From TV Squad: Our Bad! The Women We Left Off the Top 100 Female Characters List
"Gabrielle, 'Xena: Warrior Princess' | Played by Renee O'Connor
There would be no 'Xena' without Gabrielle, that's for sure. The character was played expertly by Renee O'Connor. She effortlessly played the emotional backbone of the series. Gabrielle went from peasant girl to kick-butt warrior before viewers' eyes. The success of the show and Xena's iconic status would've never happened if she never had Gabrielle."
