Saoirse Ronan Talks Playing Melanie / Wanda in ‘The Host’

Our good friend at Page to Premiere got a chance to talk to actress Saoirse Ronan about her role in the movie based on Stephenie Meyer’s other book, The Host.

I had the great opportunity to chat with Saoirse Ronan at the premiere of ‘Breaking Dawn – Part 2′! She plays the dual role of Melanie / Wanda in The Host, which is based on the novel by Stephenie Meyer. We talked about the challenges of the part, how they adapted the “two souls in one body” storyline to screen, playing a more grown-up romantic role than she’s ever played, and if she had to do any training for the part. The film was directed by Andrew Niccol, and also stars Max Irons and Jake Abel as Melanie / Wanda’s love interests in their “love quadrangle.” (Not triangle, there are four of them!) Are you excited to see Saoirse Ronan in The Host?
