Meet Orange is the New Black’s Gorgeous New Inmate: Ruby Rose

Meet Orange is the New Black's Gorgeous New Inmate: Ruby Rose

Your fiancée, Phoebe Dahl, is doing incredible things with Faircloth & Supply. Are you involved with the clothing line at all?
I don't help with designing or anything—obviously that's all her. But she runs everything through me, to point that the other day we were in the office—she has a studio downtown—and she said to me, "You should start paying rent for working here," and I was like, "Excuse me? You should start paying me by the hour for like all of my services." We were just joking—we weren't fighting, we never fight—but we run everything by each other. And then we have a brand together called Scallywags, because she always wanted to do like streetwear-type clothing as well, because the stuff she does is very feminine and Japanese oversized linen, and it's beautiful stuff, but it's not everyday. And I'm really into that world and had a clothing range, which was more of a streetwear line. So I was like why don't we team up and do a gender-neutral, unisex-type brand and make it charitable and go by everything [Phoebe] knows as far as business sense and how to give one for one so that somebody else also benefits from purchasing the item and everything I know about like streetwear and fashion and the more kind of out-there looks. And it's cool. We're releasing it in about a week. [1]

You're a model, VJ/host, DJ, and actress. What do you find is the most challenging?
I do a lot of DJ stuff, so I produce some music on the side as well, and I find that very challenging. I feel like when I was younger, like 16 or 17, I could sit on a computer for like 24 hours and not even notice and love it. And now, I think there is always that push and pull of how much time I want to spend in the office versus outside living. So producing can be really challenging, but because it's a challenge, I really like doing it. It's like fixing problems constantly. And then aside from that, definitely acting. You know, modeling it's not even a challenge at all. It's like I could do it with my eyes closed. It's actually kind of therapeutic, because I don't have to talk, I don't have to think, I can just hang out. Someone else does it all for me. They do my makeup to make me pretty, they dress me to make me look good, and there's a really talented photographer who has lit it well so you naturally look beautiful. It's almost like a foolproof job, and I've been doing it since I was like 12 or something. But acting is—I mean yes, you have amazing writers and the director is hugely involved. I mean, if you don't listen to a director then you are not a good actor, but it's really all on you. When there's like 15-20 people in the room that aren't in the actual scene behind the camera, and then you have this other actor or two actors or three actors that you are working with, and they are all incredibly talented, and you're all trying to remember your lines, but also trying to remember to feel every emotion; it's really challenging. And it's so much more new to me. I did television hosting for six years. I could pick up a microphone and interview you and I could do it for an hour without missing a beat, but acting is definitely, um, it gives me nerves and anxiety, but really good nerves and anxiety. It's like going to the gym after you haven't been in a really long time, saying I don't want to do this, I can't do that, and then you do it and you feel the best you've ever felt in your life and you're better the next day and the next day and the next day.  

So what's next?
Well I have Orange, and then I have a sci-fi coming out, and I have a lot indie films at the moment that we're sort of in talks with. And there are some great scripts going around, so hopefully I pick up a good project. Honestly, there is so much going on outside of Orange, but I'm so in the Orange world right now. But there's the clothing range with Phoebe, I'm touring the states and Europe DJ'ing. It's mental—every day is different. I'll be in the studio, and then I'll meet with a studio or casting agent, then I'll go shoot something, and then I'll do press, and then I'm flying to Spain. It's a pretty crazy life.
