The former Xena star played Ron Swanson’s (Nick Offerman) third wife on the beloved NBC comedy, and turns out the third time was the charm because she was Ron’s happily ever after. When it came to Lawless’ experience behind-the-scenes when the cameras weren’t rolling, it turns out things were just as lovely.
