Saoirse Ronan Early Life and Career Beginnings

Irish immigrants Monica and Paul gave birth to Saoirse Ronan on April 12, 1994 in the Bronx neighbourhood of New York City. Her father worked in construction, and her mother was a nanny. When Ronan was three, the family returned to Dublin, Ireland, due to financial difficulties in New York. She attended the Ardattin National School there and later received private home tutoring. On the Irish medical drama “The Clinic,” which debuted in 2003, Ronan made her screen acting debut. She then made an appearance in “Proof’s” second season after that.

Saoirse Ronan’s Start of Film Career

The role of Izzie Mensforth, the character’s daughter played by Michelle Pfeiffer’s character, was played by Ronan in Amy Heckerling’s 2007 romantic comedy “I Could Never Be Your Woman.” She acted in “Death Defying Acts” and “The Christmas Miracle of Jonathan Toomey” the same year. Ronan’s breakthrough came with a fourth album from 2007, “Atonement,” though. She portrayed young aspiring author Briony Tallis in the movie adaptation of the Ian McEwan novel. Briony sets off a tragic sequence of events by accusing her sister’s boyfriend of a crime he didn’t commit. Seven Academy Award nominations for “Atonement,” which include Best Supporting Actress for the 13-year-old Ronan, helped to make her famous.

Ronan received her first leading part in a film in the science-fiction adventure movie “City of Ember” after her phenomenal success with “Atonement.” She also played a prominent role in Peter Jackson’s 2009 film adaptation of the book “The Lovely Bones,” which also starred Mark Wahlberg, Rachel Weisz, Susan Sarandon, and Stanley Tucci. Then, Ronan appeared in “The Way Back,” a survival movie directed by Peter Weir, in a supporting capacity. She played a young assassin in two leading roles in 2011: Hannah, an action thriller, and Violet & Daisy, a crime comedy.

Ronan continued to be cast in leading roles in a number of high-profile movies, such as Neil Jordan’s vampire drama “Byzantium,” Stephenie Meyer’s romantic science-fiction thriller “The Host,” and Meg Rosoff’s speculative drama “How I Live Now.”

In 2014, Ronan had noteworthy supporting roles in Ryan Gosling’s “Lost River” and Wes Anderson’s “The Grand Budapest Hotel.” She then starred in “Stockholm, Pennsylvania” and the Colm Tóibn novel-based romantic period drama “Brooklyn.” Ronan received an Oscar nomination for Best Actress for her work as Irish immigrant Éilis Lacey in the latter movie. Two years later, for her portrayal of the lead high school student in Greta Gerwig’s coming-of-age dramedy “Lady Bird,” she received another nomination.

In 2019, she was nominated for her fourth Academy Award for her role as Jo March in another Greta Gerwig movie, “Little Women.” Among Ronan’s other notable works are “On Chesil Beach,” a novella adaptation by Ian McEwan; “The Seagull,” a play adaptation by Anton Chekhov; the historical drama “Mary Queen of Scots,” in which she played the title character; the romantic comedy “Ammonite,” in which Kate Winslet also starred; and “The French Dispatch,” her second collaboration with Wes Anderson.
