Shailene Woodley and Miles Teller on the run for the BAFTA EE Rising Star

Leave a comment

We love them as ‘Tris’ and ‘Peter’ in ‘The Divergent Series’ but Shailene Woodley and Miles Teller are able to play every role they want. With their stunning performance together in 2013’s ‘The Spectacular Now’  and individual performances in this year’s ‘The Fault in Our Star’ (Woodley) and ‘Whiplash’ (Teller) they’ve showed their talent one more time.

That’s why the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) wanted to honor them with nominations on their EE Rising Star Award, which designs young stars to watch in the future.

“Shailene Woodley found breakthrough success for her performance opposite George Clooney in The Descendants, and was later cast as the leading heroine in Divergent. Woodley has received critical acclaim for her portrayal of Hazel in The Fault in our Stars. Woodley’s TV credits include The Secret Life of the American Teenager and recurring roles on Crossing Jordan and The O.C. Shailene will soon be starring in both Insurgent and Allegient, and will begin filming the lead female role in Snowden.”

“Miles Teller made his feature screen debut opposite Nicole Kidman in Rabbit Hole. Last year, Teller firmly established himself on the film scene with his roles inWhiplash and Divergent. Teller will play Mr. Fantastic in The Fantastic Four with Michael B. Jordan, Kate Mara and Jamie Bell which will be released later this year. His previous film credits are diverse and include Footloose, Project X, 21 & Over, The Spectacular Now and That Awkward Moment in which he starred alongside Zac Efron.”
