Our resident Femme Fatal, Dawn reported this a few months back on the site and now it’s almost here. Stand before the master of the Whedonverse and he will gladly give you a treat this Hallow’s Eve. What am I talking about you ask? Summer Glau will finally begin her recurring role on Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse on the October 30th airing. Those of you that are fans of the Whedonverse will remember Summer from a few other shows- Angel & Firefly. She also recently was a regular on Fox’s Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles (which has since been cancelled).
As posted on Zap2It:
In “The Public Eye,” the first part of a two-part story that concludes with “The Left Hand” on Nov. 6, Glau creates the character of Bennett Halverson, who arrives at the L.A. Dollhouse from the one in Washington, D.C.
She works there as a technical whiz in charge of wiping and reprogramming the Actives.
“I see Bennett as a sensitive, creative girl,” Glau says, “who spends all of her time alone in a world of her own. She is a mad scientist who is searching for happiness. This is a challenging role in many ways. The most challenging thing is the dead arm!”
Apparently Bennett and Echo’s alter ego have a history.
“She has a vendetta against Echo,” Glau says. “She knew her back when she was Caroline, and there was this horrible accident, and she has been waiting to reunite with her for quite some time – waiting to get my revenge.
“I’m making her as creepy as it gets, but I asked Joss, ‘Can I still be sexy?’ “
“The character that she plays on ‘Dollhouse,’ ” Whedon says, “is very sweet and calm and elegant, kind of shy, kind of adorable, possibly evil, but that doesn’t matter.
“She’s a little bit damaged, because that’s what I write. She’s played her share of crazies, and I didn’t want that. I just wanted someone who was a little off-kilter and yet enormously sympathetic.”
