Ruby Rose To Become The First Openly Vegan Gay Female Superhero
The stunning vegan actress announced on her Instagram this week, that the bat is out of the bag, and she is thrilled to be cast as the first openly gay superhero. She is set to become Batwoman as a recurring character on the show.
“The Bat is out of the bag and I am beyond thrilled and honored. I’m also an emotional wreck.. because this is a childhood dream. 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.
Thank you everyone. Thank you god.”

“It’s a game-changer,” she said while appearing on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Wednesday. “I found out an hour before I did the premiere for [The] Meg and I was so nervous doing the red carpet that I basically skipped everybody.”
“I kept spontaneously crying and I feel like I’m probably going to do it now,” she continued. “Everyone always says, ‘So what have you got planned next?’ And I thought either I’m going to put my foot in it and accidentally say something, or I’m going to start crying.”
And Rose has a particularly special connection with the role: It turns out that when she was younger, growing up with “not a lot of money,” she would make her own toys.
“I made bat wings out of recycled cardboard boxes and I would sleep in them and run around in them and I would jump off high things,” she recalled. “I just lived in them. And now I’ll get ones that aren’t made of cardboard.”
