Percy Jackson Disney+ Series Announces Grover Underwood and Annabeth Chase Casting

Celebrated author Rick Riordan has finally completed the casting for the upcoming Disney+ show based on his Percy Jackson and the Olympian series of novels, as he revealed the actors playing Annabeth Chase and Grover Underwood.

Last month, Riordan introduced fans to the series’ protagonist in Percy Jackson, who will be played by Walker Scobell. The actor was last seen in the Netflix movie The Adam Project, while playing the younger version of Ryan Reynolds’ character.

Following Scobell’s announcement, Riordan revealed that he would soon unveil the actors, who would play Annabeth and Grover to finish off the trio of characters that are integral in the series, and after waiting for a few weeks, the author showcased the actors in his recent blog post.

When it comes to Grover Underwood, the character will be played by Aryan Simhadri, who was last seen in the Disney reboot of Cheaper By The Dozen starring Zach Braff and Gabrielle Union. He also played DJ Rhea’s younger brother in Disney’s Spin. In his statement, Riordan mentioned how Simhadri’s humor and his dynamic with Scobell would work wonders in the upcoming show.

Along with Grover, we also get our casting for Annabeth Chase in Leah Sava Jeffries. Just like Simhadri, Jeffries is a veteran, as she played roles in shows like Empire and Rel. Along with that, she will soon feature as Idris Elba’s daughter in the upcoming blockbuster Beast. Fans will be excited to hear what the actress will bring to the table, and according to Riordan, she is absolutely perfect as Annabeth Chase.

With the main casting complete, fans want to hear more about the show’s filming, which is due to start soon in Vancouver, as they can’t wait to see the stories from the book come to life.
