The dwarf planet Eris was originally informally named Xena, with its moon nicknamed Gabrielle (after Xena's sidekick). The official names, Eris and Dysnomia, refer to Greek goddesses associated with lawlessness, another wink to Lucy Lawless.
A vocal supporter of gay rights, Lawless is considered something of a gay icon. After the cancellation of Xena: Warrior Princess (1995), Lawless has said she considered her character a lesbian. Since that time the actress has also worked to support equal protections for gay and lesbian couples including protesting Proposition 8, which stripped gay and lesbian couples of the right to wed in California.

Lucy suffered a miscarriage immediately following the filming of the last episode of Xena: Warrior Princess (1995).

However, she decided to show up despite the tragic event just a few days earlier and even though Renee was 6 months pregnant with her first baby.
Studied drama at the William Davis Center for Actors Study, under William B. Davis. 
I was black and blue for about two years, but it's paid off tremendously. You know, if you get enough whacks, your reflexes pick up, and I've become quite good - if somebody throws keys or something, I can catch them.
For the first time in my life, I put my body and reputation on the line to stand up for my beliefs and do the right thing. I hope I've encouraged other people to do the same.
I am waiting for a sign that will indicate to me what meaning I must give to my life, but right now my existence is satisfactory.
My plan is to shock people with what I can do, because I've got a few sides to me that I've never used on screen.
We live at the edge of the world, so we live on the edge. Kiwis will always sacrifice money and security for adventure and challenge.
I don't take business seriously, I take acting seriously. I take my job really seriously, but a lot of the job is not about acting, but I don't take business seriously.
Usually? I don't even consider myself usually. Soccer mom, that's what I consider myself. Yeah, I think I'm a funny person. I started out in comedy. You know I remember the moment I realized the value of comedy is when I was eight years old and I was sitting in class and I realized that if I just acted really stupid, I could get away with a lot of stuff. And it would diffuse a lot of tension and the teachers would focus on you. I just found out the value of being a funny dunce at times.
Treat everyone the same until you find out they're an idiot. Lucy Lawless, Starlog - Savage Sword of Xena.
