her casting shocked me in a good way she's probably in the top 5-10 highest level known casting of any of the DC shows

Acting- can't really say. i've only seen her in john wick 2 & the last xXx movie
don't remember her performances really well, but do remember not having a problem with either one. Not only is she is one of the breakouts of OITNB so she must do something right but, this is also the cw in all brutal honesty the bar ain't terribly high.

hair- like has been said before can be kept or easily changed
tats- same as hair

accent- why does she HAVE to be American? why can't she be Australian?
if they can change a gender, race, or even an entire backstory of a character from comics to TV/Movie changing a nationality is nothing

All they need is a line that she was Australian special forces & got a private job in America & never left. & the accent may even help her with her acting since she wouldn't have to worry about keeping up the accent.
they could even use her as a nod or even loose connection to Slade

Ruby Rose was on The Tonight Show last night, and described how she was basically born for this part, her mom actually having kept bats when she was a kid.

Kate Kane is Bruce Wayne's cousin who's american so she's probably going to be american too.

Not necessarily. Things in the Arrowverse don't always follow the comics. Speedy was never Oliver's sister. J'onn J'onnz never took the appearance of Hank Henshaw. Eobard Thawne never took the identity of Harrison Wells.

Eh, she wasn't exactly a breakout star and only appeared for a few episodes in the second season of OITNB. Her action star stuff is top notch, though. I'm a little wary of her carrying the emotional weight of the hero outside action scenes given what I've seen of her though.

hair- like has been said before can be kept or easily changed

The hair would likely be changed regardless, and Batwoman wears a wig anyway. The tattoos will most likely be covered up like pretty much everyone else who has tattoos on television.

If Liv Moore has to be American, so does Kate Kane. Really though, it's that it'll be an American comic book show and thus audiences expect it of their heroes to be American. Plus it'd be kind of a huge cop out to cut the Batman connection just to make up for Ruby's inability to do a believable accent and make her randomly Australian.

She was a breakout because a lot of OITNB lesbian/bisexual fanbase wanted to have sex with her thatís it. It was Ďt because of the acting or character.

Ughh, I can't stand Ruby Rose, I'm not really educated on the character but my interest has plummeted in it now. I haven't seen anything where I've enjoyed Ruby Rose's performance.

I have no opinion on her casting. Hell the only Ruby Rose I even knew before the reveal was from RWBY. I read the reveal and I thought "wait, there is an actual person named Ruby Rose?"

Ruby deactivates Twitter account and disables Instagram comments following abuse from people who apparently never bothered to research the character.

This nonsense is really getting out of hand. What happened to someone playing a role because they're an actor? Who cares who they are in their personal life? It's all make believe anyway. As long as they can play the character convincingly I don't see the problem.

Here's one twitter protester who says it's not about Batwoman being portrayed by a lesbian actress...it's about Ruby not being able to act

Is she wrong?

I'm genuinely asking. I've seen absolutely nothing she's been in, but I have seen similar statements as to her acting here already. Just not quite so severe, haha.

To be fair, not a lot of the CW heroes are renowned for their steller acting ability

From what I understand it has nothing to do with comic fans. It's people complaining that they didn't pick an unknown lesbian actress to play Batwoman.

Which is why I would be willing to give this a chance if I had ever seen anything with her in it. As it stands, I haven't so it makes it easier.

Besides, actors can grow, or even had it all along, but were hampered by poor scripts and/or bad directing. I've never seen a Shailene Woody film before, but apprentally she's good in those, which is amazing because out of dozens of actors on the Secret Life of the American Teenager, she's seemed to be the utter worst.

Some people are natural actors some aren't some have to work taking different roles till they get better. I always give bad actors a chance as they get more roles hoping they will improve. I honestly don't care they cast Ruby in this. Pretty high profile for a CW show but whatever just shows you the network is growing.
