Xena Actor News...

Kate Elliott played Yakut on Xena and Sarge's sister Lily on Cleopatra 2525 and has won best actress award for her portrayal of a solo mother strugging to bring up her baby son when her family is falling apart - the movie is called Fracture

PERFECT CREATURE, directed by Glenn Standring, a vision of a futuristic world where vampires and humans have learnt to co-exist, with an international cast including Dougray Scott and Saffron Burrows, and guest starring New Zealanders Scott Wills, Craig Hall and Lauren Jackson and in supporting roles Brett Stewart, Jon Brazier, Danielle Cormack, Alison Bruce and John Sumner. Release date is for 2005.

IN MY FATHERS DEN, directed by Brad McGann, starring Auckland Actors Colin Moy, Jodie Rimmer and Jimmy Keen. Also starring Matthew Macfadyen, Miranda Otto, Emily Barclay, Vicky Haughton.
A disillusioned war journalist's return home is blighted when he becomes implicated in the mysterious disappearance of a teenage girl he has befriended. Based on the book 'In My Father's Den' by Maurice Gee, and adapted for screen by Brad McGann. Brad McGann’s gripping psychological mystery is a tragedy, reverberant with New Zealand life. It’s a story about human frailties and strengths.
“One of the best New Zealand films in years” (Galye Lake, Sydney Film Festival director)
'Sydney Film Festival opens with a corker of a curtain-raiser from the other side of the Tasman. Not only is In My Father's Den one of the best films to hail from this part of the world, but also it's one of the best films I have ever seen'. (The Australian, June 2004)
Winner of the International Critics Choice award at the Toronto Film Festival, 2004.

This is so awesome, because we now have two dates with our fave ladies in 2005. There's the big 10th Anniversary Xena Celebration Convention in Pasadena of course, but there's something else coming further into 2005.

We're bringing a special convention into Seattle at the same time that Lucy Lawless is starring live in GENTLEMEN PREFER BLONDES, the musical comedy classic. This is a major musical gig for LL and you know we all had to be there.

We've arranged for a block of primo tickets for Friday evening's (May 13, 2005) performance and then we roll into a great convention on Saturday and Sunday starring RENEE!

The attendance for the musical is limited since much of the theatre is already pre-booked by subscribers so please visit our site now to reserve your GOLD WEEKEND PACKAGES that include everything!

It's gonna be great to cheer Lucy on and also see Renee in her first Pacific Northwest appearance. And there's lots more planned to.

Grab our very best seats by visiting us online for full details.

Added Cloning Around At the Polls (Complete) by Cath, Bard

Xenaverse News

For those interested in a unique gift for the upcoming holidays or to spoil yourself, have a look at this: Xena prop Gabrielle main hero costume journal book

This book has 100 archival and acid-free pages with light brown lines printed professionally (by a professional printer, NOT on a home computer printer!) using soy-based inks. The pages are 8.5 x 11 inches and were sewn together by hand in signatures (folded sections) using 100% cotton thread. This is the ideal way to sew together a book. It lays open completely flat. It has very natural-colored tan, textured endpapers and there is a photo of Gabrielle in her classic hero costume at the front of the book, and another photo of her in her season 5 costume with her sais at the back of the book (same as the photos below). The cover is made of very dark green pigskin leather over archival binder’s board and tag board. There are two raised sai designs on the front and a single, recessed, slightly larger sai design on the back.

The main feature of the cover are two squares of the REAL fabric used to make Renee O’Connor’s classic Gabrielle main hero costume. The top square is a piece of her green embroidered sports bra/top fabric and the bottom square is a piece of her brown wrap skirt fabric. Both of these materials were purchased from Mark Butler in New Zealand. He bought them at the original Turner’s auction in the spring of 2001 after the end of the series. He bought several boxes of materials from the Pacific Renaissance costume department, and these materials were found in Renee’s personal costume fabric box. This material was used only for Gabrielle’s main hero costume.

A Friend in Need....

