Ruby Rose Gets Emotional Talking About Being Cast as Batwoman

CW's Kate Kane with Ruby Rose will be DC's first LGBTQ character to make an on-screen debut

Getting cast as The CW's Batwoman has been an intensely personal and emotional experience for actor Ruby Rose.

The Australian actress, who is starring in The Meg alongside Jason Statham, appeared on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday.

Rose will be introduced as Batwoman in a December crossover event between The CW Network's other DC Comics shows, Arrow, The Flash and Supergirl.

"I was so nervous doing the red carpet that I basically skipped everybody because I was anxious, I kept spontaneously crying, I feel like I'm probably gonna do it now", she explained, before tearing up.

Many are tipping Liverpool to be their closest challengers this season, after a a £123.6m spending spree this summer. And I want to see them win the title, but I fear it's going to be very hard for that to happen this season.

Rose has been an out lesbian since she was 12, and suffered bullying as a teenager because of her sexuality. When she did, she couldn't help but get choked up at the prospect. "I kept thinking about, "What are they going to say?' Because they always say, 'What do you have planned next?' I thought: Either I'm going put my foot in it and accidentally say something, or I'm going to just start crying". I've lived by that motto and the second motto when I came into the industry was, be the person you needed when you were younger. In a 2015 interview with Elle magazine, she said: "I definitely don't identify as any gender".

'The Bat is out of the bag and I am beyond thrilled and honored. Kate Kane's introduction in 2006's 52 remains the single-most important one DC have made this side of 2000, with the character having starred in some of the most fascinating, innovative, and compelling Batman stories of the last decade.

The character, DC Comics' first openly lesbian superhero, will debut on an upcoming crossover episode expected to be aired later in 2018. "In a city desperate for a savior, Kate must overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham's symbol of hope".
