Lawless has cameo role

Arrested eco-warrior and Hollywood star Lucy Lawless guest-starred last week in the Top of the Lake television miniseries being shot near Queenstown.

The Spartacus actress, one of seven Greenpeace activists to appear on burglary charges in the New Plymouth District Court tomorrow, described the fun she had on location.

"Queenstown is absolutely gorgeous! Best honeymoon spot anytime of the year," Lawless tweeted.

Lawless has a cameo role as Caroline, the estranged wife of Bob, a real estate agent who crosses drug lord Matt Mitchum.

Outrageous Fortune star Robyn Malcolm also appears in the show as Anita, who is searching for answers and comfort from guru GJ at the women's camp. Malcolm began filming on the first day of the shoot and will be with the production for weeks.
