Actor and Martyr. Performing a satire in Rome about Christian baptism, he got lost in the plot and converted himself.
He probably thought this would amuse Emperor Diocletian, but Diocletian much preferred a good tragedy.
The actor was beheaded in a farewell performance. So much for method acting. He’s now the Patron Saint of Actors.
