Lucy Lawless: Trying To Keep It Real

ImageThere is a tiny bit of Lucy audio here on Hollywood Breakout site. I can't remember if this was posted around the time of the Spartacus TCA & Comic Con PR tour

Lucy Lawless, Trying to Keep It Real

LUCY LAWLASS, TV’s ever popular XENA: WARRIOR PRINCESS, is returning to the small screen in a big way. She’ll be seen as the diabolical Lucretia in the upcoming STARZ NETWORK series SPARTACUS: BLOOD AND SAND. At the recent press conference for the show, LAWLESS talked about her character and how she doesn’t see her in quite the same light that others might.

Lucy Mention - Beauty Inside & Out Summit in NZ

ImageLucy attended a luncheon in Auckland called Beauty Inside & Out Summit on Wednesday 16 December 2009 with special guest Tyra Banks.

The Herald On Sunday had a report about the event and there is a Lucy mention. There was a no photo policy at the luncheon so I doubt we will be seeing any photos other of Tyra and the officially released images which have no Lucy. It seems the organisers arranged the photo ops with Tyra with selected guests.

The Lucy mention:

"Lawless, other the other hand, did what celebrities in New Zealand rarely do: mix and mingle with non celebs. She chatted to the young people from Starship."

Lawless Promises `A Truckload Of Blood' From NZ

ImageWellington, Dec 18 NZPA - New Zealand actress Lucy Lawless says there's a "truckload of blood," in her new cable television series, Spartacus: Blood and Sand, being filmed at Auckland.

""Life was very cheap then," she said of the Roman era in which the sword-and-sandals series was set.

Lawless told the Jacksonville Observer the series was set in hard times: "You're looking for the triumph of the human spirit in a sea of degradation."

The former Xena: Warrior Princess star is working long hours on the series created by her husband, former Xena producer Rob Tapert. The show, to debut on the Starz channel in the USA next month, has Tapert, Sam Raimi and Josh Donen as executive producers.

The show stars Australian actor Andy Whitfield as the gladiator Spartacus, and Lawless as Lucretia, whose husband (John Hannah) owns a gladiator camp. That's very handy for Lucretia, who is sexually voracious and fancies gladiators.

Asked how it was to shoot steamy sex scenes with her husband wandering around nearby, Lawless said: "He doesn't wander around on those days. He's not interested in being part of that equation on set. He's in the office working - on visual effects or editing or whatever. It's not emotional, you know, these scenes. Everybody is very professional and just wants to get the job done."

When she's done for the day, she heads home to Julius, 10, and Judah, 7, her sons with Tapert.

"My kids are of an age where they've had a lot of one-on-one with mum time. Now they've got their own social lives," she said. "They know I'm coming back. They can do without me for 12 hours.

"While it wasn't part of my plan to leave America -- I was having a great life with all my wonderful friends -- it's good for the family," Lawless said.

All Hands On Deck - Message From Lucy!

Lucy has sent the following message to be spread far and wide so here it is:

Gang, All hands on Deck!

I am not as pessimistic as others. Do not lose heart. This Summit will not fail. No matter what, we are part of an irreversible shift in consciousness about our responsibility to Mother Earth. Let's keep the sign-ups happening. Send this out to everyone you know.


Love always and everywhere,
lucy L

Copenhagen's last-ditch summit to stop catastrophic global warming is failing; only massive public pressure can save it. Sign the giant petition - it may be the largest in history.

New Wallpaper - Lucretia

Created this wallpaper inspired by the new promo pictures that have been posted to the Character Promo Pages - I'm hoping to create a few for each character.


Character: Lucretia (Lucy Lawless)
Batiatus’ equal in every way, she sees every angle and manages situations with a steel grip inside a kid glove. Sexually passionate and longing for a child, she takes Crixus for her lover. She sees Spartacus as a wild animal who cost too much and will bring misfortune upon the Ludus.

