{Watch}: #TheoJames Talks Prepping for #Divergent

A new Theo James interview has surfaced and it features the Divergent actor talking about how he prepared for playing Four and not being typecast in the future. Watch it here:


One of the pre-summer blockbusters that has critics buzzing, not only for the action but the story line as well, is the new movie Divergent. The film’s star/male lead, Theo James, got a chance to speak with VladTV about his character, the complex concepts of the film, and how exactly he plans to handle the fame that will soon follow.
The movie, which takes place in the future, follows a plotline where all humans are divided into very specific groups, called factions, based on human virtues, and people that don’t fit into these groups are labeled as Divergent.
When asked how he mentally prepared for this type of role, Theo said he had to really dissect the mindset to get into it. “The key of the faction system [isn’t] one dimensional people, it’s just five different ways of thinking,” said James. “There are various different people within those factions but they are dedicated to a way of thinking and a certain philosophy. So that was something I had to kind of make sure that felt right to me in my head so that I would buy their world.”
When asked about how he plans on handling the newfound fame, and what direction he wanted his career to go in, Theo felt it is, in ways, a double-edged sword. “I think it’s great to be doing something that could potentially open doors that weren’t open before, but on the other hand I have to make sure that I’m not categorized into one thing.” He continued, “In terms of longevity of an actor you need to make smart choices.”
Watching Theo James in this interview, it’s evident the amount of respect and devotion he has for his craft and it definitely translates onscreen. Check out the interview and Divergent, which is in theaters right now.
