Summer Glau
Notable Works: Firefly, Serenity, Arrow

Sci-fi queen Summer Glau was born in San Antonio. Glau dreamed of being a ballerina and eventually received a scholarship for the ballet company. Because of the rigorous ballet training, Glau was home-schooled for most of her educational career. It wasn’t until she was of legal-drinking age did Glau begin acting.

Glau frequently visits her hometown and has encouraged any San Antonio fans to approach her while back home. “I'm so blessed, and, you know, over the years, I've felt really supported, and I don't want that love to go away,” Glau told San Antonio Express-News.