Top Five Female TV Characters

There's been some godawful depictions of women on television. Luckily there's been some awesome characters that help make up for it. This list is restricted to series I've seen; I've also ruled out BBC adaptations of classic novels - otherwise it would be nothing but Elizabeth Bennett from Pride & Prejudice or Margaret Hale from North & South.

The Top Five Well-Rounded, Fleshed-Out, Properly Three-Dimensional Female Characters in Popular Television.

#4 Xena Warrior Princess

It's the shameless pick for superhero character of choice. Xena: Warrior Princess is often ridiculed for its Sapphic overtones and high camp episodes - but regular viewers know the series had bold, often epic story arcs, played out by a ballsy yet charming cast. At its centre is Lucy Lawless, undeniably brilliant as the repentant warlord on a quest to undo the wrongs of her past. Not needing Hercules' immortal parentage, or Buffy's "supernatural" powers, Xena is all-woman killing machine, highly-trained, intense, focused, deadly and above all, wise. She struggles with being "good", and the glint of joy in Lawless' eyes during fight scenes shows how much she loves to be bad. Xena's reliance on a tight group of close friends demonstrates the importance social interaction plays in helping people make good choices.

Also, she kicks a lot of ass. And I wish I could kick a lot of ass. And I imagine there'd be a fair few females who would prefer to be avenging self-reliant warriors much more than "Save me!" Disney princesses.

Sunday Star Times - Climate For Change 6 Dec 09

ImageThousands of people, eager to draw attention to climate change issues, gathered or marched in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch yesterday, calling for a good outcome from the United Nations conference in Copenhagen which starts tomorrow.

Organised as part of the Greenpeace ‘‘Sign On’’ campaign, which calls for a 40% reduction in carbon emissions by 2020, the march in Auckland was followed by a concert featuring Opshop and Don McGlashan.

Boosting the ranks in the City of Sails were Greenpeace celebrity climate ambassadors Lucy Lawless, Rhys Darby and Robyn Malcolm, who have all been vocal about the need for Prime Minister John Key to attend the United Nations climate change conference.

They were pleased that Key has done a U-turn, announcing last week that he will be joining the big-wigs of international politics in Copenhagen after months of saying he was not going to attend.

Lawless said it took a big man to change his mind. ‘‘I’m absolutely thrilled that he’s going. There’s a real groundswell of support for a 40% emissions reduction by 2020 and I’m glad he’s seeing that the people of New Zealand do care.’’

Lucy Live at the Planet A Concert - BEING UPDATED

I'm going to be updating this page as news comes through...latest updates at the top...

Lucy came back on at the end for the final song together with all the performers. She was dressed in a white shirt with her hair in pigtails.Apologies again for the is set to the highest available for the stream...Lucy did a Xena yell towards the end which was cool.


Alrighty...a recap...The song list was:

Losing My Religion
Fooled Around & Fell In Love
Delta Dawn

Lucy was AWESOME! She looked and sounded fantastic even with the choppy stream (isn't there a song about choppy streams?), loved the long dark wig, Daisy was in her Sunshine Band as one of the BV's and Lucy's voice was strong. Another great performance!

lucynzmusic094.jpgApologies for the picture quality - the streaming video wasn't very good across the ditch so  my are some screencaptures - better video and pictures to follow from around the web and other places (one hopes).




and that's the end of Lucy's time on stage!

and now GLORIA!

Fooling Around & Fell in Love followed by one of my favourites - Delta Dawn!

Lucy is singing - Losing My Religion ...looks SMASHING! The steam is CHOPPY!

Rhys Darby has announced 5,000 people marched today in Auckland and 2,000 in Wellington
Don McGleshan is performing...

The Ziln streaming video is mega choppy ...

the weather is dry but the grass is a tad overwatered...the marchers are coming in and there are HEAPS of people!

She's wearing a black wig (which may or may not be her new hair colour but it is longer than normal so it may be a wig)

The Fashion Rejects are at it again (you knew we would make another running commentary...we still don't know diddly)...okay Lucy is wearing black top, green pants, still with the black shoes...can't see them but she is wearing some.

