At age 19, Ansel Elgort has only a few films under his belt, but that won't last long because of his work as Caleb Prior in Divergent and Augustus Waters in the film adaptation of John Green's young-adult best-seller The Fault in Our Stars.
The roles weren't accidents. The son of a fashion photographer and opera director, Ansel (named for Ansel Adams) took ballet and singing lessons, performed in musical theater, and attended Stagedoor Manor drama camp for seven years.
"You take one step at a time and then eventually you get to star in a big movie....That's why I am starting to believe in luck." It's all coming together for this rising star!
