From the young age of twelve, Saoirse (which rhymes with "inertia") Ronan stole our hearts as Briony Tallis in Atonement, and we haven’t had enough of her since. A young and very exciting actress, Ronan has utilized her talents in a variety of exciting roles: girl assassin, teenage vampire, quirky student–you name it. She seems to have done it all, but she’s just starting, and we can’t wait to see what she comes up with next.
