Theo James on Playing FOUR, Acting, Choosing New Roles, & DIVERGENT Challenges

The spring blockbuster “Divergent” arrives on Blu-ray and DVD this week, bringing the first movie installment based on Veronica Roth’s young adult book series to home video. Earlier this year, Hero Complex sat down with James to talk about “Divergent,” Four’s particular brand of honor and what’s next:

Hero Complex: I understand that you’re a latecomer to the world of acting?
Theo James: I think it was always kind of around. I was always one of those annoying, performing little shits. To pretend that I just fell into it and was like, “Oh my God, whoopsy daisy!” — people sometimes pretend that, and it annoys me. Everyone’s going to try. It’s not like it just happens. But basically, I was 18, I finished school, I vaguely thought about it, but then I didn’t really know how to get into it. I didn’t know anyone involved in it. I went to university. I went away for a bit and traveled and kind of was at a crossroads post-university, and I thought, maybe this is worth a try. So I went to a drama school. Basically, an ex-girlfriend at the time was auditioning for these drama schools, and she kind of told me about it and how it worked, and it went from there. So I kind of started in 2010.

CinemaBlend: 5 Things To Know About DIVERGENT After You've Seen It

In anticipation of the home video release of Divergent, CinemaBlend had the opportunity to speak with director Neil Burger about the making of the film. Among the topics of discussion, finding the right Four, Kate Winslet's pregnancy, the zip-lining scene that almost didn't happen and the challenges the sequel faces.

1. The zip lining scene almost didn't happen.
Burger confirmed that the draft of the script he was working from originally didn't have the zip-lining scene in it. The reasoning behind almost omitting such an iconic scene from the book was that it wasn't really life-altering and it didn't present any kind of obstacle for Tris. "She’d had other victories already," Burger explained. "With the capture the flag scene which comes right before it."

But in the end, Burger fought to get the scene in the movie. "I just felt like it was such a great spectacle and also such a signature event in the book that it had to be in there," he said. It certainly was one of the most fun scenes to watch in the film, and it sounds like that was Burger's primary goal, as he said he worked really hard to make it as wild and fun a ride as possible.

Happy DIVERGENT DVD release day!

Christian Madson on Playing 'AL' in DIVERGENT & Relating to the Story

Christian Madsen who plays Dauntless initiate 'Al' talks about filming the movie, relating to Tris and more: You can read the full interview at Up&Comers. Below is an excerpt:

Al may have the physical advantage of being bigger than his peers, but that doesn’t work out for him during training so he resorts to betraying Tris, which is something he later ends up regretting. How was it like to film the big scene where Al tried to apologize to Tris?

When I read the script, I knew that was going to be a challenging scene because of the emotion behind it. When you shoot a movie like that, there’s a lot of times when you are having a lot of fun because there’s a lot of action sequences. Everyone literally became so close — you know, friendships, stuff like that. When we shot that scene when I was in the dining hall with Tris, I had to really separate myself from everybody because I had to go to that headspace of Al being very, very alone, trying to be somewhat of a forgiving — It was really hard that day.

MTV: Zoe Kravitz Talks About Scenes Between CHRISTINA & TRIS in INSURGENT

MTV chats to Zoe Kravitz (Christina) about INSURGENT:
-Great news from the “Divergent” universe, gang — not only is the special-features-loaded Blu-ray officially out on Tuesday (August 5), but the whole cast and crew is already hard at work filming scenes for the sequel, “Insurgent.” Speaking like a Candor, that’s pretty freaking awesome news.

However, don’t expect all the characters you fell in love with in the first movie to be quite as eager as we are to return to its chaotic universe. As Zoe Kravitz — who plays Cristina in the films — told MTV News over the phone, her girl power fueled friendship with Tris (Shailene Woodley) will be in serious jeopardy over the death of Cristina’s boyfriend Will in “Divergent.”
