Hi every one. :rolleyes:
Just wanted to put this out here. Alexandra Daddario who plays Kate on white-collar, is one of the key characters in the new movie: Percy Jackson & the Olympians the Lighting the Thief. :D

Way to go Alexandra!!! B)

The cool thing for white-collar fans is that, "kate" Alexandra Daddario,--who plays the character of "AnnaBeth Chase" the knowledgeable, trained, battle-wise sword-wielding warrior and half-blood demi-goddess daughter of the Greek goddess Athena (i.e. the Olympian Goddess of Wisdom and battle strategy), in the new Percy Jackson movie-- actually has the opportunity to act for more than 30 seconds at a time. :)

Alexandra Daddario really can act, although in Percy Jackson she appears to be a teenager. I do not know when the movie was filmed. Her character according to the film is 16 years old. How old is "Kate" supposed to be in White-collar? Has Jeff Easton indicated how old Kate's character was when she met Neal? :huh:

I had the opportunity to see the movie this weekend. "Percy Jackson ..." is a family fantasy adventure film, directed by Chris Columbus, who directed the first two Harry Potter films. Personally, I really enjoyed it, and I'm an Adult. Anyone who enjoys Harry Potter and is willing to watch a similarly styled movie centered around Greek mythology with a modern-day twist, as opposed to wizardry, will more than likely enjoy this film. :)

Again, If you want to see Alexandra Daddario in a key character role where she has the opportunity to really act, wield a sword, and get her hands dirty, in an imagined world where Greek mythology and the present-day collide, then definitely take the time to go see this film, and make-sure to stay for the entire duration of the ending credits B)

The Romans referred to Athena as "Minerva" and I personally would have loved to see 'Dame' Maggie Smith who plays Professor Minerva MaGonagall in the Harry Potter films, show up as "Athena" because there is something regal about 'Dame' Maggie Smith and I thought Alexandra Daddario played "Athena's" teenage and estranged but knowledgeable warrior-wise; battle ready and sword wielding HALF-blood daughter "AnnaBeth Chase" with both style, and class. Sadly 'Dame' Maggie Smith is not in the film. Hollywood always seems to choose to depict gods and goddesses as being perpetually in their 20s. :P

Hmmm. The Characters of "Kate/AnnaBeth Chase", apparently both have a thing for bad boys, who are either con men or individuals accused of a crimes without any proof, or respect to an accusations validity. (i.e. in white-collar its Neal, in this movie its Percy) If Kate's character winds up with "AnnaBeth's" fierce warrior skill/determination, and knowledgeable savvy, it will be very interesting to see what happens, when she and Neal, are able to interact together for more than thirty seconds. I think that "Kate" may be able to hold her own, and that the writers of white-collar have a plan which will surprise us when "Kate" has the opportunity to act, since I now know she definitely can act.

One odd, and strangely familiar white-collar parallel that I did note with respect to the "Percy Jackson ..." film's Media Press, is that although Alexandra Daddario is fully credited in the film, and is actually one of the films key/main characters, the press media either omits listing her as a key cast member, when the "stars" of the film are listed in an article, or appears to refer to her essentially as an afterthought, in the article. (Did she intentionally ask not to be mentioned by the media?) In reading reviews of the Percy Jackson movie I felt like I was looking at another agent "Clinton Jones" situation, since white-collar fans know that agent Clinton Jones is a key supporting part of white-collar but is not credited as a key/main cast member. I think he is listed as a guest star. Maybe Alexandra Daddario wants to remain mysterious continually. Hmmm.

...

I edited out your post so mine wouldn't be so long. :P

My main, possible, issue here has to do with the age statement. In the movie, I do not believe they have revealed the characters ages. In the books, yes she would be 16 by the end of the last novel. Chris altered the story line quite a bit. He may or may not use the prophecy regarding Percy turning 16. And even if he does, they might even change the age. In the book, Ares had stolen the book then. That is a bigger detail than the characters ages. Granted, I believe they show Percy in high school so he can't be older that 18.

