Saoirse Ronan confirms she auditioned for a role in Star Wars: Episode VII

10.01.2013

Well, at least we can take this out of the rumor pile, as actress Saoirse Ronan told Sky News that she has indeed auditioned for a role in J.J. Abrams STAR WARS: EPISODE VII. While speaking to the news outlet, Ronan "confirmed rumours that she’s auditioned for a role - before modestly adding 'so has everyone.'"

The star remained mum on details, however, saying that "bosses" would "chop off her head with a light-sabre" if she said anymore (which is becoming a real possibilty). A lot of names have been tossed about for roles in the upcoming sequel to the massive series, but none have been confirmed as of yet. This is the first time we've had any kind of confirmation outside of the laundry list of rumors.

It's likely that Ronan read for the rumored lead female role, which is said to be the offspring of Han Solo and Princess Leia, but again, there's that pesky word again. All in due time, of course, but with a rabid fanbase built over decades, it's hard for anyone to expect that we'll sit on our hands while waiting on Star Wars casting news. It's Star Wars, man. It goes with the galactic territory.

STAR WARS: EPISODE VII is set to hit theaters sometime in 2015.

I can't really explain why but she would be perfect for the new Star Wars.
And as long as no L Jackson or McGregor is involved (as well as little as possible with the old actors) everything's fine on the casting side.

I'm just gonna say it right now. "This movie will not please everyone."
Then I add, "Neither would any other movie sequel/reboot."

She'd be an excellent fit for STAR WARS

She'd make a great ethereal alien, or do well as Luke Skywalker's daughter, if Luke having kids was indeed canon. The casting has always been good in STAR WARS films, it was the scripts that sucked.

Yes, please.

She's got the chops, and she certainly had the force behind those amazing eyes. I'm down.

She's a great actress and I would be perfectly fine and excited if she were cast in this as a pivotal role. She was terrific in Hannah and The Lovely Bones.

Fantastic Actress!

Will be very happy if she gets the part. For people that aren't familiar with her check out Atonement, Hannah or Byzantium. An even in a shitty movie like the Lovely Bones she still gives a great performance.

Think she'd be perfect

Can only imagine the conflict of such a position - on one hand it's everything many actors can strive for... a career-defining, super high-profile role (I mean, fucking STAR WARS, man!!)... but then it's also the role that will follow you the rest of your career... a plague it's miraculous people like Harrison Ford and Natalie Portman seem to have evaded.

Her fit depends on the role. if you're asking if she can handle a lead role, I definitely do. As long as it fits her acting abilities. That's one of the great things about Star Wars, the universe is so expansive that anyone can be a fit for these movies, just depends on the role. And there can literally be any kind of role in these movies.

She is an absolute beauty, in some weird ethereal way.

I think she would be perfect.

She's been on my "talented actress" radar for a while now, but I think she'd be a perfect fit into the Star Wars universe. Shes got the chops to handle any dramatic stuff, plus I'd like to see her as a Skywalker / Solo offspring so she could crack wise every now and again.

Loved her in Hannah

She easily could be a young Jedi or Sith, either way, I'm just glad casting reports are slowly making our way.

Whoa. I don't think she's the kind of actress who would make something like that up. It seems exciting that this is actually coming to fruition. I guess even after the inundation of rumours, it's still almost too good to be true that there will be more Star Wars movies on the horizon. This somehow makes it that much more real.
