Before joining the hit NBC comedy, Lucy spent three years working in her homeland New Zealand on the STARZ series Spartacus. Lawless' portrayal of the complex and often wicked Lucretia delighted critics and fans alike. The show broke all records for STARZ and turned the network into a top destination for original programming.
Lawless, a New Zealander, rose to international fame through her groundbreaking performance as the title character in the cult hit series Xena: Warrior Princess, also executive produced by Spartacus producers Rob Tapert and Sam Raimi. She solidified her "fan-boy cred" when she joined the critically acclaimed SyFy Channel series Battlestar Galactica.
In addition to these roles, Lucy has continued to demonstrate her versatility with a wide range of television work, both comedy and drama, in such notable projects asFlight of the Conchords, Curb Your Enthusiasm, The L Word, CSI: Miami, Burn Noticeand The X-Files.
In film, she played Aspen in Adam Sandler's Bedtime Stories, Mother Superior in the cult favorite Bitch Slap, a dominatrix in EuroTrip, and had cameos in Raimi's Spider Man, and Tapert's Boogeyman.
