After The CW announced that Ruby Rose (Orange is the New Black) had been cast as Batwoman in the annual DC superhero crossover event, the actress took to Instagram to call the role "a childhood dream".

The Australian actress, who is starring in The Meg alongside Jason Statham, appeared on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday. 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. 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.

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".

Rose has been an out lesbian since she was 12, and suffered bullying as a teenager because of her sexuality.

As previously reported, Rose will star in The CW's adaptation of the comic book for its connected superhero universe that already includes shows like "The Flash" and "Supergirl".

"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. With Batgirl, "I felt like one motto led me to the other and I just kept crying about it". "It's an wonderful opportunity".
