Australian Model Ruby Rose to Join ‘Orange Is the New Black’

The DJ and LGBT activist will join the ladies of Litchfield Penitentiary on Season 3 of the Netflix series

“Orange Is the New Black” characters Piper Chapman and Alex Vause may fight over something new on Season 3.

Australian DJ and model Ruby Rose broke the news on her official Facebook page that she’ll be joining the cast of the hit Netflix series slated to air this summer.

“Grab yourself a copy of U.S. ELLE MAGAZINE and read about my new role on a small unheard of series called Orange Is The New Black.. ( insert sarcasm ) Haha, I am very excited and honored to be named one of the Magazines fresh faces on TV to watch in 2015,” she wrote.

Netflix also told TheWrap that Rose will portray Stella Carlin, a sarcastic inmate at Litchfield Federal Correctional Institution. Her looks catch the attention of inmates, including bickering lovers Piper (Tayler Schilling) and Alex (Laura Prepon).

Outside of her future role, Rose is a recording artist and appeared in Christina Ricci‘s 2013 film “Around the Block” about an Aboriginal boy torn between love and his family.

Last year, Fox’s “Fringe” actress Blair Brown and Mary Steenburgen, signed on for Season 3. Pablo Schreiber, who played corrections officer George Mendez aka “Pornstache,” won’t be returning. He’s signed on for HBO’s new comedy “The Brink,” TheWrap previously reported.

Radius Entertainment represents Rose.
