Who doesn’t love Lucy Lawless? This gorgeous New Zealand-born actress with a sunny (but fierce) personality is a pop culture icon, and she can steal any show in only a few fleeting moments on screen, as she proves in TOP OF THE LAKE; she’s got the charisma to wrap the audience around her little finger in seconds.
