Cannot play media. Sorry, this media is not available in your territory.

Percy Jackson and the Olympians are the latest heroes to walk out of a book and onto the big screen.

As the first film in the series - Percy Jackson And The Lightning Thief - hits cinemas, we sent Sonali to chat to some of the stars.

Brandon T. Jackson plays the part of half-human, half goat satyr Grover.

Watch the clip to find out how Brandon coped with all the special effects during filming, and what made his trousers start smoking!
