Period makeups: Greek myths & legends

These are mythical characters: character who not only never existed but whose stories reference worlds in which the gods actively intervened – or at the very least, where magic and the supernatural were real.

The characters come from Greek Mythology (eg Medea) or legendary literature (eg Helen).

In many cases filmmakers have either let their imaginations run riot or have allowed the actress a remarkably contemporary look.
