One of Ruby’s most recent appearances has been in the family comedy “The Unicorn”, in which she starred as Grace Felton in all 20 episodes.

Love life, boyfriend and friends

Ruby hasn’t talked about any boys she might have dated, as she prefers to keep her personal matters to herself, but it’s rumored that she might be in a relationship with her (unnamed) high school sweetheart, as the two have been seen spending time together on multiple occasions, while some of Ruby’s fans have even claimed to have seen the two walking hand-in-hand in the streets of Los Angeles, however, Ruby hasn’t commented on the rumors.

She is a highly social person who has numerous friends, but only one best friend who can often be seen featured in her pictures on Instagram.

Ruby easily gets along with other actors and actresses, and enjoys meeting people, especially those from another continent.

Hobbies and other interests

Ruby is interested in comedy, and often uploads comedy videos onto her Instagram account and her YouTube channel, and often watches stand-up comedians perform at a comedy club close to her home.

She is a lover of animals, with donkeys being her favorites, but doesn’t have a pet because she wouldn’t have enough free time to take proper care of it.
