Ruby Rose fights back tears as she discusses Batwoman role

But for some others, watching Rose gush about playing Batwoman during a recent appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon completely changed their minds.

American television network The CW has cast gender-fluid actress Ruby Rose as the DC superhero Batwoman, entertainment website Variety reported on Wednesday (Aug 8). The news wasn't public at the time, and Rose was anxious she was going to slip up and accidentally tell someone while walking the red carpet, because she "kept spontaneously crying" about her casting.

The version of Batwoman headed to TV screens is set to remain true to her comics portrayal, where Batwoman has been an out lesbian since 2006. "I kept thinking about, "What are they going to say?' Because they always say, 'What do you have planned next?' I thought: Either I'm going put my foot in it and accidentally say something, or I'm going to just start crying". Fans will get their first look at Rose's take on the character in the big Arrowverse crossover event this December on The CW.

Prolific producer Greg Berlanti - who has overseen numerous CW shows, as well as hit film Love, Simon - will executive produce the new show. They are also working on a solo series for the character. Rose even revealed two real-life connections to Batwoman: her mother kept bats inside the house - "she nursed these little pet bats back to life, but then they couldn't go anywhere because they were domesticated" - and Rose used to make batwings out of cardboard boxes and pretend to fly around the house. "It's an fantastic opportunity", she told Fallon.
