Who The F*ck Is Saoirse Ronan?

Who is Saorise Ronan? You may recognize the actress from films like “Brooklyn” and “Lady Bird.”

But, first and foremost,  you’re likely saying her name wrong — it’s pronounced “Ser-sha.”

The 23-year-old actress loves to represent her home country Ireland and is incredibly proud of where she comes from. She was actually born and raised in the U.S. until she was three years old, then her parents decided to move back to their home country.

She got her start on the small screen as a child actor, in shows like “The Clinic” and the crime drama “Proof.” She was also a huge Harry Potter fan and auditioned for the part of Luna Lovegood, but lost it because she was too young.

Her first major role was in “Atonement,” and she nabbed her first Oscar nomination through it.

She later landed her first leading actress Oscar nomination for “Brooklyn.”

She said that the role was deeply personal, since she related to her character Eilis’ homesickness after moving to London. After that, she took on another lead role in Greta Gerwig’s “Lady Bird.”

This gave her a third Oscar nomination, and in a few weeks — we’ll see if she wins the award.
