Jay Laga'aia

Draco in Comedy of Eros

Check out Jay's first-ever con appearance at Pasadena in February 2003!

Jay is an incredibly entertaining actor. On Xena he plays the warlord Draco in several episodes. It's a shame it wasn't more. All of his episodes were great.

On Xena

Lyre, Lyre, Hearts on Fire -- Draco returns for this musical episode. And his love for Gabrielle has not died one little bit. One of my favorite parts of this episode is Draco's version of "Always Something There to Remind Me." I hope to eventually have snaps from this episode.

Comedy of Eros -- One of my favorite episodes.

Sins of the Past -- The first Draco episode just so happened to be the very first Xena episode.

Other Work

The Big Time -- Host

Starstruck -- Host (it's a talent show)

Surprise, Surprise -- Presenter (it's a celebrity sting show)

Star Wars: Episode II -- Attack of the Clones -- Captain Typho

Street Legal -- Jay stars as criminal lawyer David Silesi in this NZ television drama.

The Violent Earth -- He plays Jean-Christian in Part Three, Serpent's Heart.

Water Rats -- Tommy Tavita

The Navigator -- I hope to eventually have snaps from this NZ film.

Visit The Internet Movie Database for a complete listing of his work.
