- A former Mrs New Zealand, Lucy refuses to wear the crown of charity queen, even though her contributions to worthy causes here and overseas are boundless.
She's not only on the board of the Starship Foundation, but she has done work to support breast cancer research, prevent child abuse, and promote breastfeeding. She made a documentary for World Vision on the plight of Bangladesh, and sponsors a child there. Last year she supported fundraising efforts for New Orleans, after being evacuated from the film set of tele-horror movie Vampire Bats when Hurricane Katrina hit.
"I don't really think of myself as a charity queen. It's easy to help, because it feels right. You're doing God's work," Lucy says. "I don't know if it's particularly my Catholic upbringing, but my mother was a big influence - she was always bringing home people who had nowhere else to go. At the Ryans' place, it would never be Christmas if you didn't have a few batty old ladies with outrageous behavioural disorders.
"I'm just like Mum. I have three homeless people living in my house at the moment two Kiwis and a girl from New Orleans who are all starving actors.

"I have no intention of ever becoming an A-list celebrity. I want to be an A-grade human being first. 1 know I still exist even if I'm not in the magazine pages, and that's why I'm not jealous of anyone in Hollywood. 1 went away for years after Xena, and I know I'm a way better person for it."
