We love Lucy Lawless as Lucretia in “Spartacus: Vengeance” with all of our hearts, but that is hardly news. We’ve loved her since her epic run in “Xena: Warrior Princess.” Gosh, we miss that show. We spoke to Lawless back at the Winter Press Tour and mentioned how much people would love to see a movie version of the show. She told us that she was happy moving forward and expected that they’d cast someone like Megan Fox now. (No!) She also said that she loved playing that role.
Well, during a protest over an oil tanker in New Zealand, Lawless strapped herself to the top of the ship and broke out the Xena battle cry, according to TMZ. Lawless has been tweeting her stance, saying, “I’m on one of the oldest drill rigs on the planet and it’s heading to the Arctic. Tell Shell to stop
#savetheartic http://greenpeace.org/savethearctic” and “Oil Scientists say they do not have the technology to clean up an oilspill in the Arctic. #savethearctic“
Hear Lucy in action below. As she told the site, “We know we’re going to be arrested … but … this is a moral decision for us.” Lucy Lawless, Warrior Princess! We love Lucy!
