In a recent interview with Vulture, the 19-year-old actor chatted about going from playing Shailene‘s brother in Divergent to her love interest in Fault In Our Stars.
“I think that’s the magic of being an actor. You can do that and it’s not weird — people play different roles all the time, you know?” he shared.
Ansel added, “?I feel like Shailene is the best actress I’ve ever met, who was good enough to read with, and I feel like I’m a pretty good actor, too, so I think it’s going to be no problem for us. It’ll be great.?”
Ansel is also pictured at the premiere of After Earth held at Ziegfeld Theatre in New York City late last month.
