Ruby Rose fights back tears as she discusses Batwoman role

Getting cast as The CW's Batwoman has been an intensely personal and emotional experience for actor Ruby Rose.

While on the show to promote The Meg, Rose revealed that she got the call that she'd been cast as Kate Kane shortly before she had to head to the premiere for the new Jason Statham thriller on Monday.

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

Both Variety and Deadline report that Rose, now appearing in the giant-shark action movie The Meg, has been tapped to portray Kate Kane in both the upcoming Arrow/Flash/Supergirl crossover special and the potential Batwoman series being helmed by Caroline Dries that could air in 2019.

Check out the full interview above. She will play the first openly gay superhero lead in a television show.

Rose was concerned that when reporters asked what she had planned next she'd accidentally blurt out Batwoman "or just start crying and they'll think, 'She doesn't look so good.' But I'm so thrilled".

Actress Ruby Rose attends the U.S. premiere of 'The Meg in Los Angeles, California, on 6 August 2018. I'm also an emotional wreck. because this is a childhood dream, ' she wrote on Instagram. "It's an incredible opportunity".

But she has been openly gay in the comics since 2006 when she was reintroduced as a lesbian of Jewish descent.

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

The now-traditional four-show crossover is set to air this December.
