After the first season as a lesbian street fighter ‘Batwoman’ it was over for the Australian. In a radio show she now told of the difficulties she had with her costume.
The Australian actress Ruby Rose, in her own words, got such a bad rash from her ‘Batwoman’ mask that she looked like ‘from a scary movie’.
‘I found out that I’m allergic to latex,’ said the 35-year-old looking back at the time she played a superhero for a season on the Australian radio show ‘The Kyle and Jackie O Show’.
Unfortunately, her mask was made of latex, said Rose. ‘It got worse and worse because the more contact you get with it, the more reactions you seem to show.’ Finally, she took off her face covering, the actress recalled. “And there was hives all over my face. My throat was totally disfigured. ‘
Rose, who had played in the TV series “Orange Is The New Black” and in films such as “John Wick: Chapter 2”, “Pitch Perfect 3”, had a surprise last year after the first “Batwoman” season announced her departure from the TV series. She later told the celebrity portal ‘Entertainment Weekly’ that she had to recover from a back operation, but the reason for her withdrawal from the role was ultimately a change of heart that she had had in lockdown-related isolation.
Batwoman is the female counterpart to Batman in the comic book universe of the DC publishing house. She is a lesbian street fighter who fights criminals in Gotham. A year ago it became known that the Augsburg-born US actress Javicia Leslie would take on the new leading role. The second ‘Batwoman’ season was broadcast between January and June of this year on the US broadcaster CW.
