Anthony Quinn, born Antonio Rodolfo Quinn Oaxaca, was a multi-Oscar winning actor who originated the role of Zeus in the Xenaverse by playing the character in all five of the Universal Action Pack Hercules telemovies. The likeness of Zeus (voiced by Peter Rowley) in Hercules and Xena - The Animated Movie: The Battle for Mount Olympus was based on Quinn. In the series, Quinn was replaced as Zeus by three different actors (Peter Vere-Jones, Roy Dotrice, and Charles Keating).

Quinn is best known for his roles in Zorba The Greek and Lawrence of Arabia but he had over 160 acting credits at the time of his death.
