JJJ recently chatted with starlet Alexandra Daddario about her role as Annabeth, kissing costar Logan Lerman and what she’s up to next. Check it:
On smooching with Logan: “Oh it [the kiss] was fine. This was sort of towards the end of filming so we were all such good friends at that point that I didn’t even think about it. Movie kisses are different that real kisses. It’s hard to believe but when you’re acting you don’t even…I don’t know how to explain it but you know we shot two endings and I think they decided the other ending made more sense as far as the relationship and what was true in the book.”
On being aware of the fans when she was cast as Annabeth: “I was aware of the negativity towards my being cast. I hadn’t heard or read the books before I was cast because they were geared toward younger audience but I read the book before I read the screenplay. I think I got a good sense of who Annabeth was through the book and the screenplay. She is a very tough smart girl and that was a lot of fun to play. Even though I wasn’t physically similar to the book Annabeth, I think it’s what’s on the inside that counts and I had a lot of fun playing her and I really respect her as a character.”
On her next project, Hall Pass: “It’s a Farrelly Brothers movie with Owen Wilson and Jenna Fischer. The cast is huge and it’s such an amazing cast. It happened very last minute. I think I got a call and then sort of similar to Percy; I was on a plane in two days and it was great. I even celebrated my birthday with some of the cast. It’s a very, very funny movie with a very talented cast and I think it’s going to be great.”
