Andrew Prior actor Tony Goldwyn talks filming Divergent’s Prior family scenes and more

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.

Filming for ‘Divergent’ is winding down but we get to see a lot before it does! (Choosing Ceremony!)

Divergent Fans once again comes to our rescue with all the details!

Twitter has gone crazy about the new filming location in Chicago for the Divergent Movie!  Fans and extras have been talking all about what actors and actresses attended to today’s filming and it sounds like  most of the cast was there!

First let’s talk about the location, today filming was indoors at the Seventeenth Church of Christ on East Wacker in Downtown.  It’s a really cool church and it seats 764 people!  That’s a lot of extras!  This gives us a little insight to the large casting call for the next couple days of filming.

What cast members have been reportedly in attendance?

The first sightings by fans of Kate Winslet happened today! No one has gotten a photo of our Jeanine Matthews yet, but we at least have a description! DivergentFan Shelby Wilson said, “she had really blonde shoulder length hair and a royal blue long coat.” We asked if she was wearing her Erudite glasses and Shelby goes on to say, “no glasses, but she was breaking for lunch so she could have taken them off already.” We can’t wait to see the first pictures of Jeanine, maybe this will happen at Comic-Con!

An extra named Dion got a photo with Zoe Kravitz (Christina)!

According to other tweets, Ray Stevenson (Marcus Eaton), Shailene Woodley (Tris), Ashley Judd (Natalie Prior), Theo James (Four), Ansel Elgort (Caleb), Mekhi Phifer (Max), Tony Goldwyn (Andrew Prior) were all seen.  There may have been more main cast members like Jai Courtney (Eric), but we didn’t see him mentioned.

Head on over to Divergent Fans to see the awesome pictures of the inside of the Church they found!
Then, This lucky lady Shelby (@Shelby19Wilson on Twitter) shared some great pictures from visiting the set on the 3rd of July….and she met Shailene Woodley again!

Breaking Down the Divergent Stills- Real Talk

posted by: aprilfaithspice

We now have 13 official movie still’s from Divergent. In my haste to get them up as soon as possible the other day, I did not take the time to sit and fully LOOK at each image! So I thought I would go over each one and point out the basic things that I see that I found exciting and interesting! 

1. This is Neil Burger (director) talking to Theo James (Four) and Jai Courtney (Eric).  Obviously the first thing I see in this picture is Four. Duh. But VERY quickly my attention is diverted to Eric. Oh My Gosh. He looks JUST how I pictured him and loathed to hate him in the book! It’s perfect! I’m pretty sure they are in the training room. I think you can see the bulls eye’s from the first still released with Tris along the back wall. I can make out who the other people in the back ground are.
