After the Twilight of the Gods, the world is precariously uncertain - and Xena and Gabrielle have been missing from it for twenty-five years. Even without Livia, the power of Rome is growing: Caesar is determined to conquer by lies what he can't conquer by force, and the people at its edges know what's coming. (All roads lead to Rome, and Rome is hunting.) Xena and Gabrielle scramble to stop him before they have to wage war against a man they once called a friend. But along the way, Xena will have to confront her past against a rogue band of women warriors, and Gabrielle, whose secret visions are becoming prophecy, will have to protect Xena - at any cost.

Perth Now Sunday Times: Interview with Lucy at Perth OzComicCon 02 April 2016


Oz Comic-Con: Xena star Lucy Lawless says Kalgoorlie was a ‘bizarre detour’ to fame

Perth Now (Sunday Times)

2 April 2016

LUCY Lawless says her time in Kalgoorlie was a “bizarre detour” on the road to acting.

The Xena: Warrior Princess star, who made an appearance at Oz Comic-Con in Perth on Saturday night, said she knew she always wanted to act.

“Life’s like that. You get off course, get a little bit of life experience and you come back to your goal,” the 47-year-old said.

“And just because you don’t get paid for it, doesn’t mean you’re not getting closer to your goal.

“If you want to be an actor you do a little bit towards that and that’s what I would do.”

Lawless was the star attraction at this year’s Oz Comic-Con in Perth, joining the celebrity guest list just weeks after the announcement of the Xena reboot.

Although her husband Robert Tapert is working with the NBC reboot, Lawless told her Perth fans that she doesn’t know if she would be making an appearance.

“I would have to read (the script) through and they would have to want me,” she said.

“It would depend on the role because you know what? It’s not like I need the offer.

“I thought my career would be thinning off by now but it’s not and I’m delighted.”

While lesbian relationships are becoming commonplace on television, it’s not that long ago that the subject was still taboo, which is why surprise 90s hit Xena: Warrior Princess was such a revelation.

Although Xena, played by Lucy Lawless, was never explicitly gay, there were more than a few moments where the subtext was clear.

“To have lesbians in lead roles where the lesbian community could actually see themselves reflected for the first time in ages, I think that was what gave it a real kind of hip vibe at the time,” Lawless told AAP.

Lawless said the writers always knew what they were doing with the character and her relationship with sidekick Gabrielle, played by Renee O’Connor, who Lawless describes as “like a sister” to her.

But the New Zealand actress says she is astonished the show has such a strong following more than a decade after it ended.

Xena Warrior Princess Journeys to Oz Comic-Con!

Attention all Warriors and ancient warlords: the world’s toughest princess is taking control of Oz Comic-Con Perth and Adelaide this April. Lucy Lawless, best known as Xena on cult-favourite series Xena: Warrior Princess, is making an exclusive appearance on the Saturday of each event.

Lawless is a sci-fi and fantasy fan favourite, and is sure to have Australian fans preparing their Warrior-inspired outfits for her visit. But it’s not just all about Xena. After completing her stint as the tough-talking, Chakram-chucking princess, Lawless moved on to prominent roles in Battlestar Galactica, Spartacus: Blood and Sand, Spartacus: Gods of the Arena, Parks and Recreation and most recently on the television series Ash vs. Evil Dead as the mysterious Ruby Knowby.

Lawless will be taking part in professional photograph and autograph opportunities on the Saturday of each event, as well as hosting an exclusive Q&A panel in each city. Super fans can cash in on the Ultimate Experience and guarantee their seat at an exclusive evening function with Lawless as well.

Lawless joins Supernatural’s Jim Beaver and Once Upon A Time’s Liam Garrigan and Christie Laing on a quickly growing guest list for the debut Oz Comic-Con 2016 events. Film and television guests are just the tip of the iceberg of what attendees can expect at Oz Comic-Con, with unique features, world-class comic book artists, workshops, interactive displays and a huge range of vendors filling the show floor across the weekends.

Oz Comic-Con Perth will be held at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre on April 2-3, and in Adelaide at the Adelaide Showgrounds on April 9-10.
