Ruby Rose: Batwoman casting feels like a game changer

Ruby Rose also stars in ‘The Meg’ which is out in theaters shortly

Rose revealed on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon that she found out about her role just an hour before the premiere for her new shark movie The Meg, trying to hold back tears at the event.
