TV's 'Xena' Marries Exec. Producer
March 30, 1998

SANTA MONICA, Calif. (AP) -- Lucy Lawless, the leather-clad star of TV's ``Xena: Warrior Princess,'' has married the show's executive producer.

Lawless, 30, wed Rob Tapert, 43, on Saturday at a Santa Monica church, publicist Leah Krantzler said.

Lawless topped People magazine's list of Top 10 Trendsetters of 1998, released last month. She also played Rizzo in Broadway's ``Grease'' last fall while on a break from ``Xena.''

It was Tapert's first marriage and Lawless' second. She has a 9-year-old daughter from her first marriage.

They were honeymooning Monday at an undisclosed location.
