Ruby Rose Makes History After Being Cast As Batwoman, The First Lesbian TV Superhero

Ruby Rose got emotional while discussing her new groundbreaking role as Batwoman for the CW.

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

Rose was concerned that when reporters asked what she had planned next she'd accidentally blurt out Batwoman "or just start crying and they'll think, 'She doesn't look so good.' But I'm so thrilled". "I kept spontaneously crying".

Rose, 32, is best known for her role as Stella Carlin in the Netflix prison drama series Orange Is The New Black.

For those who are yet to encounter the hero in any setting, you're in an enviable position. "I'm also an emotional wreck because this is a childhood dream", she wrote. "I've always had this saying, well, not me, Oscar Wilde, which is "Be yourself because everyone else is taken" and so I always lived by that motto and then the second motto is when I came into the industry was 'Be the person you needed when you were younger'". I feel like I'm probably going to do it now.

The character, DC Comics' first openly lesbian superhero, will debut on an upcoming crossover episode expected to be aired later in 2018. 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. In her Batwoman persona she patrols the streets of Gotham City, eager to fight crime and to confront her own demons.

The TV adaptation was announced in July and it's been confirmed the script is to be written by Caroline Dries.
