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.
In this new still released today from USA Today, We get to see Caleb (Ansel Elgort) and Tris (Shailene Woodley) at the choosing ceremony! Check out what they have to say below:
CHICAGO — The sacred Choosing Ceremony Day has arrived on the set of Divergent.
One by one, the candidates step onto the marble altar in front of hundreds of citizens, standing before five ceramic bowls to make their fateful decision: Which of the five social factions will they join in the socially stratified world of this dystopian future?
The heroine of Divergent, Tris (Shailene Woodley), steps cautiously onto the altar, stopping before the ceremonial bowls representing Abnegation (the selfless), Candor (the honest), Amity (the peaceful), Erudite (the intelligent) and Dauntless (the brave).
She pauses for 15 seconds, deep in thought, before finally drawing a knife over her palm above her chosen bowl.
“Dauntless,” a voice cries out.
The Dauntless faction in the auditorium lets out a berserk cheer in the way that only the chosen protectors of a society can. But Tris still seems distracted as she makes her way over to her new family and sits quietly in the front row. Click to continue reading Continue reading
