Even Percy Jackson & the Olympians: star Walker Scoball forgets his lines sometimes (and tells us about it cheekily)

"I don't, like, forget lines a lot, but when I do, it's bad."

Percy Jackson and the Olympians debuted on Disney+ in December and is a bonafide hit. This is due in no small part to the talent of series star, Walker Scobell. Scobell came into many people's collective consciousness in 2022 with the release of Netflix's The Adam Project before setting into the eponymous role of Percy Jackson, Rick Riordan's Greco-Roman epic hero for a new generation. Scobell, along with castmates Leah Sava Jeffries (Beast), and Aryan Simhadri (Cheaper by the Dozen), recently sat down with Popverse's Ashley Victoria Robinson in Los Angeles to pull back the curtain on what it took to bring Percy Jackson and the Olympians to streaming worldwide.

Happily for us, Popverse’s Ashley V. Robinson knows how to ask the tough questions including: "Who is most likely to forget a line?". Scobell's answer reveals what happens on the set of Percy Jackson and the Olympians when Percy Jackson is having a brain fart.
