Exclusive Renee O'Connor Interview 28 April 2007

Renee was gracious enough to give AUSXIP reporter Christa and her sidekick Ruth a video interview for the site. It's a wide ranging interview covering a great many topics including working on Boogeyman, Ghost Town, her thoughts on her co-workers over the years in various movies and some stories. Her thoughts about living in New Zealand, what Xena taught her and other topics.

The interview is 15 minutes in length and it's Renee at her most candid. You can now download two video clips.

Christa and Ruth are sleep deprived in getting this video interview to me (we finished at 3 am LA time) so I hope you all enjoy this interview. It's a real keeper in my opinion! It's also my favourite Renee interview!

Many thanks to Renee for taking the time for this interview and for being so candid. Renee was also given the money from the mini auction which raised $710 and she presented the checks to the Alissa Ann Ruch Burn Foundation!

I hope you all enjoy this interview.

If you are in Australia, you will have to wait to view the movie Grindhouse. It seems the movie hasn't done all that great in the US. The following appeared on the site regarding the release of the movie in Australia:

The heavily anticipated "Grindhouse" has been pulled from its May release slot in Australia and postponed till later in the year - at which time it will be split into two separate movies. Roadshow Film Distributors confirmed this today, in the following email :
In keeping with the theatrical release plans for all territories outside of the US, GRINDHOUSE will now be released as two separate theatrical features:  DEATH PROOF directed by Quentin Tarantino and PLANET TERROR directed by Robert Rodriguez.
Quentin Tarantino’s DEATH PROOF is premiering in the Cannes Film Festival in May. The Australian release of DEATH PROOF will be later in the year and will be followed by the release of PLANET TERROR.

This is majorly cool and I want to pass it along. As we know breast cancer is such a scourge and we need a cure so breast cancer research needs all the funds it can get. If you can help, that will be less money that they won't have to raise to find a cure for this disease.

1 in 11 Women are diagnosed with the disease in their lifetime.

The following is from XenaCast Blog site.

My buddy Candideyes is walking 60 miles to raise money for breast cancer research. If you can donate a $1 or $1000, please go to her donation page and help her reach her goal.

Candid is also offering her professional quality photos that she's taken over the years at Xena events. There are lots of photos of Lucy during her concert at the Roxy last January. They are available for a $20 donation plus S&H. Visit the thread she started at the Xena Online Community board for photo info.

Xena Episode Podcasts and Fanfic Podcasts

Some time ago Joanna Sandsmark did audio versions of Missy Good's fiction and some other authors which I have enjoyed a great deal. You can still get those on Carol's site (Xena Multimedia) as mp3.

The XenaCast site takes that concept one step further and creates Xena/Lucy/Renee News & Episode Podcasts which are quite interesting. Amy does a really good job with these, she's got a very pleasant voice to listen to and I thoroughly enjoyed the couple of podcasts I've had the chance to listen to. Amy also does fanfic podcasts. So if you're into podcasts, hop on over to the XenaCast site and enjoy!

Lucy At The Roxy DVD Review by MaryD

As many of you know, I live in Oz and normally mail to Oz takes forever (especially if a certain customs guy wants to see the videos and the DVDs before I do...which happens would think I was bringing in naughty videos but that's another story for another time).

I received my DVD today which was a surprise at how quick it swam over. I was very eager to see this since I'm still giving my boss grief over not giving me the time off (he's a friend so I can give him a dose of the guilts).

My first impression was that Lucy's voice is stronger and richer since Duets. She was VERY relaxed. She couldn't lose here - she was in friend territory. There was absolutely no way she was going to disapoint anyone that night or not give her all. This was Lucy reaching out to her fans the only way Lucy knows how. Lucy owned that stage.

The last time I saw Lucy perform live was in Seattle in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (I won't gush about that now - go read the report Cindy and I wrote) and I felt Lucy was a tad nervous starter with her first song in the first show. I didn't see any of that nervousness from the start of the concert. It was gone. Again it could be because she was performing in front of her fans but Lucy the performer has matured.

That was simply amazing. Lucy's voice is so much stronger and powerful that in Duets. She was electrifying. Lucy owned that stage. I contrasted her performance singing Maxine with Dave Dobbyn in New Zealand (saw it on tape) and singing Maxine at the NZ Pre oscar bash (again on tape). Her voice was richer in singing this classic song; she owned the song rather than letting the music dictate (if that makes any sense but that's the impression I got). I loved all the songs and the banter in between.

I compared Tell Mama with her Duets performance and again it was richer, stronger, more vibrant.

Sharlotte Gibson has a phenomenal voice. Need to check out if her CD is available to buy.

If you haven't bought this DVD, I highly recommend it. Creation has outdone themselves with the quality of this DVD - mind you they really had something special to work with but the sound is great, the editing is superb, the camera work is wonderful. This is a real keeper. Well done Creation.

This is a must have for any Lucy fan and if you're a Renee fan (I get a double treat) you will LOOOOOVVVEEEE Renee's cameo. That woman can move! Go Ren!

Lucy rocked the Roxy and it was superb!

Go buy the DVD at

Football Wives Update

Brian White (Kyle Jameson on FW) has posted news about Football Wives on his MySpace Blog on the 9th March (it reads in part):

As you know, TV pilots are never a sure bet to go to series -- meaning that you may never get to see the pilot episode or the show at all. So, if you want to see this show on television this fall, then let ABC know about your desire to see this show "make it" to "series" by writing letters to the execs at ABC and tell them so: Read more on Brian's MySpace Blog - Many thanks to Candace for the news

Kevin Smith Tribute T-shirt

There is a  t-shirt memorial project that has been created to benefit Kevin's family. It's backed by a number of big names in the film industry, including Hercules star Kevin Sorbo and Xena actor Lucy Lawless. The shirts include the words "Old Lion Safari Park film training camp - 1963-Kevin Smith-2002. Now two former acting colleagues are paying tribute to their old mate and raising money for the family he left behind. Stuntmen Craig Dunn and Shaughan Campbell have fond memories of their work on set with Kevin. Much of it took place at the site of a former lion safari park on Redhills Rd in Massey where numerous scenes from Xena and Hercules were shot. Proceeds will go into a special trust for Kevin's wife Sue and their three sons Oscar, Tyrone and Willard.

Received the following note about the premiere of the movie from Dean Teaster:

The word of the premiere is spreading quickly and people are already buying up the VIP tickets.

AUSXIP generates no fees and is completely free to register, to bid and to donate.

Lawless, who appeared on the “Celebrity Duets” show last fall, was interested in performing the Etta James song “Jump Into My Fire” on her first CD. Cobb wrote the song. “She’s already shot the video and just wanted to know if she could have permission to use the song on the CD.
