Irish actress Saoirse Ronan has been in the movie business from a very young age and, while she has already appeared in a number of movies, she is set to become a huge star, following the release of the movie The Host. Saoirse has another movie out later in the year, How I Live Now and , while promoting The Host, Saoirse has spoken about filming How I Live Now.
Ronan told Collider, "Yeah, as you can tell from the massive smile on my face, I’m very excited about How I Live Now. I haven’t seen it yet, but it’s Kevin, from working on it, I think Kevin’s going to do a great job on it. The great thing about Kevin is that he’s made some fantastic films, but he’s also made wonderful documentaries, and he brings that practical element into his filmmaking. He’s very hands-on."
She added, "A lot of it looks like it’s been shot, I mean a lot of it has been shot on a handheld camera, and Franz Lustig, who’s the DP on it, he’s very spontaneous when it comes to camera work and camera operating. There were a lot of scenes — it was just a bunch of kids, it was just all kids that was in it, really — there was one scene where we’re all around a breakfast table and every single take was different because we had a 10-year-old who would do something different every time."
Saoirse continued, "We had goats running through the shot because it’s set on a farm and Franz was just kind of running around capturing it all, with the result, the energy that you get throughout this film, it’s so balls in the whole way through. It’s so electric. I’m really excited about it, so I can’t wait to see it. There’s going to be like, really cool music in it. The way it’s shot is great, the look of it, the actors in it are brilliant. We’ve got Tom Holland and George MacKay and Peppa Pig, do you know the cartoon Peppa Pig?"
As well as starring Saoirse Ronan, How I Live Now also stars Tom Holland, George MacKay and Sophie Ellis. How I Live Now has been directed by directed by Kevin Macdonald and is set to hit the big screen in both the US and the UK later in the year. While most people have been getting overly excited about the release of The Host, we cannot wait to see How I Live Now.
