Alexandra Daddario on Annabeth being a “Better Friend” in Sea of Monsters

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.”

Thor Freudenthal Talks Sea of Monsters

The Hollywood Reporter interviewed Thor Freudenthal, director of the Sea of Monsters movie, about the film and its loyalty to the books:

THR: The first film got a bit of heat for not being completely faithful to the book. How aware were you of that issue?

Freudenthal: I was aware. I read through some of the issues hardcore fans of the book had with the movie. While I sort of saw the issues here and there, I also felt that the movie has to restructure and re-think a lot of things in order to work as a movie, as opposed to a book, which is a sprawling, maybe at times episodic, adventure. The book can obviously afford the luxury to do that, whereas a movie has one straight through-line you have to follow. What was important to me in making it was there’s some central elements in the mythology of Percy Jackson that our story wouldn’t work without. It’s all a big part of the first book in the series. I thought this story we’re telling gave us the opportunity to bring those elements that were missing the first time around into this movie.

THR: In the books, the characters are younger, about 11 or 12 years old. Are you glad that the film has older characters?

Freudenthal: That was a decision that [Lightning Thief director] Chris [Columbus] made, and, think of it what you will, I fully understand it because I’ve done a couple films with young actors, with kids, and as much as it’s really gratifying to work with young performers, there’s limitations to the physical abilities, to what you can do with action. I find it fully understandable that Chris wanted to go with older actors and I’m thrilled that he picked the actors he did. To me, it’s definitely different from the book, but I felt it helped me in my day-to-day work in trying to create action with young people. Even though the actors are older, I think they embody the youthful spirit that the characters have.

THR: Have you had any talks about directing the next film in the series? Are you interested in that?

Freudenthal: I have not talked to people about it, but generally, yes, sure, I’d be interested. I think it’s a fun world to visit. I think that the books series continues to explore different worlds. In the movie alone we went from Camp Half-Blood to the open ocean to surrealistic environments such as Hermes’ house. It feels like you were in so many different places exploring so many different worlds. I’d be attracted to continuing down that road to explore different worlds. Obviously it depends on how people like this movie and how well it does.
