Warrior Women

The documentary series that Lucy narrated "Warrior Women" will be shown on South African TV on Tuesday night. Below is an article from Pretoria News (Tonight Section) about Xena and the doco:

  • Xena and her warrior women July 31, 2006 - Tonight (Pretoria News)
    She stood tall as an oak tree, her long jet-black hair framing a face men would kill for; her body worthy of the silks of a pampered queen, but dressed instead in skin-tight leather; her only adornments a sword and pair of lethal hands able to crack a head open with one blow. Her name was Xena … for best effect, whispered, her still-adoring fans will tell you, with just a little breathlessness in the tone. Click here to read more

  • MultiChannel News Site - 31 July 2006
    Pandemonium erupted as 6,000 fans crowded the doors of Ballroom 20, awaiting Sci Fi’s Battlestar Galactica panel, attended by stars Edward James Olmos and Lucy Lawless (who appears in an upcoming 10-episode third-season arc). Executive producer David Eick and Olmos, caught up in the rock star atmosphere of cheering fans and cameras flashing by the hundreds, were soon tossing spoilers like candy, to the consternation of the network.

Possible new show for Lucy?

The following report is from TDS Internet Services News

  • Is Fox softening its edge? 07/25/06 - 07:35 AM  In other Fox news:
    *Fox has lined up a batch of singers to pair with not-usually-singing celebrities for Celebrity Duets, a new short-run reality series that arrives Aug. 29 (8 ET/PT). The show, produced by Simon Cowell, is a riff on Dancing with the Stars. Instead of professional dancers, to-be-named celebs will sing with Cyndi Lauper, Smokey Robinson, Dionne Warwick, Randy Travis, Brian McKnight, Macy Gray, Patti LaBelle, Kenny Loggins, Chaka Khan, Richard Marx, Michael Bolton, Clint Black and Aaron Neville. Composer David Foster is one of the judges; Lucy Lawless is among other celebrities to be announced later. - Many thanks to Barbara Davies for the news

Dragonlance Movie Update

There's an interview with George Strayton about the movie (George wrote the screenplay) on the Dragonlance Nexus site and there's a Lucy mention:

Dragonhelm: You previously worked with Lucy Lawless on Xena: Warrior Princess. What was it like working with her again on the Dragonlance movie?

GS: She's a gifted actress, plus she's just plain fun to work with and be around. We had a great time recording her part.

Dragonhelm: One review I read of Xena was that it is "smart TV pretending that it's dumb". Do you think this is a fair characterization?

GS: I think it's close. At least, that's what we strove for. Unfortunately, there are a few episodes that are dumb TV not even trying to pretend to be smart.  Click here to read full interview at the Dragonlance Nexus

Xenaverse Bards - Book Update

Here’s a book announcement from KG MacGregor:
Thanks to all of you who have written looking for Just This Once. I’m happy to announce it is now available from Bella Books, with a brand new cover from Steph. You might recognize the story of Wynne Connelly and Paula McKenzie as one that appeared on the web as Getting It Right. Thank you, thank you, thank you for all the feedback you sent on that story. Because of you, the book version is longer, with deeper insights into both of the lead characters, and more scenes from their road together. You can read the first chapter of the book at my website, www.kgmacgregor.com

For anyone headed out to Provincetown, I’ll be signing copies of Just This Once and Undercover Tales at Vixen Nightclub on August 4th. It’s part of the Fridays at Four series, sponsored by Now Voyager Books, Vixen, & Cicchetti’s Espresso Bar. I look forward to seeing familiar faces and meeting new friends.

Vicki Pratt News

  • Pratt Is Fit For Day Break
    Victoria Pratt, who will star in ABC's upcoming fantasy series Day Break, told SCI FI Wire that her work as a fitness writer helped her ease into her acting career. The athletic actress has appeared in Xena: Warrior Princess and Mutant X and will now play a detective opposite Taye Diggs in Day Break, about a guy who relives the same day over and over. "I'm detective Andrea Battle, an undercover narcotics  detective, and, of course, I have a few secrets," Pratt said in an interview at the Television Critics Association's summer press tour in Pasadena, Calif., last week.

