Lydia Callins from "The Hero" is one of the contestants in the TNT action-packed reality competition series. She is a writer, personal trainer and fitness instructor in Los Angeles, California. During the day she helps people get in shape, while at night she loves to write. She says her motto in life is "Don't get mad, get even!"

Lydia Callins is a tough young woman who almost literally raised herself under the most adverse circumstances you can imagine. Growing up in foster care made her tough inside and out. Lydia knew that attending college and graduating would be her ticket to a better life. She then boxed competitively for four years, which prompted her career in fitness. In addition to teaching fitness classes, she is a fighter and mentor for the non-profit organization Knock Outs for Giving.

Here is an interview with Lydia ("The Hero"):

What do you think it means to be a hero? 

To be honest, have integrity and courage and to be selfless.

What's the most important quality that a hero must possess? 


When did you first realize you have what it takes to be a hero? 

I was born with all the components that make up a hero; it's in my DNA.

What's your biggest strength? 

My confidence and tenacity.

What's your biggest weakness?

Lack of patience and standoffish demeanor.

You vs. The Rock: What would be the outcome? 

I would get a sucker punch in, and then run away.

If your life was an action movie, what would it be called?

"The Unbelievable Adventures of Chena."

What are three things you couldn't live without?

Music, books, and the gym.

What's your biggest fear? 

Being stranded in the open ocean.

Describe your most hero-like moment.

Waking up in the middle of the night without an adult present, knocking a charring pot off the stove at the age of three, saving my brother and myself from dying from smoke inhalation.

What's your guilty pleasure? 

White chocolate.

What accomplishment in life are you the most proud of?

The completion of my first novel "Chena the making of an Orphan."

What's your biggest motivator?

I am self-motivated. I am also motivated by a challenge or when someone says I'm not good enough or can't do something.

Who's your hero?

Oprah, Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, Gandhi and Nelson Mandela.

What would be your theme song? 

"I Will Survive."

Why did you want to be on this show? 

To prove to myself that I am a hero and to inspire others to be the best person that they can be.

What gets your adrenaline pumping (e.g. are you a skydiver? Whitewater rafter? Afraid of public speaking, etc.) 

Adrenaline pumps when I have to face any challenge, whether that's getting in the ring, or performing in front of others, I use that energy to deliver and succeed.
