14 year old Irish teenager Saoirse Ronan (represented by MacFarlane-Chard in Ireland) continues to be in demand. It's reported by Variety that she's just been cast in the long-awaited new film The Way Back from acclaimed director Peter Weir, alongside Colin Farrell. Saoirse, who has been acting since she was 8, swept to fame on her performance in Atonement which earned her an Oscar nomination. Although her latest release City of Ember has not fared so well with the critics, this year's release The Lovely Bones, in which she stars as Susie Salmon, looks set to rocket her even further into the Hollywood stratosphere.
