Film debut a ‘gift’ for reformed Rose
TV host and model Ruby Rose has turned her life around as she follows her ambition to make it on the big screen. Rose is making her feature film debut in The Block, starring Hollywood star Christina Ricci and veteran Australian actor Jack Thompson. Rose (pictured) says the role feels like a ‘‘gift’’. She decided to give up alcohol and has now now been sober for eight months, The Sunday Telegraph reports. ‘‘I’ve had so many ups and downs,’’ she says. ‘‘Now I’m 26, I’ve been working my butt off and I have tried to turn my whole life around, including my career.’’ Rose landed a gig as a VJ on MTV in 2009 and went on to win an ASTRA Award for Favourite Female Personality.
