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.

We’re starting February in the best possible way with a brand new Saoirse photoshoot, this time for The Sunday Times Style! Our gallery has been updated with six high quality images that were released with the interview -featuring her Lady Bird director Greta Gerwig- and you can read it below.

I hear the giggling before I get to the door of the suite in the Soho hotel in London, where I’m meeting Greta Gerwig, 34, and Saoirse Ronan, 23 — both “women of the moment” thanks to Gerwig’s much-hyped debut solo directorial film, Lady Bird. It’s a damp, cold Saturday evening and the pair haven’t seen each other since filming wrapped on the movie several months earlier. Right now, they’re sitting face to face, intertwined, on the sofa and holding hands. Legs tucked beneath them, they talk intensely and at a hundred miles an hour, Gerwig in her languid Californian drawl and Ronan in a — surprisingly broad — Irish brogue. It takes a good five minutes for them to stop reminiscing about their time on set and gossiping about recent projects and who has seen who since the movie wrapped and even notice I’m in the room.

Great news! It was announced just yesterday by Playbill that “The Seagull” will be released in May, but with no exact date yet. Read their report below:

The screen adaptation of Chekhov’s The Seagull, directed by Tony winner Michael Mayer, will be released by Sony Pictures Classics on a date to be announced in May. The film stars Annette Bening, Saoirse Ronan, Elisabeth Moss, and Corey Stoll.

The movie, which was filmed in 2015 in New York, features a script by Stephen Karam, who won a Tony for his play The Humans. The playwright also adapted another Chekhov play, The Cherry Orchard, which played Broadway in 2016.

Ronan and Bening take on the central roles of aspiring actor Nina and the fading Arkadina, with Tony nominee and Emmy winner Moss as Masha, Stoll as Trigorin, Mare Winningham as Polina, and Brian Dennehy as Sorin as well as Jon Tenney, Michael Zegen, Glenn Fleshler, and Billy Howle.

The film, which is produced by Jay Franke, David Herro, Robert Salerno, Tom Hulce, and Leslie Urdang, features costumes by Oscar winner Ann Roth.
