Lucy Lawless career,personal life
Lawless was born in Auckland, New Zealand, and is the daughter of Julie Ryan, a teacher, and Frank Ryan, a former banker and mayor of Mount Albert. She has six siblings–four brothers and one sister and rather funnily describes her own family as “this big, sprawling Irish Catholic family.” Regarding her singing career, Lawless first appeared in her maiden musical at the precocious age of 10. She soon began acting in secondary school. She attended Marist College in New Zealand.Touching into her personal life, Lawless, at the age of 18, like most other youngsters from New Zealand do, travelled through Europe and Australia for her overseas experience. It was there where she met her future husband, Garth Lawless. Her acting career finally kicked off when she made her debut on a television series for two and a half seasons as a cast member of the New Zealand’s sketch comedy series “Funny Business”. Following that, she studied drama at the William Davis Centre for Actors Study in Vancouver, Canada.
Xena Warrior Princess
It was in 1994 when Lawless first appeared in Hercules and the Amazon Women which later became the television pilot for Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. In that very episode, she played the role of a man-hating Amazon named Lysia. Lawless went on to play another character named Lyla in the first season episode of “As Darkness Falls.” It was as a matter of chance that she received her best-known role to date when she was offered to play a villainous role of warrior woman named Xena in the episode “The Warrior Princess,” which was aired for the first time in March 1995.Lawless is also involved in charity and activism, rounding off her global distinction as an actress, musician and also an activist. She is a member of the board of trustees of the StarShip Foundation, which is a charity arm of the Starship Children’s Health (hospital). In 2009, Lawless then became a climate ambassador for the Greenpeace “Sign On” campaign. Continuing her role as an activist, Lawless, in February 2012, along with five other Greenpeace activists, boarded an oil drilling ship at Port Taranaki, New Zealand, and remained onboard for a whopping 77 hours to stop it leaving for the Arctic.