Jo is at the concert venue and she is reporting in having watching a little of the sound check..
Lucy is performing Gloria and Fooled Around & Fell in Love!

Daisy is doing BV duties...

Stay tuned....

Betrayed by the Romans. Forced into slavery. Reborn as a Gladiator.

Torn from his homeland and the woman he loves, Spartacus is condemned to the brutal world of the arena where blood and death are primetime entertainment. But not all battles are fought upon the sands. Treachery, corruption, and the allure of sensual pleasures will constantly test Spartacus. To survive, he must become more than a man. More than a gladiator. He must become a legend.

Planet A March & Concert - No Auckland Rain?

That's the forecast! Drying out about midday (just in time for the march at 1 pm) BUT there may be a chance that this prediction is wrong (it's Auckland weather and Lucy reckons it's unpredictable :) So the following was just sent through to the Sign On Blog with a Lucy quote and a bet from Dr Salinger to Lucy (looks like one of them is going to be buying pina coladas at some point tomorrow) <g>

With just over 24 hours to go until we officially land on Planet A, there is much nervous glancing out the window and logging on to meteorological websites. That said, we're choosing to ignore the story running on Stuff: "Heavy rain predicted for Auckland" and (i never thought i'd say this) but i have also opted to shun the advice of acclaimed climate scientist and Sign On ambassador Jim Salinger. He emailed Lucy Lawless and I yesterday, asking if we had a contingency plan given the shocking state of the weather. "Don't be ridiculous Jim, no one knows anything about Auckland weather!" said the actress to the weather expert. I concurred. He asked me when i'd stopped believing in climate science....

The point being, tomorrow is the day we show the Government and the world New Zealanders care about climate change. And we give the New Zealand delegation to Copenhagen the right send off and challenge, RAIN OR SHINE.

Besides, check out the latest prediction: Fresh easterly winds. Rain and showers from early morning dying out by midday. Skies clearing to partly cloudy by mid afternoon and temperature rising to 20°C by 4 pm.

On the back of that, Salinger has issued the following pledge to Lawless: "If this forecast is wrong then I will shout pina coladas all round, otherwise the shout is on you!"

See you all tomorrow!

Lucy on NZ TV Show Good Morning 03 Dec 09


ImageLucy was on the NZ TV Show Good Morning. Actor Lucy Lawless talks about her fight for the environment;
This is such a great interview! Lucy is on fire; she's passionate about what she believes in and it comes across as such.

Lucy talks about her role as Ambassador for Sign On, why she is doing it, what it means to her. Her acting is briefly discussed at the end and touches on Xena, Battlestar Galactica and Spartacus.

It's a fantastic interview. I'll have screencaptures and downloadable video once the tape crossed the ditch but in the meantime you can catch the online version. One of the best interviews (I do love it when the interviewer lets Lucy talk and doesn't interrupt her).

Rob Interview Spartacus Mention - The West Australian

The film industry in Auckland must breathe a huge sigh of relief every time US producer Rob Tapert arrives in town.

His close links to the NZ city began in the 1990s with the making of the Hercules series and Xena: Warrior Princess and now he is back living there, having just finished making a new swords-and-sandals series, Spartacus, and with a second series of Legend of the Seeker underway.

And with long-time partner Sam Raimi he has shot a "bunch of horror movies" there over the years.

The first series of Legend of the Seeker has just begun on Fox8.

It is based on Terry Goodkind's The Sword of Truth novels and stars Australian actors Craig Horner (Blue Water High), Jessica Marais (Packed to the Rafters) and Bruce Spence (The Matrix Revolutions), along with Jay Laga'aia (Water Rats, Xena), who grew up in Auckland.

When we speak, Tapert is in Sydney on holiday with his wife Lucy Lawless, who starred in Xena and is also in Spartacus.
