During the AUSXIP Interview, Lucy was asked about working with Rob:
Any plans to work
with Rob [Rob Tapert] again? You
have hinted about it in the past? What kind of projects would the two of you
like to do together?
Yes, one day. At the moment our
careers are diverging but that's healthy. Our relationship would fall apart if
we depended on the other to make our projects happen.

At the recent Talking Xena interview with Rob, he was asked about the
90. What is up with "Welcome to the pleasure Dome" ? are you still going to do

What is up with that is right. I hope to be able
to say in January.

The following is from
York convention report
I think she was repeating a question when she said, "Does Art imitate life or
is it the other way around?" In answer, she brought up "Pleasure Dome", Rob's
new picture about an aging diva. "I'm kind of living that at the moment." Now
due to my rushed handwriting, I'm not sure if the next thing she said was "I
have to watch myself" or "I have to water myself." It seems it should be "watch"
but sometimes Lucy does have some unusual turns of phrases. I think she said
next that she seldom has that feeling. "I'm too busy. I gotta pick the kids up

raunchy role in camp caper

Kiwi actress and gay icon Lucy Lawless is preparing to star in a raunchy
and "high camp" film set in New York.
Insiders say the script for Welcome to the Pleasure Dome is the hottest
seen in New Zealand for some time. Set in a nightclub, the sexy and edgy
storyline delves into issues of betrayal.
It is understood money for the project is still being sought.
Lawless's publicist, Mike Liotta of True Public Relations in Los
Angeles, said the Xena star's new television commitments would not
affect the film project.
Lawless returned to New Zealand last month to promote her World Vision
documentary Five Days in Bangladesh.
