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).
