Ruby Rose Says Leaving 'Batwoman' Seemed 'Like The Right Thing To Do'

Ruby Rose is speaking out about the decision to part ways with Batwoman.

The 34-year-old actress shocked fans when she announced the news back in May, and she’s now opening up about it.

“I think what played a bigger part [in the decision], we got shut down early. We didn’t get to finish the first season, which is such a shame, especially for a first season show,” Ruby said on SiriusXM’s The Jess Cagle Show. “Um, and then we went into lockdown with COVID and thinking of in quarantine and locked down, there was a lot of thought and reflection and kind of everyone did it.”

“You know, we all kind of thought about where we’re at and, and, and so did, uh, Warner Brothers and Greg [Berlanti], and we were discussing the show and we had a conversation and, you know, I had a great time on Batwoman,” she continued. “I am so proud of what we achieved. We set out to achieve something pretty significant, you know, the first ever live action Batwoman and the first ever, you know, out gay superhero, her and Kate Kane. And I love that character and the whole experience, but we did have a discussion and we sort of mutually agreed that probably what was best for the show, um, at the time was they go in a different direction and I go in a different direction. It was tough cause it was sad cause we will love each other, but also it made sense for so many different reasons.”

Ruby add that she’s looking forward to season two and she still keeps in touch with the cast.

“And you know, I think at the end of the day, like, oh, I’m really excited to watch season two. I think the show is great,” she said. “I love the cast. I’m still in contact with everyone, but it was, it was a decision that we, we talked about, we discussed, we slept on. Um, but at the time with all that reflection, it just seemed like the right thing to do.”
