BCRF: Saoirse Ronan

Saoirse Ronan and her Border Collie, Sassy

Saoirse Ronan is an Oscar-nominated American-Irish actress and rising star in Hollywood famous for her roles in The Lovely Bones, Hanna, and Atonement.  She packs a lot of screen presence for such a young actress and she often portrays precious youths put into intensely dramatic situations.

But at heart she’s a sentimental dog lover.  She says that the hardest part of acting is being away from her Border Collie, Sassy, during filming.  When Sally went stray, she was found and reunited with Saoirse by an Irish Blue Cross shelter, who also micro-chipped the dog to make sure she’d get home if she ever went wandering again.  Saoirse was so grateful for the Irish Blue Cross’ work that she campaigned for their fund to build a new animal clinic.  What a classy young woman.
