According to a report by Deadline, ‎Dior Goodjohn (Head of the Class), Charlie Bushnell (Diary of a Future President) will play Clarisse La Rue and Luke Castellan, respectively, in ‎‎Percy Jackson and the Olympians, a series currently in production on Disney+.

Besides them, Olivea Morton (‎‎And Yet They Speak)‎‎ will be Nancy Bobofit.

‎La Rue is a daughter of Ares, described as a strong, competitive fighter who doesn’t let anything stand in the way of her victory. Intensely loyal to her close friends, she is a bully to newcomers to Camp Half-Blood, including Percy.‎

‎Castellan is the counselor at the Hermes cabin and the nicest boy in the neighborhood. Luke looks more at home with a surfboard than in Greek armor. That doesn’t stop him from being the best swordsman in the region.

Bobofit always speaks his mind… at the expense of others. Proud and bully, Nancy takes special pleasure in teasing Percy.‎
