Saoirse Ronan Interview in ‘Total Film’

April 2, 2011 at 6:20 am by Calisuri  - 

If you fell for our April Fool’s yesterday, don’t feel too bad. We included a long standing rumor of Saoirse Ronan as Itaril to help convince you the release was ‘real.’ As we all know, Saoirse has been talking about her possible role as Itaril the elf for a few months. The latest piece of evidence that she is in fact already cast comes from the latest issue of Total Film magazine. In the ‘Buzz’ section, Total Film interviews Saoirse Ronan and asks…

You’re just about to start shooting The Hobbit – how long have you known that you might be in it?

When I did The lovely Bones, they said, “We want you to be in The Hobbit.” I love the book. It’d be so cool to go back to New Zealand Again.

The question is pretty clear she is cast and she doesn’t refute it in the answer. Just another piece of evidence that we will see Saoirse in The Hobbit. But will she be the created role of Itaril? Another role? We won’t know until the real official press release. Thanks to Ringer TheArcher777 for sending in a scan of the interview for your viewing pleasure. Share your thoughts and opinion in our comments, forum and on facebook!

    Cool read, but Sur-shur? Really, that’s how it’s pronounced?

  2. fingolfin says:

    In all these interviews she always talks like she’d like to do it but nothing has actually happened yet. I really hope it doesn’t happen

  3. Ereg says:

    I’m fine if she’s in it. I AM NOT FINE if she’s the previously described Itaril. I don’t care if she says she loves the book, what kind of Tolkien/Hobbit fan compromises the integrity of the film just so she can be in it? Who’s more important, you or Tolkien? I’m not a “purist” in that I understand what it takes to adapt a book to film, but creating such an un-Tolkien add-on for partiality to an actress? I hope I’m shamed and it turns out great, and I’m probably being too judgmental, but I fear for the quality of the films. Prove me wrong, Sir Pete!

  4. Tauriel says:

    Actually, she doesn’t confirm anything. Just that she’d love to be in the film (and let’s be honest, who wouldn’t?).

  5. Taryn Lyon says:

    Yeah, in gaelic ‘se’ and ‘si’ combination are pronounced ‘sh’. That’s why Siobhan is pronounced ‘Shivan’. Hope that helps! 😀

  6. Blair says:

    her name is pronounced SER-SHA.

  7. Blair says:

    her name is pronounced SER-SHA.

  8. Blair says:

    her name is pronounced SER-SHA.

  9. Riley says:

    Actually, she said THEY want her to be in the film.

    “When I did The Lovely Bones”… that’s quite some time ago, isn’t it? Things might change a lot in that span.

  11. Joe says:

    The Hobbit is not a love story and shouldnt be manipulated to be one just to increase box office revenue!

  12. John says:

    Peter Jackson: “Ereg, I want you to be in The Hobbit. It’s a made up character.”

    Ereg:”No way. It’ll compromise it.”

    Yea right.
