Batwoman, Ruby Rose’s Role in a New CW Series
Ipinahayag ng CW noong Martes na pinili nila si Rose upang gumanap ng Batwoman sa darating na serye na magtatampok ng unang lesbian superhero sa isang lead role.
Ang 32-taong-gulang na aktor ay nakumpirma sa Instagram, sinasabing, "The Bat is out of the bag and I am beyond thrilled and honored."
"I’m also an emotional wreck.. because this is a childhood dream," she continued. "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. Thank you everyone. Thank you god."
Noong 2015, matapos ang kanyang breakout role na Stella Carlin sa Orange ng Netflix ay ang Bagong Black, si Rose ay nagsalita tungkol sa pagkilala bilang fluid sa kasarian.
"Gender fluidity is not really feeling like you're at one end of the spectrum or the other," she told. "For the most part, I definitely don't identify as any gender. I'm not a guy; I don't really feel like a woman, but obviously I was born one. So, I'm somewhere in the middle, which – in my perfect imagination – is like having the best of both sexes. I have a lot of characteristics that would normally be present in a guy and then less that would be present in a woman. But then sometimes I'll put on a skirt – like today."
Sa komiks, si Batwoman ay muling ipinakita bilang isang Jewish lesbian noong 2006, matapos ang mahabang pahinga. Siya ang unang kailanman lesbian superhero title na DC character.
Noong Disyembre, ang Batwoman ay naka-iskedyul na tumawid sa Arrowverse, at ang Rose-led series ay nakatakda upang ilunsad sa 2019.
