PERFORMER Arthur Dignam
DEBUT 1990

Acrisius was father of Danae. Fearing a prophesy that her son would kill him, Acrisius locked Danae away. However, Danae still became pregnant (by the god Zeus) and gave birth to Perseus.

When Acrisius found out about Perseus, he cast Danae and her son into the sea in a wooden chest.

The story of Acrisius was told in The StoryTeller: Greek Myths' episode "Perseus and the Gorgon".
