Suki Waterhouse Joins 'Insurgent' & Jonny Weston Also Joins the 'Divergent' Sequel's Cast
Fans of the Divergent series will be excited to hear that two more major cast members have been announced! Suki Waterhouse and Jonny Weston have signed on to the franchise, which started with Divergent and will continue on in 2015 with Insurgent. Waterhouse, a British model for lines like Burberry, Swatch, and H&M, is perhaps best known in America as the girlfriend of Bradley Cooper. She will play "Marlene, a member of the Dauntless faction", a role that will no doubt lead her to celebrity in her own right, without the looming shadow of her A-lister boyfriend.
Weston starred in 2012's Chasing Mavericks opposite Gerard Butler and is slated to star in the upcoming Taken 3. His character is yet to be announced.
Waterhouse and Weston join the already star-studded cast, helmed by Shailene Woodley and featuring Ansel Elgort, Theo James, Miles Teller, Kate Winslet, Jai Courtney, and Zoe Kravitz. Also joining the franchise's second film is Academy Award winner Octavia Spencer, who will play Johanna.
While neither Suki Waterhouse nor Jonny Weston may be household names just yet, this announcement, and the film's forthcoming release, are sure to catapult them both into the limelight. Best of luck to the young actors, we look forward to watching their careers flourish.
