With so many fan-favorite series and movies being remade lately, it’s hard for fans no expect the original actors who played those characters to be able to return in some way, shape, or form. That includes fans of Rick Riordan’s Greek mythology book series “Percy Jackson and the Olympians,” which was adapted into a 2010 feature film and a 2013 sequel. But, for the moment at least, those fans probably They shouldn’t have too much hope when it comes to Alexandra Daddario.
In a recent interview with WrapWomen’s “UnWrapped” podcast, the actress, who played Annabeth Chase in both “Percy Jackson” movies, was quick to reject the idea that she might be involved in the next series set for Disney +. .
“No!” Daddario said with a laugh. “No, I loved ‘Percy Jackson.’ Like me loved that. When I got into ‘Percy Jackson’ and got that job, I had no idea what it was. I was a bit of an actor in New York City, you know? He was a kid, he worked in a bar, he had no idea about Hollywood or all these things. And so when I got that job, I really didn’t know what I was getting into. I knew it was a really important movie. And it was the most incredible experience for a 22/23 year old. “
She continued: “Chris Columbus, who directed it, and his producing partners were so supportive that I am forever grateful. And, you know, I learned a lot and have had a career in the business that I wanted to have. And that’s amazing. “
With those happy memories in hand, Daddario is more than happy to pass the torch on to a new Annabeth, whoever she is.
“I am very excited about the girls who will be chosen for that and how they will inspire a new generation of young women. As if she’s so cool, Annabeth is a really inspiring character for people, “he said. “But no, I don’t know anything beyond that, and I shouldn’t! I was just the girl in the movie. “
