Batwoman star Ruby Rose took to Instagram to reveal that she was nearly paralyzed in an on-set injury in which she herniated two discs in her spine doing stunt work. She didn’t specify the project she was injured on.
“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. 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. And to anyone asking why I let them video it.. Did you not watch that Grey’s Anatomy episode where they left a towel in a patient?? Also I wanted to see what happens when we go under.”
Aside from Batwoman, Rose also filmed the upcoming movies SAS: Red Notice and The Doorman this year.
