Lucy Lawless is back in town to promote Ash vs Evil Dead, which airs on Sky TV's The Zone.

It's a TV series based on the 1981 horror classic The Evil Dead which was produced by Lucy's husband - Rob Tapert.

Ash Vs Evil Dead includes the return of original cast member Bruce Campbell as Ash. 

When a Deadite plague threatens to destroy all of mankind, Ash is finally forced to face his demons –personal and literal.

Destiny, it turns out, has no plans to release the unlikely hero from its evil grip.

Ms Lawless plays Ruby, a seductive and reclusive figure well steeped in the ancient mythology surrounding The Evil Dead.  

Her sister was killed in the original movie and she is now seeking Ash to wreak her revenge.  

Ms Lawless joined Paul Henry in the studio to discuss the show and her work as an environmental and political activist.

She also answered a series of rapid fire questions Paul put to her on everything from Donald Trump to climate change.
