Ruby Rose Wants to Be a Hero for Kids

Ruby Rose Wants to Be a Hero for Kids Ruby Rose Wants to Be a Hero for Kids

The Australian actress - who came out as a lesbian at the age of 12 - has been cast as Batwoman in the new TV series and Ruby is thrilled to have been handed the opportunity.

While appearing on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to promote The Meg, Rose revealed how emotional the Arrowverse casting has left her recently. "I kept spontaneously crying".

"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", she wrote.

Rose will debut as Batwoman in this year's DC-CW crossover before spinning off into a solo pilot and potential series.

Check out the full interview above.

She has been cast as a lesbian Batwoman for TV.

As previously reported, Rose will star in The CW's adaptation of the comic book for its connected superhero universe that already includes shows like "The Flash" and "Supergirl". The first, an Oscar Wilde quote, is "Be yourself, because everyone else is taken".

Rose, 32, told Fallon she used to make bat wings and jump off "high places" when she was a child but now she will "get ones that aren't made of cardboard".

Ruby Rose had her big break with Stella from Orange is the New Black.

"It's like the third thing I thought about, not only can kids watch this growing up and relate to it and feel empowered and think they can be a superhero, but also I can go on and do these things like visiting hospitals and kids and people in need", she said.

"It's an awesome opportunity, obviously", she said. Kate Kane is the second Batwoman in DC Comics' history, with the first being Kathy Kane, Bruce's aunt and Kate's mother.

The now-traditional four-show crossover is set to air this December.
