You could hardly expect the chakram-wielding veteran of “Xena the Warrior Princess” and star of “buckets-of-blood” “Spartacus” to be squeamish  about being sentenced over a protest. Lawless has consistently said she wasn’t sorry for the incident that led to her run-in with the law. As the Los Angeles Times’ Christie D’Zurilla reported in June, Lawless was arrested in connection with a February  2012 Greenpeace protest.  She pleaded guilty at that time to charges of unlawfully being on a ship. The actress and six other activists boarded the Arctic oil-drilling ship the Noble Discoverer, docked at New Zealand’s Port Taranaki.
