Ruby Rose has finally revealed the real reason why she decided to quit Batwoman after staring in just one season of The CW show.

This was probably one of the most unexpected bits of pop culture news 2020 gave us.

It was revealed that Ruby Rose would be leaving The CW’s Batwoman after just one season on the show.

This was then followed with a host of rumours as to why she left.

People claimed that she didn’t like the long hours.

Others suggested that she wanted to star in more movies and her commitment to Batwoman meant she couldn’t do that.

Well, she’s now given an interview with Entertainment Weekly in which she revealed the real reason (according to her) she left the show.

Here’s what Ruby Rose says is the truth behind her exiting Batwoman:

Being the lead of a superhero show is tough. Being the lead in anything is tough. But I think, in that particular instance, it was a lot more difficult because I was still recovering from my surgery. I had my surgery and then 10 days later I went to work, which maybe wasn’t the best idea. Most people take about a month or three off before they return to work, so it was definitely made more difficult by that. But as far as being a lead of a show or a film — regardless if it’s action or if it’s emotional — in whichever ways it’s taxing.

It wasn’t so much [the injury], especially because after we wrapped up we didn’t get to finish the real finale because of COVID. You know, you have time in quarantine and sort of isolation to just think about a lot of different things and what you want to achieve in life and what you want to do. I think for both [me and the producers], it was a great opportunity to have a dialogue about a lot of things. I respect them so much and they’ve been so respectful to me.

So, there you have it. She left because of a back injury, and after having done some deep thinking during lockdown.
