Ruby Rose Comments On BATWOMAN Casting; Says She Is "Beyond Thrilled And Honored" To Play Kate Kane

We found out earlier today that The CW had cast Ruby Rose as The Arrowverse incarnation of Batwoman, and now the Orange is the New Black actress has taken to social media to comment on the announcement...

Following today's announcement that Ruby Rose would play Kate Kane, a.k.a. Batwoman, in The CW's Arrowverse, the Aussie actress has shared an Instagram post expressing her excitement over the news.

Batwoman will be the first out lesbian superhero character to headline her own TV series, and Rose - who identifies as gender fluid - is very grateful for the opportunity to bring life to Kate on the small screen.

“I am beyond thrilled and honored. I’m also an emotional wreck, because this is a childhood dream," said Rose in her post. "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.”

Rose will make her debut as Kane in the CW's annual crossover event before going on to reprise the role in a Batwoman solo series, which is expected to air sometime next year.
