Xena Is Coming–The Sunday Mail 30 March 2014

xenaiscomingICONIC actress is headed our way.

Thirteen years after her show Xena: Warrior Princess ended, Lawless will appear at Supanova on the Gold Coast this weekend.

Since Xena finished 13 years ago, Lawless has been busy, on and off the screen.

As well as starring in Parks and Recreation and Spartacus, she was arrested in 2012 for tying herself to a Shell oildrilling ship as part of a fourday sit-in Greenpeace protest.

“We’re not destructive people and there was no selfinterest in it,” she said.

Thankfully, Lawless was only fined and is free to come and meet her Australian fans.

Supanova will be held at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre; details at supanova.com.au

Interview: Lawless On Quest For Shock Question–Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin 29 March 2014

goldcoastbulletin

The Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin has an interview with Lucy about her upcoming appearance at the Supanova Expo on the Gold Coast 4-7 April 2014

Lawless On Quest For Shock Question–
Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin 29 March 2014

by: Lisa Simmons

LUCY Lawless has issued a challenge to fans who come to meet her at the Supanova Pop Culture Expo at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre next weekend.

“Come up with a question to ask me that no one has asked me before,’’ she laughs.

“That’s my challenge to my Queensland fans.’’

Lawless, star of cult TV shows Xena Warrior Princess, Battlestar Galactica and Spartacus, remains a relative newcomer to the fan convention circuit.

“The question everybody wants an answer to is, ‘ Will there be a Xena movie?’ I wish I had the answer,’’ she says. The Kiwi actress played the butt-kicking leather-clad warrior princess for six seasons from 1995 to 2001.

“From where I stand, it becomes a case of “would you hurry up now and decide, one way or the other. Five years from now, I’ll be 50 and the idea of bringing Xena back as she was seems just a little bit bizarre – don’t you think?

“I love Xena, I really do – the character I mean, rather than my own part in it. The characters, the world they hail from, the ideals and principles Xena and (sidekick) Gabby stand for should go on.

“The thing I have learned about the fanbase is that it has a lot of heart and the people really took the show to their hearts,’’ she says.

AUSXIP Starship Auction Comes To An End and Raises $16,116!

ImageThe 2014 AUSXIP Starship Charity Auction (our 8th auction) was a total blast! What a bunch of loyal, generous souls you are. Seriously. The auction went off beautiful. It was PERFECT! Many many thanks to all those who bid and won, to those that didn't bid and to those that donated.

The auction tentative total is $16,116.71 NZD (from the auction itself and the buy it now donations).

I would like to thank the following actors who supported the auction for their willingness to sign autographs and donate their time and energies:

  • Lucy Lawless
  • Renee O'Connor
  • Adrienne Wilkinson
  • Steven Sears
  • Crystal Chappell
  • Erin Cummings
  • Manu Bennett
  • Liam McIntyre
  • Katrina Law
  • Nick Tarabay
  • Anna Hutchinsin
  • Gwendoline Taylor

A special shoutout goes to those that donated items to add to the auction!

This auction would not be possible without the support of all of you. Thank you for supporting the AUSXIP Starship Auction for another year.

Next year's auction is going to be a little different...we are going to celebrate Xena's 20th Anniversary! So the auction is moving from March to June (I know Xena started in September 1995 BUT Starship is holding their annual Spring Clean in September so I don't want it to clash with that event which should stand alone). I'll have more details about the 2015 AUSXIP Starship Auction towards the end of the year.

On behalf of the AUSXIP Starship Auction Team (Myself, Roger and Lori)...

THANK YOU!

Supanova Update: Melb Cancels Fan of the Arena Tickets & Message from Organisers

ImageThis morning I received an email from Moshtix, the ticket site for the Supanova events in Melbourne and the Gold Coast. They cancelled the Fan of the Arena tickets ($250) that featured Lucy and Manu Bennett.

Further to the cancellation, here is the latest update.

Lucy has confirmed (via her official site) that she will not be in Melbourne on Sunday 13 April but will be there on Friday (11 April) and Saturday (12 April).

The Gold Coast schedule for 4-6 April 2014 has not changed.

Manu will not be at the Melbourne or Gold Coast Supanova events and Lucy will not be at the Sunday day at the Melbourne Supanova.

--

Due to extended filming commitments, Manu Bennett will no longer be able to attend the Gold Coast and Melbourne expos.

Subsequently, Supanova have been forced to cancel the 'Fan of the Arena' and 'Middle Earth Magic' tickets, as there is no longer sufficient time to find a suitable replacement for Manu.

Customers will be refunded immediately with funds being returned to the original credit card used to purchase the tickets.

If you have any further queries please don't hesitate to contact ticket support on 1300 GET TIX (438 849) during office hours 9am - 7pm EST weekdays or visit our support page on
ticketsupport.moshtix.com.au.

