Lucy Lawless
I never thought I'd be an action star, but now they're going to make little Xena action figures for kids. I still want to be a fine actress one day; it's just a matter of putting in the time and passion.
Lawless quotes
What's Buffy got? A wooden stake, some garlic. Xena has a full arsenal of weapons.
Lawless
It took me a long time to adjust and narrow down my life. I made my shift to the mind-set ... there's time for my daughter outside work and that's all. This is my new life. This is not drudgery. This is fun.




Lawless Lucy quotes
Lucy's got two feet on the ground; she's very, very strong and yet has a wonderful soft side that she reveals here. She's a dream to work with.
Lawless Lucy
They're also surprised I'm only 6 feet tall. They expect someone much bigger. They say I'm younger and prettier in person, which I like.
Lucy Lawless quotes
Up until I came here this week, and I met so many women and young girls who feel, to use their word - and I'm a bit embarrassed, but it's a good word - empowered, by watching. I realized this isn't a burden, this is an honor.
Lucy Lawless
They either overcompensate for the way they feel and are incredibly sycophantic or incredibly brusque in order to prove they don't think you're superior.
Lawless Lucy quotes
The role was very physically challenging and I am not athletic and have never wanted to be. I hate it in fact. I don't go to gyms and for me to have to stay in shape for the role became mind over matter.
Lawless
Growing up, I looked up to real women. I didn't go in for hero worship and I still don't. Everybody has feet of clay.
Lawless Lucy
At first, being a female role model really terrified me. But it hasn't turned out to be an awful burden. I get a lot of letters from women who tell me that, after watching Xena, they have bought the Harley-Davidson they always wanted or left an abusive relationship.
Lucy Lawless
So yes, the roles are getting more and more like me. But that's because Xena was so entirely unlike me. Most people aren't really aware of that.




Lucy Lawless quotes
When you decide to become an opera singer, it's a commitment that allows nothing else to interfere. Even your family - and I have a young daughter - has to take second place.
Lucy Lawless
My voice likes rock music. My problem is, I can do a lot of things, but I have to find my own voice.
