After a series of backlash for her casting as the character Batwoman, Australian actress Ruby Rose has announced her departure from the hit television show. Fans were shocked by Rose’s casting, and some were even quick to point out that the role should have gone to a lesbian actress. The actress even deleted her Twitter profile, but remains active on Instagram. Last year, she revealed that she had been injured on the set of Batwoman. In the post, she explains her decision to quit the role.
Rose has since denied this. However, there is evidence that she was fired after accusing her former co-star Dougray Scott of misconduct on the set. Rose claims that Scott, who played Rose’s father, was abusive to crew members and hurt a stunt double. While Rose has denied the allegations, other sources insist that Rose was allegedly fired, not the other way around. Regardless, Rose’s departure from the show is a sour taste for her fans and is the perfect reason to distance herself from it.
Warner Bros. Television, the studio behind the hit CW series, has responded to Ruby Rose’s explosive claims. Rose named several Warner Bros. executives, Dougray Scott, and Camrus Johnson, as being responsible for her exit. Rose has also shared videos of her rehabilitation from the injury, which she says was “the root cause of her dissatisfaction with the project.”
The actress also revealed that she had to undergo emergency neck surgery after a stunt scene that nearly severed her spinal cord. It’s unknown whether Rose quit the show as a result of the stunt. She also cited the difficulties of filming the series after the coronavirus lockdown in May. Although Rose is no longer a superhero, she is still very proud of her Batwoman role. There are still plenty of things left to discover about the actress’ motivation for quitting Batwoman.
Although Rose revealed that she left the show abruptly last year, there are many reasons behind her decision. Some of the reasons include her intense work schedule and the inability to rest after long days on the set. Another reason for Rose’s departure, however, is that she didn’t want to participate in the role again. But she also made clear that she has no interest in participating in the role again. This new cast will take over the role of Batwoman in the second season.
