Saoirse Ronan is “really disappointed” she couldn’t appear in ‘The Hobbit’. The 17-year-old actress initially jumped at the chance to work with director Peter Jackson – after previously starring in his adaptation of Alice Sebold’s novel ‘The Lovely Bones’ – but eventually decided she has to concentrate on her Hollywood career rather than moving to New Zealand to be in the film.

    I am disappointed, too. She is an amazing actress and I was looking forward to see her as an Elf… I prefer her over Evangeline Lilly any day. 🙁

    While I feel sorrry for her not being in the film I believed that her part in the film was an EXTRA character. Therefore, WHY was she asked to be available for a year? Two weeks would have been enough!

    No more cameos or extra characters, please. There are enough in “The Hobbit” already without further introduction of additional ones.

    “but eventually decided she has to concentrate on her Hollywood career.”
    Shouldn’t she be concentrating on her A Levels?
