Ruby Rose Wants to Be a Hero for Kids

Ruby Rose Calls Batwoman Casting'A Childhood Dream

Should the Batwoman standalone series go ahead next year, it will see Rose (who is part of the LGBTQ+ community) return to the role, operating on her own in Gotham as "a highly trained street fighter primed to snuff out the failing city's criminal resurgence", according to a previously released synopsis.

The Australian actress gained stardom when she was cast in season three of Netflix's "Orange is the New Black". The news wasn't public at the time, and Rose was anxious she was going to slip up and accidentally tell someone while walking the red carpet, because she "kept spontaneously crying" about her casting.

Visiting The Tonight Show on Wednesday, Rose said that she learned about landing the superhero role shortly before hitting the red carpet earlier this week for the megashark movie The Meg. "I have always had this saying - I mean, not me, Oscar Wilde - which is be yourself because everyone else is taken". "But I'm so thrilled". I kept thinking like what do I say, because everyone always says, 'So what have you got planned next?' And I kept thinking, either I'm going to put my foot in it and accidentally say something or I'm going to just start crying, and they're going to be like. she doesn't look so good.

"I feel like one motto led me to the other and, you know, I kept crying about it".

The character, DC Comics' first openly lesbian superhero, will debut on an upcoming crossover episode expected to be aired later in 2018. In a 2015 interview with Elle magazine, she said: "I definitely don't identify as any gender".

Batwoman, aka Kate Kane, first appeared in Detective Comics in 1956.

"But don't call her a hero yet", the press release continues.
