In 2009, he accompanied his girlfriend Ruth Kearny to audition for a role in “A Passionate Woman”, a television series based on the 1992 play written by the screenwriter Kay Mellor. Initially, Theo was not looking for any role, just auditioned for fun, however, he was selected to star in the series in 2010. The same year, he appeared as a guest in the television series “Downton Abbey” playing Kemal Pamuk, a Turkish diplomat. He then appeared in the movie “You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger”, and in 2011 starred in the first season of the supernatural drama television series “Bedlam”. After the culmination of that season, Theo appeared in film “The Inbetweeners Movie” as James, which received mixed reviews, but still became a blockbuster, raising almost $90 million at the box office, also adding to his net worth.
At the beginning of 2012, he gave life to the character of David in “Underworld: Awakening”, and despite receiving negative reviews, the film grossed $170 million dollars worldwide, almost three times its initial budget of $60 million. Subsequently, he made a guest appearance in the film “The Domino Effect”, and appeared in two episodes of the series “Case Sensitive and “Room at the Top”, playing the roles of Aidan Harper and Jack Wales respectively. In 2013, Theo starred in the series “Golden Boy” aired on CBS – in its first episode, the series earned $10.56 million, and throughout the season, the number of viewers varied between seven and 10 million. In 2014, Theo was chosen for the starring role of Tobias “Four” Eaton in the film “Divergent”, a film adaptation of the novel of the same name written by Veronica Roth, which had mixed reviews, but the film still became a blockbuster, raising $288 million, more than three times its initial budget of $85 million. His performance earned him a prize at that year’s Teen Choice Awards for the Best Action Movie Actor. In addition to this, at the People’s Choice Awards the actor won the award for the Best Film Duo together with Shailene Woodley. Thanks to the success of the film, Summit Entertainment confirmed a sequel called “The Divergent Series: Insurgent” that was released in 2015, and Theo reprised this role in 2016 in the sequel “Divergent 3: Beyond the Wall”, and in 2017 in the last part of the Divergent 4 saga “The Divergent Series: Ascendant”.
