Saoirse is the covergirl of New York Magazine’s Spring Fashion issue. We have uploaded the featured photoshoot to our gallery, and you can read the article below.
Eight years ago, Saoirse Ronan made her first impression on U.S. audiences in Atonement as Briony, the confused, vengeful girl whose lie sets the plot in motion. That watchful, unsettling performance won her an Oscar nomination at age 13. Since then, she has made a couple of film appearances per year at most (a child assassin holding her own against Cate Blanchett in Hanna; a clever baker in The Grand Budapest Hotel), staying more or less above the Hollywood fray (thanks in large part to the grounding influence of her parents — her father, Paul, is a working actor). That may prove tougher now: At 21, she’s again an Oscar nominee, this time as a leading actress, for her performance as Irish immigrant Eilis in Brooklyn. Ronan’s own immigration experience was the opposite of Eilis’s: She was born in the Bronx and lived there until she was 3, then moved back to Ireland. But now she’s returned to the city that has such a hold on her imagination to make her Broadway debut in The Crucible as Abigail Williams — a confused, vengeful girl not unlike her first big role. We talked to her about going onstage for the first time and discussing child stardom with Jodie Foster. Her name, by the way, is pronounced Sir-sha.
