Saoirse at EE British Academy Film Awards

A few hours ago, Saoirse attended the EE British Academy Film Awards, where she was nominated as Best Actress for her work in Lady Bird. She was looking stunning in a black Chanel pre-fall 2018 dress which had a 1920s style panel of fringing.

Saoirse talks to the Irish Times

Saoirse talks to the Irish Times

It was published today by the Irish Times a new interview with Saoirse in which she talks about fame, Hollywood scandals, the abortion referendum and more. Read it below:

You wouldn’t guess that Saoirse Ronan carried the expectations of a nation on her narrow shoulders. The art of being Saoirse is, perhaps, the art of not seeming disconcerted. Her acting conceals effort. She appears to drift through performances on waves of unpretentious sincerity. Without kicking up scandal, causing kerfuffle or exposing any aggressive elbows, she has secured three Oscar nominations before the age of 24. (Jennifer Lawrence is the only other person to have managed that feat.)

Her turn in Atonement scored a best supporting nod in 2008. Two years ago, during the annus mirabilis of Irish cinema, she was nominated in the best actress race for Brooklyn. Now, up in the same category for playing a difficult teenager in Greta Gerwig’s wonderful Lady Bird, she has her best shot yet at the title.

When I meet her, I’ve just come from fellow nominee Daniel Kaluuya at another press bash. He said to say hello.

“Ach, I love him,” she burbles. “I said it to him the other day: ‘You don’t seem fazed by it at all.’”

AnOther Magazine: The Prodigious Talent Set for Stardom Since Childhood

February has been a great month for Saoirse fans so far, and to add to the list of good moments we have a new photoshoot and interview to AnOther Magazine! Check out the pictures in our gallery and read the article below:

When she stepped out in front of an audience of millions on Saturday Night Live last December, Saoirse Ronan began by setting the record straight on her endlessly mispronounced first name, with a musical ditty that explained “Saoirse” rhymes with “inertia”. With its Gaelic jumble of vowels, it’s been butchered in multiple ways by talk-show hosts and spellchecks across the globe. The Irish 23-year-old’s impish stint as ringleader on the legendary comedy show previously hosted by the likes of Scarlett Johansson and Kristen Stewart was something of a clue to her currently soaring trajectory in Hollywood, but it was also the moment the gifted actress was finally allowed to be funny. With her ethereal looks, obsessive dedication and litmus-paper sensitivity on screen, most directors seem to have taken Ronan’s abilities too seriously to send comedies, or even just regular, messy teenage girls, her way. Carried onto a film set before she could walk, the actress christened “Meryl reborn” by Ryan Gosling has a habit of acting veterans twice her age off the screen, playing a kaleidoscopic range of strong, unpredictable characters and complicated misfits. There was the feral teen assassin raised in a frozen wilderness in Joe Wright’s Hanna; a southern gothic drifter in Ryan Gosling’s neon-drenched noir fairytale Lost River; a 200-year-old vampire in Neil Jordan’s Byzantium; a deeply homesick Irish immigrant in John Crowley’s Brooklyn; and the solemn upper-class English girl with impeccable clipped vowels whose single wicked lie precipitates tragedy in Atonement, a role that won her her first Oscar nomination aged just 13.
