John Green's 2005 YA novel Looking For Alaska is finally a TV show! It's not available in the Philippines just yet (it's a HULU OG series), but we know you're super psyched to watch it!

Here's a guide to the cast of characters of this new teen show:

Miles "Pudge" Halter

Miles, the main character of the story, transfers to Culver Creek Preparatory School and ends up falling for a girl named Alaska. He is played by 20-year-old Charlie Plummer in the series. Charlie previously starred in the films King Jack (2015) and Lean On Pete (2017).

Alaska Young

In the novel, Alaska is wild, unpredictable, and is struggling with her mom's death. The character is brought to life by 23-year-old Kristine Froseth, who is familiar to us because of her roles in Sierra Burgess Is A Loser (2018) and The Society (2019).

Chip Martin

Denny Love plays Miles' roommate, a scholarship student whose nickname is "The Colonel." He loves pranking the wealthy students of their school! Denny's previous projects include Chicago P.D. (2014), Empire (2016), and Lucifer (2015).
