She’s the one to watch this year. The name Lauryn Canny might not be familiar to most people just yet, but, trust us, in a couple of months’ time you’ll know who this 15-year-old is.

“Meryl Streep is my ultimate inspiration,” says Lauryn. “I’m obsessed with Jennifer Lawrence as well — I just love her. Closer to home, Saoirse Ronan is brilliant. I’d love to work with her some time.

During an interview for CraveOnline, Kevin McDonald – who directed the film “How I Live Now” – talked about Saoirse. Read the article below.

CraveOnline: Saoirse told us you did not want to cast her at first.

Kevin Macdonald: [Laughs] Well, that’s not quite true. It’s not that I didn’t want to cast her. It’s just that I didn’t think of her for the role I suppose because I wanted an American and I wanted somebody who was unknown. I had it in my head that it should all be a cast of unknowns. I looked for a long time here in the States, had a great casting director, and we looked and looked and couldn’t find anybody.

Then the casting director in the U.K. said, “What about Saoirse?” And I said, “Well, she’s great. She’s a great actress but she’s Irish and she’s a bit older than the character who was meant to be maybe 16.” She said, “Well, you should just meet her.” And of course she walked in and I looked at her and was like, “All right, you’re so fantastic.” Then she read a scene and we were all in tears. Instantly I thought, what an idiot I am. Why didn’t I think of her to begin with? We would’ve saved a lot of time and pain.

Is How I Live Now your first love story?

I guess it is. I’ve done things which have a love story element in them, a romantic element in them of one sort or another. State of Play is a romantic story at it’s heart. Last King of Scotland even has a love story in it but this is the first one which I can say is a love story. That’s what it is. It is a love story. It’s about a girl who can’t love, can’t be loved, doesn’t feel she’s loved who learns to be loved and learns to give love and is transformed through the course of this tale. I was attracted to that. I wanted to make a love story. I wanted to make a story which, although it’s quite dystopian and dark and disturbing in some ways, is at its heart positive, a very positive human message.

Laura Harold, 33, from Dinas Powys, Vale of Glamorgan, stood in for Saoirse in the film “How I Live Now”, released last month. She told WalesOnline she was put through her paces during a physically-demanging shoot and appeared naked in scenes depicting a dream sequence.

She told WalesOnline “The role came about by chance. I had a friend who couldn’t do it and I got asked to send some photos in to an agent who was helping cast How I Live Now and I matched up almost. Obviously we are very far apart in age – I’m 33 and she’s 18 or 19 but when it came t measurements, we were fine.”

Laura said filming took place between May and July last year in Carmarthenshire. And she said the experience was very different to her normal on-set routine. “The next Monday I had a chauffeur show up on my door,” she said. “It was strange with where I was in life – on set and making the set – to being on it and being pampered and someone holding an umbrella and a coat.”

But Laura added it wasn’t all glamour – with frequent late-night shooting and physically-testing scenes. She said: “I really had to get my running shoes on. Most of it was running through brambles and running up a hill. It was a lot of sweaty work because Saoirse could only do a few takes as they were filming in two locations at once. You get scratched up and bruised up and there were times when I was working so hard I felt physically sick and that was quite hard work on my body. You are out there for so many hours and have to get it done in daylight.”

Meanwhile in scenes where she had to strip off, Laura took a pragmatic approach. “I don’t really mind my body,” she said. “We have all got faults.” Laura also met Saoirse and her parents on set and described the young star as “a good laugh”. “She was very down to earth and her parents were down to earth,” Laura said. “She was a good laugh, paying cards and messing around with the other kids on set.”
