Personal Quote:

My favorite thing about River is that she gets to be barefoot so much of the time. I don't like shoes very much. The more things I mention the more things she ends up doing, I remember in the first episode I was thinking, 'I really think River needs a gun,' and then by episode 10 she got one. I'm working my way up to captain.

Trivia:

Auditioned for the role of "Kitty Pryde" in X-Men: The Last Stand (2006) and had even asked Joss Whedon (who was writing Marvel's Astonishing X-Men comic book at the time and whose ideas contributed to the plot of X-Men: The Last Stand (2006)) for assistance in preparing for the part. Ultimately, the role went to Ellen Page. See more »
