Ruby Rose Calls Batwoman Casting'A Childhood Dream

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

A new masked vigilante is making her way to the CW.

The Australian actress gained stardom when she was cast in season three of Netflix's "Orange is the New Black".

@RubyRose will be playing Batwoman on #Arrow, I'm beyond happy. 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.

"I feel like the reason I kept getting so emotional is because, growing up watching TV, I never saw somebody on TV that I could identify with, let alone a superhero", Rose said, explaining that since the casting she's been tearing up when she talks about it.

Ruby Rose has won the role of a lifetime. "I feel like one motto led to another".

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. And then there's the fact that Batwoman marks television's first openly gay titular superhero-and Rose herself identifies as gender fluid. She told Fallon that she is looking forward to visiting kids in hospitals to empower them that they, too, can be superheroes. "It's a really unbelievable opportunity, obviously".

Batwoman, originally a love interest for Batman, was reintroduced in 2006 as a Jewish lesbian character. Kate Kane is the second Batwoman in DC Comics' history, with the first being Kathy Kane, Bruce's aunt and Kate's mother.

Batwoman will debut on the small screen in December in a crossover with the universe of The Arrow, which is home to characters like "Supergirl", "Flash" and, of course, "Arrow".

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