Logan Lerman thinks he has a lot in common with his character in the ‘Percy Jackson’ films because they both have confidence issues.


The actor is set to reprise his heroic role in new fantasy adventure film ‘Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters’ and thinks he has similar traits to the half-human, half-god character he portrays in the blockbuster franchise.

He said: “I have a lot in common with Percy. Everyone has experienced self-doubt. I’ve felt that many times. I feel that on every film I make – initially I have to convince myself of my own worth and then go out there and try my best. I always go in very insecure, but I feel that anxiety and stress is fuel for the fire to try to find what I need to discover.”

Although ‘Percy Jackson’ – which is based on Rick Riordan’s best-selling young adult novels – is a hugely successful franchise, Lerman insists its not like a “typical” movie series because of the long gap between 2010’s ‘Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief’ and the new adventure.

He explained to the Metro newspaper: “In a weird way, it’s not your typical franchise film. If you look at other franchise movies out there, they shoot them back-to-back. These actors are locked in for seven years and make five films.

“‘Percy Jackson’ is completely different; it’s a slow-moving franchise. I did the first one when I was 17 and shot the second one when I was 20. I had a lot of time in between to take on other projects, so it’s like any other film except it is a big, international film.”
