Version by Hudson Leick
Liz Friedman was portrayed by the actress Hudson Leick (most famous for playing Callisto) on two episodes of the TV series Hercules: The Legendary Journeys – Yes, Virginia, There Is a Hercules and For Those of You Just Joining Us. Leick portrayed an over-the-top, chain-smoking version of Liz Friedman who was the cynical voice of reason amongst the producers.
