Batwoman Star Ruby Rose’s Back Surgery Is Not For the Faint of Heart

On October 6, Batwoman will officially launch on The CW. The series was teased during last year’s Elseworlds crossover, when Batwoman made her Arrowverse debut. But just days before the series premiere, everyone is talking about Ruby Rose’s back.

The Batwoman star has revealed that she underwent emergency back surgery a few months ago to prevent paralysis. Rose also uploaded the operation video to her Instagram account. Fair warning, it’s not easy to look at. And it’s definitely not for the squeamish.

Rose’s post doesn’t address whether the operation will limit her ability to perform stunts in the future. Batwoman is a very physical role, and there’s always a certain amount of risk when the lead performs a stunt. Perhaps Rose may have to rely on her stunt double to prevent a recurrence of her injury.
