Ray Stevenson On What Draws Him to Join Divergent as Marcus

In a recent interview with Collider, Ray Stevenson, who will play Marcus (Abnegation representative) in the Divergent, talks about what draws him to join the movie.

What was the appeal of Divergent?

STEVENSON: As an actor, I relish and delight in doing things that I’m not necessarily the demographic for. This is a demographic that is touching the psyche of a certain age group, facing the real internal questions of people who are going through rites of passage into adulthood. It’s earth-shaking stuff. So, I like bringing little subtle complexities to a character. It’s all about the subtext. No one can really describe or fully know another human being, even if they get a hook on them. It’s more about instinctively knowing whether you like somebody or not. You don’t have to then go and analyze and break it all down. We’re the sum of many, many, many disparate parts that all weave and change course. Also, I got to be involved with Lionsgate and Summit, and Neil Burger is directing. I read the script and I said, “Yeah, let’s dive into this!”
