Picture Trivia
          Lucy Lawless (birth name Lucille Frances Ryan) is a New Zealand actress best known for his role as Xena, the warrior princess. Prior to this, she first appeared on the pilot episode of Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, “Hercules and the Amazon Woman” (1994), as the man-hating Amazon name Lysia. She also played another character, Lyla, on the first season episode “As Darkness Falls.” Lawless got her best known role when she was asked to play a warrior woman named Xena in the episode “Warrior Princess” (March 1995), after Vanessa Angel, the actress originally cast for the role, fell ill and was unable to travel to New Zealand for the shooting. Lawless subsequently returned as Xena in two more episodes of the first season where her character turned from villainess to heroine. The character became so popular that a spin-off series was created – Xena: The Warrior Princess (1995-2001).
