Saoirse talks to The Telegraph

British website Telegraph has posted a small article about Saoirse, read it below:

Saoirse Ronan has starred in a string of films that were adapted from novels including The Lovely Bones, Atonement and The City of Ember. However, the 19-year-old Irish actress does not take the time to read the books before filming.

“I usually don’t read the books first,” Ronan tells Mandrake. “I know that sounds really unprofessional.” Instead she prefers to rely on the script alone. “I’ve been really lucky to have strong scripts from the off,” she says. “Usually I have found that reading the books just complicates that for me.”

Ronan’s next role is in Wes Anderson’s new film The Grand Budapest Hotel which will also star Ralph Fiennes and Bill Murray.
