?Interview with Lucy by The Village Voice

Lucy Lawless  -- of Xena, Warrior Princess and Spartacus -- has taken over an Artic-bound, oil-drilling ship along with several other Greenpeace activists today.

Lawless and the Greenpeace members boarded the Shell-contracted ship this morning, in hopes that their protest would keep it from leaving Auckland, New Zealand for the Alaskan coast. That vessel, the Noble Discoverer, is scheduled to drill three exploratory oil wells this summer in the Chukchi Sea off the coast of Alaska.

Runnin' Scared reached out to Lawless, who took a few minutes to chat about the demo.

Runnin' Scared: So how are you doing? It sounds kind of noisy over there...

Lawless: I'm doing good, thank you. I'm way up high and on top of the drill-bit. We're right at the top of the tower. That's the police telling us to come down and speak.

Runnin' Scared: What's it like on the boat?

Lawless: I've been on the ship since 7:30 this morning. I'm going to say I'm a bit shell shocked, but we really believe in the cause and that's why we're here. We're way high up -- 50 or 60 meters off the ground.
