River Tam
Summer Glau

Summer Glau plays the psychic but unpredictable River Tam in "Firefly."

Her first association with the Joss Whedon universe began with an appearance on the television show "Angel." She played a prima ballerina—the perfect role for her, as she’s a trained ballerina in real life.

Her recent television credits include "The 4400" and "The Unit." She also appeared in "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" and "Cold Case."

She reprised her role as River Tam in the feature film "Serenity."
