Have you ever witnessed a celebrity, greeting guests in a cafe in the attire of a waitress?
I think, you haven’t.
But let me tell you, that the Spartacus: Blood and Sand actress, Lucy Lawless caught the attention of one and all, by turning into a waitress, a few weeks ago.
Just as everything has a reason, Lucy’s move wasn’t an ordinary one either.
In fact, she put on the apron of a waitress, to raise funds for children at Starship Hospital.
Auckland-based Cafe Melba, where the star showed up, took an initiative to donate 50 cents to the children’s fund, for every cup of coffee sold.
The initiative was undertaken to mark Cafe Melba’s 15th inauguration day celebration, and by bringing in Lucy, the café struck gold!
Undoubtedly, it’s a noble move, but more than anything, I would like to applaud Lawless, because she made it to the fund raising event, in spite of her hectic schedule.
I know, all of you adore her, and must be feeling an urge to catch a glimpse of the siren.
No issues, get a download of her acts as Lucretia in Spartacus: Blood and Sand to satiate your wish.
Lawless surpassed the days of Xena: Warrior Princess, when she first played the powerful character of Lucretia. And the new age show lovers know her, because of her compelling acts in the gladiator-based epic tale.
She may have played a strong character in Xena: Warrior Princess, but that doesn’t mean the lady herself is brutal. In fact, in her recently ended show, Spartacus: Blood and Sand, we could witness the softer side of the actress.
And with an act of benevolence, she has once again proved that she is much above the characters she has played.
I would like to see more such philanthropic acts from her, and given the fact that she is already into charity, children in distress might find her beside them, more often than not!
