Cameron, The Sarah Connor Chronicles, River Tam, Firefly

Summer Glau has the dubious honor of being mega-asskicker on two different shows. As River Tam, her beyond-advanced prodigal skills scared the crap outta the entire Firefly crew, (even Zoe doesn’t want to face River if there’s a butcher knife lying around,) and on TSCC, she played Cameron, an uber-lethal, scary, machine sent back by John Connor to protect him and his mom, Sarah. In two very different roles, Glau managed to be equally frightening, and that is no small feat!
