‘It was getting worse and worse’: Ruby Rose finally reveals the real reason that she quit The CW’s Batwoman

Ruby Rose has finally revealed the real reason that she quit The CW’s Batwoman.

The Australian actress made headlines last year when she quit the superhero series after just one season.

Speaking to The Kyle and Jackie O Show on Tuesday, the 35-year-old said that it was the latex costume she had to wear for the role that forced her to quit.

‘I did find out that I was allergic to latex… and unfortunately my mask is latex,’ she said.

‘I was like, “I’m a little itchy!” And it was getting worse and worse, because as you get more contact with it, I guess you get more reactions,’ she explained.

‘I took [it] off at the end and my whole face was just hives.’

Ruby was eventually replaced by British actress Wallis Day on the series.

The 26-year-old seemed excited about the gig as she posted a news report about her casting on Instagram in March with the caption: ‘Super excited to finally announce I’m joining the cast of Batwoman.

‘I’m sure you can imagine how much this means to me and how incredible it’s been working on the show so far.

‘It’s a huge responsibility stepping into the shoes of a character that’s already been established and it’s a journey I’m looking forward to being a part of and hoping you guys do too,’ Day wrote in her caption.

‘Everyone’s made me feel so welcome and it’s amazing being back home with my DC family.’

During the first season of the show, Kate became the vigilante Batwoman in Gotham City, but the character ended the run of episodes missing, presumed dead, after a plane crash.

The second season saw Javicia Leslie be the first Black actress to play Batwoman on screen after her character, Ryan Wilder, found the famous suit within the wreckage of the plane crash.  

Ruby opened up about her decision to leave the show – where she played cousin of Bruce Wayne, Kate Kane – in October 2020, telling Sirius XM’s The Jess Cagle Show that both a back injury and the COVID-19 pandemic made it seem ‘like the right thing to do.’

Rose previously revealed last September that she underwent surgery, after herniating two discs while performing stunts.

Upon her departure in May 2020, Rose told The Hollywood Reporter: ‘I have made the very difficult decision to not return to Batwoman next season.

‘This was not a decision I made lightly as I have the utmost respect for the cast, crew and everyone involved with the show in both Vancouver and in Los Angeles.’
