Between 2008 to 2011, she starred in a number of successful movies, including City of Ember (2008), which earned her a nomination for Irish Film & Television Award, The Lovely Bones (2009), for which she was nominated for a BAFTA Award, and The Way Back (2010/I), for which she won Irish Film & Television Award for Actress in a Supporting Role.

Saoirse Ronan lives in County Carlow, Ireland.

Her father is established actor Paul Ronan, known for films like The Devil's Own (1997) and Veronica Guerin (2003).

Her parents are Paul Ronan and Monica Ronan.

Has a border collie dog named Sassy.

In traditional Irish, the name Saoirse is pronounced "seer-sha", and that is the way she pronounces it when she's in Ireland. When she's talking to people from North America she pronounces it "sur-shuh".

Was in New Zealand when it was announced that she was nominated for Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role in Atonement (2007).

Was ranked #23 on Entertainment Weekly's '30 Under 30' the actress list. (2008).

Although she was born in New York City, she was raised in Ireland.

She does not watch football, but supposes she supports Manchester United.

She says she misses her dog Sassy the most whilst she's away from home.

Her favorite books are "City of Ember" and "The Secret of Platform 13".

In 2008, at the age of 13, she became the seventh youngest actress to be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Atonement (2007). The only actresses younger than her to be nominated are Tatum O'Neal, Mary Badham, Quinn Cummings, Abigail Breslin, Patty McCormack and Anna Paquin.

Is an only child.

Moved from New York to Ireland when she was three and has lived there ever since.

Peter Jackson cast her with the intent of having an "unknown" play the lead role of Susie Salmon, but things changed when in the middle of filming The Lovely Bones (2009), Ronan was nominated for an Oscar, BAFTA, and Golden Globe for her performance in Atonement (2007).

Was cast in Ridley Scott's vision of Robin Hood (2010), but dropped out in order to do Peter Weir's film The Way Back (2010/I).

Peter Jackson cast her as the lead character in his film The Lovely Bones (2009) based on an audition tape she sent in from Ireland. They were so impressed by the tape that they did not even meet her prior to offering her the role.

TIME Magazine ranked her performance in The Lovely Bones (2009) as the 3rd greatest female performance of 2009 just behind Mo'Nique and Carey Mulligan, and ahead of Meryl Streep.

She was offered the role of Kitty in Anna Karenina (2012/I) but turned it down to star in Byzantium (2012) and The Host (2013). Her reasoning for turning down the film was its long production schedule which would have required her to turn down movie roles from Fall 2011 to late Spring 2012 to film what would have ended up as a supporting role. By the turning down the role, she was able to take the lead role in two films. She was replaced by Alicia Vikander.
