Body Language Analysis No. 4340: Ruby Rose gets Emotional regarding her new Role as Batwoman - Nonverbal and Emotional Intelligence (VIDEO, PHOTOS)

On 7 August 2018, the CW network announced they are casting Ruby Rose as Batwoman (whose alter ego is fictional character Kate Kane). It's a role she has dreamed of acting since childhood. Shortly thereafter, Ms. Rose received harsh criticism which asserted "wasn't lesbian enough", "wasn't Jewish" (in the comic series, Kane's character is Jewish), and "lacked the acting skills" to play Batwoman. Yet, Ruby Rose came out as lesbian when she was twelve years old. Ms. Rose has quit Twitter following this backlash.

The day after CW's Batwoman series announcement, Ruby Rose was a guest on Jimmy Fallon's Tonight Show.

One particular nonverbal display during this interview is worthy of a closer look.

At 1:21 in the above video, Ruby Rose briefly looks upward as she groans. Just afterward she says, "I said I wouldn't do that". Earlier in this exchange, she spoke of her fear of and need to avoid tears.

Momentarily and forcefully gazing straight upward is a little recognized, yet quite common dynamic we all occasionally display when we are trying to keep from crying. This nonverbal mechanism is subconsciously driven. Ruby Rose's desire to suppress her tears was sincere.
