Ruby Rose Calls Batwoman Casting ‘A Childhood Dream’

Ruby Rose will soon be fighting crime on TV as The CW's Batwoman, but last night she was fighting back tears talking about the role on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon".

Ruby Rose had her big break with Stella from Orange is the New Black. I found out an hour before I did the premiere for The Meg and I was so nervous during the red carpet that I basically skipped everybody, because I was anxious that. because I kept like spontaneously crying.

The actress took to social media to call the news a "childhood dream", adding, "This is something I would have died to have seen on TV when I was a young member of the LGBT community who never felt represented on TV and felt alone and different".

Australian actress Ruby Rose has admitted that being cast as the first openly gay superhero in a TV series feels like a "game changer".

Variety reports that Ruby Rose has been brought on board to play Kate Kane, Bruce Wayne's cousin who becomes a part of the Bat family and is trusted by Batman to look after Gotham when he has League business. "I've always had this saying - well, not me, Oscar Wilde - but same thing". I'm not a guy; I don't really feel like a woman, but obviously I was born one. "It's a really wonderful opportunity, obviously".

Rose had been cast as Kate Kane, better known to comic book fans as Batwoman, earlier this week to appear in this December's upcoming Arrowverse crossover. "In a city desperate for a savior, Kate must overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham's symbol of hope".

Caroline Dries, the writer renowned for her work on The Vampire Diaries and Smallville, has been tasked to script the project, which is still in development.
