I’d been reading scripts after the fourth Harry Potter movie around the age of 15, 16 and just didn’t read anything that I really loved instantly..it’s almost not that I had lost interest, but my agent was starting to get stressed. I wasn’t really into anything and then I read Perks of Being a Wallflower, and it’s so beautifully written and so funny. I was incredibly moved by it and just instantly knew A) that the movie had to be made and B) that I had to play Sam. I really wanted to play Sam, and was just really drawn to her, so when I met with Stephen, we just instantly clicked and it felt like I was meeting an old friend. Then I met with Logan, and I knew he was the perfect Charlie, and it was just a really obvious, obvious choice for me.
