'Xena' Actor Dies

 

Thirty-eight year old Kevin Smith, the New Zealand actor who played the war god Ares in the hit television series 'Xena,' has died from head injuries received from a fall while working on a movie in China.

The New Zealand government honored Smith posthumously, saying he was "known not only for his enormous talent and amazing beauty, but also for his intelligence and self-effacing humor."

Smith had been scheduled to begin filming on a Bruce Willis movie next month.

  XENA HELP!  
 
But, can't Xena go to Hades and help Ares get out?

  oops. meant to vote 'very good'  
 
Ick, I meant to vote very good to ccounterbalance the "very bads" which I felt are there incorrectly. I accedently voted very bad and it won't let me change it.

  Thanks  
 
For the thought, Qender. :)

I would be very interested if someone could give me a reason as to why this title is misleading.

  It is Misleading cuz...  
 
'Xena' didn't die, all though the title makes it seem like it. An Actor From 'Xena' Dies - would be a more fitting title. Not that I voted against it...

  If  
 
It had been Lucy Lawless herself, I'd have written 'Xena Actress' or, as Quender said, 'Xena Star'.

  actor is substituted for actress  
 
Many people in the entertainment world refer to women as actors just as they do to men.

  It's not misleading  
 
An actor from the show 'Xena' died. Where's the misleading part? If you jump to conclusions that's your fault, not SandraG's. Some of you are a little ridiculous.

  I agree, Ploss  
 
I agree, which is why I just gave it a very good rating, however, the story is 15 months old now, so I don't suppose it really matters too much anymore. :-)

  Wow  
 
I don't even know how I got that story to come up. I think I just start reading stuff and don't think to check the date sometimes. Still though, it wasn't misleading and I gave it a very good as well. I've seen the show a couple times and know the main character and one or two others but that's it. He could've died yesterday for all I knew.

  @ ploss  
 
You saw the story in the "latest events" column on the right. It was there because I had just rated it.
I wasn't at SN at the time of his death, and I really enjoyed the actor's work, so (in boredom) I searched to see if anyone had reported it here last year.

  Thank you :)  
 
I appreciate the good ratings - even after all this time :)
