Orange is the New Black’s Ruby Rose is putting her wedding to Phoebe Dahl on hold due to the “underestimated” success of her new character on the Netflix drama.
The 29-year-old actress – who joined season three of the hit prison drama as new Litchfield Penitentiary inmate Stella Carlin – is engaged to fashion designer Phoebe, who is the granddaughter of fmuch-loved British novelist Roald Dahl.
When asked by People how their wedding plans were going, Rose revealed: “When I booked Orange, I thought things were going to change a little bit and I’d be a little more busy, but obviously I underestimated it. I don’t think anyone knew that my character would be taken to so well.
“We want to find the time to plan the wedding, but now I think it’s going to be, like, next year. Originally it was going to be this year, but I feel like that’s a bit too ambitious.”
The star – who describes herself as gender fluid – added that she and Phoebe “love being engaged”, continuing: “I love the word ‘fiancée’. It’s actually nice that we do wait that extra year and get to enjoy being engaged before we ball-and-chain it.”
Ruby shared that the wedding would be low-key, but explained that Phoebe’s family is so huge that just organising them has held back the planning.
“I am more intimate and would totally elope with just the two of us and maybe our parents, but her whole family is like a million people! It’s important to them to have a larger-scale wedding. So it’ll be, like, five people from my life and 500 from hers.
“That’s why we haven’t planned it yet – because her family is so enormous,” she explained, “I just have to get my mum a plane ticket and a couple of friends.”
And on what she’s going to wear on the big day, Rose disclosed: “I want to do a tux, like a really nice fitted suit. Givenchy or a Tom Ford.”
The US Supreme Court has announced a historic ruling that same-sex marriage is now a legal right, with the White House changing its Twitter avatar to include the colours of the LGBT rainbow flag.
