A New Zealand court has fined Xena: Warrior Princess actress Lucy Lawless and a number of other Greenpeace activists who illegally boarded oil-drilling ship Noble Discoverer last year. Lawless, who pled guilty to the crime, was fined NZ$650 and ordered to complete 120 hours of community work.

Despite her sentence, Lawless revealed that she does not regret her decision to occupy the Noble Discoverer for three days in an attempt to prevent the ship from setting sail to the Arctic.
