'Xena: Warrior Princess': This Is Lucy Lawless Today
Oh, how the 90's were so amazing. We got Friends, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Freaks and Geeks, and of course the jaw dropping Xena: Warrior Princess. What is our favorite TV heroine up to today?
Originally, "Xena" was simply a doomed side character of the show Hercules: The Legendary Journeys but once the creators saw how strongly fans reacted to her, she got her own show!
"Xena", Badass Hero Everyone Craved
"Xena" was played by New Zealand actress, Lucy Lawless. She portrayed the strong, butt-kicking, bi-sexual protagonist on the show. She fought off countless bad guys and protected the good wherever she went in the fantasy version of Ancient Greece.
After her time as drool-inducing "Xena" Lucy went on to star in countless sci-fi and fantasy shows like Battlestar Galactica and the Spartacus Series. She even had a recurring role as "Ron Swanson's" romantic interest "Diane" in the hit comedy series Parks and Recreation!
Parks And Recreation's Lucy Lawless Today
Now she has been a main cast member of Ash Vs Evil, from the Evil Dead Universe, and stars in her own show My Life Is Murder, an Australian comedy murder mystery series. She is a huge pillar in the LGBTQ+ Community, often showing her big support at events and rally's, especially because she so proudly portrayed "Xena's" sexuality when it was much less tolerated in society.
We love Lucy!
