Batwoman crew member looks back on Ruby Rose and calls former star a dictator
Another person associated with The CW’s Batwoman speaks out against Ruby Rose.
Alexander J. Baxter, who worked on Batwoman Season 1 released a statement exclusively to CBR to detail his experience working with Rose.
Rose raised allegations of a toxic set this week, and Baxter said there were various issues on the set, but it was thanks to Ruby.
Baxter detailed other shows he worked on in the statement and said the Batwoman scoring work was a highlight.
He called the professional and fantastic production company, but said the problems started on day one with Rose.
“Then came Ruby Rose,” the statement read.
“From day one, where her alleged injury kept her from doing 60% of her job, she started her first day on the show without recognizing a single member of the team besides anyone above the ground. line.”
Alexander claimed that Rose was late “most of the time” and did not know her lines.
Additionally, she did not interact with anyone below the line, the statement said.
“It was like we were under his boots.”
Alexander detailed an incident in which production assistants set up a green room that included six heaters and snacks.
This would be a request from Ruby as “she was used to hot Australian weather”.
The star reportedly laughed, said she was “good” and walked away.
Another alleged incident involved that Alexander was holding a door for the main star, only for her to spill her food and look up at Alexander and say, “Well?”
The former star of Kate Kane would have fled and let him “clean up his mess.”
Alexander said that Ruby, who was working, constantly cleaned up his mess without mercy.
“She only made requests that drained us all emotionally and physically.”
“She was a dictator to work for, and having been just a production assistant eager to enter the industry, she made me consider resigning.”
There is a lot more information about the statement, which you can read here.
Ruby officially left Batwoman last year at the end of the first season.
At the time, it was a mutual decision between Ruby and the producers.
This week, Ruby took to social media to say she “was going to tell the whole world what really happened to me on this set.”
“I will come for you so that what happened to me never happens to another person again. And so that I can finally take back my life and the truth. Shame on you,” she said.
The star then called Peter Roth, who worked for WBTV.
“I don’t know if you left after being promoted to the top position because you just couldn’t stop smoothing your pants, around your crotch while you were still wearing said pants or if you left after putting a private investigator on me who shot you as soon as the report didn’t match your story, anyway, ”Rose wrote.
“When it comes to you, there is already an army waiting for you.”
The actress also accused Roth of forcing her back to work just days after the operation, saying she was guilty that “the whole cast and crew would be fired and I would drop everything. the world ”, and that“ I just lost the millions of studios.
Rose claimed she had only visited the set a handful of times and tried to rush production of Batwoman Season 1 as other shows were shut down due to the pandemic.
“Caroline Dries may have visited the set 4 times a year – UNHEARD OF. But in those 4-5 visits, she decided she could tell me that she knew my injury had happened on set, so I had to comply with the PI, but later she did. totally denied and said it happened during yoga lol, i don’t even do yoga, “Rose alleged.
“And now someone will never walk again. We closed the next day – not because she nearly killed someone, but the government pulled her out.”
Rose also said that Dougray Scott, who played his onscreen father on the show, was “unprofessional” and left the set when he wanted to.
Warner Bros was quick to hit back at the allegations with the following statement:
“Despite the revisionist story that Ruby Rose now shares online for producers, cast and crew, the network and the Studio, the truth is that Warner Bros. Television had decided not to exercise its option. to hire Ruby for season two of ‘Batwoman’ based on multiple complaints about workplace behavior that have been widely reviewed and dealt with in private out of respect for all concerned. ”
