Ruby Rose participated in a Twelfth Night charity lecture in the first project since leaving Batwoman

After abruptly quitting CW’s Batwoman this week, Ruby Rose went back into the saddle with a new acting project.

The 34-year-old Australian star took part in a live lecture of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night on Friday, just days after it was announced that she was hanging up her bat cape for good.

Rose played the lead role, Viola, in a Zoom shot of the classic play performed as part of the Acting For a Cause series on behalf of the Entertainment Industry Foundation.

On Thursday, Ruby announced to fans on social media that she would be taking part in the digital play, a short reference to her recently departed CW show.

She wrote, “Hey guys tomorrow myself and a group of great people are doing a live lecture of Shakespeare’s ‘Twelfth Night’.”

“We raise money for a good cause. Tune in tomorrow! Plus, you can see Nicole and I again as scene partners yayyy ‘

The Nicole she referred to in the caption is actress Nicole Kang who plays Mary Hamilton on Batwoman.

Along with Ruby and Nicole, several other talents joined Shakespeare’s live stream, including Brandon Thomas Lee (son of Tommy Lee and Pamela Anderson), Maitreyi Ramakrishnan, Brando Crawford, Froy Gutierrez, Taylor Trensch, Will Roland and Ben Levi Ross.

During the recording, Ruby turned up in one of the small zoom screens that became all too common during the coronavirus pandemic.

She wore her colorful pixie cut that she had painted half blue and half pink in April. Later in the production, she put on a blonde wig.

Ruby wore a decidedly on-Shakespeare yet very chic ensemble of a black top and an unstructured black blouse with a red and orange print.

Despite having left her lead role as a caped crusader, Ruby seemed to show some love on her previous performance on the livestream.

There were not one but two bats on the wall behind her – one a small bat statue and the other a frame photo of three Batman symbols.

Earlier this week, fans were shocked when The CW announced that Rose would be leaving Batwoman.

TV line then reported Thursday that the star’s shocking exit was not her only decision, but more of a breakup.

An insider told the publication that she was troubled by the long hours a leading role demanded.

The source also says she didn’t enjoy living in Vancouver while shooting. They explained, “It was not 100 percent her decision.

“It was a break. She wasn’t happy working on the show, and did that make her enjoyable to work with? No. So everyone decided it would be in the interest of the show, and for everyone involved, if they split up. It just didn’t fit well. ‘

The shocking departure news was revealed on Tuesday, just days after the presentation of The CW in New York and five months after the network renewed Batwoman for a second season.

The CW will continue to plan for a second season as they plan to rearrange the title character Deadline.

The network also revealed last week that their series of original shows, including Batwoman, will not debut until January 2021, giving them plenty of time to find a new star.

Rose was first released as Batwoman in August 2018, when she joined The CW as part of the massive Arrowverse crossover.

Batwoman started his first season in October, with the first season including storylines in which the superhero came out as a lesbian and shared a kiss with Sophie Moore (Meagan Tandy), before the 20-episode season ended on Sunday.

“I made the very difficult decision not to return to Batwoman next season,” Rose said in a statement. “This was not a decision I made lightly, because I have the utmost respect for the cast, crew and everyone involved in the show in both Vancouver and Los Angeles.”
