Shailene Woodley explains Tris v. Dark Tris scene
During her interview with MTV, Josh Horowitz asks Shailene Woodley about a particular fight scene in the upcoming Divergent sequel, Insurgent. In it, Woodley’s character, Tris, has to face her more sadistic side, Dark Tris. Woodley explains the idea of Dark Tris being Tris’ toughest opponent, how in reality we’re often the toughest opponent for ourselves.
“I think that we’re always sort of our toughest opponents, right?” she said. “Because we know the deepest, darkest secrets of our souls and we also know the greatest light of our beings. So when your cluttered self, your dark self, your angered, pessimistic, cynical self comes to surface itself in a physical manifestation, I would think that would be quite terrifying.”
She also explains the technical aspects of filming that scene, stating it as being “math and logistics and just everything involved was tricky.”
The Divergent Series: Insurgent raises the stakes for Tris as she searches for allies and answers in the ruins of a futuristic Chicago. Tris (Woodley) and Four (James) are now fugitives on the run, hunted by Jeanine (Winslet), the leader of the power-hungry Erudite elite. Raching against time, they msut find out what Tris’s family sacrificed their lives to protect, and why the Erudite leaders will do anything to stop them. Haunted by her past choices but desperate to protect the ones she loves, Tris, with Four at her side, faces one impossible challenge after another as they unlock the truth about the past and ultimately the future of their world.
