Summer Glau's Height
5ft 5.5in (166 cm)
American Actress best known for playing River Tam on sci-fi series Firefly. She has also appeared in Dollhouse and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. These photos are from Starfury Conventions T1 event. Jenny and myself had just under an inch Adidas sneakers, whilst Summer was wearing a cowboy boot in the single shot and then in the double shot a sandal a bit thinner than our footwear.

Looks flat 5ft5. She's a tad under 5ft6 even with 0.75" more footwear than Rob.

Her neck looks quite long. Pretty woman. As listed.

Hard to believe she's this "tall". Anything I've seen her in makes her look around 5' 2".

How much do you think she weighs? 115 pounds? 120 pounds?
[Editor Rob: she is pretty slim up close, I would have said anywhere around 117-122 range]

This picture is a good example of the "Karthieser effect", where you magically look 3-4cm taller than a legit. 5ft8 Jenny, lol. And had too look her up. It's "Whedon" weekend on sci, Fitefly and Dollhouse marathons. Strange that 2 of his shows got canceled so fast...

looks like a slight angled shot where Rob gets an extra couple of inches versus Jenny. But damn, never though Summer Glau looked this good. Always thought she was attractive, but I guess her acting always made me not think she was that attractive.

Rob has about 4" on Summer and 2" on Jenny in the double shot, a really big difference. Jenny looks here 5'8" in comparison but not Rob. Why are you so tall here when you are both supposed to be same height? How did you magically gain 2 inches?
[Editor Rob: a looser stance I think]

Why does Jenny look so much shorter than Rob in the double pic?

I know the cast picture you're talking about and all the actors are photoshoped together, so their heights are completely fudged. You can tell because everyone's heights are mixed up. Taller people are shorter and shorter people taller.

I would say about 5'6 at least. There are pics of with Morena who is listed here as 5'8 and they are both wearing flats. She is only about 1 inch and a half shorter than Morena.

they actually called her "little one" in serenity, probably because shes fairly little.. if she was 5'8 especially in thoes bigass boots she wore the whole movie..wouldnt they have called her "surprisingly tall for a girl, one" and that barely made sense, so you know its got to be true!

I just saw a cast photo for Serenity. Summer is noticably the shortest cast member. Jewel Staite is 5'6", and Summer is a couple of inches shorter than her. I could now easily believe that Summer is 5'3" or 5'4", maybe even 5'5" at the tallest, but no way is she 5'8".

Serenity co-star Nathan Fillion is reported to be 6'1". In pictures of Summer standing next to him with 3" heels on, she's still only comes up to his eyebrows, appearing a good 4 inches shorter. My guess would have been 5'6" based on photographs, so 5'5" seems much more believanle than 5'8".
And Summer's official website is mantained by fans, nit by her personally.

Actually, it says on her official website that she's 5'8". I saw her in person recently, and that seems about right.
