Augustus Waters - Ansel Elgort's Twitter threats after casting

Ansel Elgort received threats on Twitter after he was cast in 'The Fault in Our Stars'.

The actor plays the male lead in adaptation of John Green's novel of the same name, and fans were quick to message him online to ensure he protects the integrity of the character of Augustus Waters who falls in love with Hazel Grace Lancaster (Shailene Woodley) after they meet at a cancer support group.

Talking to collier.com, he said: ''I read the book and realised how much it meant to me. After I was cast, it was actually of over social that I got a flood of people mentioning me on Twitter and saying' If you mess up Augustus Waters I will kill you' and all this stuff. There are millions of people - look at John Green followers - who are obsessed with this story ... this book is much more important than the idea of it becoming a movie and movie stars, its about the book [to the fans].''

Woodley insists it was a huge responsibility for the cast and crew to ensure the film does justice to the moving story.

She added: ''Whoever's hands this story lands in ... their real job is to protect the integrity of the words on the page.''
