Andromeda is a major character of Clash of the Titans. She was portrayed by Judi Bowker in the 1981 film and by Alexa Davalos in the 2010 remake.


In Greek mythology, Andromeda was the daughter of Kepheus and Cassiopeia, king and queen of the kingdom Ethiopia. Her mother Cassiopeia boasted that she was more beautiful than the Nereids, the nymph-daughters of the sea god Nereus and often seen accompanying Poseidon. To punish the Queen for her arrogance, Poseidon, brother to Zeus and god of the sea, sent a sea monster named Cetus to ravage the coast of Ethiopia including the kingdom of the vain Queen. The desperate King consulted the Oracle of Apollo, who announced that no respite would be found until the king sacrificed his daughter Andromeda to the monster. She was chained naked to a rock on the coast.

Perseus was returning from having slain the Gorgon Medusa, he found Andromeda and slew Cetus by approaching invisible with Hades's helm and slaying him. He set her free, and married her in spite of Andromeda having been previously promised to her uncle Phineus. At the wedding a quarrel took place between the rivals, and Phineus was turned to stone by the sight of the Gorgon's head.

Clash of the Titans (1981)[]

Calibos, son of the sea goddess Thetis, is a young man engaged to marry Princess Andromeda, the daughter of Queen Cassiopeia and heir to the rich city of Joppa; but has destroyed diverse creatures including most of Zeus's flying horses (excepting only Pegasus). To punish him, Zeus transforms Calibos into a satyr-like creature later exiled by his people. In revenge, Thetis transports Perseus from Seriphos to Joppa, as payback to Zeus for deforming her son, where he learns that Andromeda cannot marry unless her suitor successfully answers a riddle, whose failures are burned at the stake. Perseus, wearing a helmet that renders its wearer invisible, captures Pegasus and follows Andromeda to learn a new riddle from Calibos. Perseus is nearly killed by Calibos but escapes, losing his helmet in the process.

Perseus presents himself as suitor and correctly answers the riddle, presenting the severed hand of Calibos - Calibos' ring is the answer to the riddle. Perseus wins Andromeda's hand in marriage. Calibos, finding that Thetis cannot act against Perseus, instead demands that she take vengeance on Joppa. At the wedding, Queen Cassiopeia compares Andromeda's beauty to that of Thetis herself, whereupon Thetis demands Andromeda be sacrificed to the Kraken on pain of Joppa's destruction.

Clash of the Titans (2010)[]

In the early stages of the film, Perseus is brought before King Kepheus and Queen Cassiopeia who are celebrating the campaign against the gods. The revelry is cut short by the arrival of Hades; who has been given leave; by Zeus to punish the mortals for their defiance of the gods. Hades proclaims that; in the upcoming solar eclipse, he will unleash the Kraken against Argos unless the Princess Andromeda is offered as a sacrifice. Before leaving, he reveals that; Perseus is a demigod and the son of Zeus.

While Perseus is flying back to Argos after beheading Medusa, Andromeda back in Argos was tricked; by her servant, Ammon in escaping the Royal Palace from the masses of Argosians, lead; by Prokopion; who aim to sacrifice her rather than let the whole city suffer at the hands of the Kraken. As revenge for leading Andromeda to them, Peshet, the personal maid of Andromeda killed Ammon, though she was also killed in the process.

After defeating the Kraken, Perseus dives; into the sea and rescues Andromeda, now the queen of Argos. She asks him to stay by her side as King, but he claims he is not a leader, but simply a man. Her people will respect her as their queen.

After defeating the Kraken and Hades, Andromeda falls into the sea and Perseus dives in to save her. When he reaches her, he embraces her; with a passionate kiss; indicating that; he fell in love; with her and she; with him. After reaching the shore and regaining consciousness, Andromeda asks Perseus if he will stay and he says there is someone he needs to talk to before kissing her again; indicating that; he will come back. Getting on Pegasus, he flies to Mount Olympus where he confronts Zeus, stating that; he does not wish to be one of them and that; any conflict between them has just started. After slamming his sword; into the Gods' map and shattering the models of every living person, he leaves and is seen flying on Pegasus over the sea, presumably back to Argos.

