Great news! Right now there are auditions open for the “Percy Jackson and the Olympians” television show that will play on Disney+. This is the beginning of the preliminary search for the title role of, “Percy Jackson.”
Rick Riordan is the author of the “Percy Jackson and the Olympians” book series. Riordan hopes that the actor to play “Percy Jackson” will be around twelve-years-old old to sixteen-years-old. He wants “Percy Jackson” to be as similar to the “Percy Jackson” of the books as he can be. He wants to see the actor who plays “Percy Jackson” age on-screen just like “Percy” did in Riordan’s books.
Disney wants people of different ethnicity to enter an audition tape.
“We are committed to diverse, inclusive casting. For every role, please submit qualified performers, without regard to disability, gender, race and ethnicity, age, color, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity or any other basis prohibited by law.”
The production team behind the “Percy Jackson” television show is not looking for the actors who will play Annabeth Chase, Grover, and Chiron yet. The production team wants to find the right “Percy Jackson” right now. The reason for this is because the actor who is chosen to play “Percy Jackson” will affect the other television roles.
