The Warrior Princess is on the mend.

Lucy Lawless, star of television's "Xena: Warrior Princess," was released from a hospital Wednesday, a week after fracturing her pelvis while taping a skit for "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno."

"She's fine," said Jim Benson, spokesman for MCA Television, the show's distributor. "She just needs some rest and recuperation."

The 28-year-old New Zealand actress is unlikely to resume work for four to six weeks, Benson said. The injury was expected to have little impact on the production of "Xena."

Lawless, in the United States vacationing and doing publicity for her popular syndicated show, was taping the skit in NBC's Burbank studio parking lot on Oct. 8 when her horse lost its footing and fell.
