Rick Riordan introduces new cast for the Disney + Percy Jackson series

Lightning Thief writer and executive producer Rick Riordan announced three new cast members …

First, for whatever reason, Rick Riordan likes to post news updates when I drive my kids to or from school. Secondly, here I am saying “Thank you” to Rick and his crew for being so transparent in their communication methodology.

OBS, campers! 🔱 Meet more of our amazing guest stars at #PercyJackson and The Olympians, who are coming @DisneyPlus.

Today we have some good new news. Three actors join the cast.

Rick is talking

Joining the squad is:

  • Olivea Morton – “Nancy Bobofit”
  • Dior Goodjohn – «Clarisse LaRue»
  • Charlie Bushnell – “Luke Castellan”

On RickRiordan.comRick wrote:

Born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada, thirteen-year-old Olivea discovered her passion for acting while performing at her local theater. She began pursuing roles in film and television, and first appeared in commercials … Her hobbies include archery, cycling, ice skating and swimming. The latter skill is especially important, as she may be taking an unexpected swim like Nancy Bobofit, Percy’s nemesis at Yancy Academy!

Dior is a multi-talented actor, singer, songwriter and dancer. Only 15 years old, she is no stranger to acting … Like Clarisse LaRue, child of Ares, she is a strong-willed and competitive fighter who does not let much stand in the way of winning. She is intensely loyal to her close friends, and is also quite intimidating to newcomers – watch out, Percy!

A Los Angeles native, Charlie Bushnell, had a revelation in 2017 when his best friend, the family dog ​​Patito, passed away. Watching “Stranger Things” to distract from the loss, he announced to the family “I can do it!” […this] quickly led to auditions and his first role, a regular series like Bobby Cañero-Reed in the groundbreaking Disney + original series “Diary of a Future President”. As Luke Castellan, chief adviser to the Hermes cabin, Luke will soon be one of the most influential people in Percy’s life.

Finally, Riordan added the news and said, “All three of these young actors are doing an incredible job on the set … More news to come.”

I’m looking forward to it, Rick. Fortunately, my children are out of school this summer.
