How tall is Walker Scobell?

Walker Scobell is 4ft 9in and plays the titular role in Percy Jackson And The Olympians. It’s safe to say Walker Scobell is likely to be the smallest member of the cast but also the youngest too. Walker Scobell was born on 6 January 2009, making him just 13 years old.

Walker was born into a military family and has travelled throughout his life. He has lived all over the US, including sunny California and freezing Colorado. That’s why he’s skilled at skateboarding and snowboarding.

The youngster is a big fan of superhero movies, with favourites such as Deadpool and Avengers: Endgame. In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Scobell reproduced Deadpool’’s Wolverine monologue from Deadpool 2.

His Adam Project co-star Ryan Reynolds also recounted how impressed he was by Scobell’s memory. Reynolds said: “(Walker) does improvised stage direction and the exposition lines. The stuff you would never remember, the stuff that’s setting up the premise.”

While announcing the film’s cast on his website, author Rick Riordan stated: “Walker Scobell is an incredibly talented young man who blew us away with his audition tapes for the role of Percy.”

It seems the series has found the perfect Percy Jackson in Walker Scobell, he’s already a big fan of the novels. Rick Riordan wrote: “Aside from being a rising star, Walker is also a super-fan of the books. Having read everything through The Trials Of Apollo.”

We can’t wait to catch Scobell on screen, so stay tuned for more.
