The CW announced some pretty exciting news earlier this week, revealing that actress Ruby Rose will be portraying Batwoman on The CW, making her debut during the annual crossover event with her own standalone series to follow.

The CW has apparently found its Batwoman: Ruby Rose is heading to Gotham City.

"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.

Rose, 32, is best known for her role as Stella Carlin in the Netflix prison drama series Orange Is The New Black. The first, an Oscar Wilde quote, is "Be yourself, because everyone else is taken".

"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.

The American Cable Association (ACA), which represents small- and medium-sized cable companies, also cheered Tribune's decision. The breakup of the deal is a stinging defeat for Sinclair, owner of dozens of local television stations.

Ruby Rose also stars in "The Meg", which is out in cinemas shortly.

"I feel like one motto led me to the other and, you know, I kept crying about it".

"I get to be Batwoman", Rose said.

But what she's especially looking forward to is dressing up as Batwoman, meeting kids at hospitals who will very likely look up to her. "It's an wonderful opportunity", she told Fallon. Kate Kane is the second Batwoman in DC Comics' history, with the first being Kathy Kane, Bruce's aunt and Kate's mother.

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

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