After news broke that Ruby Rose will play Batwoman for The CW the Aussie star appeared on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon.
“Growing up, watching TV, I never saw someone on TV that I could identify with, let alone a superhero, you know?” she said.
Revealing she was emotional whilst attending a premiere for shark film The Meg, she told Fallon the super-hero casting news reminded her of an Oscar Wilde philosophy.
“‘Be yourself because everyone else is taken,'” she told Fallon.
“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.”
Rose will make her debut as Batwoman during a crossover event between The Flash, Arrow, and Supergirl to screen on FOX8 in December.
