Lena Headey, the lead in the new scifi television show “The Sarah Connor Chronicles” revealed that “Firefly/Serenity” actress Summer Glau will be one of two Terminator robots in the weekly series. She made her remarks at this weekend’s WonderCon held in San Francisco, CA.
This confirms a story we did on our Show #097 on Feb. 21, where we reported that it was looking like Summer would be in the series, and at the time we speculated that she would probably be a Terminator. This may also indicate that if the show gets picked up after the pilot is aired, she may not be returning to her role in that other popular scifi show on the USA Network, “The 4400.”
Glau will play a female Terminator named Cameron (after franchise creator James Cameron), the other Terminator is a male starring Owain Yeoman. Heady indicated that one Terminator is out to protect the Connors and the other has been sent to destroy them. She would not reveal which was good and which was the bad robot.
“We were in Albuquerque for a month. And it was very intense, because TV is crazy,” commented Heady. “I mean, it’s long days. It’s like boom, boom, boom. You don’t get any respite. But, I think it’s going to be great. I don’t know if its going to be picked up, because it’s only in pilot stage right now. But I learned to shoot many weapons and how to recognize a Terminator. So it was a good experience.”
