People Magazine recently shared two exclusive stills from the set of the highly anticipated adaptation, Divergent. Both of these new stills feature actress Shailene Woodley in action as her character Tris.
Woodley has been doing most of her on stunts on the project and she had this to say when she spoke with Emily Strohm from People Magazine: “I have never done an action-type film. So it’s really exciting to jump into this.”
She also had this to say about why she chose to do most of her own stunts: “I’m such a physical, active person. So to be able to incorporate that with legit fight training and climbing up and down Ferris wheels, I’m so lucky.”
As previously mentioned, the Divergent world is separated into five factions and each faction has specific values and rules they follow and enforce. In Abnegation they value selflessness, in Erudite they value intelligence, in Candor they value honesty, in Amity they value peace, and in Dauntless they value bravery.
Divergent is directed by directed by Neil Burger and also stars Theo James, Kate Winslet, Maggie Q, Zoe Kravitz, Ansel Elgort, Jai Courtney, Miles Teller, Ashley Judd, and Ray Stevenson.
