1. How did the idea for the Divergent trilogy come together, and now that you’ve finished, how has it evolved?

Originally it came from this concept in psychology called exposure therapy where people with phobias are repeatedly exposed to their fears until their brain reconditions it. That’s the little nugget, and it took on a life of its own. As Tris grows up and her world gets bigger, I’m doing the same thing at the same time. When this began, I’d just graduated college and my world just kept getting bigger.

2. What are fans are dying to see in the final book?

3. You went to Northwestern and live in Chicago now. Why did you use your city as a dystopian setting?

There’s something really fun about it because it’s so clean compared to other cities. Imagining it all destroyed and wrecked was really interesting — not that I want to see it destroyed and wrecked! It also just kind of appeared out of nowhere. When I wrote the first draft of Divergent, there were just a lot of trains and this marsh and I just realized that it’s already in Chicago. My favorite buildings, Sears (Willis)Tower and the Merchandise Mart, are both in the books. So are the Ferris wheel and the Bean.

4. Did you envision certain characters in the starring roles for the movie adaptation?

I don’t really have a clear image of my characters as I’m writing — it’s kind of like I’m squinting at it from a distance. They’re just blurry people who do things. But when Shailene (Woodley) and Theo (James) were cast and I saw their screen test together, it was absolutely perfect.

5. What writers have inspired you?

I had this stretch of childhood where I read a ton of children’s fiction, then I grew up and read it all over again. I’m a big fan of Lois Lowry, of The Giver, and Madeleine L’Engle, of A Wrinkle in Time. But my dad also instilled in me a science fiction streak. I read Dune by Frank Herbert when I was far too young to understand it.

In Hollywood, everyone loves to make an actor part of a lineage. For stars burgeoning into big time fame, there’s a tendency in the tabloids to lean on an easy crutch: “This star is the next [fill in the blank].” For Shailene Woodley, the 21-year-old actor whose breakout role came alongside George Clooney in 2011’s The Descendants, the options of choice are as follows:

a) Emma Watson

b) Jennifer Lawrence

c) Kristen Stewart

See, the young actor just finished filming Divergent, a futuristic, dystopian film based on the Young Adult trilogy by Veronica Roth. And if you’re remotely familiar with the names Hermione Granger, Katniss Everdeen, or Bella Swan, you know what’s next. Serial movies, particularly Young Adult series, can be the ticket to absurd amounts of fame and enough work locked-in to define an actor’s entire career (who among us didn’t think of Harry Potter as Watson got Bling Ring on us with gyrating dance moves?). Then it’s pixie haircuts, nude magazine covers, and half-baked album releases to get the public to shake loose the all-consuming role.
