Perks Of Being A Wallflower hits UK cinemas today, giving us all a good excuse to go see quite how cute 20-year-old Logan Lerman is in the lead role. In the film Lerman plays Charlie, an endearing and naive outsider, coping with first love (Emma Watson), the suicide of his best friend, and his own mental illness, while struggling to find a group of people with whom he belongs. The film also stars queer actor Ezra Miller as Charlie’s friend (and Watson’s character’s stepbrother) Patrick.
While he may be only 20, Lerman is already a bit of an industry veteran, having made his film debut playing Mel Gibson’s youngest son in The Patriot back in 2000. Since then he’s appeared in What Women Want (that time as a younger version of Mel Gibson’s character), The Butterfly Effect, The Number 23 and 3:10 To Yuma. However he came to most people’s attention playing the title role in Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief.
Following that breakout role he’s appeared The Three Musketeers and now Perks Of Being A Wallflower. He returns to the role of Percy Jackson next year in Sea Of Monsters.