Xena Planet News

  • ASTRONOMERS are expected to add at least one new planet to the nine in
    our solar system. The new body, provisionally named Xena, is 14 billion kilometres from the Sun -- about 100 times more distant than Earth and well beyond Pluto. Its diameter is 2399km, 113km greater than that of Pluto, the smallest and most distant planet, which may qualify Xena for planetary status.
    The decision will be taken at a meeting of the International Astronomical Union in Prague next month, when 2000 astronomers will be asked to vote on the expansion of the solar system. Click here to read more

Battlestar Galactica

Looks like Season 4 may be on the cards for BSG according to the article in Now Playing Magazine

  • Comic-Con 2006: Superman Returns Returns, Galactica Year Four, Optimus Prime, and More   Written by Scott Collura  Friday, 21 July 2006
    I bumped into Battlestar Galactica’s Chief Tyrol, Aaron Douglas, at the Diamond Select toy party last night, and he let loose with word that the show is currently shooting episodes 11 and 12 of season three, and that, yes, his character and Cally are in fact now the proud parents of a son named Nicholas. He also says that a season four for the show is all but a sure thing, citing the potential of a syndication package that would rely on at least a four-year string of episodes. - Many thanks to Barbara Davies for the news

This is pretty cool news - Talking Xena has just got it's 1 Millionth post! Talking Xena was born 11 January 2001 as part of AUSXIP by Redhead and myself as a refuge for Netforum members for a few years before handing the reins to the most capable hands of EZRyder. Through a few problems, hack attacks and lots of love and dedication by EZRyder, Tobias and the rest of the crew of Talking Xena, the forum has thrived and has now celebrated 1 Millionth post. Congratulations guys! Congratulations also the forum members.

Lucy & Renee - Back 2 Back DVD Review

I usually don't do reviews but I just wanted to with this one. The Lucy & Renee Back 2 Back DVD is from Creation and it's Lucy and Renee's stage time during the 2006 Xena Con in January. I didn't attend this convention and I'm really stoked Creation is doing these DVDs because I get to be there without flying 13 hours to get there <vbg>

Disk 1 was Lucy. I found Lucy to be her usual funny, charming and thoroughly endearing self and her singing of the "Cowboy Song" to be so beautiful; accompanied by Sharon Delaney and her guitar. I never get tired watching this woman whether she is acting or being just Lucy.

Disk 2 contained Renee's performance. I came away from watching this DVD thinking that Renee had undergone a metamorphosis in her thinking and the way she looked at certain issues by her trip to Israel and Jordan. It's one of those moments when you know it's life changing. Her trip up Mt Kilimanjaro changed her and this trip also changed her. Her reading of a monologue from her friend about life as an Israeli and how different she viewed life which constrasted to how Renee saw things was extraordinary. Very thought provoking and quite moving. Renee made her experience in travelling to Israel come alive; you could hear the excitement and the awe in her voice. Watching Renee share her thoughts, her plans and her desire to do something different was fantastic.

Being a fan of these two women is so so easy.

In my opinion this is the best DVD Creation has produced of these two fantastic women. Many many thanks to Lucy and Renee for sharing their time with us and to Creation and Sharon Delaney for producing the DVD.

You can buy the DVD from Creation by going to their site

Dragonlance Movie Update

  • Tracy Hickman's latest Dragonhearth podcast mentioned Lucy:
    DragonHearth SPECIAL EDITION for Thursday, July 13, 2006
    To paraphrase, Tracy mentions that he and Margaret Weis were under a non disclosure agreement about the Dragonlance movie but that 'Lucy Lawless - Xena' mentioning it on her website made them feel able to say something at last. They also say that the film is currently 'in production' and that 'all of the voice work has been done'. And they announce their cast and are clearly thrilled with the names they have got. (Though apparently Kiefer Sutherland's agent 'tried to talk him out of it'. <g>) The film will be out in a year - that's the 'target date'.  Many thanks to Barbara Davies for the news

  • Bourne's Edge (Alt/Complete) by Barbara Davies
    A librarian fleeing for her life from a vengeful businessman. An immortal Fae exiled forever from Faerie. What could the two possibly have in common?

Featured Story:

  • Alias Smith & Jones by Advocate & T. Novan (alt)
    Once I stopped laughing so hard I had tears running down my cheeks, I decided to give this an award. It's one of the funniest stories I have ever read. Delilah Foster & Dixie Wagner follow the great tradition of those tv preachers who swindle money from good Christian people. What they don't bank on is a visit from 'God' and his mama. They are soon turned from their bad ways and want to give away the money but it's not so easy. This is a must read if you want a pick me up and a really feel good story.

New Movie with Adrienne Wilkinson and Zoe Bell

The Internet Movie Database is reporting that Adrienne will be in a new movie called Reflections which also stars Zoe Bell (who is also the stunt coordinator):

When Carol looks into a mirror -- any mirror -- she sees images that horrify and repulse her. She's not a Medium, she's not a Ghost Whisperer, she's a frightened young woman on the edge of madness. Will the handsome stranger who offers to help turn out to be her salvation, or her final vision of terror?
