WATCH: Inmate Ruby Rose Sizzles in the New ‘Orange is the New Black’ Featurette
The jailhouse is a’ rockin in season three of Orange is the New Black with the addition of a fresh bunkmate for Piper Chapman.
A new teaser was released just in time for Friday’s premiere of OITNB that introduces us to inmate Stella Carlin, portrayed by Australian model Ruby Rose.
Rose blossomed into the limelight through the distasteful “lesbians who look like Justin Bieber” meme that took over social media back in 2010. Her striking features are renowned in the land down under where she is a host on MTV and the face of Maybelline NY.

Rose admitted that she feels a soulmate connection to her inmate character in a recent interview with Vanity Fair.
Physically and mannerisms-wise, we’re very similar. Stella’s very androgynous and comfortable in her skin but I have insecurities, and I get shy, nervous. Whereas Stella doesn’t really give a f*ck.
Her character will enter Lichtfield Penitentiary as yet another curveball for Piper (Taylor Schilling) and Alex (Laura Prepon) who are forced to coexist when Alex is re-admitted for breaking the terms of her parole.
Rose promises that season three of OITNB will be the “sexiest season by far” in her raspy Aussie accent featured in the provocative teaser featured above.
