Actress Ruby Rose appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to discuss her new role as Batwoman on the CW, with Rose explaining it's part she's waited for her whole life.
“I feel like the reason I kept getting so emotional is because, growing up watching TV, I never saw somebody on TV that I could identify with, let alone a superhero,” Rose said, explaining that since the casting she’s been tearing up when she talks about it. "I've always had this saying — well, not me, Oscar Wilde — but same thing. Which is, 'be yourself because everyone else is taken.' So I always live by that motto, and my second motto when I came into the industry is, 'be the person you needed when you were younger.' And I feel like one motto led me to the other and I just kept crying about it."
Here's the video of the full interview:
Rose will debut as Batwoman in this year's DC-CW crossover before spinning off into a solo pilot and potential series.
