Disney Books has posted a great new clip of Rick Riordan reading a brand spanking new excerpt from HOUSE OF HADES! It’s a little less than 2 minutes long, but it comes from a meaty scene featuring Percy and Annabeth, smack in the middle of the book!
“The Phlegethon? Sounds like a marathon for hocking spit balls.”
Alexandra Daddario talked to MTV about the changes in her character, Annabeth Chase, between the first and second films.
“I think in the first movie she’s tougher and she has more of a guard up. And I think as far as her relationship with Percy is concerned, she wants him to prove himself to her more,” Daddario said. “In this one, I think she’s a better friend. I think she’s let him in. She’s more vulnerable, and I think it’s sort of a sign of her growing up that she’s able to sort of show her weaknesses a little more. And I liked playing that.”
“You see more of what makes her tick, and when you find out Percy has a half-brother, she really doesn’t like him because he’s a Cyclops,” Daddario explained. “Not to give too much away, but I’m sure everyone’s read the books. And you sort of find out why that is, and you sort of find out where she comes from and who she was, and I think she learns a lot from her dislike of this person. She sort of finds out that everyone’s not so bad. It was interesting to play this more vulnerable, sweet side of her and see what makes her who she is.”
