Nov 21, 2013  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

Inside the World of Divergent: Stars Chat About Auditions, Training, Fears & Favorite Scenes

Mar 10, 2014  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

Divergent is without a doubt, one of the most highly anticipated flicks to come around since the first Hunger Games, with fans of the books practically salivating at the thought of seeing their favorite characters come to life. Sure, most people are excited to see Shailene Woodley and Theo James portray the two lovers at the heart of the story, but personally, I was more excited to see Ben Lloyd-Hughes and Christian Madsen play my two favorites from the book: Will and Al.
