Playing Xenas younger, blonder sidekick on the syndicated series, Renee OConnor keeps the fantasy world spinning with her portrayal of whip-smart Gabrielle. "She has the mentality of a poet but the capabilities of killing a man like a warrior," says the 29-year-old OConnor, a surprisingly soft-spoken Texan. Fans have seen her character evolve from peasant girl to pinup. "I have matured over the years, and as I have felt sexier, [the producers] have allowed Gabrielle to show more skin," she says. Gabrielles very close bond with Xena has led to speculation about her characters sexual preference. "I can look back... and not be surprised that people thought [they were lovers]," says OConnor, whos engaged. "I believe they are soul mates."
