Ruby Rose will appear in the upcoming season of Netflix's Orange is the New Black, according to Elle Magazine, reportedly playing a "lust object" of both Piper (Taylor Schilling) and Alex (Laura Prepon). Rose was named one of Elle's Fresh Faces on TV to watch in 2015.

But if you find yourself saying, "Who is Ruby Rose?" fear not. ETonline has got you covered with a crash course on OITNB's next breakout star. In her native Australia, Rose has already made a name for herself as a DJ, a model and an MTV VJ.

Last year, Rose gained global attention with the viral video "Break Free." In an interview with The Guardian, Rose said that the short film was meant to be "autobiographical." It depicts her transition from a blonde girly-girl to an androgynous badass. Watch below.

Rose has been romantically linked to The Veronicas' Jessica Origliasso (Rose has denied the rumors), model Lyndsey Anne McMillan and model Catherine McNeil. Last March, Rose revealed that she's currently engaged to marry Phoebe Dahl, granddaughter of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory author Roald Dahl.

By the looks of Rose's Instagram page, she’ll have no trouble at all fitting in at Litchfield.
