Following appearances in a pair of features and made-for-television films, O'Connor caught the eye of producer Rob Tapert during an audition for a role in the 1994 made-for-television adventure Hercules and the Lost Kingdom, and in addition to also casting her in the direct-to-video sequel to partner Sam Raimi's Darkman, the duo agreed that she would make a great addition to a new show they were producing. Her participation in the hit series Xena: Warrior Princess proved invaluable, and O'Connnor and Lawless' chemistry gelled right from the start. Following the cancellation of Xena: Warrior Princess, O'Connor would continue her feature career with the 2000 comedy drama Rubbernecking. Expand
