Ruby Rose Gets Emotional Talking about Being Cast as Batwoman”

During an appearance on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, Rose revealed that she got emotional when she found out she had been cast as the superhero.

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

"I was so nervous doing the red carpet that I basically skipped everybody, because I kept, like, spontaneously crying", the Aussie actress shared.

She said: "I think the reason I kept getting so emotional was that growing up watching TV, I never saw anyone on TV that I can identify with".

"We grew up with not a lot of money, so I would make my toys and I would make bat wings out of recycled cardboard boxes and I would sleep in them and run around in them and jump off high things", she told Fallon.

Batwoman will be introduced in a December crossover event between the network's other DC Comics shows, "Arrow", "The Flash" and "Supergirl". "I said I wouldn't do that!" "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'".

It also, Rose noted, will allow her to continue her charity work of visiting children in hospitals with a whole new persona. The actress is to play Batwoman, the first lesbian superheroine in a new series scheduled for 2019.

"It's an fantastic opportunity, obviously", she said. 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.

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