New Zealand representative Lucy Lawless Xena is immortalized in “Xena: Warrior Princess”.

In the plot, a female warrior seeks redemption from various crimes committed in the past. On his way, the narrator Gabriel appears, who, despite her lack of skill in fighting, is distinguished by her intelligence.

Lawless’ performance has been praised to this day. However, what many don’t know is that the star didn’t live out the character in the plot.

according to screen rantBritish actress Vanessa Angel It was the first choice of directors to live Warrior. However, due to health issues, she was unable to travel to New Zealand, the country where the filming took place.

In addition to Angel, four other actresses were also on the list to star in the series. However, living in New Zealand made it easier for Lawless to score scenes, and she was finally chosen for the role.

It is worth noting that the actress previously appeared in the movie “Hercules: The Legendary Journey” starring Kevin Sorbo. From it came out the hugely successful score that fans have loved to this day.

In all, “Xena” won 6 seasons, officially ending on June 18, 2001.
