Hudson spent her childhood in her hometown alongside her sister, but their parents divorced when she was 13, and the children moved with their mother to Rochester, New York. It was then that she started exhibiting acting talent, and enrolled at the prestigious Neighborhood Playhouse School of the Theatre. She was gradually improving her acting skills, while also launching her modeling career.

Career Beginnings and Rise to Prominence

Hudson’s her first modeling gig came when she finished high school, and secured a modeling engagement that took her to Japan, which was perfect for young Hudson as she liked to travel. From there she moved to Europe, but left her modeling career when in France having decided to pursue acting. She made her acting debut in the TV series “CBS Schoolbreak Special” in 1992, and after a couple of minor roles, she was chosen for the part of Tracy Stone in the TV series “University Hospital” (1995), and the same year also featured for 10 episodes in the highly-acclaimed series “Melrose Place”, as Shelly Hanson. The following year, Hudson secured one of her most prominent roles to date, as Callisto in the TV series “Xena: Warrior Princess”, and though she featured in 12 episodes only, her villainous character became quite popular, and with Hudson a star in the making. She reprised the role of Callisto in the series “Hercules: The Legendary Journeys” (1997-1999), and continued quite successfully in the next few years, starring in the action adventure “Chill Factor” in 1999, and in 2001 featuring in the romantic thriller film “Cold Heart”.

Since the start of the new millennium, Hudson’s career entered a down spiral and she managed only to secure a couple of guest appearances in such TV series as “Fastlane” (2003), “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” (2005), then films “One, Two, Many” in 2008, “Paris Connections” (2010), and “Blood Type” in 2018.

Certified Yoga Instructor

In addition to acting, Hudson is also interested in yoga techniques, and has been a part of the Healing Heart Yoga Center for over 20 years, both as a student and teacher, and recently has been quite focused on its teachings, and is also a member of the California Yoga Teacher’s Association. Hudson has released a book “Healing Yourself Whole” in 2018, in which she speaks about oil treatment.

#Marks / Signs
1The Callisto scream!


1I've had a lot of crazy things happen in my life. In high school, from age 15 to 18, I was saddled with the unfortunate nickname of "Junk", which doesn't do a lot for one's self-esteem. The older boys came up with that name to describe the way I dressed, the way I looked, the way I was to them. I was new at my school, having just moved there--so I guess that meant I was fair game . . . I wanted to dress it up and look sexy, but, at that time, I didn't know anything about sex. I knew nothing about a man's body. I barely knew anything about my own body back then, much less anyone else's . . . The boys called me names to break me down, which they did. They never knew it--I wouldn't cry or let on that it was really killing me--but in fact, it hurt in ways I can never fully express. I couldn't let them know I was afraid. And I was. Absolutely terrified. Even so, I was never the type to hide when I felt afraid. I would walk right down the middle of the hall with my head held high. It screwed up a lot of the ways I felt about sex in general--dress or appear provocative, you were trash or junk because of it. It was a three-year horrifying experience. A lot like the film Welcome to the Dollhouse (1995), except I was persecuted for looking sexy instead of geeky.
2I love doing Callisto [in Xena: Warrior Princess (1995)]. 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? . . . No, I didn't study . . . It's just from the inside.
