Keiynan Lonsdale Cast as Uriah in Upcoming Insurgent Movie

By  | 

Fans asked, Summit Entertainment listened. Uriah is finally coming to the big screen for the Divergent sequel, Insurgent! It was just announced that Australian actor Keiynan Lonsdale will take on the role of Uriah Pedrad, the former Dauntless member who befriends Tris and turns out to also be Divergent. Keiynan joins other recently announced actors Suki WaterhouseNaomi WattsDaniel Dae Kim and Octavia Spencer for one of the most highly anticipated sequels of all time!

Uriah’s character was noticeably missing from the first movie, which was strange because he played a pretty large role in the book. And, as expected, die-hard fans are beyond excited that this addition will make the Insurgent movie extremely true to the book.

Also announced to join the Insurgent cast is Parenthood’s Rosa Salazar who will play Lynn, the Dauntless initiate with a shaved head and an eyebrow piercing that fascinated Tris.
