A Chat with Lucy Lawless, the Sweetest Warrior Princess in the Universe

ImageThe Geekiary.com has an interview with Lucy on their site which they conducted during New York Comic Con. Lucy chats about Rob reinvigorating the show - a reimagining of sorts.

Some highlights:

Bandit: So, can we expect a Xena reunion anytime soon?

Lucy: A TV show or something?

Bandit: A TV show or something or…?

Lucy: That would be awesome. You know, they keep trying to push for it. Rob’s trying to figure out how to make it. Trying to reinvigorate it. Like, re-tell.

Bandit: So, would want to do that? Just sit down with everyone?

Lucy: Oh! Yeah! I’ve always loved those people. I’m gonna see Renee, and Adrienne Wilkinson, and all those girls again. I’ve loved Ted dearly. He’s a good friend. So, is Bruce. [...] I’ve always wanted to do something with Ted, Bruce and Renee. That would be a really funny core group of actors. That’s, that’s my dream.

This is the Metal Painted Version of the ‪#‎xena‬ ‪#‎lucylawless‬ ‪#‎exclusive‬ that we are doing for Lucy's table for ‪#‎nycc‬ Remember that there will ONLY be 15 of these exclusives. After that there will be regular prints that she will be offering at her table. The regular prints are 11x17 and the Metal Portraits are sized at 12x18

Née aux États-Unis, la mode des conventions arrive en France. Quand les stars du petit écran viennent à la rencontre de leurs fans... Les 25 et 26 octobre, si vous croisez dans Paris des jeunes filles court vêtues, brandissant un glaive, ne vous inquiétez pas. Il s’agit tout simplement de la troisième édition de la Xenite Con’, une convention dédiée à la série Xena. Cette année encore, de nombreux fans français devraient être au rendez-vous pour rencontrer la star de la série, Lucy Lawless, et quatre autres actrices : Renée O’Connor, Hudson Leick, Alexandra Tydings et Adrienne Wilkinson. Au programme, conférences, séances photos, autographes avec les actrices…

130 000 fans chaque été à San Diego

Ce genre de salon est né aux États-Unis, notamment grâce à la science-fiction. Lors des conventions Star Trek, par exemple, la règle veut que les fans arborent les costumes de la série. Le Comic-Con, à San Diego, est d’ailleurs considéré comme la convention à ne pas rater, où quelque 130 000 fans se réunissent tous les étés. Acteurs de films et de séries, auteurs de comic books sont présents durant quatre jours pour cette grand-messe de la pop culture (photo). En France, les conventions commencent à se multiplier. Après Xena, Game of Thrones sera à l’honneur avec WinterFall, qui se tiendra à Paris les 13 et 14 décembre prochains, en présence de Jack Gleeson, l’inénarrable Joffrey Baratheon, et Iain Glen, l’interprète de Jorah Mormont. Il faudra cependant casser sa tirelire avant de passer deux jours avec les héros de ses séries préférées. Les forfaits s’achètent entre 60 et 500 euros ! Les autographes, photoshoots et rencontres privilégiées sont en supplément, les tarifs évoluant en fonction de la notoriété de la star choisie. Pour 30 minutes partagées avec une dizaine de fans en compagnie de Lucy Lawless, il faudra débourser pas moins de 150 € de plus. Mais, quand on aime, on ne compte pas ! Émilie Semiramoth
