Fired up about re­boot

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Music -

FIRE­FLY and Seren­ity ac­tress Sum­mer Glau might have her hands full with two young chil­dren, but it will not keep her away from her Perth fans.

The sci-fi celebrity will re­turn to Aus­tralia as part of comic and gam­ing con­ven­tion Su­panova, which will be in Perth from June 22 to 24.

When Glau spoke with Com­mu­nity News in May from her Texas home, it was bed­time for her two daugh­ters Milena and Is­abou.

“My first time in Aus­tralia I had a new baby, Milena; she is the older one and she came with me,” she said.

It seems sci-fi was des­tined to be Glau’s path in the en­ter­tain­ment in­dus­try.

“I have been a sci-fi fan since I was a lit­tle girl,” she said.

“I had health prob­lems as a child; I had se­vere asthma and so I was home-schooled and we were al­ways read­ing, my sis­ters and I.

“I loved sci-fi books (and) I think it had a hand in shap­ing my imag­i­na­tion.”

Glau said she would be keen to re­visit the role that se­cured her place in con­ven­tions – the com­pas­sion­ate but lethal River Tam in short-lived cult favourite Fire­fly.

“Re­boots are huge at the mo­ment and I am of­ten asked (about this) and I have been talk­ing about it for so long, so I am sur­prised it hasn’t hap­pened yet,” she said.

Ex­plor­ing the world with her kids is a pas­sion for Sum­mer Glau.
