Congrats, Paloma Kwiatkowski!
The Vancouver native has just been announced as Thalia in the Percy Jackson film series.
According to Deadline, this was Paloma’s very first audition and attends high school in the area.
In the book, Thalia Grace is the daughter of Zeus who ran away from home at the age of 10. As she and her friends, Luke, Annabeth and protector Grover approached Half-Blood Hill, the monsters they were outrunning caught up to them. She sacrificed her life for her friends, and her father, Zeus, took pity on her before she died and transformed her into a white pine tree to prevent her death.
WHAT DO YOU THINK about Paloma as Thalia?
