Maggie Q. (Tori) and Mekhi Phifer (Max) go in-depth about Divergent with The Boston Herald. We will skip all „The Hunger Games’ comparisons (be prepared for several of those from the mainstream media) and get onto the good stuff in the interview.
Maggie on what she loves about Divergent:
“What I like about this film is Tris’ journey,” said Maggie. “As a 16-year-old you would be trying to find your way and that’s exactly what she’s doing in this film. She’s afraid, and she’s brave. She’s up, she’s down, she’s tireless, she’s making mistakes. She believes in things and is being betrayed, and isn’t that the journey of a young person?”
