In Arrow season two, Summer Glau will play Isabel Rochev, born in Siberia.
The comic-book incarnation of Isabel Rochev is blond. Does that mean that Summer Glau should go blonde to match the look of the comic book character? Take the poll and feel free to comment below.

Why should they make Summer go blond for Arrow? They didn't do it for Oliver Queen character. If it comes down to it, some golden highlights in Summer's hair, as she's had in the past, would be more than adequate for her role on Arrow.

Let me just add, I can't wait to see season 2 of Arrow. I just hope they don't kill off Summer's character like they did with the Merlin's, father and son. If they didn't have Oliver blab his secret identity to Tommy, you could see him picking up his father's mantel at some point down the road. They had no choice but to kill off both characters. Lets hope they give Isabel Rochev character a story line with a future, even if she departs after her season 2 story arc.

Blonde? This could be interesting in its own way, but I prefer brunette Summer. It is her natural color and it fits best to her. Makers may not follow comics verbatim. But I have no doubt that she would be lovely as a blonde too.

I didn't comment on purpose because I don't want to give the feeling I influence the answer in any way.

My answers were 1) and 5)
While I would not mind, I don't think that the show will turn Summer Glau into a blonde (or they would have hired a true blonde).

As The1Russter noticed, they didn't do it for Oliver Queen character, who is quite different from the comic book character; Stephen Amell is much darker haired than the comic book character, wears a hood instead of a cap (?), doesn't wear a mask (only dark makeup around the eyes) and doesn't have a small goat. See image below:

Stephen Amell as Green Arrow and the original comic book character

Similarly, the storyline in Arrow doesn't follow completely the comic book canons.

Summer is always beautiful, blonde or brown, it doesn't change. But I do think that seeing Summer Glau with blonde hair would be very different and very interesting to see. Golden hair, that sounds not bad :-)

as i answered five, not really concerned what colour hair summer glau will have in arrow, i dont think the show producers are all that concerned, with their being so many actresses with blonde hair that they could have approached for the show, obviously they have looked at the talented and exceptional skills that summer glau, has to offer for the viewers and improve arrow beyond recognition, for further seasons and beyond,

I wondered about it myself yesterday after watching first episodes of Arrow and consider myself ninja'd Chris.

I voted five. Mainly because with Green Arrow they didn't go for it either and the show isn't exactly following every detail of the comic series or DC universe.

Also it is not about personal taste because I don't consider her beautiful (yeah... kill the heretic wink ) - quite pretty covers my opinion rather well.

Honestly I wouldn't mind if they go for blonde, though that seems unnecessary unless they really want play on the 'cold beauty', 'ice queen' idea. Going for blonde just for the sake of it is not required and might even work against the character.
Of course with the Game of Thrones turning everybody blonde... but in that series the colour of the hair has an important meaning, unlike in the Arrow.

Frankly I am more wondering about Russian accent because Mrs. Glau has a talent for accents in general, spoke Russian pretty well in TSCC and is always willing to go one more step to make her characters believable.

Unless they, as usual, take the route you are a villian = you speak British accent.
Far too many of those, besides Russians make great bad guys and this statement has nothing to do with me being Polish. I believe the line was used in a comic book I've read years ago.

While I'm sure they have hired Summer Glau for her geek cred and hopefully also for her acting skills, the choice of the hair color for a character is very important, ask any showrunner. It's a little bit different in Arrow since some of the characters are based on existing comic book characters, even if we've seen that the writers don't follow verbatim the comics.

At least Katie Cassidy - Dinah Laurel Lance in Arrow - think her hair color is important; she tweeted this today:

Katie Cassidy wonders if her character Laural Lance will go blond in Arrow

i'm wondering about that too, at one point i hope she does use a russian accent, but i also think she shouldn't, so again we'll see.
