Attention, Initiates! It’s time to meet your Uriah.
Lionsgate announced this afternoon via Twitter that Keiynan Lonsdale, an Australian actor best known for his work in the Aussie TV series “Dance Academy,” will join the cast of “Insurgent,” now shooting in Atlanta, as Uriah.
The 22-year-old will play a major role in the sequel to “Divergent,” a fellow Dauntless member who works alongside Four (Theo James) and Tris (Shailene Woodley) after the faction system begins to crumble.
Lonsdale is active on both Twitter and Instagram, but as of publication hadn’t yet made a comment on his casting announcement. So, hilariously, fans have been leaving their opinions about him on his most recent Instagram, an artful rendering of his new Timberland boots.
In another interesting tidbit, the film series also appears to have gotten an umbrella franchise name: “The Divergent Series.” Much like “Twilight” became “The Twilight Saga” from its sequel onward, it looks as if we’ll be lining up to see “The Divergent Series: Insurgent” on March 20, 2015.
