. Lucy Lawless
was born on March 29, 1968 Mountains of Alberta, that under Auckland, New Zealand, under the name Lucille Francesca Ryan
. It was the fifth child of Frank and Julie Ryan and the eldest of the daughters of other. Her first real adventure was a trip to Europe (Vienna, Florence, Rome). She was then only 15 years old and she went with her mother.
"Florence was a very romantic place for a young girl like me, even despite the fact that I traveled with my mother," remembers Lucy
. "I have always found the right words for all the boys with whom I have met". The same applies to its second trip to Europe in the coming years. "All New Zealanders think about how to escape from their small country on the edge of the world, so they go on trips. Australians, as we do the same, and travel the globe until the student has not yet run out of money. "
. These journeys continued, until one day, while in Europe with his friend Garth, Lucy
did not discover that she is pregnant ...
. It is time to return to New Zealand and to stay with his family to raise her daughter to Garth
. Daisy was my most pleasant mistake I've ever done, "says Lucy Lawless
, looking at his cutie. Lucy
married a Hart and they settled in Oakland, where Lucy
decided to start his acting career. Her first experience was the role of commercial television - it was shot with a group of actors in the comedy show "Funny Business". She has repeatedly appeared on Australian television, until one is an American actress (whose name is, unfortunately, never learned) is not advised her to become a professional in his career. Lucy
moved to Vancouver, Canada, and entered the actor's center of William Davis (institution, familiar to fans film "The X-Files").
Eight months later, she returns home and works on the show travels to New Zealand. A few years later she learns that the team should be withdrawn world-famous film "The Legendary Journeys of Hercules" holds casting for one small vtoroplanovuyu role, and Lucy
decides to try his luck ...
. On the role of Xena in three episodes of "Hercules" was chosen as an American actress Vanessa Angel (TV series "Miracles of Science")
. However, upon commencement of filming these episodes, she became ill and producers of the film have decided to try Lucy
in this role. Her success as Xena has led the producers of the film, Sam Raimi and Robert Teypert, decided to withdraw the new film "Xena: Warrior Princess", having gone so far already for the sixth season.
. Discussing all the irony of how she has this role and has become so famous, Lucy
said: "I thought that this character can be a very successful"
. She smiled and added: "If you're a child who grew up in the reeds and grass, you can not expect anything else - the same American show, how it might not be popular?.. I was so naive, ignorant, and just a miracle that it all turned out exactly. This happens once in a million lives. "
On the question of whether learned actress in Zena, Lucy
said: "Discipline is probably. I do not think about Zene, as a character. You see, when you call me Zenoy ... In general, it is part of me, but not all I. It is undoubtedly one hero, which is based on truth, it is the one who would have been me, if grown in such a situation.
. When I asked if Lucy
is not afraid to be as aggressive as Xena, she confidently replied: "No, I'm not going so
. Why not? Because it is a state of mind. I do not concentrate on this. Above all, Xena gives me a lot of different characters - I play a farce, a comedy play, as well as many other characters. Plus, there are no other roles such complexity. As one guy is an intelligent show, which is not meant to be a. But it is precisely this.
The role of Xena - a role that in addition, that the actress had brought success and celebrity status, has changed the lives of most actresses. Three years ago, she and her beloved childhood Hart divorced. Subsequently, removing the "Zenu" Robert Teypert, executive producer of "Hercules" and "Xena", truly fell in love with Lucy
, and they married in the thirtieth birthday of Lucy Lawless
, 29 March 1998.
. It was at the same time, when Lucy
discovered how the success of the film and her marriage changed her view of his career
. "Yes, this is true," said Lucy
, with a clear New Zealand accent. "I do not know it because I'm married. That time I just turned 30. Now I'm at the crossroads of his life. "
"I am sure that others too have gone through this. I wanted to succeed and wanted to become a star. What then? Fame does not fill you with joy! Do you have money, but they do not fill you with all joy. Now I can dress well, next to me a man of my dreams, happy, healthy daughter, the work of which you can only dream ... Why am I not happy as an angel ?"...
She pauses to allow the listener to reflect on her words. "I think this is what all this is not something for which we live. I did a lot of soul searching since my birth until her marriage. Once, in the darkest moments of my life, I was given a cassette of the American guru of "saving himself" on behalf of Tony Robbins. You know, a guy with big teeth? ... Then God changed my life. "
"I knew that we set the atoms, but who we really are - our souls?" Our souls are immaterial. What is our destiny, if we once again turn into atoms, and dissolve in space? "
But then I realized that I can donate their skills to other. I am not a doctor and I can not save the life of someone. But recognizing their talents, giving himself to others and living in relationship with other human beings, we all grow. Space is more! "
So now I know I should do something good by using this phenomenon known. I do not dwell on what has made. A lot of famous people just came and went, but I want to continue this journey through his life. But do not know yet what it will lead.
And how this new attitude towards life has changed her? "Significantly reduced tension, become less stressful," says frankly Lucy
. "If I had to miss some steep and posh party to drive across town, pick up her husband and go with him somewhere - this is important and correct, and I will do so."
"The main thing to be with their loved. This is real people and not any party with strangers, and that means that I'm much more happy person. I'm still waiting for the heavens will indicate my real purpose in life and I'll be much happier doing its real business. " Lucy Lawless
is now happy at work, in marriage, the mother of their children. She has successfully passed the test when she worked in New Zealand, and the husband at the same time remained in the U.S.. She confirmed that it was a good test of the stability of their marriage. As Lucy
says, "Rob is there more often, we see each other for about nine and a half months a year, talking to two or three times a day. But not for long. "
. "... fame - is a natural attribute of what I'm doing, but it's not the end result and I do not dwell on this ..."
