Rose McIver & Peter Feeney on "Xena: Warrior Princess" (1999)

Eight years before appearing together in "Johnny Kapahala: Back on Board," Rose McIver (Summer, RPM) and Peter Feeney (voice of Angor, Dino Thunder) shared the small screen on "Xena: Warrior Princess." This time however, they didn't play father & daughter. In the fifth season episode "Little Problems," Xena & Gabrielle come upon a dying little girl named Daphne and the goddess Aphrodite appeases Xena's calls to help the child by switching Xena's body with Daphne's. McIver plays Daphne and by extension portrays Xena for most of the episode. McIver appears throughout and even fights off the bad guys, superhero style. Voice actor Peter Feeney appears as Tharon, the episode's villain who tries to hunt down Xena for disfiguring him. After discovering the body switch, Tharon takes on young Daphne/Xena himself in a swordfight which he ends up losing.
