The last episode of Xena: Warrior Princess will air nation-wide this month. The series featuring a fierce and fearless warrior princess and her side-kick warrior bard is extremely popular for its strong, sympathetic female characters and its creative risk-taking.

Scott Simon talks with Lucy Lawless, the actress who plays Xena, about the show's popularity and the controversies it has inspired.
