Been a big week for Lucy Lawless, a few days ago the announcement arrived that she would be joining the cast of the WGN series ‘Salem’ and today Starz announced she’s also on board to play a major part in their upcoming series ‘Ash Vs. Evil Dead’.
The lovely Ms. Lawless will portray Ruby, the press release explains her as follows:
“Ruby is a mysterious figure who is myopic in her quest to hunt down the source of the recent Evil outbreaks. The only problem: she believes that Ash (Bruce Campbell) is the cause of it all.”
Sounds like good old Ash is going to be on the run a lot!
Lucy is no stranger to Sam Raimi and company having worked with him on Xena for all those season. Kind of nice to see the team all back together again.
Filming is slated to start up anytime now in New Zealand for a October release on the Starz network.
