In a recent interview with The Guardian, Saoirse has revealed some things about Eleanor, her character in the upcoming film “Byzantium”. Read the article below:

The big question concerning Saoirse Ronan – apart from how on earth one pronounces her first name (try rhyming it with “inertia”) – has been when exactly she might cross the threshold into adult roles, and how. The Irish actor has only just turned 19, so it’s hardly surprising she has spent her career playing children, though that rather under-represents the challenging nature of her parts to date.

Unusually for a young actor, she has achieved fame and acclaim without first passing through the brightly lit high-school corridors of the teen-movie genre. She was Oscar-nominated at the age of 13 for her otherworldly performance as Briony Tallis, the spiteful catalyst for catastrophe in Atonement; she was the murdered girl monitoring the hunt for her own killer in supernatural drama The Lovely Bones; she played a ruthless assassin in Hanna; and in The Host, a teenage science-fiction thriller from the pen of Twilight creator Stephenie Meyer, Ronan was called upon to give a double performance: as both a blank-faced victim of extra-terrestrial possession, and the indefatigable soul still trapped inside.

Given that she has technically never portrayed an adult on screen, Ronan is growing up in one colossal leap in her new film, Byzantium, an atmospheric chiller about a mother-daughter vampire team. Playing Eleanor the 200-year-old bloodsucker does dramatically raisethe average age of the roles on Ronan’s CV, although she insists the secret was to approach her as the 16-year-old she appears to be on the outside. “I didn’t really feel like I was playing an adult,” she says in her gentle Irish lilt when we meet in a London hotel. She’s wearing an emerald-green cardigan, and her fingernails are painted vivid electric-blue. Tissues and medication are spread out on the coffee table to help combat her cold. “Eleanor has been a teenager for 200 years,” she points out. “But that’s still what she is – a teenager. She’s a very old soul. “

Saoirsehas said that Ryan Gosling will be a “great” director because he is in tune with his work. The actress is set to play one of the leading roles in the upcoming film “How To Catch a Monster”, which Gosling will be directing.

The Irish actress stars in his directorial debut – the fantasy noir How To Catch A Monster – alongside Christina Hendricks, Eva Mendes and Matt Smith, which has started filming in Detroit, Michigan.

“I know he’s going to be a great director because I’ve talked to him and I know his ideas. He wrote the script, which is fantastic, and with each draft you can see it’s really come on and you can see where he wants the story to go.”

Saoirse, who is also continuing her successful streak with a leading role in Wes Anderson’s upcoming film The Grand Budapest Hotel, is already a big fan of Ryan’s work and the choices he has made in his career. “I think you can tell by the choices he makes as an actor that he very much respects the story in the film and strong characters. He could have easily picked a bunch of blockbusters films over Blue Valentine and Drive but he didn’t and because he’s so great and was working with great people he made really great films and I think that’s something that’s important to him.”

Saoirse has recently given a very sweet interview to the website Irish Examiner. She talked about the film “Byzantium” and her career. You can read it below:

Earlier this year she starred in The Host, based on the novel by Twilight author Stephenie Meyer, and she found herself marooned for a while in New Mexico.  “It was the end of the whole shoot and I was a bit tired and mam had gone back,” she recalls. “She had to go because of her visa and I was a bit sad that she’d gone — I’d wake up in the morning and mam wasn’t there doing breakfast and lovely things like that. But the crew just make me some tea and it completely relaxed me so I love having tea when I go home.”

At 19 years old and with a string of high-profile films to her name, including the likes of Atonement, The Lovely Bones and Hanna, Ronan is currently brewing a strong career. Her most recent outing sees her team up with acclaimed Irish filmmaker Neil Jordan for Byzantium, a modern-day gothic thriller replete with blood, death and sultry vampires. Ronan stars alongside English rose Gemma Arterton, the pair playing mother and daughter, both immortal and carrying their fate as both blessing and curse.

“I hadn’t really seen that much horror before and to be honest I didn’t really know that it was going to turn into a horror,” Ronan says of the film. “I am really glad it did though because it is quite cool. But what really attracted me to the story was the fact that it was technically a vampire story but told in a completely different way.”

Joss Whedon has recently been discussing the fact that Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch will be appearing in The Avengers 2, with rumours circulating that Saoirse is the frontrunner to play the latter.

The Hanna star addressed those rumours this week, stating that she’d jump at the chance to play the comic book character.

“I have heard about it and yes, I would” she told The Mary Sue. “Of course I would. I love Joss and I love those films, and I love his handle on them and how he portrayed these kinds of superheroes.

“I think it’s very different from what anyone else has done. So yeah, I’d love to be in it.”
