Shailene Woodley—2012 Golden Globe nominee for her performance in The Descendants—has been cast as Hazel Grace Lancaster in the film version of John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars, a bittersweet young adult bestseller about two teenagers who meet at a cancer support group and fall in love. The 21-year-old actress’ flawless audition prompted director Josh Boone to claim, “it wasn’t until Shailene stepped in front of the camera that I truly saw Hazel for the first time.” Meanwhile, Green himself tweeted: “… Shailene’s love for the book and her understanding of Hazel blew me away.” Woodley clearly has a knack for YA fiction: she’s also landed the role of kick-ass rebel Beatrice Prior in the film adaptation of Veronica Roth’s Divergent.
