Are you currently knee-deep into your binge of "Orange Is The New Black" Season 3? Yeah, us too.

While you've been devouring the new season like a fresh batch of prison cheesecake, you may be wondering who that new character is. Viewers who are halfway through the season -- spoiler alert -- have already met Litchfield's newest inmate, Ruby Rose's Stella Carlin. Piper first meets Stella -- who is rumored to be involved in a love triangle with Piper and Alex -- while sewing lingerie, her new prison job assignment. So who is Ruby Rose after all? Here's eight things to know about her:

1. Rose is an Australian model, but doesn't really consider herself a model.
Rose scoffed when Rolling Stone called her a model in a recent interview. "'Model,'" she said. "I don't think of myself as a model. I'm genderqueer, and I've got tattoos."

2. Rose made a powerful short film about gender fluidity.
Last July, the 29-year-old made headlines when she released her short film "Break Free," which explores gender fluidity and the ways gender is performed in culture.

3. She used to be an MTV VJ in Australia.

4. She and her fiancée Phoebe Dahl are absolutely adorable.
Rose got engaged to Dahl, a designer and the granddaughter of author Roald Dahl, last year. The two have an adorable engagement story -- Dahl broke into Rose's house at 6 a.m. with flowers and proposed -- and are pretty cute on Instagram as well.

5. She's not exactly like Stella Carlin.
While speaking to Vanity Fair about her "Orange Is the New Black" character, Rose said she identifies with the inmate on a physical level. "Physically and mannerisms-wise, we’re very similar," Rose told the magazine. "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 fuck."

6. She has a sense of humor.

If you're not already following Rose on Instagram, we strongly suggest you go handle that now. Then get back to your "OITNB" binge.
