Hot Nerd Thursday!

Summer Glau is this week's "Hot Nerd of the Week"! This hottie has more geek cred than I can begin to explain. Known for playing the role of River Tam on the sci-fi cowboy epic "Firefly" and the same character in the follow-up movie "Serenity", this chick can play the part of super shy, or super badass in the blink of an eye. She is also amazing as the ass-kicking cyborg, Cameron, on "Terminator: The Sarah Conner Chronicles". She just completed voicework on the animated DC movie "Superman/Batman Apocalypse". In the film she is the voice of Kara El, aka Supergirl.

Her first passion was not acting, it was ballet. She was home-schooled her entire life to accommodate her ballet training. After a severe ankle injury prevented her from ballet, she moved to LA to pursue an acting career. Summer is also involved with a number of charities. She has helped raise money for the B.C. Women's Hospital and Health Center, as well as donating to the Los Angeles  SPCA . The nerd buzz on the internet is that she is also an extremely approachable person, who adores her fans, and is always happy to take a picture, or sign an autograph. It doesn't get much hotter than that.
