Ruby Rose Gets Wet

The Fluid Actress Goes Deep in The Meg

BY: Claire Connors

Action Thrillers have a new staple: our favorite gender fluid actor, Ruby Rose. Ever since making her heart-stopping debut in the third season of Orange Is the New Black playing the devious Stella Carlin, the tough beauty has been appearing in manly films such as John Wick: Chapter 2 and xXx: Return of Xander Cage. It’s a perfect fit!

Ruby first caught our attention with her amazing short film, Break Free. Looking like a typical Hollywood starlet, all blonde, leggy, and over-the-top with her fake feminine appearance, she slowly transitions into an androgynous creature. Stripping off the girly costume, Ruby emerges wearing a slick suit over her many tattoos. Guess which is sexier?

This summer, Ruby is kicking ass in The Meg, an underwater action flick about a prehistoric shark with a vendetta against a deep-sea submersible carrying lots of scared humans onboard. The leader, played by action movie regular, Jason Statham, has his work cut out for him as he tries to save his ship and bring down the gigantic Megaladon, a 75-foot long ancient shark. Ruby plays Jaxx Herd, a cool but understandably nervous member of the ship’s crew.

Next up for the Australian actor? More action, naturally. She’s currently filming John Wick 3: Parabellum with Keanu Reeves in New York City, expected to be released May 17, 2019. See below for more on that successful franchise.

And don’t miss The Meg when it attacks the box office on August 10th.
