Ruby Rose Calls Batwoman Casting ‘A Childhood Dream’

Ruby Rose got the chance to discuss her casting as the famed DC Comics character Batwoman during an appearance on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" Wednesday.

The announcement that Ruby Rose will play Batwoman in The CW's Arrowverse was huge for fans and it turns out it was huge for Rose as well.

"I was so nervous doing the red carpet that I basically skipped everybody, because I kept, like, spontaneously crying", the Aussie actress shared. I feel like I'm probably going to do it now. And then there's the fact that Batwoman marks television's first openly gay titular superhero-and Rose herself identifies as gender fluid.

Elaborating on her state of mind, Rose - who like Batwoman's alter ego, Kate Kane, is an out lesbian - said, "I feel like the reason I kept getting so emotional is because growing up watching TV, I never saw somebody that I identified with, let alone a superhero". Rose talked about what the role means to her by sharing her motto since she came into the entertainment industry: "Be the person you needed when you were younger". "It's a really awesome opportunity, obviously".

Rose will debut as the character during the network's annual superhero crossover event in December.

The logline qualifies: 'But don't call her a hero yet.
