Kiwi Actor Karl Urban has played several roles in XENA. He first appeared in Altared States as the conniving Maell, who fell to a watery death after plotting to kill his brother Icus.

Karl has also appeared in XENA and HERCULES as Cupid. The episode A Comedy of Eros saw this character appear on Xena.

Karl returns again in S5`s Lifeblood, in a role he filmed for the unseen pilot show, Amazon High. He made one final return in S6 in the classic episode, When Fates Collide.

Karl appears in the NZ movie The Price of Milk (2000) with Danielle Cormack. He has the role of Eomer in The Lord of the Rings, shot in New Zealand and this has catapaulted him to stardom. He appeared in the horror movie Ghost Ship and is lined up for the next Pitch Black movie with Vin Diesel and Judi Dench, and in the follow up to The Bourne Identity with Matt Damon. Karl is probably the highest profile ex-Xena actor in Hollywood. Shame he never mentions the show in interviews...
