In a new interview with Matt Webb Mitovich at FANCAST.com, Summer Glau talks a little bit about her new role in The Cape:
“It’s a cop drama with a lot of other fun, exciting elements to it,” she tells Fancast. “It’s about Palm City, which is run rampant with crime, so the city is thinking about hiring a private corporation to take over the police. There’s a cop (played by David Lyons) that gets framed for causing these crimes, so he goes into hiding to figure out a way to expose the truth. In exile, he gets trained by this band of thieves on how to be The Cape. I play a blogger who seems to have a lot of inside information on what goes on with these crimes.”
As for her character’s interaction with The Cape, Glau reveals that they don’t get along in the beginning, but she turns out to be his best ally. “She shares his passion to stop this crime wave,” she says, and she also shares that her character gets to kick butt. “I got to do a lot of action, and I had a blast doing it,” she says.
