‘Divergent: Allegiant’ Movie Updates: Theo James Admits He And Shailene Woodley Felt Awkward on the Set of ‘Insurgent’

“Divergent: Allegiant” is still months away from its release in theatres, but fans are very much excited to see what’s next in store for Theo James and Shailene Woodley in the movie adaptation of Veronica Roth’s “Divergent” series. While Woodley and James’ chemistry exudes onscreen, the 30-year-old actor admitted that he and Woodley felt awkward on the set of “Insurgent.” Read on to learn more about this scoop.

“Allegiant” movie will see the return of Theo James as Tobias Eaton aka Four and Shailene Woodley as Beatrice Prior aka Tris. While some people may say that James and Woodley are the perfect onscreen couple with their undeniable chemistry in front of the cameras and behind the scenes, James admitted that they both had to adjust when they returned for “Insurgent.”


“One thing Shai and I found is that when you come back after a year and at first you think it’s fine because we’ve done these characters, it’s all good, then you get on set and you do that first scene and it’s like oh. It doesn’t just come back, you’ve got to click into gear,” James told Flickering Myth.

James also revealed that he was very happy that “Insurgent” turned out to be “more adult” than the first installment, “Divergent.” He, however, admitted that creating a sequel was much harder because there are expectations among fans and viewers alike.

Meanwhile, Fashion & Style posted several photos of Woodley, James and the rest of the cast on the set of the upcoming movie, “Divergent: Allegiant – Part One.” The outlet noted that some of the photos seemingly hinted of a conflict taking place between Tris and Four.

“The Fault in Our Stars” actress also debuted her new short ‘do, as she went back on set in Atlanta together with Miles Teller, Zoe Kravitz and Ansel Elgort.

“Divergent: Allegiant – Part 1” premieres on March 18, 2016. Stay tuned on Movie News Guide (MNG) for more updates.
