Saoirse has recently talked to Deadline about the parallels between between the life of her character, Eilis Lacey, in ‘Brooklyn’, and her own. A new portrait was released with the article, and we have added it to our photo gallery.

Saoirse RonanHow did you get involved with this project?

I heard about it over two years ago now—I had read the book years before that when I was in my mid-teens. I really loved Colm Toibin’s writings, especially of women anyway. The script just came to me—it was Nick Hornby, so of course, you’re immediately interested. I knew this was the first Irish project that I wanted to do. It was really important for me to find the right first one, and it would have to be strong and mean something to me. A couple of weeks after that, John (Crowley) flew over to Dublin to meet me, and we chatted about it in relation to his life and moving away from home, and I was just about to move away from home, so I had no idea how much the story was going to resonate with me when I did make that trip. It’s been one of those things that, to this day, has just become more and more personal as it’s gone on.

The New York Film Critics Circle earlier today named Saoirse Ronan best actress of 2015 for her role as a young Irish immigrant in the 1950s, navigating life on her own in the borough that gives Brooklyn its title.

While digesting the news back in Dublin, Ronan took time to speak with The Hollywood Reporterabout what the award means to her. The 21-year-old emerging star revealed her strong personal connection to New York City as she also prepares to make her Broadway debut early next year in an all-star revival of Arthur Miller’s The Crucible, beginning performances Feb. 29.

Congratulations on your award today.

Ronan: Thank you so, so much. I only heard a couple of hours ago; I was in the car on the way home and I almost crashed into a bus. But yeah, it’s really an absolute honor, I have to say. I’m back in Dublin and I genuinely did almost crash into a bus. I heard actually when I was still in the building, but then I talked to my agent afterwards and we were both very, very happy. And then I almost killed both myself and my mother! It didn’t happen — yet — but that’s how excited I was.

So what does it mean to you to be named best actress by the New York Film Critics Circle?

It means everything, especially the fact that it’s the New York critics recognizing me and the film and work that I’ve done — it couldn’t mean more. This is a city that means so much to me and it’s a huge part of the film. I’ve been saying to my Mam on the way home that this is the first time apart from Irish awards that I’ve gotten a best actress prize, so it means an awful lot, it really does.

As you say, Brooklyn is as much a New York story as it is an Irish story. As a young Irish woman who is making your way internationally now, was it a very personal film for you? Read More

Members of the New York Film Critics Circle are voting on year-end superlatives this morning, and Saoirse has just been announced by Variety as their choice for Best Actress. Congratulations, Saoirse!

Best Actress: Saoirse Ronan (“Brooklyn”)
The best actress Oscar race is Ronan vs. Brie Larson by anyone’s gauge at this point, and this is some major wind in the former’s sails.
