@RubyRose will be playing Batwoman on #Arrow, I'm beyond happy.

"I was so nervous doing the red carpet that I basically skipped everybody, because I kept, like, spontaneously crying", the Aussie actress shared. While those shows heavily feature LGBT characters, Rose, who identifies as a lesbian, will be the first openly gay hero to headline a series. "I feel like one motto led to another".

Rose talked about what the role means to her by sharing her motto since she came into the entertainment industry: "Be the person you needed when you were younger".

"I feel like the reason I kept getting so emotional is that growing up, watching TV, I never saw someone on TV that I could identify with, let alone a superhero, you know?" "I said I wouldn't do that!" I'm also an emotional wreck. because this is a childhood dream, ' she wrote on Instagram.

First introduced in 1956, Batwoman largely disappeared from continuity until 2006, when she was reintroduced and reinvented. But don't call her a hero yet.

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