Heidi Hudson Lake is a famous American film and television actress who was born in May 1969. The Russian audience remembered the talented blonde for her role as the fearless and cruel warrior Callisto in the TV series Xena - Warrior Princess. But on her account there are many other roles in films, mainly of heroic themes.
The future actress was born in Hamilton County, Ohio, in one of the richest American cities in Cincinnati. Lake's parents divorced when she was 13 years old and her mother moved to Rochester with her two daughters. Here the girl went to study acting at the Neighborhood Playhouse in New York.
Since childhood, Hudson Lake gravitated towards creativity and performances in front of the public, but she was complex because of her tall stature. But the cute little girl with model data was noticed by the scouts of the Japanese agency. After graduating from high school, Hudson received an offer to go to Japan to master the profession of a model. The girl liked this opportunity - after all, she loved traveling and performing more than anything else.
Returning to America and settling in New York after successfully conquering the Japanese catwalks, Lake continued to engage in modeling, but had already outlined the next step in her career - to become an actress. After the "French" period of her activity in 1992, she received an offer to appear in the series and abandoned the modeling profession.
The first work on television, a cameo role in the television series "Special School Holidays" in 1992, did not bring the actress much success, but became a key moment in her biography. Hudson has the right contacts and a good resume. In 1993, she appeared in an episode of the famous TV series Law & Order, and in 1994 she played one of the central characters in the fantastic film Knight Rider.
The breakthrough came in 1995 when Hudson appeared in several episodes of Melrose Place and later auditioned for the role of Callisto. She was required to show off the kick and throw the chakram effectively, Xena's main weapon. And Lake coped with this task brilliantly, literally intimidating the entire commission with her overt, natural aggressiveness. And instantly got a role in the cult saga.
To date, the actress has more than 30 works in film and television, and she left her acting career in the past, doing what brings her not only a good income, but also the pleasure of life - yoga. Lake opened her own yoga school in Los Angeles, which is very popular in the "star" environment.
In 1995, Hudson met John Kaisner, and they were in a relationship until 2005. Nothing is known about the other novels of the actress, as well as about whether she has children. The personal life of a successful blonde is carefully hidden from prying eyes, although she is quite active on social networks.
