GHOST TOWN FAN FICTION

Cheyne Curry

Cheyne Curry (author of Clandestine and The Tropic of Hunter) has posted a bit of fan fiction involving Renée O'Connor's character in Dean Teaster's Ghost Town. It's called Aces and Eights (The Ballad of Little Jack) and is "The story of Little Jack as seen through the crystal blue eyes of Madame Birdie?s prettiest prostitute."

OBSCURUS LUPA

RENÉE ON ACTING

"There are moments when you are acting when you have no separation from the character, and of course the goal is to have that all the time. I think it may be easier on some levels to do the theater because you can sustain this feeling longer without breaking in and out. I love these heightened moments in any capacity I can get them."
- Renée O'Connor (AUSXIP interview)

2014 XENA CALENDARS

2014 Xena Calendars

The official 2014 Xena Calendars can now be ordered from Creation Entertainment. We’ve Got Each Other contains "images of battle, laughter, friendship, fancy costumes, dips in the water, outtakes and an interesting theme for July" and Journey 6 follows the journeys of Xena and Gab through the second half of season six.

HOW LUCY LAWLESS WOULD REVIVE XENA

Speaking to Neil Reid of stuff.co.nz on 4 August, Lucy Lawless suggested this approach to a new Xena series:

"In my dreams it would be that Renee and I, and Ted, who played Joxer, would come back and basically stick Xena's head back on her and go on a quest. At the end you introduce this new Warrior Princess, hand it over and let them run with it. So we could put the family back together, give the fans what they want, reinvigorate the brand and hand it on to a new generation."
