Renee Video Interview - Amazon Video On Demand's Video on Demand has an interview with Renee from the SciFi Party July 26, 2008 - J6 BAR at HOTEL SOLAMAR, 435 6th Avenue, San Diego, CA

2008 Interview Vault: Xena's Best Friend Looks Back
by Stephanie Reid-Simons on December 31, 2008
So when Renee O'Connor walked down the purple carpet at a Sci Fi Channel party last summer, she probably didn't expect anything but polite hellos from the reporters on the line. She was promoting some new project, but really, the only thought going through my primordial fangirl brain was "It's Gabrielle!" (You know, the trusty sidekick to Xena, Warrior Princess!) I had recently watched some first-season Xena episodes at Amazon Video On Demand, so I was eager to talk about a show that became such a blast to the zeitgeist ... sheesh, was it really 13 years ago? Anyway, Renee may look a little scared during this interview. Perhaps that's because I greeted her by singing a few bars of "Joxer the Mighty," thereby proving myself to be not just a fan, but one of those obsessive types. Anyway, here's what she had to say about the show and its impact on her and others. -- Stephanie Reid-Simons, Amazon Video On Demand

Kiss You All Over

Jed Sura and Iris in new YouTube Video
Jed Sura (Renee's other half) has a video mocumentary up on YouTube which is in
two parts. Whilst the first part is someone amusing - poor guy who wants to be a jock but isn't cut out for it - the second part is the interesting bit. Young Iris makes her "acting" debut. Now there's a gorgeous little girl. She stars with her dad as part of his "team". Very cute.

Part 1
A comical journey on the life and rise to semi-stardom of Donnie LeDroit.

Part 2
Part two of the chronicles of Donnie LeDroit.

The videos were shot by Renee.
