5. Roth considered writing parts of Allegiant from Caleb’s and Natalie’s point of view.

At the 2013 National Book Festival, you stated that you almost wrote the book from Caleb’s and someone else’s perspective. Can you tell us who that person was?

VR: I tried out Caleb, I tried out Tobias (obviously that one worked), and I tried out journal entries retrospective from Natalie’s point of view to intersperse with the forward narrative. That couldn’t sustain over the entire book, and it didn’t address the story from the angles that I wanted to address it from, so I had to get rid of that one too.

Was it weird writing from Tobias’ point of view or did you love switching voices?

VR: I thought it was fun because Tris’ voice is very stereotypically masculine, very straightforward, very direct, kind of repetitive. Tobias’ is a little more poetic, a little more descriptive, and he generally shares more. Tris is always withholding, but Tobias shares everything, so it was interesting to see those dynamics and how they turned over my expectations of those people. It was fun, but it was hard.

First Look at Kate Winslet as Jeanine Matthews in DIVERGENT

USA Today has released the first photo of Kate Winslet as Erudite leader Jeanine Matthews!

Here’s an excerpt from the story where Winslet talks a bit about her character:

That’s just what Winslet does in the pivotal role of Jeanine Matthews in the film adaptation (out March 21) of the first novel in Veronica Roth’s best-selling Divergent trilogy.

Jeanine is the architect of a futuristic dystopian society based in Chicago, in which the population is divided into five factions. As the leader of the Erudite, or intelligent group, Jeanine is also the story’s antagonist.

Winslet’s character adopts a positively chilly demeanor when she meets hero Tris Prior (The Descendants‘ Shailene Woodley) and her family in a scene depicting the day Tris will choose her faction.

“That’s the whole point of Jeanine,” Winslet says. “She walks down the corridor and sort of just leaves this vapor trail. I knew I had to bring that intimidation.”

The role gives the Oscar winner (best actress for 2008’s The Reader) the opportunity to play her first screen villain.

“I’m no idiot. The idea went through my head that I have never played a baddie before,” she says. “I was almost kind of surprised.”

I have to say, she does look intimidating!  Let us know what you think about this first look at Jeanine Matthews and visit USA Today to read the complete story.
