Cast as Tris

24 Sep, 2012

Woodley auditions for the character Tris and is cast after her first reading. Producer Doug Wick:

We have to believe that this girl, raised in Abnegation, has the inner strength to become a warrior. There has to be something original about her. She needs a few drops of James Dean. She has to be unconventional, she has to be Divergent. … By the end of the meeting, we know we had found the perfect Tris.
