* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** Before she met Creator/JossWhedon, she was almost a Power Ranger, saying she was the second choice for ''Series/PowerRangersWildForce''.[[note]]She claims as the Pink Ranger, but that season had no Pink Ranger, only white with pink highlights.[[/note]]
** She also tried out for the role of Kitty Pryde in ''Film/XMenTheLastStand''. For her audition, she recited a scene Whedon wrote for Kitty during his run on ''[[Comicbook/XMen Astonishing X-Men]]''.

* OldShame: Her first acting roles were in some commercials from the late 90s/early 00s. However, these commercials were for specific affiliates in Texas and California, promoting local businesses, thus it's very hard for anyone to find copies of these commercials. Summer has said herself, "This is a good thing."
* OneOfUs: Summer is a big fan of science-fiction movies, and is also a Creator/DCComics fan.

* DyeingForYourArt:
-->''I have a scar on my face from when I was shooting. I was at a shooting range and a shell flew back and burned my face, so [director] David Nutter let it show all through the pilot [of ''Series/TerminatorTheSarahConnorChronicles''], and if you watch you can see it all through the episode. I thought that was great because she is supposed to be human[-like].'' -- from ''[[http://www.ifmagazine.com/feature.asp?article=2293 IF Magazine]]''.
* RealLife/MeanCharacterNiceActor: Despite playing killer robots, psychopaths, and other assorted crazy characters, she is frequently described as one of the nicest people in Hollywood.

* DawsonCasting: Summer has frequently been cast as characters who are either teenagers or [[RobotGirl supposed to be teenagers]]. She is in her thirties, but can pull off the teenage appearance with almost unnerving ease.

Her first role (the aforementioned ''Angel'' guest spot) got a standing ovation from the cast and crew after recording [[OneSceneWonder her single scene of dialogue]], and critical reviews for her performance as [[Series/{{Firefly}} River]] [[Film/{{Serenity}} Tam]] and [[Series/TerminatorTheSarahConnorChronicles Cameron]] have been overwhelmingly positive. However, she has yet to get much mainstream recognition as her roles have largely been reserved to [[CultClassic TV shows and films that failed to perform on the business end]].
