Saoirse talks to IO Donna

Saoirse is featured on IO Donna, a renowed Italian magazine. Unfortunately for me, my italian is pretty tragic, but I did make an attempt at translating the article, and you can read it below. I apologize for any mistakes and would very much welcome corrections.

Our gallery has also been updated with the photoshoot featured on the article.

It is almost impossible for the actors to inspire tenderness outside a film set. The better they are, the greater the mistrust. But in the presence of Saoirse Ronan who, with genuine triumphalism, reveals: “Yesterday I got my license!” Not even the experienced reporter can prevent solidarity. And the feeling is that the 25 year old Irishwoman who received her first Oscar nomination when she was 13 (for Atonement, which was followed by two others) had a great desire to tell the world she grew up.

The condition of a child prodigy (and she is a prodigious child too), even if perhaps it is no longer as dangerous as it used to be, it is certainly uncomfortable. There is always someone ready to remind you of the stories that ended badly, the talents that disappeared, those in conflict with their parents, those unable to make the transition. Macaulay Culkin will forever be the child from “Home Alone”, while Jodie Foster still represents, at 56, the happy outcome. Saoirse, beyond the exoticism of the name (meaning “freedom”, which was very popular in the 1920s and was pronounced “Serscia”), is keen to let people know that she lives a fairly normal life. She works in Europe and America and rests in the Irish countryside, which she never misses an opportunity to exalt for its beauty and thaumaturgical properties on the body and the spirit.

Saoirse was on RTÉ One’s The Late Late Show yesterday! They played an adorable audio of 10 year-old Saoirse calling the radio and imitating The Gingerbread Man from Shrek for a contest, and she talked about her experience with the Me Too movement and being constantly protected by her parents.

She was also photographed outside the studio, and our gallery has been updated with the candids.

Saoirse Ronan in Mary Queen of Scots and On Chesil Beach

“This is the first time I’ve played any queen or monarch. Mary had to hold herself in a certain way when she was presenting herself at court, but when she was on her own, in her intimate quarters, she was quite different. I began to feel like a bit of a boss. A boss queen!”

Did you learn any royal skills?
Yes, I learned to ride. My horse in the film was also Wonder Woman’s horse—his name is Prince, and he is the biggest diva I’ve ever met. Prince doesn’t do anything for anyone, especially me, and had a nervous cough that you’d hear right before we’d do a take. Everything I did was for that horse, just to get his approval.
