Ruby Rose has revealed on Instagram that she underwent emergency neck surgery a few months ago. The 33-year-old star was injured while doing a stunt for her upcoming show Batwoman and risked becoming paralyzed.
Rose posted the graphic video of her surgery on social media. She explained in her caption, “Well that was fun To everyone asking about my new Pez dispenser scar on my neck… A couple of months ago I was told I needed an emergency surgery or I was risking becoming paralyzed.”
Warning: The following video might contain disturbing content.
She further added, “I had herniated two discs doing stunts, and they were close to severing my spinal chord. I was in chronic pain and yet couldn’t feel my arms… Thank you Dr Bray for everything you did and for allowing me to keep working and doing what I love. I am forever in your debt.”
The Orange Is the New Black actress also jokingly revealed her reason for recording a video during surgery. “And to anyone asking why I let them video it,” she wrote. “Did you not watch that Greys anatomy episode where they left a towel in a patient?? Also I wanted to see what happens when we go under.”
Furthermore, after her announcement, the actress was spotted on the streets of New York City rocking the scar on her neck.
The Pitch Perfect star will be starring as Batwoman on CW. Ruby Rose’s Batwoman will be CW’s first out lesbian superhero and the actress believes her character will “change people’s lives”.
Rose will star as Kate Kane, Bruce Wayne’s cousin in the upcoming television series.
Batwoman will premiere on 6 October on The CW.
