David de Lautour on "Xena: Warrior Princess" (1996)

David de Lautour (RJ, Jungle Fury) made his acting debut twelve years ago on "Xena: Warrior Princess." During the first season episode "Altared States," de Lautour played a major guest starring role as Icus, a young boy who is sent away by his mother after God speaks to his father, telling him that Icus must be sacrificed to prove his faith. Xena and Gabrielle, however, cross paths with the boy, saving him from his brother who is trying to bring him home. They later discover that it isn't God's voice that Icus' father hears, but that of his jealous brother who seeks their kingdom for himself. David appears in several scenes alongside series stars Lucy Lawless and Renee O'Connor. An interesting note about David's appearance is that his voice in the episode is not his own. It is dubbed by Jason Levine, the son of this episode's director, Michael Levine. This would be the first of two appearances for de Lautour on the series.

Season 1 of "Xena: Warrior Princess" is available on DVD
