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

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.
