In this week's new DVD and Blu-ray release Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief, the title character (played by Logan Lerman) is assisted on his quest by Annabeth, daughter of the Greek goddess Athena.

Annabeth is played by Alexandra Daddario, whose career started with a role in long-running TV soap All My Children in 2002 and 2003. She went on to appear in shows such as The Sopranos, Law & Order and the Us remake of Life on Mars.

Here's what she had to say about her leap to the big screen with the Percy Jackson film, which has topped the DVD and Blu-ray charts in its first week on release.

Alexandra Daddario: She is a very tough badass girl who was a lot of fun to play. She is a great fighter and warrior but still is a sweet girl.