And I thought Percy Jackson had a long title. lol

Agreed.

Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.

I agree she is a terrific actress, with quite the background in history and the classic arts. Neal needed someone with a little more wit and charm to school him, and I would pretty much say that would be Kate. B)

She's also heavily familiar with New York landmarks and Greek or even Roman mythology. They were talking on set about how Alexandria always loved to choose her scenes because she saw how similar each Greek God's lifestlye was to that of a mortal. Like in Hercules they make the same mistakes as a mortal and have the same type of weaknesses, she seemed to really enjoy capturing this in the movie and I heard some fine reviews from everybody who saw it.

There is a charm about the actress which leads me to believe we probably won't be seeing the best of her until Season 2. She's got some real talents to show off that nobody knows about yet. The cryptic manner she has left during the first half of White Collar, was just all deliberately done for the storyline and not much else.

Spoiler:
I bet in Season 2 when we find out about Neal's family Kate and Neal will get a face to face. Music Box mystery will finally get completely revealed. The fans have been clamoring it for a long while and I predict season 2 we will see just that. Neal's rival will get fully exposed at the end of season 1, this Keller guy is a foreshadowing of that. Maybe Keller will end up sharing an assortment of fake names like Neal does and the audience will learn he's really Andrew Marlowe just like we learn Nick Halden is truly Neal Caffrey. We will see a cliffhanger of Neal against the main boss who's probably his arch rival, and Fowler will be hired back on their payroll to mess with Kate. Finally Neal will get to Kate and they'll have some brief chat. A whole 5 months with lots of questions. And what's with those Valentines cards? How many cards has Neal's arch nemesis been keeping track of, that story and more are going to wrap up in season 2 - the finale.

I think they're 16. I think Percy drove them at one point in the movie. So the prophecy(if they include it. If, big IF, they get a sequel.) would happen at 21. Probably have to shoot at least two of the movies back to back.


I wish Annabeth had gotten even more to do, but they had to let Percy be the hero. I loved the line in the Lotus Casino when they were trippin out and she said, "How romantic!"

She had really good chemistry with Logan.

I was going to start one but I figured I jinx her and she'd be killed by the end of season one so I was going to wait.

If she does survive, I'll make one and you can merge this one into it.

...you do realize that Kate and Alexandra aren't the same person, right? Just because Alexandra has knowledge about certain things doesn't automatically make her character knowledgeable on the same topics. :P

This thread name should be changed to the Alexandra Daddario Fan Thread. If any of the other characters on the show appear in another production, are we going to have to threads dedicated to that movie or tv show too? The answer is no. We would merge it into their respective fan appreciation thread.

We have fan threads for the other actors/actresses.

She should have one too and not one dedicated to a single appearance.

ETA: The moderators will be changing the name of this thread to "The Official Alexandra Daddario Thread" for consistency with the threads dedicated to the other actors/actresses.

I just edited my previous post and sent a PM to DolfinSong as well.

Since I know what a huge AD fan you are, I'm sure you'll be pleased.

DolfinSong's post sounded a little too much like a PR statement to me but I'm glad you're happy.

Any chance her agent is a dolphin? :P

Hi, Li_Ann When I originally posted this thead, I looked for a correct thread to add it to, on the pinned thread index, but did not see one.

I was also not trying to make a PR statement.

I just wanted to let everyone know that "Kate" Alexandra Daddario was in the Percy Jackson Movie because many people on this board have been frustrated over the fact that none of us have really had the chance to see her act much.

I also thought I should at least mention the theme of the movie in case, nobody on this board had heard of it yet. I did my best to avoid spoilers. Hopefully people will go see it, to see Alexandra act, and then we can end the "Can she act?" issue.

I have not read the books the movie is based on, but I did like the movie. The characters looked about 16-17 as far as I could tell in the film.

How do I check a PM message?

My user name, does in fact have a personal significance, but I'm glad you like it :D .
