Lucy Lawless Career
At the age of 10 Lucy Lawless appeared in her first musical and began acting in secondary school. She attended Marist College, Auckland. At the age of 18 she went on her “overseas experience”, travelling through Europe and Australia with her future husband, Garth Lawless. At 21, she won the 1989 Mrs New Zealand competition.
She studied drama at the William Davis Centre for Actors Study in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. She made her television debut in two and a half seasons as a cast member of the New Zealand sketch comedy series Funny Business. In 1994, Lawless appeared in Hercules and the Amazon Women, a Pacific Renaissance Pictures made-for-television film
That became the television pilot for Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. In that episode, she played a man-hating Amazon named Lysia. She went on to play another character, Lyla, in the first-season episode “As Darkness Falls.”
Lucy Lawless Xena
Lawless played the heroic warrior woman named Xena in the episode “The Warrior Princess,” which aired in March 1995. The character proved to be very successful among fans of the show.
Vanessa Angel was originally cast in the role, but she fell ill and was unable to travel to New Zealand for shooting. To differentiate between Xena and the similar Lysia, Lawless’ hair, previously an ash blonde, was dyed black. She also wore a much darker costume, which made her unrecognisable as the Lysia character.
Lawless subsequently returned as Xena in two more episodes of the first season of Hercules, which portrayed her turn from villainess to a good, heroic character. The character became so famous that a spin-off series was created: Xena: Warrior Princess debuted on 4 September 1995. The show became a hit and lasted for six seasons.
In October 1996 during a taping an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno she suffered a fractured pelvis when the horse she was riding lost its footing in the studio car park. Several episodes of the second season of Xena were rewritten to focus on background characters to minimise the time Lawless was needed on set.
Lucy Lawless Spartacus
Lucy co-starred in the Starz original series Spartacus: Blood and Sand. The show was based on the life of Spartacus, the famous gladiator, and the slave revolt he led. She played the role of Lucretia, the wife of Lentulus Batiatus, who were both the owners of a gladiator ludus, which also saw Lawless doing nude scenes for the first time.
Lawless won the 2011 Saturn Award as Best Supporting Actress for her role as Lucretia in Spartacus: Blood and Sand. Lawless reprised her role as Lucretia in Spartacus: Gods of the Arena, which chronicled life in the Ludus before Spartacus’s arrival, and she also returned for the sequel Spartacus: Vengeance.
Lucy Lawless Spiderman
Lucy appeared in Spiderman as Punk Rocker girl, with short orange hair and a nose piercing, smoking a cigarette.
Lucy Lawless Singing
Lawless has a background in musical theatre as she played Betty Rizzo on Broadway in a production of Grease in 1997. She continued to sing during the run of Xena, even contributing dirge music of her own composition; this made it into the episode “The Path Not Taken” as the dirge “Burial,” which she sang for the first time in the episode.
Lucy was a contestant on Celebrity Duets, which she finished as runner-up to Alfonso Ribeiro. She made her onstage debut on 13th January 2007 at the Roxy in Hollywood.
