W Magazine: Best Performances 2019

W Magazine: Best Performances 2019

W Magazine has released their yearly list of Best Performances, and Saoirse is featured on the issue for Mary Queen of Scots and On Chesil Beach.

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.

W Magazine is known for giving us, every awards season, a dramatic reading of a popular song at the time. When Saoirse was promoting Brooklyn we were granted Hotline Bling by Drake, and now it’s time for That’s What I Like by Bruno Mars, a song that recently won awards at the Grammys!

Watch below as Saoirse and her fellow Hollywood partners flex their karaoke muscles:

Brilliant. Talented. Funny. Determined. Charming. Alluring. Inventive. The women and men in W’s annual Royals portfolio—as seen here in October’s ten his and hers covers—are all that and then some, and they rose to the top of their fields by sheer force of will. This annual issue has become a treasured tradition— see last year’s class here— our attempt to pay tribute to those in film, television, fashion, and society who have earned the right to call themselves royals, permanent and beloved fixtures in our consciousness. For 2017, we decided to celebrate 25 men and women who dare to challenge stereotypes and conventions by choosing exactly who they want to be—Risk-taking actors like Tilda Swinton and Jared Leto, Renaissance people like ­Shirley MacLaine and Pharrell Williams, controversial figures like Winona Ryder and Marc Jacobs, forward-thinking activists and philanthropists, like Faye Wattleton and Amandla Stenberg, plus many more. In short, they are the heroes of our time and W’s role models for the next generation. And, yes, it bears repeating: They rule.

SAOIRSE RONAN: QUEEN OF HEARTS

Actress Saoirse Ronan, star of the coming-of-age romance Brooklyn, is stealing them left and right.

“I’ve had to spell out my name for confused people my entire life,” said Saoirse (pronounced Sear-sha) Ronan, the star of Brooklyn, in theaters this month. Ronan was calling from her home in Ireland, not far from Enniscorthy, where the film was shot. Brooklyn is based on the Colm Tóibín novel about a young Irish girl who immigrates to America in the 1950s; following a family tragedy, she must choose between her new life in New York and her former one, in Ireland. It’s an old-fashioned story, in the best sense. At a time when strong heroines of the non–comic book variety are increasingly rare, Eilis Lacey, as played by Ronan, is spirited, confused, independent, and unique. “She’s complex, but I would say, somewhat proudly, that Eilis is Irish,” Ronan continued. “And being Irish is part of the reason I never wanted to change my name, even when it was strongly suggested. Saoirse means ‘freedom.’ And my middle name, Una, means ‘unity.’ Freedom and unity—that’s quite a lot to live up to.”

Ronan, who is 21, actually was born in the Bronx. Her parents left their native Ireland in the ’80s in search of work. In New York, Ronan’s mother was employed as a nanny and her father tended bar at a place that was popular with actors from the Irish Repertory Theatre. “They convinced my dad to audition for a play,” Ronan said. “He did it as a lark, but got the part.” When Ronan was 3, her family returned to Ireland; her dad, whose acting career was starting to take off, noticed that she loved being filmed. “I am an only child, and I would disappear into my own world. I staged long, intricate soap operas with my dolls. My father saw that I was drawn to the camera, and I think he felt it took me out of myself.”
