This truly is a wonderful event that occurs once a year (although Lucy fans are not limited by that which is evident by their generosity in their support of Starship and other Lucy charitable endeavours). The Feel The Love day (week) is very special. Lucy has in the past mentioned how much this means to her.

Lucy at the NZ Vs Australia Rugby Game + Message

lucyattherugbyWell lookee who showed up at the Rugby game last night between Australia and New Zealand. I will not mention the score - it wasn't pretty for Australia. Good luck to the kiwis - they need a win after the horrendous year they have had.

Here's a message from Lucy along with a pic she sent last night from the game.

I, of all people! I have been swept away with the excitement in Auckland. Here to see the mighty All Blacks play the Wallabies in semi-finals.
Game starts in 40 mins.
Go, All Blacks!!!

Congrats to the kiwis for winning the game.

TELEVISION

No Ordinary Family Season 1 will begin on 12th of October on the German tv channel Super RTL. They changed the name of the show from No Ordinary Family to My Superhero Family. Lucy is in the last 4 episodes of the season (and the show since it has been cancelled). You can find out more about Lucy's role as Mrs X on the AUSXIP Lucy Lawless No Ordinary Family subsite

Lucy's episodes are:

Image634533919327529072NO ORDINARY LOVE

Credits | Episode Stills | Screencaptures | Behind The Scenes | Video
The mysterious Mrs. X (Lucy Lawless, "Xena: Warrior Princess," "Battlestar Galactica") tasks the sexy - and dangerous - Sophie ("Battlestar Galactica's Tricia Helfer) to cause Jim and George to fall under her spell and make them do whatever she wants them to - which could place Jim's marriage in jeopardy.

Image634533920125684724NO ORDINARY FUTURE

Credits | Screencaptures | Video
After witnessing the downfall of her family upon running into space/time slit that took her into the future, Stephanie must do everything she can to alter a chain of events in the present that will expose the Powell's superpowers to the world. Meanwhile, with George's help, Jim tracks down those responsible for the death of a fellow cop; and Mrs. X tasks an unlikely person(Victoria, who she brings back to life) to keep tabs on Katie and her unborn child. Victoria poses as an OBGYN, and finds out that the trisettum serum is entirely integrated with the fetus's DNA. Daphne stops one of Jim's colleagues from shooting George, using her mind control, and this is witnessed by Jim. Due to this, both of Daphne's parents find out about her power of telepathic suggestion, and they make her erase Chris's memories of their powers. However, when she does this, she inadvertently causes him to forget about the entirety of their relationship together. Afterward, JJ comes up to an emotionally distraught Daphne and says that something weird is going on -- Mr.Litchfield hasn't been seen all day and no one knows where he is. He then hugs Daphne, who has tears in her eyes because Chris doesn't remember that she is his girlfriend.

Image634533920449953271NO ORDINARY BEGINNING

Credits | Episode Stills | Screencaptures | Video

The Powells must join together to save JJ, who's been kidnapped, courtesy of Mrs. X and forced to solve an enigma that could lead to the permanence of the trilsettum's effects. Eventually, the other Powells are captured as well while trying to save him from a secret GlobalTech facility. While they were in an elevator, Mrs. X drugged them. Steph and Daphne wake up together. JJ and Mrs. X walk in. She points a gun at Daphne, forcing JJ to tell Mrs. X how to get the serum to last permanently. Once Mrs. X finds out how, she orders the guards to shoot all of them.

George follows Victoria to a plane where Mrs. X and 80 criminals are being loaded into the plane. A guard catches George, and loads him on the plane. During the flight, the plane is deliberately set to crash, and in the ensuing events the 80 criminals survive the crash and become super villains.

Lucy Lawless and Jaime Murray in The Big Issue Interview 05 October 2011

ImageThe Big Issue interviews Jaime Murray (Gaia on Spartacus: Gods of the Arena) and goes into her acting career such as Hustle, Warehouse 13 and of course Spartacus: Gods of the Arena.

Jaime is also asked about working with Lucy and their romantic scenes together:

“You know, I wasn’t more nervous because it was a woman...” she replies before pausing. “I don’t know, maybe. Maybe it was more nerve-wracking. The fact is Lucy and I became really good friends. It sounds so weird and I [hadn’t] even thought of it until you [asked], but if I am doing a sex scene with a guy I just want to get through it.

“When I am doing a sex scene, I don’t really care if we become friends. In fact I think it can be a bit weird if we do become friends. I don’t even necessarily care about getting him to like me, [just] getting the scene done.

“With Lucy, I don’t know whether it was because she was such a great woman or whether it was because she was a woman, but I needed her to be okay. I needed us to be friends. Maybe I just inherently need to be liked more by women than I do by men so perhaps for me there was more at stake.”
