HAWAII FIVE-0: Genre Favorite Actress Summer Glau to Guest Star

By  | 


Ever since her debut in the cult favorite series Firefly, actress Summer Glau has made a name for herself in the sci-fi world, appearing in the follow-up film Serenity and her roles in not only the short-lived series The Cape but also Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles as well as guest appearances in episodes of Alphas, Dollhouse, Chuck and The 4400 [among others].

Now news comes down (first posted at Twitter by actor Daniel Dae Kim) that Glau will be making a guest appearance on the CBS reboot of Hawaii Five-0, playing a woman involved with an underground fighting ring who also happens to be searching for the person who murdered her father.

As of right now, her episode is tentatively set to air this spring. [Source: TV Line]

    I’m very glad that Summer Glau is landing roles in non science fiction tv shows.

    It’s true that she has build her reputation in iconic roles in sci-fi series such as Firefly or Terminator: The Sarah Connor chronicles, or her recent recurring role on Alphas. However, she’s a multi-faceted actress who has proven in the past that she can play a multitude of ages and she’s a talented actress who deserves recognition outside of the sci-fi niche.

    I’m looking forward to see her in H50!
