Ruby Rose has been brought to tears with the announcement that she has been cast to play the role of Batwoman.

The star explained further, ''I found out an hour before I did the premier for meg.... I kept like spontaneously crying and I feel like im probably gonna do it now...
''The reason I kept getting so emotional is because, growing up watching TV I never saw someone on TV that I could identify with let alone a superhero...''
The Bat is out of the bag and I am beyond thrilled and honored. I’m also an emotional wreck.. because this is a childhood dream. This is something I would have died to have seen on TV when I was a young member of the LGBT community who never felt represented on tv and felt alone and different. Thank you everyone. Thank you god.

CW is so badass for taking on #Batwoman. Grateful to the DC comics writers for reviving this hero and giving us a fun and complicated hero who reflects so many of us. Thrilled I get to do this with Greg, Sarah, Geoff and our future Kate Kane. https://t.co/n1lGSkk586
