Actress Ruby Rose is sharing her journey with depression, saying she’s struggled with a series of mental health issues her entire life.
The “Orange is the New Black” star documented the experience and, to some viewers’ horror, it includes graphic video of her surgery.
“To anyone asking why I let them video it..Did you not watch that Greys anatomy episode where they left a towel in a patient??” Rose joked in the video caption. “Also I wanted to see what happens when we go under.”
Rose said she herniated two discs while performing stunts a couple months ago. The injury came close to severing her spinal cord, leaving her in “chronic pain” and unable to feel her arms.
This is not the first time Rose has undergone serious surgery. Last January, Rose revealed she was wheelchair-bound after going through a back procedure for her spinal issues, according to People.
The actor and model made her debut as “Batwoman” in The CW series that premiered this month. She plays Kate Kane, a character otherwise known by her eponymous crime-fighting alter ego in the show.