We can be proud to say that as fans in the Xenaverse,  being a part of the greater good is one of our "Many Skills." In various times of need, Xena's fandom proven that our sense of charity knows no bounds. We hope to continue that on that path and help one who has helped so many others...

In August of this year, Anita Ellis, founder of the James Ellis Foundation,  host of Creation's Charity Breakfasts, Dean of Students at Hofstra University, as well as family member and friend to so many, discovered that her own mother Marie was diagnosed with leukemia, an acute type of cancer
labeled APL. Since that time, Anita and Marie have been combatting this  illness and both of these strong women have been facing this obstacle with stern determination. Now, we'd like to help the ones who have helped so many others...

Now until January of 2005, the Xenaversity of Minnesota would like to ask for your donation to help battle this disease. As many of us know, hospital visit bills, medication, transportation and normal every day living adds up fast and every cent donated with help alleviate some of those burdens. Your
donation can be $1.00, it can be $100.

If you can't afford to donate, that is ok too. We are also sending positive energy Marie's way through our WING and A PRAYER page, where your name can be added to yet another set of fluttering wings spreading hope and strength to New York!


Thank you for reading this and I hope that we can make a difference in someone's life that has made a difference in ours....

Thank you
Xenaversity of Minnesota

Boogeyman Movie Update

The following is from Comingsoon.net

The Boogeyman to Scare on Video
Source: Alex Bond October 3, 2004

Boogeyman, which was originally intended to be the first film for Sam Raimi's recently established Ghost House Pictures, will be skipping theaters and heading directly to DVD and video. Sarah Michelle Gellar horror remake The Grudge, opening October 22, will now instead be Ghost House's first feature.

Filmed in Auckland, New Zealand, Boogeyman was originally planned for a mid-2004 theatrical release but was forced to undergo reshoots in January, and has subsequently been pushed back to February.

Columbia Tristar Home Entertainment will be releasing Boogeyman, which has been rated PG-13 by the MPAA for intense sequences of horror and terror/violence, and some partial nudity. The film stars Barry Watson, Emily Deschanel, Lucy Lawless, Skye McCole Bartusiak, Charles Mesure, Tory Mussett, and Louise Wallace.

This is quite funny. The following is from Myopia who lives in Hungary.

The Hungarian channel Viasat3 is broadcasting the syndicated series Tarzan with Lucy Lawless. Our country is famous for quality dubbing, however this time something interesting happened  that would make Xena fans worldwide trilled (or horrified). For some reason Lucy Lawless voice was dubbed with the voice of Erika Kiss who was the Hungarian voice of Gabrielle. Thus the Hungarian Xena fans have an odd experience of watching Xena with the voice of Gabrielle, so to speak :))

AUSXIP Lucy Lawless Files - Xena Boogeyman Warrior Women

REAF Help Is on the Way X

I received the following email from Ken Henderson, Executive Director, Event Producer
The Richmond/Ermet AIDS Foundation (REAF)

I just wanted to let you know that we gave out the checks last night to the beneficiaries of "Help is on the Way X."  The total amount distributed was $145,000 ­ a $5,000 grant to Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and $28,000 to each of the five beneficiaries of our event. The checks were handed out at a special reception at Louis Aronow Gallery downtown in the Union Square
Area.  Each agency reported what the funds received from REAF have done or will do for their agency. Carolla Detrick, Exec. Director of Meals of Marin, told the crowd that these funds will provide over 6,600 meals to people with AIDS in Marin County and Peggy Bush, Exec. Director of Center for AIDS Services in Oakland, reported that, without the funds they have received
from REAF, they would have had to close their doors. She expanded to say that funds from REAF were used to rebuild their kitchen which previously had been completely inadequate to feed the hundreds of clients they see each month.  People got to see and hear for themselves that the money they spend on tickets for our events, while providing great entertainment, truly do
touch people's lives and, in many cases, keep people alive.

I'll be posting photos from the event and a brief review on our website as soon as I get them back this weekend.

Thanks again for all your support.
