The Power, The Passion - Xena's 18th Birthday! Hail The Warrior Princess!

ImageI posted the article below on 5 September 2012 and it seems like a good time to repost it :) Today (in the US) is Xena's 18th Birthday - the day the first episode "Sins of the Past" airred on US TV - 04 September 1995.

Xena is 18 and AUSXIP is 17...

The Power, The Passion - Xena's 18th Birthday! Hail The Warrior Princess
By MaryD

Today (in the US) is Xena's 18th Birthday - can you believe it? This show that has changed so many lives; from the actors / producers / crew to the fans has created something so unique, so special. It has created The Xenaverse - go over to the AUSXIP Charity Site to see the generosity, the love, the downright brilliance that is the Xenaverse in action. The Xenaverse has raised over 15 MILLION dollars for various charities in the last 18 years. What an amazing, incredible generosity of spirit this show has produced.

It is because of Xena: Warrior Princess we have all come together. It is because of Rob Tapert's vision, the brilliance of Lucy Lawless and Renee O'Connor who created the roles we fell in love with. We have a community that no only has grown to be such a force for good but it brings in new fans every day. It without a doubt the best show ever made; I know of no other that has impacted the lives of so many.

THE POWER, THE PASSION, THEIR COURAGE CHANGED OUR WORLD! Hail The Warrior Princess and Her Bard and the Xenaverse!
After 18 years this opening theme to my favourite show of all time still gives me a thrill

"In a time of ancient gods, warlords and kings, a land in turmoil cried out for a hero. She was Xena, a mighty princess forged in the heat of battle. The power. The passion. The danger. Her courage will change the world."

Lucy Talks About A Possible Xena Resurrection - Daily Dragon Interview August 2013

ImageThis year Lucy Lawless made her first appearance at Dragon Con, taking part in Battlestar Galactica and Spartacus panels as well as her own solo panel on Friday afternoon. Her breakout role as Xena: Warrior Princess was enough to cement her as both a geek and a girl power icon, but she continues to impress on both stage and screen. She’s returning to Parks & Recreation this season and taking on a thriller for Australian television.

Daily Dragon (DD): I read an interview you did recently where you talked about your ideas for reviving the Xena series.

Lucy Lawless (LL): What I would love to happen. I have no say over the outcome, but certainly there’s a studio that’s quite interested. They’ve been looking into who holds the rights and unpack the whole legal knot that’s tied it up for a long time. In the old days a studio would rather kill a project rather than let it go anywhere else. Or kill a project if they don’t own 100 percent of it. But in this day and age isn’t it better to own 70 percent of something than 100 percent of nothing?

This is a great idea, [Xena and Gabrielle have] a great relationship, the show has a great fanbase. Give the people what they want!

DD: You said that at some point Xena should pass on the mantle to a new warrior princess who would lead the way for a new generation. Which actress could you see in that role?

LL: I’m out of the loop of who’s out there right now. You want someone who’s capable of being funny and can also have heartfelt moments. Somebody who’s not a whiner because it’s a hard shoot.

DD: Due to all the fighting?

LL: I never really enjoyed the physical aspect of fighting and stuff; it’s just not my thing. Every single day I was shocked when they’d say “Lucy, your fight’s up!” and I thought, are you kidding me, we’ve got to do another one? My only defense was to get good at it so I could get it over and done with.
