The newest ‘Orange Is the New Black’ inmate is about to break the Internet
Australian model Ruby Rose is reportedly joining the cast for season 3.
There’s a new inmate headed for Orange Is the New Black, and she’s got an accent.
Ruby Rose, a 28-year-old out Australian model, revealed her new gig for season 3 in Elle Magazine. Netflix confirmed the casting to BuzzFeed, and the Internet is already celebrating. Rose will reportedly play Stella Carlin, an object of lust for both Piper and Alex, according to Elle. Before she checks in at Litchfield, here are five things to know about the Australian stunner.
5) She’s a model
Rose entered the modeling business thanks to a 2002 modeling competition run by Australian teen girl magazine Girlfriends. She came in second to fellow model Catherine McNeil, with whom she had a longstanding on-again, off-again relationship, including stint where they were engaged, according to reports.
4) She identifies as gay
If the above didn’t clue you in, Rose identifies as gay and came out at age 12. In addition, she identifies as gender fluid, and in a recent interview said, “I am very gender fluid and feel more like I wake up every day sort of gender neutral.”
3) She’s engaged to Roald Dahl’s granddaughter
Rose is currently engaged to marry Phoebe Dahl, granddaughter of Roald Dahl. Rose announced the engagement on Instagram last year, and wears a vial of Dahl’s blood around her neck.
2) She’s an MTV VJ
Aside from modeling, Rose is also a former MTV VJ in Australia, as well as a DJ. She’s also designed a boutique clothing line and has acted before, in 2013’s Around the Block alongside Christina Ricci and Jack Thompson.
1) She made this incredible short
