Andrew Tiernan as Ephialtes

300 is a dick-flick based on graphic novels. As is I need to say what the plot consists of the Spartan going up against the Persians at the Battle of Thermopylae in 480 BC. I’m just going to say this, I fell asleep while watching 300 and I don’t even know what the 2014 sequel was about, more highly stylized war, This Sparta, Tonight We Dine in Hell where we eat your lies which is what we had yesterday, I’m messing up my references.

Anyway, in 300 and the sequel there is a hunchback named Ephialtes of Trachis. Ephialtes means nightmare. He was played by Andrew Tiernan. In the movie he is a deformed Hunchback whose parents ran away from Sparta. Ephialtes hopes to redeem his father by volunteering for the army. However Ephialtes is too weak so Leonidas rejects his and he joins Xerxes’ side and proves inside information.

Ephialtes was based on a real person who was simple traitor.
