Lucy Lawless Joins Ash vs Evil Dead Cast


Deadline reports Lucy Lawless will be joining the cast of Ash vs Evil Dead:

Spartacus alumna Lucy Lawless is returning to Starz with a co-starring role opposite Bruce Campbell in the premium channel’s 10-episode half-hour original series Ash vs Evil Dead, sequel to the cult horror film franchise The Evil Dead. The series, executive produced by Sam Raimi and Rob Talpert, is set to film on location in Lawless’ native New Zealand this spring and premiere in late 2015. Lawless will play Ruby, a mysterious figure who is myopic in her quest to hunt down the source of the recent Evil outbreaks. The only problem: She believes that Ash (Campbell) is the cause of it all.

This marks Lawless’ third series with her husband, Tapert, and Raimi, who also executive produced Spartacus and the series that made Lawless a star, Xena: Warrior Princess. She also appeared in Raimi’s feature Spider-Man and Tapert’s Boogeyman. She’s repped by APA.

Bruce Campbell Talks Ash vs Evil Dead

Evil Dead

Dread Central recently caught up with Bruce Campbell who sheds some more details on Ash vs Evil Dead.

With the hotly anticipated television continuation of the Evil Dead film series “Ash vs. Evil Dead” in pre-production, we caught up exclusively this week with series executive producer and star Bruce Campbell, and fans can rejoice because the boomstick is back in a BIG way.

Having had a chance to read an early version of the pilot episode last year, I can concur. In it we are introduced to a nomadic Ash, a figure who’s not only haunted by traumatic memories but also terrorized by the unwelcome continuance of Deadite attacks, which have followed him to the myriad Midwestern trailer parks he’s been forced to call home. In an effort to eke out an existence and in keeping with his previous choice of career, the character spends his days working at Ted’s Superclub as a stock room trainee and, in true Ash fashion, his evenings chasing skirt in roadside bars.

With ten episodes ordered, Campbell told us that principal photography is slated for this April in New Zealand with a planned series debut on Starz and promised of his portrayal of the horror icon he helped to create (spoilers follow), “I’m bringing everything to the table. It’s a feisty version of Ash, who’s grizzled and just wants to be left alone.”
