"It’s great to play the same character. I think that, in this script, it’s the same character, but she actually has a different emotional journey and you see a different side of Annabeth then you did in the first one. So there are new aspects of her that I get to find and play with in this film that I didn’t get to in the first. So that’s a lot of fun for me."
"I was aware of the negativity towards my being cast. I hadn’t heard or read the books before I was cast because they were geared toward a younger audience, but I read the book before I read the screenplay. I think I got a good sense of who Annabeth was through the the book and the screenplay. She is a very tough, smart girl, and that was a lot of fun to play. Even though I wasn’t physically similar to the book Annabeth, I think it’s what’s on the inside that counts, and I had a lot of fun playing her, and I really respect her as a character."
“I think it’s great. You know, because you already have this fanbase that is excited about the movie in the first place, so you’re going into something that people have excitement for. I think that it’s two different mediums and I think that people know that it can’t be exactly like the book because scripts have a different structure. But, I…I’m sure you want to do the book justice, and I just hope that I did.” -on being asked about the pressure to live up to book fans expectations
