USA Today has published a new story today on Saoirse and her The Crucible co-star Ben Whishaw. We have added a photo from their new shoot together. Below, we also added a new video interview from USA Today.
NEW YORK — 21-year-old Irish actress Saoirse Ronan‘s screen roles have ranged from a precocious adolescent in 2007’s Atonement to a young woman torn between two homes and loves in last year’s Brooklyn — both of which earned her Oscar nominations.
What her characters tend to have in common, Ronan believes, is “they kind of stay in the background, observing, until they step in and (mess) things up.”
Abigail Williams, the 17-year-old orphan Ronan is playing in the new Broadway revival of Arthur Miller’s The Crucible that marks her professional stage debut, certainly fits the latter part of that description, and then some.

Saoirse has recently talked to USA Today about her upcoming film, ‘Brooklyn’, in which she played her first Irish character. We have updated our photo gallery with a photo session that was releasedwith the article, and you can watch her interview below.
NEW YORK — Until Brooklyn, Saoirse Ronan had never played an Irish character in a movie. But what could seem like a major casting oversight is actually no coincidence.
“There’s a phrase back at home, when something is ‘diddly idle,’ ” says Ronan, 21, with a grin. “That’s when someone tries to do this stereotypical Irish film, where everyone’s a farmer and we’ve never seen the big city.
“We’ve done that and seen that and most of the time, it feels quite flat,” she adds. “So I was waiting for something like this to come along.”
In the 1950s-set Brooklyn (opens Wednesday in New York and Los Angeles, before expanding nationwide Nov. 25), Ronan plays a young Irish woman named Eilis Lacey whose older sister, Rose, arranges for her to move to New York in hopes of finding better opportunities. Taking a job at a department store, enrolling in night class and falling for a sweet Italian boy, Tony (Emory Cohen), Eilis overcomes homesickness and embraces her city life — that is, until she’s called back to Ireland under grave circumstances, and must choose between her two homes and suitors (Domhnall Gleeson, as Irish beau Jim, who falls for her when she returns).
Role: Mysterious Woman Status: Completed Release: 2021 A love letter to journalists set in an outpost of an American newspaper in a fictional twentieth century French city that brings to life a collection of stories published in "The French Dispatch Magazine".
