  • Quotes

    • Hudson: (on the decision to play up a sexual tension between Callisto and Xena) I love that - it makes it so much more exciting for me. Lucy will say, 'Okay, let's flirt.' That's what we do. It is just a big flirt. It's seduction, except it is life or death. It's exciting, it's fun.

    • Hudson: (on playing Callisto) I love being a villain.. It's like a little kid's dream. All of my demons balled up, screaming... I am a three-year-old throwing a fit, and everyone's saying, 'Yeah!'

    • Hudson: (on playing Callisto on "Xena") I try not to take any of this too seriously. How seriously can I take myself in a black leather metal-studded bikini with a giant sword in my hand?

    • Hudson: Aaron Spelling has been good to me, and I only say that because it's true, both with University Hospital and Melrose. But I have to say that I find no love on Melrose Place. I don't mind playing evil characters, but everybody's screwing everybody else's somebody on Melrose, and behind the scenes there's a lot of egos colliding. It made me feel uncomfortable and I could never be a part of that whole scene.

    • Hudson: (referring to her character on "Xena: Warrior Princess") There wouldn't be a scene with Callisto without the rocks.

    • Hudson: I love doing Callisto. It's therapy. I mean, wouldn't you love it if you got to scream and yell and you got to fight people and you got a sword and no one yelled at you?!

  • Fantastic actress.

    Heidi Hudson Leick, upon graduating high school, got a modeling gig in Japan; this was perfect because she loves traveling and modeling. When she returned to New York, her dream was to be an international model and then go into acting. One day, she quit modeling while in France, and pursued a TV career. After several episodes of "Melrose Place" (1992) and several TV movies, Hudson's big break in television came auditioning for her signature role of "Callisto" on "Xena: Warrior Princess" (1995). The casting people told her the part was that of a warrior queen, which she thought was great. Her audition consisted of doing a kick and throwing a chakram; having intimidated the crew, she got the part. Hudson attends Xena conventions as a guest of honor. She said her celebrity status surprises even her: when she had a birthday, several hundred fans sent her email messages. Her presence touches so many other people. She loves traveling, going on yoga retreats and climbing mountains. Hudson said at a convention, "I really want to thank all the people who have been supportive of me. It is so appreciated."moreless

    The first time I ever saw Hudson was in the episode of Xena: Warrior Princess 'Callisto', and since then I have admired her acting abilities. Though I haven't seen her in many other roles, her portrayal of the psychotic blonde Callisto has allowed me to have faith in actors and actresses. I have seen interviews with Hudson, and she seems to be an incredibly kind and caring person.



    She delievers her lines so perfectly, and she has such unique movements while acting. I would love to see Hudson in more shows, and especially in a show where she is the main star. She is one of the few performers in the world that I respect, not only for her acting abilities, but her personality as well.moreless
