Summer Glau played River Tam on the TV series Firefly and reprised her role as River in the movie Serenity. She was born July 24, 1981, in San Antonio, Texas.
Her first television role was on the series Angel. Joss Whedon later cast her in Firefly.
Summer plays a pivotal role in this big-screen production, and has enhanced her character with some fine-tuned skills that we did not get to see in the Firefly series.
She is simply luminous. Congratulations on an outstanding job, Summer!
Serenity was released in theaters September 30th, 2005, and released on DVD December 20th, 2005.
Firefly is also available on DVD. Why not get both right now?
