Four days of action in defence of the Arctic

Lucy and her team were arrested last night.

We need to support her. Even if you don't believe in climate change, you can still support our very own Sparty actress.

She has done so much for this show. Not just the fact that she's on it and doing a phenomenal job. But many of her fans that started watching because of her....she has a huge fanbase that contributes to the ratings of this show in addition to promoting it.

All the promotional touring she did.....doing interviews for it the last two years. She did the most interviews.  Remember the support she had for Andy when he was sick, and the support she gave to Liam when he got the part. Her beautiful words when Andy died. Her helping to set up a trust fund for Andy's family.

Her kindness with all the fans always. She's done so much for this show. If you have a Twitter, a few kind words of support would be great: @RealLucyLawless
-And if you wish you can: Sign up to save the Arctic
-Read this blog post where I write more about Lucy and her protest: Lucy Lawless Stop Shell #savethearctic


Video description: On 24 Feb 2012 seven people including actor Lucy Lawless scaled the 50 meter drill tower on a drillship commissioned by Shell to drill for oil in the Arctic. They set up camp at the very top of the ship's drilling derrick and barricaded the access ladder. There they stayed for four days and three nights to prevent the ship from leaving for the Arctic. With phone cameras, a laptop and a solar panel they proceeded to speak to the world via a 24/7 live feed on the web and the response from around the world was overwhelming. Just before their eventual arrest on the fourth day Lucy Lawless summed up the impact of this action in this tweet: Seven of us came up the tower on Shell's drillship but 4 days later 130,000 will come down. In solidarity we can #savethearctic. By the time they did come down over 135,000 people had email Shell demanding an end to its Arctic oil drilling.

Lucy Lawless Stop Shell #savethearctic

Lucy's tweet about her peaceful protest on board a Shell rig.



Sign up to save the Arctic

Video Description: http://greenpeace.org/savethearctic - On 24 Feb 2012 in the Port of Taranaki, New Zealand seven Greenpeace activists including actor Lucy Lawless scaled the derrick on a drillship commissioned by Shell to drill for oil in the Arctic.



Our very own Lucretia in a protest. Standing up for what she believes is right. Even though it may break some rules and laws. Going up against the powerhouses, wow Spartacus is amazing! I mean Lucy :) See any similarities? I do. The root of things......of doing what you believe is the right thing.

Taking some criticism and being made fun of around the net. Hm... hasn't every person in past history whom has ever taking a stance gotten the same treatment. Now we look back and they are great! Oh, she's just an actress trying to get 15 min I've heard. Um she's already famous. And is a successful working actress. And why aren't actresses allowed to support a cause anyways? She's a person just like the rest of us. She's allowed to support causes and charities, and have opinions just as we all are.

As a longtime fan, I can tell you Lucy has always been helping. From her Starship charity, to Greenpeace work, to raising money to help after the Christchurch quake, to saying the most beautiful words about Andy Whitfield after he passed and getting a fund set up to help his family. Maybe she shouldn't have ever done any of that, eh...?

Whether you believe in climate change or not. (personally I do). You must remember Lucy's heart is in the right place. There's no meanness. There's no nastiness. This is not an attempt to rally herself for movie parts.    I mean my god, the Rena oil spill happened right there in NZ which must have had a huge impact on her decision to protest. She's simply doing what she believes in, like our very own Sparty!

How about showing our very own Sparty actress some support and love just as she has always done with the fans.  Go Lucy!

Dustin Clare Returns as Gannicus in Spartacus: Vengeance

Interview with Dustin readers:

Dustin Clare Returns as Gannicus in Spartacus: Vengeance

.................

Can you talk about any challenges that Gannicus faces as a free man?

DC: Just getting some cash together to get a meal (he jokes) as well as looking for a roof over his head.

Gannicus has really been sort of a journeyman, and in between the prequel and Vengeance he’s done a lot of traveling and discovering and is still very much someone who’s the master of his own destiny. I also see my character as a sort of anti-hero. Unfortunately, I can't really tell you how the writers have brought him back into the series. That’s kind of a major plot point. He's still the Gannicus we left in some ways, but also he's definitely had some time to mature and see the world. He very much enjoys being a free man, too......Read Full Interview - The Morton Report

What's coming up on Spartacus? — Derek

NATALIE: Is Lucretia out of mourning already? The widowed domina will be getting very cozy with a new man — a Roman, not a slave this time — during a decadent party held at the former House of Batiatus. Could this be one of the love interests Lucy Lawless teased? source

Lucy Lawless Gives 'Spartacus: Vengeance' Scoop, 'Xena' Movie Update

Lucy interview with Huff Post TV:

Are you coming back for Season 3?

It's too spoiler-y to say what happens to her. It could be for three quarters of it, it could be for all or it could be two episodes. I'm not going to say. You're going to know Lucretia's next big plan by the end of this season and where she's heading. Lucretia's future will be revealed! She has a new status. source

Sounds intriguing readers!

Episode 3 Scene Clip "To Feel A Child Grow Within You"

Spoilers From Michael Ausiello

Ask Ausiello spoilers out today readers. Oooh, this sounds good:


Question: I got hooked on Spartacus: Blood and Sand last week on On Demand. I’m still withholding judgment on Liam McIntrye as the new lead, but any spoilers for Spartacus: Vengeance? —Courtney

Ausiello: The Tasmanian Devil is going to take possession of Mira’s (Katrina Law) body in Episode 4, giving rise to one of the most spectacular girl-on-boy(s) killing sprees I’ve ever seen. There are also some juicy Crixus/Lucretia scenes coming up, as well as an answer to this question: What does it look like when someone has their lower lip sliced off slowly by a sword. source
