What did we discover about the group of dudes set to become
household names once this film storms towards theaters? Read on to find out!
Who plays: Caleb Prior
Ansel was hanging in his New
York City home with his friend when he got the call that he landed the role of Divergent protagonist Tris’ older
brother Caleb. “I remember it clearly: It was a rainy day and we both freaked
out—like the typical way they do in the movies where they jump up and yell,” he
says. What else do you need to know about Ansel?
He’s a family guy. “I think Caleb is very righteous. He always views [things as] what’s
right for the world. I’m different. I think I’m righteous and I fight for
what’s right, but I get suckered into like the human connection and I probably
wouldn’t be able to do the kind of thing’s he’s done, to his family, to my
sister, you know?”
He’s itching for The Great White Way. “I started in musical theater, so a dream role of
mine is Javert in Les Mis on
Broadway. I can’t wait to be old enough.”
He’s a sucker for classics. “I like The
Grapes of Wrath (by John Steinbeck) and The Lord of the Rings (by J. R. R. Tolkien). The
Grapes of Wrath because it’s real gritty
and The Lord of the Rings because
it’s a big epic. I think that’s what I [also] like about Divergent—it’s an epic tale that stands for something else besides
what’s really on the surface.”

sure to check out GL’s April/May 2014 issue
(on stands March 17).
Who plays: Four
One look at the real-life
Four and we get why Tris can’t get this Dauntless leader out of her head. What
else do we dig about this sporty stunner?
He’s a boxer and brings his athletic skills to the
screen. “There’s a great move at one
point where someone goes to punch me in the head and I use my head to deflect
his hand. It’s kind of efficient and aggressive.”
He didn’t dive deep into Veronica Roth’s books before
the film. “I made an active choice
not to. I didn’t want to be too influenced by other material and wanted to
bring my own take [on Four] to the table.”
He’s pensive. “Four thinks before he speaks,
and I think I’m like that, too. And I suppose I share my more introverted side
with him in some respects.”
Who plays: Eric
The makeup department works
magic. When chatting with Jai while in full costume, we were a little
intimidated by the pierced and tatt’d harsh Dauntless leader. Beyond the
wardrobe, though, this cutie is super sweet. There are a few other things you
need to know about the star…
He’s Australian. “I’ve done a couple of jobs now where I’ve had to [do an American
accent] so it’s gotten easier. But there’s always a dialogue coach to keep me
He likes playing a movie villain. “It can be fun. I mean you certainly get to do things that you probably otherwise wouldn’t really agree with.”
He has a need for speed. “Right now, [I’m obsessed with] vintage Japanese motorcycles.”
Who plays: Peter
Fresh off his role as
playing Shailene Woodley’s love interest in Spectacular
Now, Miles was more than willing to team up with Shai once again—this time
as a nagging tough guy.
He originally tried out for Four. “I auditioned for Four and then I didn’t hear
anything for like a year. Then the directors said, ‘How do you feel about the
part of Eric?’ I didn’t think that was going to work because Eric needs to be
intimidating. So then they said, ‘Take a look at the role of Peter.’ I had just
worked with Shailene where she played my girlfriend, so I thought it would be
nice to play this guy who’s kind of a bully to her.”
He gets girls. “I have two older sisters, so I know that
relationship when a [guy] keeps on annoying a girl. I understand it.”
He knows how to relax. “I love to be lazy. I have an extremely hard work
ethic, but when I’m not working, I like to just hang out. The California
weather’s so nice, taking drives while listening to the radio with the window
open is one of my favorite things.”
Who plays: Will
Talk about a British
invasion. This cutie knows how to lay on the charm! Playing Tris’ close bud
Will in Divergent, we wouldn’t mind
being buds with Ben in real life. Here’s why…
He’s a mama’s boy. “The reason why I was so attracted to the script and story is because I’ve always been obsessed with that idea of bravery. My mother is one of the bravest people I know. She’s a single mom of four kids, but she’s done some of the bravest things I’ve ever seen.”
He’s a football (soccer to us Americans) fanatic. “I’m a big Queens Park Rangers fan and when I was traveling in Asia, I booked an appointment for a Queens Park Rangers tattoo. In another life, I actually went to the appointment and didn’t sleep through it.”
He’s a foodie. What was Ben’s favorite Divergent scene
to film? “When we all sit down to
eat and Tris eats hamburgers for the first time. It was a really fun scene
because I felt like it had a lot of spirit. There were so many extras [there]
and a lot of stuff going on. Plus, I always enjoy eating”
Who plays: Al
Who was the first person
Christian told when he found out he landed the part of the clumsy and quiet Al?
His apartment manager! “I rand down three flights of stairs and was like, ‘Hey,
I’m going to get my rent paid!’” he jokes. Admitting he connects with Al on
many levels, there are a few other things you need to know about this
He’s a bookworm. “I really like reading. I read Divergent [and then] bought other books that are similar, like A Fighter’s Heart by Sam Sheridan.”
He’s royalty…or at least would like to be. “I would [like to
play] the prince in The Little Prince.”
He’s humble. “I never thought that something like [landing Divergent] would happen
to me. I’ve been like a kid, it’s so exciting.”
