Jameela Jamil, Ruby Rose, Natasha Lyonne On How They’re Redefining The Small Screen In Glamour’s TV Issue

The October issue of Glamour magazine has nabbed three of television’s brightest stars.

Natasha Lyonne, Ruby Rose and Jameela Jamil, who are all featured in the mag’s annual’s TV issue, open up about how they’re redefining the industry.

Lyonne, who stars in Netflix’s critically acclaimed “Russian Doll”, says she has worked hard for the career she now has.

“I gave acting 35 years. That’s three decades of letting people choose me,” she explained. “Now I want to make the choices.”

And that mindset is how Lyonne got where she wants to be, “It’s been fun as a woman being in charge and stepping into the role of an elder in society that tells us so often that a woman’s sweet spot is in her 20s.”

Jamil’s career started off a little different, in fact the actress landed her role as socialite Tahani Al-Jamil on Global’s “The Good Place” with no prior acting experience. And even though she was living out her dream, Jamil says she battled imposter syndrome on set.

“I think we all suffer from it, but my way of handling it is to just not allow those thoughts in,” she explained. “I trust my instincts – but generally, I treat everyday as if it’s my last time being employed.”

She added, “So I just give it my all. And I trust the people making the show that they will fire me when the time is right.”

Jamil is also known for her outlook on body positivity, and her criticism of the Kardashians and their promotion of weight-loss teas that include laxatives.

“I don’t hate those girls,” she clarified. “I just want them to stop selling laxatives, and then I will get off that d**k. That’s all I’m trying to do.”

Rose, on the other hand, is about to debut a role of a lifetime, “Batwoman” on The CW’s upcoming series. But as she steps into her new role, Rose says she’s tired of labels but understands the power of being queer.

Rose’s Kate Kane, a.k.a. Batwoman, is a proud gay woman.

“[Kate] being gay, it’s definitely part of who she is, and it’s definitely part of the story and establishing why she’s not in the military anymore,” she explained. “But the show is not about a gay superhero. It’s about a superhero.”

The fourth and final season of “The Good Place” returns Thursday, Sept. 26 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Global. “Batwoman” premieres Sunday, Oct. 6 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Showcase.
