Due to the immense popularity of the character, Callisto, (from the series Xena: Warrior Princess) and the very talented acting abilities of the person who portrays her
, Hudson Leick
, there are now literally dozens of various web sites honoring both, the delightful and fascinating, Hudson Leick
, and the ever vengeful, wise-cracking, Callisto, who fans sometimes like to fondly refer to as "The Goddess of Obsession".
Those of us who have followed Hudson's acting career from the beginning, and recognize what a genuinely talented and diverse actress she
is, know that it's just a matter of time before the name "Hudson Leick
" will become a familiar household name.
...Recently, I had the immense pleasure of meeting Hudson for the first time at a convention held in Fairfield, California. (See the article "Hudson At Fairfield Convention" for more info) I can honestly say that I found Hudson Leick to be as beautiful a person inside, as out.She
is intelligent, gracious, charming, witty, and above all else warm, friendly and totally unpretentious.
So, it is to you, Hudson
, that this Newsletter is dedicated, from all your faithful, devoted and loyal fans who already know that someday soon you will be a HUGE success.We all love you and wish you the very best.
In the coming months we hope that everyone - both "old time" Hudson
Leick fans, as well as those people who are just now discovering what an incredible actress, and person, Hudson
is - will find the Newsletter insightful, informative and most of all, fun.
If there is something that you think would be of particular interest to other Hudson/Callisto fans, or if you would like to see your Web Site featured in a future Newsletters, please send your ideas and suggestions to me, Debbie, at [firstname.lastname@example.org]. Hudson
Leick Is #1!Once again Hudson Leick's many fans have shown their dedication and support by voting Hudson to the #1 position in StatsMaster's weekly "Hottest Actress of the Web's Top 20" poll, for favorite female movie and tv stars from the past, present and future.
StatsMaster has been running "The Hottest Actress of the Web Top 20" web site for 16 weeks (as of this writing) and Hudson
has received more votes than anyone else for 10 of those 16 weeks.Actually, she has been in the #1 position 8 out of the last 9 weeks.
Way to go, Hudson!And way to vote, Hudson
has consistently received enough votes, from week to week, to also propel her into the coveted #1 position on the "All Time Top 10" list, narrowly edging out Lucy Lawless (Xena Warrior Princess) and Renee O'Conner (Gabrielle) among other top contenders.
...#1. Hudson Leick - 354
If you would like to cast your vote for your favorite actress (Hudson, of course) you can visit StatsMaster's "Hottest Actress of the Web" web site at: [http://www.geocities.com/Hollywood/Set/3048]
Each week's poll runs from 12am Monday morning through 11:59pm Sunday evening.Be sure and vote each and every week to keep Hudson at the top of the list and #1 on the "All Time Top 10".
Well, as you might imagine it was a long, gruesome battle, but once the dust had settled and the ballet boxes had been "unstuffed" - due to the competitive nature of some of the more zealous participants, on all sides - our own dear, Hudson
ended up in 7th place, just ahead of Renee O'Conner and Lucy Lawless.

2) Did you like the fact that Hudson
did the "Celeste" role on Touched By An Angel?
As I stated earlier in the newsletter, on May 4th of this year I had the extreme pleasure of seeing Ms Hudson
Leick in person, and meeting her
for the first time, at a convention held in Fairfield, California.Mere words cannot possibly convey what an incredible "presence" Ms Leick
has and what a fascinating and delightful person she
is.If given the chance, I urge all Hudson
fans to make every effort to see her
in person (not that anyone wouldn't, but I had to say it anyway) you will not be disappointed.Her
charismatic personality and exuberance for life is both infectious and inspiring.
One of the most humorous moments from the convention occurred while Hudson
was signing autographs.I asked her
thought "The Goddess of Obsession" had any regrets?She
then looked down at her
chest and said, "YES, and they're ALL MINE!"When she
looked up at me, she
must have seen the confused look on my face because she
said, "You asked if I had breasts, right?""NO", I replied ... "REGRETS"!Even though I must have turned five shades of red, everyone had a good laugh. Hudson
was very gracious about answering every question that was asked her
.Signed every autograph asked for, which took a considerable amount of time.And posed for numerous pictures with everyone, myself included.
As I said, I cannot explain what it's like to be in the same room with Hudson
, but I found her
to be vivacious, charming, hilariously funny, honest, campy, down to earth and totally enjoyable.In short, a complete angel ... with a "wild" side. [G]

Lastly, we would like to leave you with a special note.Another very active Hudson
fan (Mich) and myself have been talking for a couple months now about the current state of the Hudson Leick Fan Club web site.Many Hudson
fans including myself believe that the Hudson Leick Fan Club
should give its members more dedication and commitment, as well as being more timely on its updates and information, than what is currently being done by the "Official" Fan Club web site.If you are reading this, you probably agree that Hudson
Leick is the most versatile, brilliant, and amazing actress to ever show up on your screen, and we at the Hudson Leick
Admiration Group feel that she
deserves more from her Fan Club
.This is not intended to bash the current operator of the Fan Club, (we all know Matt is a very dedicated fan to Hudson) but for whatever reason, he has proven to be unable to offer what a lasting fan club needs to gain new fans and keep current fans informed of the current happenings.
In this sense, we plan on proposing something to the fan base for Hudson
Leick.We would like to convert the current Hudson
Leick Admiration Group into the new Hudson Leick Fan Club web site.If you, the fans, choose the www.hudsonleickfan.com domain to host the new Fan Club web site we will hopefully be having Sturm (if he
agrees) become the "new member handler" who will keep the members listing up to date as well as organizing a mainte
