Interviewed Soairse last week for The Sunday Times. Delightful lass. Has starred in several major movies and still only 16. Her new film, Hanna, is an unusual one for both her and Joe Wright (who directed her to an Oscar nomination in Atonement as the young Briony Tallis) — and action film about a junior Femme Nikita-esque assassin. I had to sign my life away saying that I won't review it online. Let's just say that it packs a punch (stars also Eric Bana and Cate Blanchett) and that Saoirse is fantastic in it. I know she top-lined The Lovely Bones, but you get the sense this film might be the next big step to stardom for the Irish actress... Oh and it's pronounced "soo-sha".
