Saoirse Ronan Explains Why 'Brooklyn' Was The Perfect Role For Her

Saoirse Ronan wears a cute hat while arriving at LAX airport in Los Angeles on Friday afternoon (November 6).

The 21-year-old actress wrapped her promo duties in New York City with an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Catch her appearance below!

“It did feel that way [that the role in Brooklyn was perfect for me], and I think that’s why I felt an awful lot of responsibility to get it right,” Saoirse recently shared.

She continued, “I really wanted to do an Irish film, work with an Irish director on an Irish story — something that was authentic and really told a different story compared to the ones that we’ve heard about Ireland so far. I mean, so many people focused on, like, one part of history for a really long time. I’m fascinated with that story, but I wanted people to see what else we could do.”
