Hercules executive producer Rob Tapert called Teresa, "incredibly beautiful" but "physically the weakest actress" they ever had on the series. In spite of that, he wished she would have returned to the series for the episodes "Two Men and a Baby" and "Full Circle." It was Teresa's decision not to return to the role of "Nemesis."
Teresa says her biggest challenge working on Guiding Light was memorizing lines. As "Eden August" she often had to learn 30 pages of dialogue for each episode in which she appeared.
Teresa admits one of the best things about being on Models, Inc. was working with Linda Gray. She says having watched Gray on Dallas for years and then getting to work with her was "a great experience."
Teresa's hobbies include yoga and skydiving. She also loves going to the theater, movies, the ballet, and museums.
Teresa has black hair and brown eyes.
In 1995, Teresa appeared in pictorials for both Celebrity Skin and Celebrity Sleuth magazines.
Teresa, who played "Nemesis" in two episodes of Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, was the second of three actresses to tackle the role. Series star, Kevin Sorbo, has said not only was Hill the best of the three, but called her "very sexy, gorgeous, and a pleasure to work with."
Teresa is represented professionally by Randy Ross of EWCR out of New York City.
Teresa has five siblings, three sisters and two brothers. She is the third oldest child in a strict Mormon family.
Teresa's very first acting job was in a Diet Pepsi commercial with music legend Ray Charles.
Teresa's theater credits include:
- Much Ado About Nothing
- As You Like It
Teresa: My older sister, who I was very close to, passed away [killed in a drunk driving accident] when I was 13. It changed my life dramatically. I wouldn't be an actress if that hadn't happened. I probably would be in Utah, married with a couple of kids. It totally changed your personality. You do things you would never do. Acting was a way for me to get rid of some of that pain.
Teresa: In junior high school, I was really shy. Acting was a way I could show a different side of myself. It was really fun.
Teresa: ...I love the career I've chosen. I've always wanted to be an actress ever since I was a little girl. It's a lifestyle and a lifelong pursuit. And I hope I'm acting until I'm 106.
