Yesterday MTV aired a behind the scenes look of their Divergent video. Josh Horowitz hosted the interviews.
I transcribed the video so that you can read along with what the actors are saying:
Theo James on the Divergent world: Sure the world is 60 years in the future. we assume there was some kind of pivotal war. as a result they had to adapt and create this new faction system.
Shailene Woodley on Tris: The interesting thing about Tris is that she’s not a badass, she’s not a superhero, she’s not an action star. and i think that there is something really refreshing about bringing a very normal adolescent to life in a way where she has to rise to the occasion and find her brave heart and be really courageous in situations she doesn’t necessarily want to be.
Miles Teller on Peter: What I like most about Peter is his whole spirit. I think he’s got great fashion sense. and honestly I really dig my hair. I think peter has got really cool hair.
Zoe Kravitz on Christina: Christina comes from candor. She transfers herself over to Dauntless. so her and Tris meet and in this time where they both left their factions and they’re kind of starting this new adventure together and they find comfort in each other. they end of being besties
Theo James on Four: I think when you find Four he is extremely closed and damaged and learned to exist in this world the best way he can. he’s chosen not to be a leader.has been asked several times, he chooses to take a step back and as things change people start to die and things go wrong then he realizes that something needs to be done and some things need to be done.
Shailenne Woodley and Theo James on their relationship and chemistry:
Shailene: I really love Theo. He’s very pure. Speaking of, here he is!
Theo: The chemistry is very pivotal but it also needs to be natural and real and i think that is something we stumbled upon quit easily
Veronica Roth: The chemistry between them is also really strong so that was also really important.
V Roth on differences from book to movie: What they’ve done is sort of change the order a little bit. I feel that they keep all of the most pivotal scenes and maybe wove them together in a different way so I’ve been pretty satisfied with what they’ve done so far.
What do you guys think? Wasn’t this a great behind the scenes looks from MTV?!
