Ruby Rose was the initial Batwoman for the CW show. She carried her role through for the first season of the show. Rose was even part of the crossover event which was Elseworlds, and worked with Grant Gustin, Stephen Amell and Brandon Routh. However, she left the show after citing that it was an allergy and it made it very inconvenient.
Rose recently complicated the situation by posting on her Instagram story Wednesday that it were the horrible working conditions on set which made her quit. She even furthered her allegations with claims about Dougray Scott, who played Batwoman’s father.
The former Batwoman actress accused Scott of abusing women verbally, sticking to no schedule regarding his acting in the show and was a horrible presence to be around. However, Scott came forward to denounce all the accusations made against him and the show. He said that the allegations were ‘entirely made up and never happened.’
I absolutely and completely refute the defamatory and damaging claims made against me by [Ruby Rose]; they are entirely made up and never happened. As Warner Bros. Television has stated, they decided not to exercise the option to engage Ruby for Season 2… based on multiple complaints about her workplace behavior.
Camrus Johnson, who is another actor on the show, confirmed that she was fired from the show. It’s unclear whether she is rightful in her accusation, but she is facing retaliation for her claims.
