News of the latest film casting for Insurgent came straight from the official Divergent twitter account on Monday, which announced that Parenthood‘s Rosa Salazar would portray the role of Lynn in the upcoming film.

Fans of author Veronica Roth’s series may remember that Lynn is a Dauntless-born initiate, who, like Tris, makes it through the initiation. In the book, Lynn is described as having a shaved head; later when her hair starts to grow back, Tris muses that she suddenly realizes how pretty Lynn is, calling her “striking without trying to be.”

The Dauntless-born girl is also described as having golden-brown eyes with a piercing on one eyebrow, full lips, and a delicate nose. Though she is friends with Uriah and Marlene, Tris and Lynn get off on the wrong foot during initiation, but then go on to get better acquainted during the events of Insurgent.

Insurgent is set to hit theaters on March 20, 2015.
