Jemima Rooper (Hex, Lost in Austen) plays Medusa, obviously pre-snake-haired and all that turn into stone business:
The actress says of her legendary character: "It's pre-snake head! It's really nice to be able to play around with the audience's expectations and reinvent a well-known character."
Medusa is "feminine and sweet" but still a bit of a "tomboy" to go out and play with the boys.
"She comes into their lives and ends up... being taken on their adventures… there's even a little romance with one of them!"
"You feel the impending doom of her fate approaching. There's a whole journey to go on.
"What you think is going to happen *is* going to happen… but I can't tell you how or when!"
