‘Hercules - The Legendary Journeys’ & ‘Xena Warrior Princess’
Since Hercules is a real big-hearted hero in the shows, Hera is pictured as the ‘evil stepmother’. Well, ok, she made herself a name by placing her wrath on the lovers of her husband and their offspring. ;o) But I guess you would be a little upset too, if your partner betrays you for aeons, wouldn’t you? ;o) In mythology she was known for her lust for revenge, but she was also a loving mothergoddess. At least she changed in the shows and in a way saved Xenas daughter Eve...
In spite that she had a titlerole in ‘Hercules’ and was often the reason for Hercules adventures, she actually appeared only 3 times in the shows - in these episodes she was played by Meg Foster - klick on the banner to read more about her and to visit my Meg Foster & Hera galleries.
