Rose McIver in “iZombie”

Rose’s reunion with ‘Xena’

At the recent Fan Expo convention in Canada, two actresses from New Zealand  got to hang out again. “iZombie’s” Rose McIver shared her photo with former “Xena” actress Lucy Lawless on Instagram Stories.

McIver wrote, “First role I felt like I was an actor was playing little Xena back in the day. Always thrilled to see this fellow Kiwi and all-around legend. A true idol of mine.”

The younger actress appeared in “Xena” in 1999 as Daphne, whose body was inhabited by the warrior’s soul.

Over the years, McIver recalled in interviews that she enjoyed the part, as she was able to do stunts, as well as Xena’s famous war cry.

McIver, 29, was in the 1993 film “The Piano,” and eventually starred in 2009’s “The Lovely Bones.”
