Ruby Rose was introduced to the world when she appeared on season 3 of Orange Is The New Black back in 2015. Her character, Stella Carlin, may have been a terrible person, but at least Ruby was launched to the world, and now she has a big following.
But, as ever, there is more to the 31-year-old actress and model than playing nasty Stella. This is how she got started, as well as some interesting facts about her you may not have known,
1. She grew up in Melbourne, Australia
