Lucy Lawless Hated Doing Action Scenes On Xena: Warrior Princess

Xena:Warrior Princess ran from September of 1995 until June of 2001. The show was a fan-favorite for all 6 seasons, jumping up to cult status early in the first season. Lawless was chosen for the title role after 5 other actresses, including top pick Vanessa Angel, turned down the role.
