Shailene Woodley has officially landed the role of Hazel Grace Lancaster in the upcoming film The Fault in Our Stars!
“I am absolutely thrilled that Shailene will be playing Hazel in The Fault in Our Stars,” the novel’s author John Green told Entertainment Weekly. “It means a lot to me that she is a fan of the book, and I know from our conversations that she has a profound understanding of Hazel. Watching her audition, I felt like Hazel Grace Lancaster was talking to me. It was eerie–and very exciting.”
“Over 250 girls read for the part, but it wasn’t until Shailene stepped in front of the camera that I truly saw Hazel for the first time. It was like lightning striking. I can’t wait for the rest of the world to see what I have,” director Josh Boone added.
Shailene is currently filming her role as Mary Jane Watson in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and she will soon get to work as the heroine Beatrice Prior in Divergent. Such an exciting time for her!!
