It’s fit­ting that Aus­tralian actress Ruby Rose got her big break in Or­ange Is the New Black’s third sea­son—a sea­son all about “faith.” “When I got the call from Or­ange,” the 29-year-old re­calls over the phone from Los An­ge­les, “I had been in Amer­ica for two years and I was like ‘I’m here!’ but no­body was lis­ten­ing. I kept think­ing ‘Do I have the drive and de­ter­mi­na­tion to do it?’ I had to deal with all that re­jec­tion again.” “Again” be­cause she had al­ready carved out a suc­cess­ful ca­reer in her na­tive coun­try as an MTV host, a model and an anti-bul­ly­ing ad­vo­cate. “But I’ve al­ways had faith in the uni­verse,” says Rose, who, BTW, spent this down­time mak­ing a short film about gen­der flu­id­ity (with which h

she iden­ti­fies). “Ev­ery time I feel like I’ve gone off track or I need to make it in the next 24 hours or else, some­thing hap­pens or shifts and I’m re­lieved of that bur­den.” And while Rose is tight-lipped about her char­ac­ter, the new ar­rival in the cell­block named “Stella,” it does seem like the uni­verse was de­liv­er­ing when it al­lowed an an­drog­y­nous Aussie to play, well, an an­drog­y­nous Aussie. “The break I was ex­pect­ing was, like, an in­ti­mate Web se­ries. I didn’t think I’d go straight to one of the big­gest shows on TV right now!”