Supanova Update: Change to Lucy’s Appearance for Supernova on Sunday 13 April

Image635307227126652885Here’s an update from the Supernova organisers for the Melbourne Supernova event. This only affects Sunday 13 April and not the other days:

Unfortunately Lucy Lawless will be unable to attend on Sunday (April 13th) in Melbourne. Her participation is otherwise unaffected meaning fans will still be able to see Lucy Friday nights for her Preview Nights Q&As, Saturdays including VIP Parties in both cities and Sunday on the Gold Coast.

Lucy's Q&A remains on Sunday on the Gold Coast but will now move to Saturday in Melbourne so that fans unable to make Friday night don't miss out.

Lucy In The Code: Promo Image and Info

Image635301635344344565

We’re finally getting some info/pics about the upcoming Australian mini-series (6 episodes) called The Code starring Lucy as Alex Wisham. The following is from DCDRights.com and it also contains a video (which is no accessible at the moment)

The Code (6 x 6)

Stretching from the spectacular red desert of Australia’s outback to the cool corridors of power in Canberra, The Code tells the story of two very different brothers who unearth information those at the highest levels of political power will kill to keep secret.

In the middle of the outback a stolen 4WD collides with a transport truck.  Two local kids in the car are hurt. Badly. Someone should have called for help.  But they didn’t.

They didn’t because that ‘someone’ works for a major stakeholder in an international research project no-one talks about.

The kids’ accident would have remained a mystery if it weren’t for Ned and Jesse Banks – a young internet journalist desperate for a break, and his troubled hacker brother on a strict good-behavior bond.

Ned and Jesse are gifted a poisoned chalice when a phone video of the outback accident arrives in their in-box. And posting it on-line will cost them more than they ever imagined. Together, they suddenly become the unlikeliest crusaders for democracy.

The decision to dig deeper drags the brothers into the darkest heart of politics, and the web of black marketeers and the international agencies who monitor and manipulate them.

The question is just how far those in authority will go to keep their explosive secret safe.

And just how far the two brothers will go to reveal the truth.

Starring:

Lucy Lawless as ALEX WISHAM (Spartacus, Top Of The Lake, Xena: Warrior Princess)

Adam Garcia as PERRY BENSON (Camp, Coyote Ugly, Hawthorne)

David Wenham as IAN BRADLEY (Top Of The Lake, Better Man, 300)

Aden Young as RANDALL KEATS (I Frankenstein, Rectify, East West 101)

Chelsie Preston Crayford as SOPHIE WALSH (Underbelly, The Mystery Of A Hansom Cab, Dripping In Chocolate)

Ashley Zukerman as JESSE BANKS (Terra Nova, The Pacific, Rush)

Dan Spielman as NED BANKS (Offspring, Secret Life Of Us, An Accidental Soldier)

Dan Wyllie as LYNDON JOYCE (Tangle, Underbelly, The Broken Shore)

Image635301639971492738It’s that time of year when Lucy fans celebrate Lucy’s birthday!

Check out what Sharon is organising:

We did this last year and it was a huge success!  It generated heaps of good feelings for Lucy, for the people we helped and for ourselves.  Reaching out a helping hand to our family, friends, community and the world gets those "feel good" hormones flowing.  And we sure had a flood of them last year.  So let's see what we can do this year!

In different regions the focus of the celebrations ranges from general celebration of respect, appreciation and love towards women to a celebration for women's economic, political, and social achievements.

Greenpeace has posted the following Lucy quote and photo to mark Intertnational Women’s Day:

Today is International Women's Day and in Greenpeace we have a great many totally awesome women to celebrate. Here's just a few of them.

"I've got three kids. My sole biological reason for being on this planet is to ensure that they can flourish, and they can't do that in a filthy, degraded environment. We need to stand up while we still can." - Lucy Lawless

Video: Footage from Dine and Dash Reality TV Show with Lucy

In January 2013 Lucy participated in the new Reality TV show called “Dine and Dash” and there was news and photos released at the table. Those present included Lucy, Joe Carnahan, Kate Walsh, Matthew Aaron, Common and Dermot Mulroney at Scarpetta Beverly Hills.

There was a series of tweets between the hosts and Lucy but no mention about what the dinner was about until they released the photo on their official Facebook Page to officially announce the guest list.

It seems the show has now been picked up by a UK company. See the video below. There is no sound. The clip features Lucy at the table with the other guests.

What is the show about?

Matthew Aaron (Comedian/Writer/Actor and host of the popular and cleverly named Podcast "The Matthew Aaron Show") brings his brand of ballsy, in-your-face humor and encyclopedic knowledge of films and TV to the small screen as Creator and Host of "Dine and Dash", a unique, independently-financed, multi-camera, unscripted, reality-based TV pilot which will give viewers a behind-the-scenes peek at Hollywood and fame through fun and entertaining stories told by some of today's biggest celebrities in an intimate dinner setting. The pilot will feature Aaron sitting down to dinner with 6 well-known celebrities at a local LA restaurant. They will be talking about whatever happens to be on their minds--from fame and fortune to love and politics. Whatever the topic, you are sure to be entertained - Source IMDB
