This is one of those random 'remember when that happened?' things that only lovers of Australian cinema or under-the-radar lesbian movie scenes will have noticed; back in the depths of 2013, Ruby Rose and Christina Ricci got it on on-screen...

Cast your minds back to 2013 — I know, it seems like aeons ago, doesn't it — when a semi-famous Australian model and Video DJ got her first film role. The movie was Around the Block, and that model was Ruby Rose. Some would say that it was shagging Christina Ricci that sent her career global!

Despite the serious nature of Around the Block — the movie follows Dino (Ricci) as she forms a bond with a 16-year-old Aboriginal boy during Australia's 2004 Redfern riots — it's the steamy scene between Ruby Rose and Christina Ricci that put the film on the map.

Ruby Rose's next film project after Around the Block was the ultra-sexy Break Free, a short film about the complexities of gender identity, something very close to Rose's heart.

Of course, it was her role as the seductive Stella Carlin on Netflix's Orange is the New Black that really cemented her status as an international sex symbol...
