Lucy Lawless pleads guilty to oil ship protest

Actor Lucy Lawless and seven other Greenpeace protestors have pleaded guilty to unlawfully boarding a ship after appearing in the Auckland District Court this morning.

The group originally faced burglary charges but those were today withdrawn.

Lawless and seven activists carried out a four-day protest aboard oil drilling ship the Noble Discovery in February.

The group were arrested and charged with burglary.

The eight defendants have been granted bail and will reappear on September 14.

Outside court today Lawless said she was not sure if the impending conviction would affect her ability to travel with her job.

“I don’t believe so, but we’ll see how that plays out.

She has no regrets about her actions.

“Certainly I stand by what we did and our need to do it. Peaceful action is the only way forward." Click here to find out more!

But she is not in a hurry to do it again.

“I’ve got no plans to reprise my role on an oil rig, but I had to do what I had to do.”

Dear Xena,

Thanks for saving “Stretch Dude” and “Clobber Girl”.

Has Lawless had any work since her model was boxed up on Battlestar Galactica?

When I was at sea about 30 years ago, I think the A.B. Sailors would have had some intimate fun with the girls they would never have forgotten!!!

Thanks smokingfrog. Another showbiz imbecile:
She has no regrets about her actions. "Certainly I stand by what we did and our need to do it. Peaceful action is the only way forward." ...But she is not in a hurry to do it again. "I've got no plans to reprise my role on an oil rig, but I had to do what I had to do."

She’s done three seasons of Spartacus and was tremendous in all. But what is it with liberal actors and stupidity anyway. It’s like God gives them this incredible creative ability but has to take something away for balance. And that something is always IQ points.

Every time she gets on a plane or starts her car, she proclaims herself a hypocrite.

If you use petroleum products, you can't object to the wells, now can you? Or is it just that you want them in someone else's yard?

I've known a few actor types (non-Hollywood), and what struck me most about them was how impressionable they were. If they read it in a script, see it on stage, or watch it in a movie, for them, it is as good as real. They are perfect vessels for propaganda.

She and Joxer were helping Falafel bring a wagon of food and drink, to the ship, so they could hold out against a siege long enough for Aries to relent, and...

Personally, I always preferred Callisto, but then again I have a thing for crazy chicks.

No way, Gabrielle was cute...but she just talked too much! Warrior women in sexy armor are just hot! (full disclosure...former SCA heavy, former FRP gamer (before computer games), Lord of Rings fan...etc etc).

Absolutely! Callisto was by far the hottest babe ever on Xena. I saw her later on an episode of 7th Heaven as a teacher and she was even more sexy then.
