Is Xena really coming back? Lucy Lawless: A sexy retrospective

Three words: Xena. Warrior. Princess. That’s what Lucy Lawless will forever be known as. That’s a good thing. And now with rumors of a Xena return she’s the perfect choice for today’s “Throwback Thursday.”

Click on to see Lucy the way we remember her and how she looks today.

Hard to believe, but it’s been going on 12 years now since Xena went off the air, but it was a good six year run and put Lucy on the radar of men and women (especially men) the world over like very few roles on TV ever have before or since. Of course, those who were unfortunate enough to have missed her there may recall her playing Number Three on Battlestar Galactica between 2005 and 2009.

Luckily for a whole new generation of TV viewers they’ve been blessed with Lucy’s very presence in the recurring Spartacus series on Starz playing the sexy Lucretia since 2010 and in a recurring role on Parks and Recreation as Diane Lewis.

Previous Throwbacks: Tiffani Thiessen, Jennifer Love-Hewitt & more!

As you will see from the following photos Lucy is one of those rare women who appears to have gotten sexier with age, proving there’s no doubt that she would definitely be able to pull off a Xena: Warrior Princess reboot. Let’s make it happen, people.
