Star-on-the-rise Keiynan Lonsdale has a lot to celebrate.
The 23-year-old Australian actor is making his debut on the big screen with his biggest project to date, as fan-favorite character Uriah in Insurgent, the highly-anticipated sequel in The Divergent Series. Lonsdale stopped by ETonline to talk about the role, and what lies ahead.
“I'm nervous and excited because I've never seen my face that large on a screen before,” said Lonsdale. “This is definitely the biggest thing I've ever done, so it was just kind of trying to wrap my head around working with so many great people -- but in another sense, it was just so exciting because I was kind of this small fish in this big pond.”
By “big pond” he means working with some of the biggest names in Hollywood like Naomi Watts, Kate Winslet, Miles Teller, and Shailene Woodley – who might just be the most loveable actress in Hollywood.
“She makes a really conscious effort to be a good person which I think is really awesome,” Lonsdale said of Shailene. “She's a hugger like everyone says, but that's for real -- and she's just a really cool girl”
Lonsdale is also set to appear opposite Chris Pine, Eric Bana, Ben Foster, and Casey Affleck in The Finest Hours in spring 2016 -- a film based on a true story that follows crew members of the Coast Guard as they make a daring rescue attempt off the coast of Cape Cod after a pair of oil tankers are destroyed during a blizzard in 1952.
In addition to acting, Lonsdale has a long history of singing and dancing – we find out his go-to dance moves and his celebrity crush in the video above.
You can see Keiynan as Uriah when Insurgent hits theaters March 20.
