Saoirse Ronan Recalls Growing Up In The Bronx On 'Fallon'

Saoirse Ronan smiles at the cameras as she arrives at LAX airport on Friday (November 6) in Los Angeles.

The 21-year-old Brooklyn actress wrapped her promo duties in New York City with an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, where she dished about how she’s from the block — just like Jennifer Lopez!

“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.”

    Can’t wait to watch Brooklyn. She was so good in Atonement and she was barely a teenager in that.

    I’ve been hearing great things about “Brooklyn.” Good to see an up and coming actress with some real chops. I’ve seen her before but it seems she is really about to break with this movie. Good for her!!!
