At the Emerald City Comic Con Summer Glau confessed that she hasn’t let go of her iconic Firefly character, River Tam.
Glau said: “No I haven’t let go. I think that she was going to be captain”
Asked whether she’s heard of any talk about the sci-fi western returning in an online medium, ala Arrested Development‘s second-life on Netflix in 2013, Glau admitted that the cast still talk about it:
“Absolutely, we always talk about it. I think we offer different versions of what we think the story should do next. We all dream of [coming back], I don’t think we’ll ever give up
Glau admits that playing the traumatized River came pretty naturally to her:
“I didn’t really do any research. I just read the scenes and pretended that I was her. That was the extent of the research
