Lucy Lawless is known for her sword-swinging days on Xena: Warrior Princess, but the Kiwi actress’ acting career was always quite so glamorous.

Lawless has been spotted in an old ASB bank ad from the early 90s, thanks to the keen eyes over at NZ on Screen.

In the 1992 ad, a very young Lawless stars as a mother/wife figure who tells her baby not to worry about future money woes.

“No problem Stan, we’re getting an Easy Plan,” she says.

Lawless’ career took off after Xena and she’s since been in Battlestar Galactica, Spartacus, Parks and Recreation and most recently the horror series Ash vs. Evil Dead.

NZ actor Erik Thomson also stars in the old ad as her hubby and has since gone on to act in Hercules and Packed To The Rafters.
