theo4LA Times sat down with Theo James and talked about the oppurtunities working in a franchise like ‘Divergent’ has offered, his relationship with Shailene Woodley, and his privacy.

From LA Times:

After the film’s release last year, James, too, said he instantly noticed an impact on the range of roles he was offered.
“Scripts and opportunities changed and increased, but that’s a double-edged sword,” he said. “It’s easy to be wooed by what comes easy and the glamorous ones, those kinds of projects, whereas I was pretty sure I wanted to, at least for three or four years, be very specific with what I do and do smaller stuff.”

We are excited for Theo’s new projects! He’s going to star opposite Amber Heard and Johnny Depp in ‘London Fields’. Then with Dakota Fanning in ‘Franny’, and then his most recent role as a priest in ‘The Secret Scripture’. Plus he still has two more ‘Allegiant’ films, and we have no doubt we’ll be seeing a lot of Mr. James in our future.

Theo explains the importance of his relatioonship with Shai:

“Sometimes the nature of a big movie, the nature of the material, the scene doesn’t have the richness that you’d want it to,” James said. “We always personally worked together to make it make sense and make it as real as possible in that hyper real world. We talked about how there would be fractiousness and distance between [Tris and Four].”

We love the on screen chemistry between FourTris and couldn’t picture a better cast for our favorite ship!

Sadly, even though we all want it, it doesn’t seem Theo James will ever have a Twitter:

“I find sharing intimate details with people that you don’t know an interesting concept,” he said. “I like to keep some things to myself.”
That’s one reason, he says, he studiously avoids social media — though there are others as well.

“My type of personality, I’d probably get into trouble because I’d say something inappropriate,” James said.
