American actress, producer and director best known for playing the role of Gabrielle on the TV series Xena: Warrior Princess.
O'Connor began her television career at the age of sixteen with a string of commercials and minor television appearances.
O'Connor first came to the attention of Xena: Warrior Princess executive producers Robert G. Tapert and Sam Raimi with an "over-the-top" audition that won her the role of the young Deianeira in their two-hour "Action Pack" adventure "Hercules and the Lost Kingdom". They later cast her as Gabrielle, Xena's companion on Xena: Warrior Princess.
After the Xena series ended, O'Connor started her own film production company. She continues to attend Xena and science fiction/fantasy conventions.
From 1995 to 2001, during the filming of Xena, O'Connor lived in New Zealand, where she still owns a home. O'Connor married New Zealand native and restaurant manager Steve Muir on October 14, 2000. They have a son, Miles William Muir (born September 22, 2001). The couple divorced in 2005. O'Connor became involved with actor Jed Sura in 2004. She and Sura have a daughter, Iris Sura O'Connor (born March 19, 2006).
