Lucy was on twitter tonight talking about going to Broken Hill to film Code.
Headed to the outback tomorrow. Learning about Aboriginal culture for my role in ABC's The Code. It's a fascinating script with incred cast— Lucy Lawless (@RealLucyLawless) September 22, 2013
Traditional Aboriginal philosophy is incredible. Not a linear concept of time. More circular. Children autonomous. Collective. @carolyn_cmg— Lucy Lawless (@RealLucyLawless) September 22, 2013

DD: Where are you off to after Dragon Con? Any upcoming projects besides your guest stints on Parks & Rec?
LL: I’m doing a mini series in Australia, a political thriller called The Code. It’s about an indigenous kid in Australia who gets himself embroiled in a horrible nuclear conspiracy. The kid is going to wear all the blame for an accident that happens that’s not much to do with him. I play his teacher in the outback who’s trying to save his ass. They’re up against something way bigger than they can comprehend.
