Saoirse Ronan, born 12 April 1994, is an Irish film actress best known for her roles in ''Atonement'' (for which she recieved an AcademyAward nomination) and ''Film/TheLovelyBones''. She is known for her portrayal of mature characters, [[FakeNationality who rarely are Irish]].
----
!!Roles:
* ''{{Literature/Atonement}}'' as Briony Tallis
* ''Film/ICouldNeverBeYourWoman'' as Izzie Hanson
* ''CityOfEmber'' as Lina Mayfleet
* ''Film/TheLovelyBones'' as Susie Salmon
* ''TheWayBack'' as Irena
* ''{{Hanna}}'' as Hanna Heller
* ''Literature/TheHost'' as Melanie Stryder
* ''Violet & Daisy'' as Daisy
* ''{{Film/Byzantium}}'' as Eleanor
* ''Literature/HowILiveNow'' as Daisy
* ''The Grand Budapest Hotel'' as Agatha
----
!!This actress provides examples of:
* DyeingForYourArt: She'll be 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.
* IdenticalStranger: Resembles a younger version of French actress [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sylvie_Testud Sylvie Testud]].
* IrishNames: Saoirse is classically pronounced 'Seer-sha', but the actress prefers to pronounce her own name as 'Sur-sha'. Feel free to ask her why if you get the chance.
* PlayingAgainstType: ''Hanna'' is easily her most physical role.
* StarMakingRole: Briony Tallis in ''Atonement''.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** Auditioned for the role of [[Film/HarryPotter Luna Lovegood]], which went to Creator/EvannaLynch.
** Turned down the role of Lyra in ''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 The Hobbit]]'' because of other commitments.
* YoungerThanTheyLook: Given she's already playing twenty-somethings, it's hard to believe Saoirse barely hit 19.

* MeaningfulName: Saoirse means "freedom" in Irish and her middle name Una means "unity", which may tell you something about her parent's [[TheTroubles political views]].
* NoPronunciationGuide: Imagine her explaining the pronunciation of her name every time, must be really annoying.
