Alexandra Daddario has revealed there could "definitely" be another Percy Jackson movie.

The 28-year-old actress played Annabeth Chase in the first two films, in 2010 and 2013, and said she would be open to reprising the role.

"I haven't heard anything about it. There could definitely be one, but I would be surprised," she said.

"I would love to make one if they'd want me to."

The True Detective star said being cast in the first movie gave her acting career a real boost.

"The first Percy Jackson film was a time of great joy and fulfilment and I felt like I'd taken a huge step forward in my career," she said.

"There's times when you can't get a job when I'm less happy, but as I've gotten older, maybe a little bit wiser, I'm just a bit more content with things, taking things as they come, so at the moment I'm very happy."

Alexandra is currently preparing for upcoming disaster film San Andreas in Australia, honing her action skills.

"For the movie I'm doing now, it's the same [preparation] as the Percy Jackson movies; I'm physically active and really focusing on getting more muscle and getting in better shape because of the action required," she said.

But the actress confessed she isn't in a hurry to repeat some parts of her rigorous workout schedule.

"I climbed Mount Warning the other day. I think you'd have to drag me kicking and screaming to go back there!" she admitted.
