Saoirse talked about her upcoming role as Mary in the film “Mary Queen of Scots” to STV last month, while promoting the well received Neil Jordan vampire film Byzantium at the Glasgow Film Festival.
“I’m hopefully going to be playing Mary Queen of Scots in the second half of the year, and I’m really looking forward to it, just coming back to Scotland. Scottish history is fascinating, and it’s very similar to Irish history. When I read the script, and I started reading up a little bit about Mary, I found it really touched a nerve, because it’s very similar to what we went through as well. So I really hope it works out, I’d love to play her.”
