Keiynan Lonsdale scores role in a major Hollywood blockbuster Insurgent!
Keiynan Lonsdale (or Keiks as we like to call him) is about to conquer Hollywood in his latest and greatest gig: Uriah in Divergent’s sequel, Insurgent.
Our former VJ flew the nest to pursue his love of music and acting in the great USA which has paid off in a way he couldn’t ever imagine- we still consider him apart of the MTV team though!
“I was just happy enough to get a call back with the director on Skype after my first audition,” Keiks told Confidential.
“When they told me I got it I freaked out, I didn’t believe it. Ever since I have been waiting for a phone call to say it was a mistake.”
The multi-talented 22-year-old is currently flying business class (for the first time) to Atlanta to start filming with the likes of Naomi Watts, Kate Winslet, Zoe Kravitz and Shailene Woodley.
Of the character he’ll be playing, Keiynan revealed he’s “pretty crucial to the story” and he could not be happier.
The MTV Australia family wishes Keiynan the best of luck and we look forward to seeing him do even bigger and more amazing things.
We could not be more proud!
Insurgent is set for release next March.
