and her role
Renee O'Conner is also someone who deserves mention.
The story is that I was dealing with her manager over a different
actor and her name came up. I had watched XENA because of producers
Sam and Robert coming to MSU, knowing Bruce Campbell from my
director buddy Mike Kallio and Lucy Lawless.
So Renee read the script for a small female role as most of the
major roles had been cast. She really liked the script but wanted
something meaty. It was moments after I told her manager that we
would try to use her on a future project that I started thinking,
"What character(s) did I write as a man that could be played by a
woman?" When the character of LITTLE JACK crossed my mind it was a
perfect fit. Renee was called and the rest is history.
She is a powerful supporting actress in this film playing an
outlaw with a motley gang and her fans will love her bad side in
this gritty mountain story. She hangs with the roughest of them and
would anyone expect anything less from Xena's former partner in
crime? I luv ya Renee and she handled that rifle with the same
expertise as that bo staff!
