Naomi Watts Cast As Evelyn Eaton In INSURGENT and ALLEGIANT Films

According to Variety, actress Naomi Watts is in final negotiations to play Evelyn Eaton in INSURGENT and the two ALLEGIANT films. This comes as a bit of a shock given that Evelyn is described as a person of color in the novels, hence the mixed race heritage of her estranged son, Four.


Though not featured in DIVERGENT, Evelyn plays a twisted, complex role in the INSURGENT and ALLEGIANT plot lines as a leader among the oppressed Factionless. It will be interesting to see how her character plays out alongside the established cast, especially Theo James (Four) and Ray Stevenson (Marcus).
