Shailene Woodley and Theo James are two stars on the rise. Playing Tris Prior and Tobias 'Four' Eaton respectively, they are set to take Hollywood by storm on the release of Divergent, the science fiction film based on the internationally best-selling novel by Veronica Roth. Shailene, best known as Amy Juergens in The Secret Life of the American Teenager and for starring in a Golden Globe-nominated performance alongside George Clooney in The Descendants, has come a long way in a short time. Born to parents employed in education, she worked in an American clothes store while pursuing acting in New York aged 18. Now 21, her television stints, fitted in with schoolwork and paid work over the years, have paid off as she has made the jump to big-budget movie actress.
Theo James is a well-educated English actor who has seen increasing success since his appearance as Jed Harper in Bedlam, featuring in The Inbetweeners Movie and Underworld: Awakening, as well as being cast as the lead role in the American crime drama Golden Boy. Both are young actors about to hit the big time, and are sure to gain legions of fans keen to read their stories.
