Alexandra-Daddario-Wonder-Woman-Percy-Jackson-interview-slice

Opening this week is director Thor Freudenthal’s fantasy sequel, Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters.  The follow-up finds Percy (Logan Lerman) and his friends venturing to a mythical land known as the Sea of Monsters to retrieve a golden fleece that is essential to the survival of his home.  The film also stars Alexandra Daddario, Brandon T. Jackson, Leven Rambin, Douglas Smith, Stanley Tucci, Nathan Fillion, Jake Abel, Anthony Head and Sean Bean.  For more on the film, watch five clips, the trailer, or read Matt’s review.

At the recent New York City press day, I landed a video interview with Alexandra Daddario.  She talked about when she first heard they’d be making a sequel, what she wants for her character, what it’s like making a film for adults and kids in the same year, who she plays on HBO’s True Detective, and when Warner Bros. will cast her as Wonder Woman (which I think she could pull off).  Hit the jump to watch.

Finally, click here to watch my video interview with Logan Lerman.

Alexandra Daddario:

  • What’s it like making a film for adults and kids/teenagers in the same year.  Talks about making Texas Chainsaw and Percy Jackson in the same year.
  • When did she first hear they’d be making a sequel
  • Was she able to get anything added for her character in the sequel
