Wall Street Journal has published a new feature with Saoirse, in advance of the Oscars this Sunday and “The Crucible” previews next week. Read it below:

There’s a lot of giggling onstage at the Walter Kerr Theatre. Five young “witches” in pleated skirts and knee-high socks are stumbling across the set, practicing precise contortions for their big possession scene. Between runs, the lead witch leans her head cheerfully on another’s shoulder. “I’m so tired,” she says.

Saoirse Ronan
, up for the best actress Oscar for her role in “Brooklyn,” is working toward her Broadway debut, in a new production of “The Crucible.” The Bronx-born, Irish-raised film star will play Abigail Williams, the slightly sympathetic villain in Arthur Miller’s Salem witch-hunt drama, opening March 31 with previews starting March 1.

The timing could be better. While in rehearsals, Ms. Ronan has spent weekends jetting around to awards events. On the first Friday of rehearsals she flew from New York to Los Angeles, attended the Screen Actors Guild Awards on Saturday, took a red-eye back for a Sunday photo shoot and returned to rehearsals Monday. Aside from the SAG Awards, she was also nominated for a Golden Globe, British Academy Film Award and Critics’ Choice Award (losing to Brie Larson at each), and has won a number of smaller awards.

When she emerges almost without warning from a snowbound wood as the semi-feral warrior namesake of 2011’s Hanna, Saoirse Ronan completely overwhelmed the world and her antagonists (including an evil spy played by Cate Blanchett) with an easy balance of almost preternatural talent and rigorously drilled skills. Same for the actress who, a few years earlier, at the ripe old age of 12, was cast in her major film debut in director Joe Wright’s sweeping 2007 adaptation of the Ian McEwan novel Atonement—and picked up an Oscar nomination for her troubles. In the nearly nine years since her first film, all Ronan has done is work with Peter Weir (The Way Back, 2010), with Peter Jackson, on the 2009 adaptation of Alice Sebold’s monumental best-seller The Lovely Bones, with Neil Jordan (Byzantium, 2012), and with Wes Anderson, playing the doomed baker-outlaw-romantic Agatha in 2014’s The Grand Budapest Hotel.

In 2015, the New York-born, Ireland-raised Ronan drew on her dual roots to play an Irish immigrant in New York in the 1950s, in the lauded romantic drama Brooklyn, and secured her second nomination from the Academy. This February, as she wound down campaign season and geared up for her part in the Broadway production of Arthur Miller’s The Crucible, Ronan, now 21, talked to an actress and director who knows from the Oscars-two-time-winner Jodie Foster.

(Continued from Jodie Foster)

JODIE FOSTER: Do you live with your parents at home?

SAOIRSE RONAN: I moved away to London when I was 19, actually about six months before we made Brooklyn. So by the time we made the film, I was still incredibly homesick. I don’t know if you found it this way when you were young, but to move away is very different from just working away from home. It was something that I needed and I wanted to do. I wanted to leave Ireland and have anonymity while I was young so I could be stupid and relaxed, I suppose. So I lived on my own and got used to paying bills every month and washing dishes and not leaving them in the sink for five days. New York was always the end goal for me. It was always inevitable that I’d move here because I’d had such a strong connection with it from a very young age. I guess because I know I have roots here, and the energy is really palpable. As soon as you land, you feel like invigorated or something. I feel like it’s a good place to be when you’re young.
