ladies who should be playing mythical head bitches in charge | POLLY WALKER as HERA, the sister-wife of almighty zeus, the queen of heaven, the goddess of marriage and women.

"If I cannot change the will of heaven, I shall raise hell." Oh, my foolish husband, she thinks, as she casts out her hand and turns maidens into cows, as she turns a man into a beast of madness. She smiles when Io lets out a low plaintive sound, she smiles when Heracles, the oaf, crushes his wife between his paws. Oh, my foolish husband. She cares not who her husband takes into his bed, what half-witted spawn he fathers; fettered up for the fates to play with, leaving princesses on islands and monsters in tatters. Love is not part of a goddess’s repertoire, but power is. She is the queen of heaven, and he makes a mockery of her craft. She is the queen of all women, and he makes a mockery of her. How dare you, she hisses, low at night and he does not look her in the eye. I can return the favour. Watch.
