Early on Monday, all of the UW heard that Shailene Woodley, star of Divergent, The Fault in Our Stars, The Descendents, and “The Secret Life of the American Teenager,” was on campus canvassing for Senator Bernie Sanders. OnWiscTeam reporters Lulu, Sam, and Emily embarked on a high-stakes quest to find her for an interview. They ran up and down state street, rode creepy elevators, and regretted not bicycling, but that didn’t stop them. When all else failed they turned to more daring measures. Thanks to the almighty Twitter, we managed to get Shailene Woodley on the phone before she flew out of Wisconsin…. forever.
Ms. Woodley arrived to Madison over the weekend to lend her super star assistance to the Sanders campaign which was looking to close out their final push with a bang. Woodley, along with fellow actress Rosario Dawson, spoke to a crowd of thousands in the UW Kohl Center Sunday night. Many noted Woodley’s passion and energy when she took the podium.
