Lucy Lawless thinks that the next Xena should be a black lesbian


The original Warrior Princess considers it to be necessary for the rebooted programme to have a black lesbian main character. The popular serial of 90S , is expected to be relaunched next year and the show’s former star has said she wants to see the show go further than before. Lawless wishes Xena to fall in love with her best friend Gabrielle: “Now they need to make them an interracial couple,” she said. “Black Xena!”

The scenewriter Liz Friedman considers this idea something new, something they never did before: “The studio was very worried about it, and I was the one saying to them ‘Guys, no one’s ever gonna think they’re gay.’ Because my now wife, then girlfriend, and I would go to the supermarket and I am a white Jew, she’s Creole and people would look at us, and it was clear that we were connected in some way, and they’d go ‘Are you two sisters?’ That f*ck each other! What was bizarre to me that lesbians were so invisible in the real world, but then something just happened and I just assumed no one would ever think that about Xena and Gabrielle.”
