Alexandra Daddario Dreams of Olympus

Alexandra Daddario Dreams of Olympus

It’s less than a week until Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief and JJJ can’t wait!

Alexandra Daddario recently sat down with Scholastic to chat about her character, what she would do if she was a demigod and her favorite character in the series. Check it:

On one of her favorite characters in the books: “Poseidon is a great character as well. The gods are very interesting and the great thing about Greek mythology is the gods make mistakes, they’re more human. So they do mischievous things and they have arguments and get jealous. So some of the gods are very interesting, Ares especially. In the movie he’s a very fun character.”

On how she would describe her character, Annabeth: “She is a great combination of strength and weakness I think which is interesting because what you see her as at first is just very tough and very strong, and you start to see that she has this sweetness and this weakness underneath that. Which I think everybody does. So even though she’s half god, she’s also very human and that makes her a lot of fun to play.”

On if she was really a demigod: “I got to experience everything that a demigod would get to experience just by doing this movie — sword fighting and wearing armor and running through the woods and stuff like that. I can’t imagine. I mean I’d love to go to Olympus, to really see real Olympus. And meet the gods in person.”

TELL JJJ: Are you excited for the movie to open this Friday?
