Divergent Johanna Octavia Spencer

Octavia Spencer has just signed on to play the character Johanna in the upcoming “Divergent” movie “Insurgent.” Johanna is the leader of the Amity faction, a faction that tries to remain peaceful and apart from the other factions inside the city.

Johanna transferred to Amity from Candor, so she understands the unrest currently taking place in the factions. The book also describes Johanna’s character as having a long scar on her face, leaving her blind in one eye and giving her a lisp when she speaks.

Johanna does her best to help Tris (Shailene Woodley) and Four (Theo James) when they have nowhere else to turn, but will Amity be able to hide the pair and their group of rebels against the city for long?

If you haven’t read the “Divergent” series you will just have to wait until “Insurgent” releases to theaters on March 20, 2015 to find out!

We loved the “Divergent” books and highly recommend that you check them out! Just make sure you have a box of tissues with you for the final chapters!
