Logan Lerman & Alexandra Daddario Chat Percy Jackson

Logan Lerman & Alexandra Daddario Chat Percy Jackson

Just one more day until you can see Logan Lerman, Alexandra Daddario, and Brandon T. Jackson on the big screen as Percy, Annabeth and Grover in the much-anticipated Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief.

The new trio recently chatted with CinemaBlend and sounded off on reading the book before the script and how it really was working with Uma Thurman and Pierce Brosnan. Check it:

Alexandra on working in front of a green screen for most of the time: “It’s a little like being a kid again. You get to use your imagination. You can imagine the monster as big and scary as you want it to be. It’s a lot of fun. It’s really amazing to see what you imagined brought to screen.”

Logan on working big name actors like Pierce, Uma and Kevin McKidd: “I’ve always put it this way; acting for me is like a kid walking into a playground and, you know, these great actors like Pierce and Uma and these people that are so seasoned and so talented, they have a huge playground. And going into a scene there’s so much to explore with them because they have many places to go. So it’s just a lot of fun to see your heroes and work with them.”

Brandon on reading the book and then developing his character of Grover: “I have two little sisters who are obsessed with ‘Percy Jackson’ and I told them that I’m just auditioning for Grover and they went totally crazy and that’s when I read the book. I’m going through the book and going through the book and just trying to hurry up and learn it and I feel in love with it. Then I read the script; I feel in love with the script too. So it was like the way I developed the character. And Chris [Columbus] did a great job with helping me develop Grover because in the book he’s real timid and he’s real kind of nervous and I wanted to play him a little cooler. A little bit more swag, as we say.”

Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief opens in theaters TOMORROW, Friday, February 12.

TELL JJJ: What would be a good name to call Percy fans?

    One of the disney magazines (I’m guessing thats what it was) heard a rumor that Alexandra and Logan are dating. But when Logan was question about it, he said they’re just really good friends. I bet they reached this assumption 1.Because they are in a lot of pictures together 2. They’re always together 3. CUTEST COUPLE EVER
