Ruby Rose landed her first gig in the public eye in 2007 as a VJ for MTV Australia; a role which not only graced her with an ASTRA award for ‘favorite female’ in less than twelve months, but also the backing of an entire generation of young adults desperate for a role model that didn’t fit the mold, and definitely didn’t want to.
