bennett Halverson in Dollhouse (also from Joss Whedon), Greta on Chuck, and appeared as herself in an episode of Big Bang Theory, she was currently seen as Skyler Adams in Alphas.
