What I like about the 'Underworld' thing is that it's a mix of cool genres, as well as creating its own message.
'Divergent' is a story about people who don't fit into a category - that is a big part of the message - but it's also about conformity and forcing people into these simple archetypes. At the end of the day, humans don't exist like that. We're multifaceted.
I want diversity in what I do, as that's what helps you in the long term. It's more fulfilling, and you'll have a longer shelf life as an actor.
Sometimes the best parts are the leading men. But the little parts can be similarly gratifying.
While I find my job as an actor challenging, I also think that there's fun in that challenge.
I know I often get a job because of how I look. I hope that I keep the job because of how I act.
Even though I'm an actor, I don't love sharing everything about myself. It's always good to keep a little bit for yourself.
Don’t care too much. Enjoy what makes you feel good, but don’t care too much. I think if you try too hard, you can see that.
