Netflix Releases First Glimpse of Ruby Rose in ‘Orange Is the New Black’, and she sounds Aussie (Video)

In a sneaky teaser, Netflix has given us a quick peek at their newest character to join Orange is the New Black.

In a fifteen-second clip, we see Australian actress, presenter and model, Ruby Rose in character as Stella Carlin in a heated conversation with Piper, played by Taylor Schilling.

This is Rose’s breakout role in the United States, and she was close to giving up the American acting dream when she scored the job.


Rose isn’t the only Aussie to be in the show, Sydney actress Yael Stone has been hiding behind the thick accent of the character Lorna Morello for the past two seasons.

Season 3 of the hit original series will be arriving on screens on June 12, via Netflix.


OITNB’s Yael Stone Talks Season 3 and Which Cast Member is the Best to Party With

Yael Stone plays Lorna Morello in Netflix’s Orange Is The New Black, which returns next month.

In hit show, she has a strong accent – a mix of Brooklyn and Boston – but in real life, Yael Stone is an Aussie.

Talking recently in an interview she opened up about the up-coming season.

We finished shooting last November so it’s been a while, but it felt good and exciting. The stories are getting richer. For the third series we’re exploring this issue of faith and what people put their faith in.”

Whilst she stayed quiet on how much of Morello we’ll be seeing in the third series she hinted there would be new inmates joining the already huge cast list.

In a loose way, there’s always joy in finding new faces in and outside the prison and we still delight in the older characters.”

The show was nominated for the International award at this year’s Baftas but lost out to True Detective.

I like our status as rebels. You can’t deny there’s an impact Netflix has made. The original content is world class and it’s a real force. It’s making things people are hungry for and we’re proud to be part of it.”

Anyone who follows the cast on Instagram or Twitter will know they like hanging out socially and for a wild night, Stone says there are a few members you need to tag along with.

I mean Samira Wiley (who plays Poussey Washington) and Dascha Polanco (who plays Dayanara “Daya” Diaz) are the ones who want to dance with. But then you’re going to have fun if you go out with Laverne Cox or Lea DeLaria (who play Sophia and Big Boo) too.”


Cast of ‘Orange Is The New Black’ Give new member Ruby Rose the nod of approval

The cast of Orange Is The New Black have given new member Ruby Rose the nod of approval.

Yael Stone who plays Morello and Uzo Aduba who plays Suzanne ‘Crazy Eyes’ are currently in Australia for the launch of Netflix and were full of praise for the Aussie model and DJ turned actor, who will play Stella Carlin in the hit US drama series.


Fellow Australian actor Stone, said the Aussie actor, who plays Stella Carlin in the hit US drama series, was “beautiful inside and out.”

“Ruby Rose is in the big house. Even in prison, she is gorgeous. The face of Maybelline is in jail!”

Rose has caused quite the sensation since news spread of her joining the popular Netflix series. Rose plays Stella, a new inmate who will just happen to be the love interest for the shows lead characters, Piper and Alex.

“She does provide a bit of spice with those pillowy lips, it’s a really exciting addition because she’s Australian. Our voices don’t really appear internationally on television unless we’re pretending to be somebody else, so it is going to be really refreshing and really nice to see that story with that different flavour from an Australian perspective.”

Rose, a model, television presenter and DJ, has joined the third season of the popular US prison drama, which airs on Netflix from June 12, playing Stella, an inmate who will be introduced as a romantic interest for the show’s two leads.

Aduba said of Rose:

“Ruby has done a wonderful job in joining the family. She’s beautiful, a wonderful, lovely person. Our show is family, regardless of previous credentials.”

On Thursday We Wear Purple – #SpiritDay

On Thursday 16th October, millions of Americans will wear purple on Spirit Day in a stand against bullying and to show their support for lesbian, gay bisexual and transgender (LGBT) youth.

Spirit Day began in 2010 as a way to show support for LGBT youth and take a stand against bullying. Following a string of high-profile suicide deaths of gay teens in 2010, GLAAD worked to involve millions of teachers, workplaces, celebrities, media outlets and students in going purple on social media or wearing purple, a color that symbolizes spirit on the rainbow flag. Spirit Day now occurs every year on the third Thursday in October, during National Bullying Prevention Month, and has become the most visible day of support for LGBT youth.

In recognition of this, “Orange Is The New Black” stars Selenis Leyva and Yael Stone have recorded a message encouraging people to join the thousands of people taking part in Spirit Day this year.

Also backing this cause is the cast of The Fosters and Faking It


Who would you marry, date or incarcerate from the Orange Is The New Black?

Loving this video; the Orange is the New Black stars were asked what characters they would marry, date or incarcerate. Watch this video to see the answers – I think they may have thought about this before filming. The actresses who play the inmates on the show are revealing a lot more with the game (marry, date or incarcerate).

So, would you want to walk down the aisle with Crazy Eyes or make sure she stays behind bars? Or would you be like Yael Stone, who plays Lorna Morello, and date yourself?
