The original Lucy Lawless, who starred in the first season of "Xena:Warrior Princess" was not only younger, but considerably taller than the person who appeared using that name, in the following seasons. Not only that, the second "Lucy Lawless" has a lankier body, and a more angular face. In the final episode, (the fifth season), for many of the closeups, she didn't use botox. In that same episode, there were film clips where she did. The switch was made after the original Lucy Lawless supposedly, had a horseback riding accident, and was said to be in hospital for a couple of months, during the second season of the show.
