"It keeps growing even though it's been 10 years; the fan base keeps growing. I never pictured it could grow this way so I'll never grow tired of it."

Glau most recently appeared in the thriller Sequestered and cameoed in the web series Con Man, where she reunited with much of the original Firefly cast. …
