“Orange is the New Black” season four is about to debut in June 2016 but until now the fate of Ruby Rose’s character is still unknown.
Ruby Rose admitted to AOL that she still does not know what will happen to Stella Carlin in the upcoming season.
“Because we only get the scripts a week at a time, you never knew what’s going to happen [with your character],” the Australian actress/DJ explained.
Rose’s character, Stella, was last seen after she was betrayed by her lover, Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling), right before her supposed release from Litchfield Penitentiary. Stella was then taken to Maximum Security.
Stella and Piper became close in the previous season until Piper found out that the profits of her illegal dirty undergarments business were missing. She discovered that Stella took the money. Piper took revenge by planting contraband in Carlin’s living space.
Ruby Rose said she and her co-stars used to think that Stella would be the one to kill Laura Prepon’s character, Alex Vause, given their intense rivalry over the affections of Piper.
“We would sit and have these conspiracy theories about what was happening, and at one point we were all convinced that my character was in there to kill Laura Prepon’s character. You just don’t know until you get the next script. It was the most amazing experience of my life,” she said.
A teaser of OITNB season four was released recently and Rose, who recently broke up with fiancé Phoebe Dahl, was noticeably absent on the trailer. However, Ruby Rose may come back in season five, according to news.com.au.
Although there is still no word whether she will reprise her role or not, Rose expressed her gratitude to the Netflix hit series and to her co-stars for helping her became better in acting.
“Every single person that works on that show is so brilliantly gifted in what they do that it just rubs off on you. The quintessential thing on that show is that all of the women support each other. That’s the biggest different between that show and some other shows that are out there: It’s not a common thing for a show that has that many women – acting, directing, writing – all get along as well as the family at ‘Orange’ do,” she said.
OITNB season four will premiere on July 7, 2016 on Netflix.
