Actress Kate Winslet recently sat down for an exclusive interview with USA Today from the Divergent set. In addition to the interview, USA Today also released the first still of the actress as her chilly evil character Jeanine Matthews. Winslet’s character is the protector of the dystopian society of the Divergent world and the leader of the Erudite faction, making her the antagonist of the story.

At the age of 16, the people of the Divergent world must make a choice as to which of the five factions they will join. From there, they must then go through a series of initiations to officially become a part of that faction. Tris Prior (Shailene Woodley) and her family are first introduced to Jeanine Matthews on the day Tris has to choose her faction.

Winslet had this to say about her character when talking to USA Today: “That’s the whole point of Jeanine. She walks down the corridor and sort of just leaves this vapor trail. I knew I had to bring that intimidation.”

The actress is also currently pregnant with her third child and because it is summer time, it has not been very forgiving temperature wise on the Chicago sets. However, the actress is a trooper had had this to say about the summer heat: “I’m holding up fine. I’m pregnant, but it’s not at the point where it becomes impossible. Sometimes you just have to roll with it.”

Divergent - Kate Winslet

Due to her pregnancy, Winslet was late showing up to the Chicago sets and did not have a chance to properly meet her cast mates. She used this fact to her advantage: “I wanted to break it and say, ‘It’s OK, I’m really fun. I promise.’ But I thought, just for today, I’d let them think that I am a complete bitch.”

Author Veronica Roth is very impressed with Winslet work on the film so far and is excited about what she has brought to her character. Roth had this to say to USA Today: “Kate has gone with a very subtle, even well-meaning villain. She’s not a mustache-twirling Disney type. She brings the menace in a very quiet way.”

Rising Star Monday – Sam Claflin

Lionsgate recently announced that actor Sam Claflin will indeed be playing the coveted role of Finnick Odair in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, which has gained Claflin even more attention in the entertainment world. That is why he is this week’s “Rising Star” here on TrulyLuminary.

Sam Claflin broke into the business in 2010 with roles in the television shows The Pillars of the Earth and Any Human Heart. That same year, he was cast as Phillip Swift in the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean film, On Stranger Tides, which was released on May 20, 2011. Most recently, Claflin appeared in Snow White and The Huntsman as Prince William; Snow White’s childhood friend. He is currently filming the John Pogue horror The Quiet Ones with co-stars Erin Richards and Jared Harris. And finally, after months of rumors and speculation, Hunger Games fans got what they had been waiting for when Lionsgate officially announced  that Sam Claflin will be portraying Finnick Odair in Catching Fire.

People Magazine wrote a post about Claflin titled “Five Things to Know About Sam Claflin,” so here are five things that you Hunger Games fans might want to know about our Finnick Odair:

1. He originally dreamed of being a pro soccer player.
Claflin, who hails from Norwich in the east of England, always wanted to play professional soccer for Norwich City when he grew up. “I played football every day of the week [as a kid],” he told the Sun newspaper last year. “Any evening I would be playing on our local road with my brothers and friends. It was 24/7 football back then.” Claflin trained with the club’s youth team, but at 16 he broke his ankle, and his soccer dreams were over. By that time, though, he had caught the acting bug. “It was very daunting, that big career change,” he said. “But luckily it worked out.”

2. He’s one of Hollywood’s fastest rising young stars.
Following roles in the TV series The Pillars of the Earth and Any Human Heart, Claflin got his big break in 2011, playing Phillip Swift in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. He followed that up with the plum role of William in Snow White and the Huntsman, opposite Kristen Stewart. “I’m truly sort of flabbergasted,” he told MTV at the time about working with the Twilight star.

3. With his humble background, he’s a bit starstruck by show business.
“My mum is a classroom assistant at the high school I went to and Dad is an accountant and a finance manager for a charity radio station,” he told the Sun. “I can’t quite fathom what is going on with my life at the moment. For me to be able to play across from some of the great names is unbelievable. It is so bizarre. I used to play with Lego, and now I am a Pirates of the Caribbean Lego figurine.”

4. He has a superstar for a mentor.
Starring in the Pirates movie brought another benefit for Claflin: He got some guidance from one of Hollywood’s biggest names. “Johnny Depp gave me the best advice,” he told the L.A. Times Magazine. “He said, ‘Stay grounded. Remember where you came from.’”

5. Sorry, folks, he’s off the market.
Claflin would be one of Hollywood’s most eligible young bachelors … if he weren’t already dating British actress Laura Haddock, 26. “Back in London and reunited with @laurajhaddock,” he wrote on Twitter last week. “Happy happy happy.”

Be sure to keep an eye on this one, he is going to become very famous because of Catching Fire and will go on to have a great career in the film industry.
