Lucy Lawless Revels In Over The Top Spartacus Role - Detroit Free Press 21 January 2011

The campy legend of Lucy Lawless' iconic small-screen heroine "Xena: Warrior Princess" is ancient history, but her cunning and power-hungry turn as the lustful Lucretia in Starz's ever-evolving fantasy dynasty "Spartacus" is one tasty part.

"There are plenty of other things I would do to show my other sides, but most people couldn't imagine me out of this genre," she said. "Besides, there really isn't anything better than 'Spartacus.' "

The New Zealand-bred Lawless, 42, who married Michigan-made Rob Tapert in 1998, said she can't wait for fans of "Spartacus: Blood and Sand" (which debuted in January 2010) to witness the new six-part prequel, "Spartacus: Gods of the Arena," when it premieres tonight. "You really have to let people know to watch right to the very last drop," she said.

Still not convinced? Let Lawless -- who talked to the Free Press last week after Starz announced a second season of "Blood and Sand" but before Liam McIntyre ("The Pacific") was announced as the new Spartacus -- pique your imagination on what she declares is "the most exciting show ever."
