EW interviewed Sam Raimi about Ash Vs Evil Dead and we found out more about Lucy's character (Ruby). Find out more about Lucy's new role as Ruby in Ash vs Evil Dead by going to the AUSXIP Lucy Lawless Ash vs Evil Dead Subsite
And I know Lucy Lawless is appearing in the show as Ruby. What can you tell me about her character?
She is a very mysterious character in the show. There is another character, Amanda Fisher, who is a state police detective who experienced the evil dead and her partner was possessed, and she had to murder her partner, and nobody believed her, and they're throwing her out of the force. She thinks she's losing her mind when Ruby comes upon her. And Ruby, starts to explain to her, "There's more to this world than meets the eye. There are things out there you don't understand." She sort of leads Amanda Fisher down the path of learning about the supernatural and the spirits from the Necronomicon, and that they really do exist in our world.
We're going to learn that Ruby believes Ash is responsible for -- and he is, actually -- but she thinks he's also an evil character, which he's not. She's going to hunt Ash down, and she's going to use Amanda Fisher -- this Michigan state police detective, who also has her own agenda -- to be her huntress, her woman in the field. So, for a time, she'll become Ash's adversary until she learns the truth. But then we're going to learn something else about Ruby, which might turn the tables. Don't wanna spoil that surprise for you.
