Lucy Lawless on telling Margaret Moth's story on film

From Afternoons, 3:10 pm on 14 May 2024

The email to actor Lucy Lawless came out of the blue. Would she like to do a documentary about legendary CNN photojournalist, Kiwi Margaret Moth? After years in warzones all over the world, even after a sniper's bullet in Sarajevo shattered her jaw, Moth felt compelled to show the world the reality of war until she died of cancer in 2010. Her best friend and heir to her estate called to ask if the former Princess Warrior would tell the story of a warrior of courage under fire. Lawless immediately said yes and makes her directorial debut with the documentary, Never Look Away.
