Summer Glau on 'Sarah Connor': More action, please!

Now that Fox has picked up 13 more episodes of The Sarah Connor Chronicles, star Summer Glau has high hopes for the new season. “I hope they make sure to keep the action level high,” Glau told at the Young Hollywood Awards in Los Angeles on April 27. “I really enjoy it and I feel very comfortable jumping around and kicking butt. I don’t want to see it become — and I think the fans would agree — some sappy, depressing drama. I think we are safe, but I figured I’d put that out there.”

“I feel like our storylines were just starting to really come together when the strike happened, and it is going to be hard to get fans back [on board] and to attract new fans,” Glau continued. “We were really building toward something, and then Bam, we had to stop. At least we had an episode filmed that was meant to be a middle episode, but it worked as a finale. So we didn’t leave people hanging in a bad spot, but you lose momentum and a level of comfort and it will be like starting all over again.”

Glau’s co-star, Thomas Dekker (John Connor), who attended the ceremony to accept a Young Hollywood award, promises the show will come back in the fall “like a proper series” and will take six months to prepare. “We are going back to shoot in June,” he said. “It is a very complicated show with lots of effects and stunts, so it takes a while to do each episode. And, of course, we are hoping that once we do those 13 they will keep us on to finish out a whole season.”

As for his character, Dekker says that “John undergoes a lot of changes in the coming episodes and season. It was intentional. Anyone who was afraid that my John was a little too weak will be pleasantly surprised in the second season. It was always the plan that I would go through a transformation and become a bad ass. I have to prove I am not a wimp and it’s going to be fun. We wanted it to start small and then make audiences go, ‘Oh s—.’” — With reporting by Carrie Bell

    That’s great John is going to toughen up. Can we lose his boy bangs, too?

  • JCHaps

    I agree, lose the emo look, bulk up a bit. Carbs never hurt.

    I agree with the first two posters – the emo bangs/guy liner thing wasn’t working for me.
    Maybe Dekker should go to the same trainer/stylist that did away with Peter Petrelli’s/Milo Ventimiglia’s emo bangs and bulked him up for the second season of “Heroes.”

    ^ Have you guys seen his photos lately? He played a cancer patient with no hair in a movie. Don’t know if he can grow it all back before SCC starts shooting again.

    Good to see Summer taking a more leading role, not to diminish Lena and John. I’m looking forard to the reruns in June and new season in September!
