Rumour Control - Lucy NOT in upcoming Alias
- Seems there was a rumour floating around the Xenaverse that Lucy was or is being offered a part on the tv show Alias. Unfortunately for Lucy fans this is not true.
Sharon Delaney has just posted the following on the Official Xena Fan Club Kit mailing list:
"Checked with Lucy about that rumor she is going to play one of Syd's aunts on Alias and she said it isn't true. Not to say that something couldn't happen in the future with that show (never say never in this
town), but this particular rumor is false."
Added 43 screengrabs from Alien Apocalypse with Renee, the bugs and Bruce
Alien Apocalypse - Reviews
- Added a breakdown

post apocalyptic sci-fi movie.

- CBS Unleashes Plague of 'Locusts' in April - Zap2It
Zap2It - Friday, March 25 08:19 AM
LOS ANGELES (Zap2it.com) Given that CBS' Sunday (March 20) exploitation movie "Spring Break Shark Attack" managed to scare up some 11.59 million viewers, it seems like the network may continue with more
offerings that seem better suited to the Sci Fi Channel. In that vein, get ready for a little telefilm CBS likes to call "Locusts," premiering on Sunday, April 24.

I firmly believe this is a case of helping out for the Greater Good and when Xena fans come together...good things happen. I feel this is important. I have nothing against Canada but the Seal Hunt
HAS to stop.
The largest commercial slaughter of marine mammals on the planet will begin in late March. By the end of this year's hunt, more than 300,000 seals will have been brutally killed--many of them babies as young as 12
days old. Some of them will have been
skinned while still conscious and able to feel pain. Stand with me today and stop the seal hunt forever by joining the Canadian seafood boycott. To learn more about the hunt and sign the pledge click here:
Once you've signed the pledge, you'll be able to spot Canadian seafood by using HSUS's downloadable pocket guide to spotting seafood. Thanks for joining me in ending this awful hunt.

TV Guide Online - Is Lucy going to be the new Wonder Woman?
- The following is from TV Guide Online
Question: Now, I think we all know where you stand on the casting for Joss Whedon's Wonder Woman (Entertainment News 3/17), but I feel obliged to mention my best friend's belief that the one and only (aside
from Lynda Carter, natch) choice is Lucy Lawless. If ever the opportunity presents itself, be sure to pass on to Joss this viable second choice (since you would naturally push for Lauren Graham). — Brian

Alien Apocalypse News - bad news for UK fans. The following is from UK Scifi Channel (via Barbara Davies)"I am
afraid we currently have no immediate plans to show the movie ALIEN APOCALYPSE on Sci Fi. However, we are constantly reviewing our schedule and
I have forwarded your email to the relevant department for discussion their
next meeting. In the meantime, I hope you continue to enjoy other programmes
on Sci Fi."
Censorship of Lucy's Back on Two and a Half Men
The following is from Sharon's Page and TV Tome regarding Two and a Half Men. Time Magazine
has an interesting tidbit about Lucy's appearance on Two and a Half Men.
The Decency Police
In the March 7 episode of the sitcom Two and a Half Men, creator Chuck Lorre inserted a statement, which flashed on screen for a second, protesting that CBS had made
him trim a scene that showed the naked back of a young woman - a common enough sight on crime dramas and, say, shampoo commercials.
Messages of Thanks via Creation
From Starship Foundation (Lucy is on the board of this children's hospital in New
Zealand and we helped raise money in support at The 10th Anniversary Convention):
- "Many thanks for thinking of us and delivering this wonderful donation. We're so lucky to have people like you and Lucy helping our cause"
From Robert Bruce, the late Kevin (Ares) Smith's best friend and representative:
"Thanking you once again sincerely for your continued support. Sue and the boys are all doing fine and are overwhelmed at the donations that continue to come in."
And, from The James W. Ellis, Jr. Scholarship of Hofstra University:
"Special Thanks ~to~ Creation Entertainment and devoted fans and celebrities for their continuous support of the James W. Ellis, Jr. Scholarship."
In honor of Anita Ellis’ father who had colon cancer this scholarship was established in 1997. This scholarship helps students who have had cancer touch their lives. This
scholarship has raised over $400,000 and has helped a total of 350 students with their college education.
There is a brief mention of Lucy and what she's been up to since Xena ended.

The following is from Sharon about the pic of Lucy on the set of Locusts!
Answers to some questions I've been getting about the photo.
Lucy is on set studying her lines in a bank in New Orleans that is standing in for a government building in DC. Those are extras sitting next to her. She's been outside in the farm country with the locusts which is why
the government employees are dressed more in business attire. Lucy's character, Maddy, is married so Lucy just wore her own ring.
Lucy's role is Dr Maddy Rierdon. The other cast member mentioned on
the Official Xena Fan Club page is Dylan Neil who plays Dr Maddy's husband.
Two and a half Men
The episode of "Two and a Half Men" featuring Lucy, "It was Mame,
Mom", will be shown on Channel 9 on the 20th of June.
