Saoirse Ronan

Born 12 April 1994, Saoirse Ronan, pronounced ‘Sersha’, is an Irish film actress who began her career as a child and came to international prominence in 2007 after co-starring in the film “Atonement” – which earned her first nominations for a BAFTA, a Golden Globe and an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress.

In her next big role, Ronan was widely praised once again in her role as Susie Salmon in “The Lovely Bones“, for which she received yet another nomination for a BAFTA, amonst several other nominations.

Her newest role is set to be in ‘Hanna’ (set to premiere in the UK 6th May), Ronan plays a teenage girl. Uniquely, she has the strength, the stamina, and the smarts of a soldier; these come from being raised by her father, an ex-CIA man, in the wilds of Finland. Living a life unlike any other teenager, her upbringing and training have been one and the same, all geared to making her the perfect assassin.
