Lucy Lawless Not Up To Reprise Her Role in ‘Xena’ Reboot

Ever since the announcement that there is going to be a “Xena: The Warrior Princess” reboot, fans are already rooting for Lucy Lawless to reprise her role as the warrior princess. However, it looks like she’s doubtful about her getting a role in the new “Xena” installment. Read below for the full details.

It was in June 2001 when we saw the last of “Xena” and the following month after that, fans are already screaming for the series to get back on TV. And now it took more than a decade to relaunch the series that everybody have grown to love.

Lawless was very positive during her SDCC 2015 interview in July when she was asked about a reunion film.

“No one really dies! Screw her head back on, it’s a bit wonky, and she’s got a really bad attitude since she’s been in a box for 20 years, so they’ve got top get Xena’s mojo back, and go and save the world somehow.” Lawless said.

When she said that, fans felt like she is going to star in the reboot of “Xena.” This raised their hopes up but just recently, Den of Geek was able to interview Lawless. She said that she doesn’t see herself playing Xena again because she couldn’t imagine how it could work with her 47-year old self. She even said that she’s not even sure if she’s up for that. Lawless also said that she never got a call that a reboot is happening but she cleared that that has nothing to do with them.

On the brighter side of things, Lawless hopes that the reboot will give the fans the same thing the original has given them or even more than that. She also hopes that they honor the original intent of the series.
