Saoirse has landed a spot on Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list in the Hollywood & Entertainment category, following her turn in ‘Brooklyn’. The annual list highlights “young entrepreneurs, breakout talents, and change agents in 20 different sectors”. Here is Forbes’ write-up:
Saoirse Ronan, 21
Saoirse Ronan, known for her roles in “Atonement” and “The Lovely Bones” has set critics fluttering with ‘Brooklyn’, which many will expect will earn her a second Oscar nomination. The Irish-born Ronan makes her Broadway debut as Abigail Williams in “The Crucible” in 2016.
Saoirse talked to Brantley Bardin from Palm Springs Life about her journey through Brooklyn, receiving the International Star Award at Palm Springs International Film Festival and more, read it below:
With a face that seems to come from another era, one so expressive that it could have served her well as a great silent film star, Irish actress Saoirse Ronan creates characters and produces performances that writers describe as “ethereal” and “otherworldly.”
Offscreen, however, Ronan is disarmingly unpretentious and a creature very much of her time. She professes to love basketball, swimming, and surfing. Three of her favorite movies of the last year include the über-popular titles, Trainwreck, Spy, and Inside Out. Best of all, she’s charmingly prone to reflexive self-deprecation: When conversation turns to a quick discussion of her rhapsodic pale, blue eyes, she says with a wry lilt, “Ah, yes, my eyes. My selling point. I’m, actually, a terrible actress, but the blue eyes, for some reason, seem to keep me going!”
In many ways, it seems, the Emerald Isle actress (whose first name is pronounced SEAR-sha) is a normal, funny, and endearing young woman of 21. Her prodigious work, however, is as far from normal as Ireland is from the Ivory Coast. With its heady mixture of art house and major studio work, her filmography is one most actresses twice her age can only dream about.
