Dreams really do come true! A Vancouver high school senior, Paloma Kwiatkowski, has been cast as Thalia in Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Sea Of Monsters. More details after the jump!
The film shoots in Vancouver, which will be convenient for Kwiatkowski, since she is a high school student there who got the role after her very first audition. She signed for one picture, with options for two more where, if the series continues, her character takes on a greater level of importance. Her reps tell me Kwiatkowski will finish high school, where she is captain of her improv team and will be heading to the National Championships in Ottawa next month.
The second Percy Jackson will be directed by Thor Freudenthal. Production starts on April 12, and the film is due out on March 26, 2013.
What do you think of Kwiatkowski’s casting as Thalia? We think it’s awesome she was cast while still in high school!
