When it comes to action packed franchises, there’s only one that’s at the forefront of actress Olivia Holt’s mind and that’s the dystopian series, Divergent.

When we caught up with the I Didn’t Do It star on the red carpet for Hot Pursuit last summer, Holt didn’t skip a beat when we asked her which movie franchise she’d love to star in if given the chance.

Divergent! If we could, you know, go back in time and do that,” said the actress.

Given her experience kicking butt as Kim on the Disney Channel’s martial arts themed series, Kickin’ It, we totally could have seen her playing a Dauntless alongside Tris (Shailene Woodley) and Four (Theo James)!

Divergent may have wrapped before Holt got a chance to partake in the series, but the young actress still has time to make one of her other on-screen dreams come true. When we put Holt to the test in a series of rapid fire questions we like to call Against The Clock, the actress also revealed that she’d love to get the opportunity to work with Reese Witherspoon somewhere down the line.

Up next, fans of Olivia Holt can catch Holt starring opposite Renee Zellweger, Djimon Hounsou, Jon Voight and Greg Kinnear in Same Kind of Different as Me. The upcoming drama tells the story of an international art dealer who strikes up a friendship with an unpredictable homeless man who used to be a sharecropper.

Same Kind of Different as Me premieres in theaters on April 29, 2016.
