Catching Up With Hudson Leick (Callisto From 'Xena')

We thought we'd heard everything here at TV Guide. But
then we rang up Hudson Leick, and dang if the former
Xena: Warrior Princess villainess didn't prove us
wrong in nothing flat.

"I quit acting for about two years," the 34-year-old
knockout tells us. Why on Earth? If ever a performer
was born ready for her close-up, we'd have bet that it
had to be her. So, what possessed her?!

"'What possessed you?!'" she repeats dramatically,
then bursts into laughter. "I just wasn't crazy about
the business. When you work, you're so lucky I mean,
only [a small percentage] of the Screen Actors Guild
actually makes enough money to support themselves. I
just didn't think that was what I wanted to do.

"But," she adds, "I was wrong."

We could've told Leick that. Whether the veteran of
Melrose Place and Touched by an Angel is throwing
herself into another of what she calls the "slutty,
bitchy bimbo" roles on which she's built her golden
rep, or revealing unimagined fragility in a less
aggressive part, you'd be hard-pressed to find a more
compelling screen presence.

Nonetheless, before getting back into the swing of
things, the Ohio native set in motion Plan B: a new
career as a yoga instructor. "I'm certified three
times over," she says proudly. "It doesn't pay the
bills quite the same [as acting], but it's very, very
cool." On the rare occasions when she's recognized,
she feigns ignorance. "People will be like, 'You look
just like that girl on that show. Shoot... what was
her name?' And I say, 'Really? What show?'"

If Leick's wish (and, for that matter, ours) is
granted, soon all the world will know what show she's
on. Although she comes back to the fore this fall,
guest-starring in the series premiere of Fox's Tru
Calling, with Eliza Dushku, she's already got her eye
on an even bigger prize: a gig on Angel, Dushku's
sometimes stomping ground. "The same casting agency
that hired me for Tru Calling [handles] Angel, and I
really want to play a vampire," she teases. "So
anything is possible."

Callisto as yoga instructor - now there's an image

Oh thank you so much for posting this, I was wondering what Hudson was up to.

I saw the trailer for Tru Calling and it's cause of her that I'm basically going to watch it.

There has never been a more complex villian on any show than Callisto IMO. I loved her
