Project Casting

Ruby Rose made her first appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show last week. In the interview, the Orange is the New Black star opened up about becoming an actress and what it was like before her big break. Apparently, the actress was sleeping on a blow-up mattress with her dog on the floor.

The 30-year-old actress explained, ‘I started with a blow-up mattress from Target that I shared with my dog and now a year later, I’m on the Ellen show,’ she said.

‘Imagine not getting any work for two years and then getting to audition for the greatest show in the world,’ she said.

She was only supposed to appear in three episodes but, her performance was so great that her character was expanded to include nine full episodes.

She called working on the show as “life changing”

“[The cast and crew of OITNB] is such an amazing family unit of such supportive women, It was one of the greatest experiences of my life,” she said.
