Australian actor Ruby Rose has beaten the paparazzi to the punch today, posting photos of herself in a wheelchair after undergoing a back procedure.

She said in her social media posts that she had been dealing with an unspecified spine issue for ten years, and that she wanted to head off any concerns fans might have by giving them a heads up.

Rose explained that she would have to stay active following the procedure, which would mean people will be seeing her using both a wheelchair and a cane as she recovers.

The Pitch Perfect 3 star seems to be taking it in her stride, though, thanks in part to support from her partner Jess Origliasso of the Veronicas. There’s also been an outpouring of support from her fans, obviously, including some who use wheelchairs themselves.

Behind every strong female lead is another strong female lead.
