Ruby Rose is “thrilled” to be returning home to Australia after a decade in Los Angeles.
The 37-year-old actress has confirmed that she’s headed to Melbourne to star in her first ever play, ‘2:22 A Ghost Story’.
Looking forward to the production – which opens on July 25 at Her Majesty’s Theatre in Melbourne – Ruby told The Herald Sun newspaper: “I’m very excited. I’ve always wanted to do theatre, and this is my first play.”
Ruby explained that she’s fulfilling a long-held ambition by starring in a stage production.
The actress – whose previous credits include the TV series ‘Batwoman’ and 2016’s ‘Resident Evil: The Final Chapter’ – is excited to play the part of Lauren.
Speaking about her character, Ruby said: “She’s intelligent, but also a bit of mess, which is relatable.”
Meanwhile, Ruby left ‘Batwoman’ after one season in 2020 and subsequently complained of unsafe and hostile working conditions.
The actress said on Instagram at the time: “I’m going to tell the whole world what really happened on that set… I will come for you so what happened to me never happens to another person again. And so I can finally take back my life and the truth. Shame on you. (sic)”
Ruby subsequently discussed the injuries suffered by cast and crew members during production.
However, Warner Bros later denied the allegations.
The company said in a statement: “Despite the revisionist history that Ruby Rose is now sharing online aimed at the producers, the cast and crew, the network, and the studio, the truth is that Warner Bros. Television had decided not to exercise its option to engage Ruby for season two of ‘Batwoman’ based on multiple complaints about workplace behaviour that were extensively reviewed and handled privately out of respect for all concerned.”
