Heidi Hudson Leick (born May 9, 1969 in Cincinnati, Ohio) is an American actress, known for her role as Callisto in the TV series Xena: Warrior Princess.



Early and Personal Life

Heidi Hudson Leick was born on May 9, 1969 in Cincinnati, Ohio. During high school, she moved to Rochester, New York. She later attended the Neighborhood Playhouse Acting School in New York City.[1]


Hudson Leick started her career as a model in Japan, but decided to concentrate on acting. She took courses in drama and diction to improve her voice. In 1992 she appeared in one episode of the series CBS Schoolbreak Special. The following year, Leick appeared in an episode of Law & Order. She also played a small role as a "sexpot" in University Hospital as nurse Tracy Stone.[2] In 1994 she appeared as the virtual reality designer Hannah in the television film Knight Rider 2010.[3]

Hudson Leick's big break came in 1995 when she won a part on Melrose Place. Leick appeared in ten episodes of the series. After a couple of small roles in Hijacked:Flight 285 and Dangerous Cargo, the director Robert Tapert selected Leick for the role of Callisto on Xena: Warrior Princess. Leick also portrayed Callisto on three episodes of Xena companion TV series Hercules: The Legendary Journeys[4] and she also portrayed screenwriter Liz Friedmann in two Hercules episodes.

In 2000 Hudson Leick announced at a convention that she would not be in more episodes of Xena: Warrior Princess or Hercules: The Legendary Journeys because she was being offered more and different roles, and felt that she needed to play another character besides Callisto.

Hudson Leick also appeared in Chill Factor,[5] Hallowed Ground,[6] Blood Type, 7th Heaven, Denial, Touched by an Angel, After the Game and Safe Harbor. She performed in A.I. Assault, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Lords of Everquest, Tru Calling (in its pilot episode), the voice of Jen in the computer game Primal,[7] Fastlane and Cold Heart.

Most recently, she finished the films One, Two, Many[8] and Unconditional.


Leick has been studying yoga for over sixteen years and has taught for thirteen. She is a member of the California Yoga Teacher's Association, and part of the staff at the Healing Heart Yoga Center.
