After winning over US audiences with her ~Stella-r~ (haha, get it?) performance in Orange Is The New Black, Ruby Rose is bringing her bad-ass attitude and Aussie accent to the big screen.

The model-turned-DJ-turned-actress stars alongside Vin Diesel in the new xXx movie where she plays a gun-toting femme fatale. In the trailer released this week, Rose is seen brandishing a host of weapons and rocking a fierce blue pixie cut.

Leaning over what appears to be a sniper rifle, she ends the teaser by saying, “Guns, girls, global domination, Xander Cage is back.”

Diesel is returning to the franchise’s lead role after starring in the original movie in 2002. He and Rose are also joined by Nina Dobrev and Samuel L. Jackson

Earlier this year, Rose reflected on her time working with Diesel, writing on Instagram that she grew up watching him in xXx and Fast and the Furious.

"First I imagined what it would be like to be him, As I got older I wondered how it would be to work with him," she says. "He was the hero and anti-hero in one. He protected people but unlike other secret agents on the screen - I related to Vin."

"I never dreamed I'd step into a role from a movie I grew up watching, with a guy I idolised who I probably had a poster of on my wall."
