Most people know or rather remember Lucy Lawless as Xena warrior princess which aired in syndication from September 4, 1995, until June 18, 2001.



However I remember her (obviously) as Lucretia from the over the top, blood soaked, guts wrenched, violence and nudity filled  – balls to the wall- fun guilty pleasure that was the Starz series; Spartacus:Blood and Sand and it’s  prequel Spartacus: Gods of the Arena and it’s follow up second season Spartacus:Vengeance which ran in 2010, 2011 and 2012 respectively.

And she has now been added to the cast of the new upcoming Starz series “Ash vs the Evil Dead” which is planned to begin filming later in the spring where Lawless will play a character named Ruby a mysterious figure who is determined to hunt down the source of the recent outbreaks of evil. Unfortunately for Ash, Ruby believes that the outbreaks are his fault. The series will pick up decades after the film “Army of Darkness”  and will consist of 10 one-half hour episodes.
