Video: Saoirse Ronan Talks The Host Reaching Twilight Levels Of Fame

At a gallery last night, Saorise Ronan talks about The Host and whether she feels she life will be like that of Kristen Stewart and Twilight cast members.

Saoirse also told the Irish Herald that she has home comforts on the set:

The budding A-lister, who travels all over the world, divulged she even packs a plastic bag in her suitcase stuffed with Barry’s Tea and crisps whenever she goes abroad on a shoot.

“Every single film set I go to I have things from home like that with me… It still tastes different though, it’s never a proper Irish cup of tea unfortunately.”

And there was a panic when the starlet ran out of her supply on set in Louisiana, where she filmed Twilight author Stephenie Meyer’s new flick The Host.

“We ran out of teabags over there so we had to get loads more sent over and any Irish person visiting New Orleans was ordered to bring some with them. It’s very important.”

Saoirse Ronan Loves the Host Characters First and Romance Second

Saoirse Ronan chatted with The Irish Independent yesterday about her involvement playing Melanie/Wanderer in The Host.

“It’s a given at this stage that romantic stories are going to be offered to me but I’m more interested in the story and characters. It’s just not important if there are love scenes in it…I have two different characters who are in love with different men…The good thing was that I got on so well with Max and Jake. I knew them both before we started filming and we were very comfortable working together.”

Frances Fisher and William Hurt Confirmed as The Host Cast Members

Stephenie Meyer just updated her website today with this bit of The Host Casting news.

The Host begins filming this coming Monday the thirteenth, and I am so excited. It’s somewhat of a dream to have the creator and director of my favorite sci-fi film (Gattaca) helming this movie. I love the script he’s written, I love his beautiful vision, and I love working with him.

I also can’t say strongly enough how thrilled I am with our cast. The talent involved is unbelievable. We’ve been so blessed/lucky/kissed-by-fate all throughout the casting process. Wanda/Melanie is a very complicated role, and for a long time one of our biggest worries in the producer camp was finding an actress who could bring those two distinct personalities to life. And then Saoirse came along and we all quit worrying. If you’ve never had the pleasure of watching her act, I highly recommend her recent release, Hanna. Actually, watch her in anything she’s done and you’ll see what I mean. After Saoirse joined us, amazing actor after amazing actor signed on until none of us could believe our good fortune. Just the other day I got to meet William Hurt (!!) in full Jeb beard and hair, and it kind of choked me up. He looks amazing—they all look amazing!—and I can’t wait to see them in action next week.

Another incredible addition to our cast—one which I believe I’m the first to announce—Maggie will be played by the wonderful Frances Fisher. Welcome, Frances, I couldn’t be happier that you’ve chosen to join us!

Frances Fisher is probably best remembered as playing Kate Winslet’s mother in Titanic.
