Cassiopeia is a major character of Clash of the Titans. She was portrayed by Sian Phillips in the 1981 film and by Polly Walker in the 2010 remake.

Clash of the Titans (1981)

Cassiopeia promised to have Andromeda marry her in exchange for solving her riddles (which was part of the evil plot of Thetis' son Calibos). Anyone who failed was burned at the stakes. Perseus managed to solve the riddle upon hearing Calibos talking to Andromeda where the answer was a ring. When Cassiopeia was having Perseus married to Andromeda and boasted on how Andromeda was more beautiful than Thetis, an earthquake happens at the Temple of Thetis are the statue's head falls near them. Thetis speaks through it stating that she will have the Kraken unleashed upon Joppa unless Andromeda is sacrificed to the Kraken.

Clash of the Titans (2010)

Cassiopeia was present with King Kepheus and Andromeda when their armies returned upon tearing down Zeus' statue and Perseus was brought to them. When Cassiopeia boasted that Andromeda was more beautiful than Aphrodite, Hades arrived and used his powers to age Cassiopeia to near-death.