"You've been busy with your own battles, Perseus. I've been busy with mine" - Andromeda

Andromeda still

Andromeda as she appears on Wrath of the Titans.

10 years after the events of Clash of the Titans, Andromeda is now the warrior-queen of Argos and is currently waging war against the evil forces escaping from the Underworld. By the time Perseus comes to her for guidance to the Underworld, she has already taken heavy losses against the Chimera invasion. She soon learns of Ares' treachery and forbids any fruther prayers to the God of War. She then introduces Perseus to her ex-fiancé, Agenor.

She derides him as a liar and a thief, and initially Agenor is reluctant to aid them, but with some convincing from Perseus he agrees to the quest. He immediately demands a royal pardon and his body's wieght in gold from Andromeda - which she begrudgingly allows, though she retorts it will only be a few coins to match his weight.

She chooses to accompany Perseus to the Underworld with her Royal Guards, leaving Mantius in charge of the army. Once at sea, Agenor uses the trident to guide them to the Island of Kail. There the group is ambushed by the Cyclopes, but they quickly back down when Perseus reveals the Trident. The Queen is then introduced to Hephaestus, who is depowered and dismayed by the turn of events. He believes the quest is hopeless, however Andromeda reasons that humans often make do with very little in desprate times, and still they prevail.

Moved by her humility, Hephaestus has a change of heart. He shows them the layout of the Labyrinth and quickly forms a plan. The Smith-god leads them to the Labyrinth entrance, but they are attacked by Ares on arrival. Andromeda survives the fight, but all her men and her aide Korrina are slain by the God of War. For this she brands him a coward.

She escapes into the Labyrinth with Perseus and Agenor, but without Hephaestus she is doubtful of finding their way through. Soon she senses that something is stalking the group in the dark passages, and she sees an apparition of her dead friend briefly. Soon the Labyrinth begins to shift, and the Queen is trapped between the walls. Perseus and Agenor rescue her, but the trio are separated.

After Perseus slays the Minotaur, Andromeda and Agenor reunite with him, and the three of them descend into Tartarus. There she assists Perseus in freeing Zeus, just as Kronos himself awakens. Together she helps Zeus to safety, and the God-King uses his power to bring them out of the Underworld and back to Andromeda's camp. The Queen brings Zeus to a safe place, but by now he is without power and slowly dying. Resigned, Andromeda prepares her troops for the army of Makhai while Perseus heads off to duel Ares and retrieve Zeus' Thunderbolt.

Soon the Makhai descend on the plains, and Andromeda assists her men in destroying them. Despite heavy losses, the battle turns in their favour when Hades arrives to heal Zeus, and together they wipe out the Makhai, winning the field for Andromeda's men. She then witnesses Kronos' arrival and his battle with Perseus, Hades and Zeus.

After the Titan King is slain, the Queen and her men celebrate their victory. She is introduced to Helius, Perseus' son, after which she shares a kiss with Perseus himself.


In Clash of the Titans she is a calm, level headed individual who displays more respect for others than her mother and father.

In Wrath of the Titans, Andromeda retains her calm demeanour, but she has an unwavering spirit that allows her to connect with others. She is a staunch friend and ally, and is quick to aid Perseus on his quest. Though she is scornful of Agenor to begin with, she soon warms to him after he proves his worth. Notably, her humility towards Hephaestus is enough to win him over.

She appears to take a dim view of of killing the weak instead of sparing them. For this reason she takes a particular dislike to Ares, calling him a coward after he murdered her friend. Despite her family's fraught relations with the gods, Andromeda appears to hold no personal grudge and still retains some reverence for them, given that she willingly assists in Zeus' rescue and shows respect to Hephaestus.

She is has a sense of strategy and pragmatism, most evident when she leads her men against the Makhai.
