Here’s a nice story that shows Hollywood is still a Dream Factory. Paloma Kwiatkowski has been cast as Thalia in Fox 2000’s Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Sea Of Monsters, the Thor Freudenthal-directed sequel. 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. She is represented by Canadian agent Carrie Wheeler, manager Darren Goldberg, and attorney Neil Meyer. Karen Rosenfelt, Chris Columbus, Mark Radcliffe and Michael Barnathan are producing.
