Actor Tony Goldwyn, who plays Tris’s dad Andrew Prior in Divergent, talked to Hollywood Crush about the movie, and his role. Check out excerpts below:

On the Prior family:

“We had a wonderful scene that I participated in which was the family together the night before the choosing ceremony,” he said. “It was very good casting of the four of us, Shailene and Ashley [Judd] and Ansel [Elgort], the family, the Priors. We just had this great chemistry together and really felt like a family [living in] the world that Neil [Burger, director] created visually of the Abnegation. We had these two really wonderful days shooting these two scenes, and I’m really excited to see how those turn out.”

On possible reappearance in sequels:

“Veronica Roth said, flatteringly, one of her biggest regrets is that she didn’t write Andrew into the other books, that she killed Andrew off, so I don’t think there’s much hope for a resurrection of the ghost of Andrew. But we’ll see.”

What do you think? Additional scenes in Insurgent or Allegiant involving flashbacks wouldn’t hurt, would it? But I personally think those kind of scenes – if added at all – would stick to Natalie, since Tris sounded a bit closer to her mom.

Ansel Elgort who will be playing Caleb Prior, brother to our heroine Tris (Beatrice) Prior- Played by Shailene Woodley in the Divergent movie so kindly tweeted a picture of his on screen family on June 2nd, 2013. I for one was very excited because this was our first look at the family as a whole and Ashley Judd as Natalie Prior! Tony Goldwyn also plays Tris and Caleb’s father, Andrew Prior. Aren’t they adorable?
