There were many cuts made to the movie version of Divergent, but the absence of Uriah was a particular disappointment to author Veronica Roth (and to the character’s many, very vocal fans). So, good news: After her BookCon panel with Alex London on Saturday, Roth confirmed that Uriah will definitely be in Insurgent. “They haven't cast it yet, because he doesn't need to start shooting for a little while,” Roth told us. As for her Uriah casting hopes: “I try not to think like that, because if they don't cast someone who doesn't fit my very specific mental image, there's no point in being upset about that — to a certain extent. If they cast a white boy, I would be kind of upset about that. I just try to make sure that I'm clear that it's very important.” As for the two-part Allegiant, Roth doesn’t know how the movies will divide the book, but she does have a suggestion: “Where would I split it? Probably after they leave the city. Because there's a lot going on in that early part, and then they leave the city and figure out what's out there, and I think that makes sense.”
