Lucy on The Late Show with Conan O'Brien

21 June 2001

It's never boring in the Xenaverse...

Lucy has revealed that after watching Friend In Need, she finally saw that Xena and Gabrielle are lovers and said so on Conan! I still can't believe she did that but what the heck Lucy has joined the Subtext fans - welcome to the Subbers Lucy! Renee is already a member <g>

"Conan :  A lot of people want to know does Xena die in this episode?  You can
tell us right now, it's very late at night, very few people are watching.

Lucy:  Well she does come out.

Conan: She does? She comes out of the closet in this episode?

Lucy: Actually, you know, there was always an element of doubt in my mind, it
was... it didn't matter to the way I played the role.  So if the audience
chose to see it or not, but I saw it for the first time last night and I went
home and said to my husband, "you've outted my character".

Conan: Seriously?  You mean your character just comes out and says, "Hi, I
like the ladies?".

Lucy: I.. I just...I can't believe I'm saying this.. I didn't run this by
anybody, but I don't think there's any doubt in my mind anymore...
