Image of the Day: Here's our first look at Lucy Lawless in Ash vs. Evil Dead

In the wake of our bloody groovy first look at iconic Evil Dead and Army of Darkness character Ash Williams (Bruce Campbell) — and a first awesome trailer — we now have our first (soot-covered?) peek at Xena herself in her Ash vs. Evil Dead role.

Lucy Lawless (Spartacus, Salem) will play Ruby, who’ll not only hunt Deadites to rid the world of the new plague — like Ash and his two sidekicks (and fellow Value Stop employees) Pablo (Ray Santiago) and Kelly (Dana Delorenzo) will do, but she’ll also have Ash set in her sights. 

Described as a mysterious figure blinded to everything in her quest to hunt down the cause of the recent Evil outbreaks, you can bet your comic-book collection Lucy will go after Ash, as she believes he's the cause behind the new Deadite mayhem. "She’s a bad bitch, and she’s stalking Ash Williams," Lawless said. "She’s got a big chip on her shoulder and a hot obsession."

The 10-part half-hour series Ash vs. Evil Dead will premiere Saturday, Oct. 31, at 9 p.m. ET on Starz.
