If you've yet to hear about Divergent, you need to stop what you're doing a grab a copy of the book, because next year will finally see the first chapter of the trilogy written by Veronica Roth unleashed onto the big screen. But while you might think that all that action-packed drama would be the perfect way for Theo James to show off his manliness, it was actually Shailene Woodley who had the head for heights when it came to climbing an 80ft ferris wheel for the movie.

Set in a futuristic Chicago where society is split into factions based on personality traits, the film centres around Tris, who decides to leave her family behind to join Dauntless, the brave. But learning to fight isn't half of it and soon Tris finds she has to face fears bigger than she's ever dreamed of.

Catching up with author Veronica Roth and of course Shailene, who plays Tris, we couldn't resist finding out just how she got on with the Dauntless stunts. Apparently she couldn't have loved it more, even when it came to chucking herself of buildings and climbing a massive ferris wheel and it was actually co-star Theo, who plays Four, who was slightly left quaking in his boots.

But while the rest of us just don't know what to think about it all, it turns out Veronica and Shailene have been waiting to have the big conversation about how things end for Tris...

 


So what do you make of all that then? WELL excited to see the movie?
