At the European Premiere of Divergent, which took place in London’s Leicester Square last week, the awe-inspiring author of the best selling trilogy – Veronica Roth – was one of many guests. We were lucky enough to catch her briefly, and hear what she had to say about the movie. She revealed that if she could re-write her series, she may have added more of Jeanine! Take a look:
Now that you’ve had a chance to see the movie, and look at how Neil envisioned your entire story, what would you have done differently with the book?
VERONICA: I think we see a lot more Kate Winslet in [the movie], which no one’s complaining about! But I think that’s a good thing for the story, because having the antagonist present through climatic moments in the book is an important thing that I kind of did, but maybe not as much as I would have now if I could go back now that I have seen it.
