    The first picture just SCREAMS She-Ra to me.

    I never thought that Lucy could carry the blonde look so well.

    YES, she'd make a GREAT She-Ra.

    If He-Man is in the movie, we should get Kevin Sorbo to play him too.

    Believe it or not, Lucy is a natural blonde. The black hair that she is more familiar with from Xena is the dye job. Now that she doesn't have to play Xena any more, she has let her hair go back to its natural color.

    You can see this in some of her earlier appearances in Hercules.

    I definitely think she could play She-Ra. She's already got the "female action hero" thing down cold.

    So weird, I was thinking about this last nite while watching her on Celebrity Duets! I think she would indeed make a fantastic She-Ra, but if there was an Adora in the movie, I'd want her MYP style, and have a younger actress portraying Adora

    10 years ago, maybe ...


    She's pushing 40 (She-Ra/Adora is supposed to be nineteen.)

    I think she'd make a better Sorceress (She's got the accent AND stage presence to boot! )

    ^ Hey, now ... let's not rag on Christina.


    I think she did well, given the material she had to work with.

    Actually I forgot who played The Sorceress in the movie.

    But to be fair, I hated that outfit that was used in the movie.

    When I first saw this thread's title I said "no way", but the first pic does give her a She-Ra-esque quality. If she got in the gym and toned up a bit, I think she'd make a decent She-Ra. My only other fear is that we'd wind up with those cheesy Xena fight scenes and stunts, but that probably had more to do with the show's budget and fight coordinator moreso than Lucy.

    That was a deliberate decision on the part of that show's production design crew. They *wanted* those scenes to be cheesy. It was supposed to be funny. It had nothing to do with Lucy herself at all - although she thought the fights were kind of funny when she saw them. You should hear her laugh on the commentary of the Xena DVD's. She can't bag on the special effects too much, though. Her husband Rob Tapert was the producer of the show.

    while she does look better in the two picture examples above..... no way!!!! please no!!!! I've always thought she was way too butch in Xena to be attractive (at least, to me...)

    I honestly can't name a celebrity that I think would suit the role.... I think that it would be best played by a no name actress....

    That was Christina Pickles who, unless I miss my guess, also appeared in Friends.

    I agree with you on hating the movies outfit. Plus, she basically had a teeny weeny role.

    As for Lucy, Lady A, I agree with you! I think Lucy can do anything. She's a great actress and has proven so by playing many different roles even on Xena. Not to mention the fact that she is sooo different in person from the way she is as Xena. Now THAT's acting!

    God is she gorgeous!

    Where is the manly resemblance? I do not see it at all. Do you have her confused with Demi Moore maybe? I think you do.

    i think Lucy Lawless could do a fairly decent job as She-Ra, to me she has the chiselled/toned, athletic look and is not too manly or whatever...i DO think she is probably too old at this point, so i voted no on the poll...if they had done She-Ra at the begining of Xena she would deffinately be great for it...if they did an MYP type version of She-Ra, where Adora is much younger and a different actress then Lucy could probably still get away with doing She-Ra, although i still think she might be pushing things in the age factor...

    that's why i agree with others and think she would make an AWESOME Sorceress, i really think she has the acting chops to pull off this character that needs a certain, subtle SOMETHING to REALLY work... i'd cast her TOMORROW for that role and you'd better believe she would have at LEAST the Filmation bird of prey helmet and wings...

    I was totally about to say NO!!! when I read thesubject, until I sawthese pics! Gone is the bad bang black hair... the moon face... I think yes! I'll take heras She-Ra. My other pick for a good She-ra has always been Trish Stratus, but Lucy trumps her by having acting abilities.

    Excellent actress, but yeah, Lucy's getting up there in age. Also, I think her facial structure is too harsh for a character like She-Ra.

    Her natural hair color is actually reddish-brown.

    a little off topic...but, i was watching the Aeon Flux trailor and i was thinking maybe Charlize would make a decent She-Ra...she has some acting chops and i'd actually let her play Adora IF you were to do it that way...
