Lucy Lawless

Actor

Eight years after her TV debut on sketch show Funny Business, Lucy Lawless won global fame as the star of Xena: Warrior Princess. The series won her a devoted fan following, and invitations to guest star on everything from The Simpsons to bro' Town. Since the end of Xena's six season run, Lawless has acted in New Zealand and the United States, including as bad girl Lucretia in locally-shot series Spartacus.

I'm not really attracted to the role of a damsel in distress. It's so one-dimensional. I go for interesting roles. Lucy Lawless
