* ItsPronouncedTroPay: She says that Irish people normally pronounce her name "seer-sha" but she would pronounce it "ser-sha", similar to 'inertia'. Between these were the many mispronunciations by the Hollywood media during press for Brooklyn.

* ContractualPurity: Her parents would only allow her to play Susie in ''Film/TheLovelyBones'' if the book's graphic rape scene wasn't included in the film. Besides that she shockingly enough has never had much of a family friendly image. Films like ''Film/ICouldNeverBeYourWoman'', ''{{Literature/Atonement}}'', ''Film/TheWayBack'' and ''{{Film/Hanna}}'' helped avoid this. The only remotely family friendly project she did as a child star was ''Film/CityOfEmber''.
* DyeingForYourArt: She's a redhead in ''[[http://www.saoirse-ronan.org/gallery/albums/Movies/Byzantium/OnSetDec1311/003.jpg Byzantium]]'' and ''[[http://saoirse-ronan.org/gallery/albums/Movies/TheHost/Promos/001.jpg The Host]]'' and light blonde in ''[[http://saoirse-ronan.org/gallery/albums/Movies/HowILiveNow/Promos/022.jpg How I Live Now]]''.
* FakeNationality: Her specialty. Saoirse has played English, Scottish, Polish and Finnish characters. She's also played a couple of Americans but since she was born in New York (to Irish parents) that may or may not count. Her role as Agatha in ''The Grand Budapest Hotel'' is the first time she's used her real accent in a film (although her character is actually a citizen of a fictional Central European country). She finally gets to play an Irish character in the film ''Brooklyn''.
** She pokes fun at this in an interview. After stating she's originally from New York she states that "you can tell by my accent."



* PlayingAgainstType: ''Hanna'' is easily her most physical role.
* StarMakingRole: Briony Tallis in ''Atonement''.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: She's infamous for this.
** Auditioned for the role of Luna Lovegood in ''Film/HarryPotter'', which went to Creator/EvannaLynch.
** Turned down the role of Lyra in ''Film/TheGoldenCompass'' because she didn't want such a long-term commitment to a project. Fears turned out to be unfounded anyway, as the film wasn't successful enough to warrant a full trilogy.
** Auditioned for the part of Katniss Everdeen in ''Film/TheHungerGames''.
** She had to turn down the part of Tauriel in ''Film/TheHobbit'' because of other commitments. She was also in talks to play Itaril but when she backed out, the character was ultimately cut from the film.
** Was very nearly reunited with Keira Knightley for ''Literature/AnnaKarenina'' but couldn't do it.
** Auditioned for Rey in ''TheForceAwakens''.
** It's rumored she was up for the role of ComicBook/ScarletWitch in the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse, which ended up going to Creator/ElizabethOlsen.
