First Timer Paloma Kwiatkowski Wins PERCY JACKSON Sequel Role

It wasn’t the Mega Millions, but budding actress Paloma Kwiatkowski must have felt like she won a lottery after she was offered the role of Thalia in Fox 2000’s upcoming Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Sea Of Monsters. Her tryout for the role was the very first audition the Vancouver high school student ever went on.

The Sea Of Monsters is a follow up to 2010’s Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightening Thief, based on the first of a series of young adult fantasy adventure novels by Rick Riordan.

Deadline is reporting that in addition to this film, Kwiatkowski is under option for two additional sequels.

Thalia is a new character to the teen-lit adaption franchise and although she has a smaller role in this installment, she will figure prominently in the future storylines. Filming on the Thor Freudenthal-directed sequel is set to start later this month for a March 27, 2013 release date.
