Saoirse Ronan is one of the few young actresses in Hollywood today than call pull of juggling franchise fare, indie films, and serious dramas. She will next be seen in Wes Anderson's wonderfully whimsical and quirky 'The Grand Budapest Hotel', starring a who's who of Anderson regulars, including Bill Murray, Adrien Brody, Harvey Keitel, Jude Law, and Edward Norton.
Ronan plays a character named Agatha, who is the love interest to newcomer Tony Revolori's Zero. In a recent interview, Ronan describes the actual experience of working with Wes Anderson, and how enriching she found filming with the famed director.
At the recent premiere for the film, Ronan explained, "I kept thanking Wes while we were shooting because I couldn't quite believe that he had asked me to be in it. It's just such an amazing group of actors to be involved with and the crew were fantastic so it was a real honour for me. When I went on set for the first time it truly felt like I was part of this Wes Anderson experience; everything was so tactile and real and alive and it was quite a surreal moment."
While this is Ronan's highest-profile release this year, she has supposedly been rumored for some big projects in the past few months, including Fantastic Four, Terminator, and Star Wars. While she has not landed any of those roles, it's clear that her talent and magnetism on-screen will be more than enough to see her coast through Hollywood like a charm.
The Grand Budapest Hotel is currently in limited release across the US, but will soon expand nationally and internationally within the next few months.
