Throughout the Lexx series, characters that die are frequently reincarnated as a different character in another universe and/or season. This is sometimes called "same actor, different character".

Instances of reincarnation

In some cases, the crew of the Lexx recognize the character has been reincarnated, but that character has no memory of their previous life. The reincarnated version of the character typically shares some personality or characteristics of the original version, even though no memories are transferred.

Unclear instances of reincarnation

In other cases involving the major characters, they are recreated or reborn so that they retain their memories.

Zev Bellringer Xev Bellringer Xev Bellringer Xev Bellringer
Stanley Tweedle Stanley Tweedle Stanley Tweedle Stanley Tweedle
Brud Parsnip
    Isambard Prince Isambard Prince

Xev Bellringer is created by Lyekka as a replacement for Zev Bellringer, and is arguably a form a reincarnation but of a slightly different nature since a different actress plays the new role and the character retains the memory of her previous life.

In Lexx 4.6 "The Rock", Stanley Tweedle encounters a character known as Brud Parsnip, who is physically identical to Stanley and also shares personality traits like his cowardice. However, this does not appear to be an instance of reincarnation since Stanley is still living.

Throughout Season 3 and 4, Isambard Prince reincarnates himself several times after he dies, and in some cases does so in the image of other characters for the purpose of deception.

Minor character recasting

There are many other minor characters that are played by re-cast actors, not intended to be noticed by the viewer, and are not necessarily instances of reincarnation.

Since the series was out of Halifax, and it's a relatively small city of 250,000 with a commensurately small acting community, most local actors of talent were heavily enlisted.
