Xena: Warrior Princess debuts

4 Sep, 1995

The first episode of Xena: Warrior Princess, an action/adventure fantasy television series starring Lawless and co-starring Renee O’Connor and Ted Raimi, premieres on USA Network. The show, created by Rob Tapert and John Schulian, is a spin-off of Hercules: The Legendary Journeys.

Speaking of the role, Lawless says:

Xena’s a mystery. She has a certain mystique, she doesn’t give out too much, you don’t know too much about her thought processes. Which is why you watch, you know, she’s got the devil on her shoulder and you don’t know which way she’s going to flip because she’s always lived at the best on the edge.
