Saoirse Ronan Plays News Anchor on KTLA + ‘How I Live Now’ Premiere with Aly & AJ Michalka

saoirseronan-howilivenowprem-110513Did you know that Saoirse Ronan would love to be a TV presenter?

While on KTLA this morning promoting her new film, How I Live Now, Saoirse got the chance to take over the reins from the KTLA crew to introduce…well…herself. She did a great job and we love how she even poked fun at how people mess up her name.

Later that night, Saoirse joined director Kevin MacDonald at the premiere of the film at the Arclight Hollywood. She was joined by her friends Aly & AJ Michalka at the event.

Set in the near-future UK, Ronan plays Daisy in How I Live Now, an American teenager sent to stay with relatives in the English countryside. Initially withdrawn and alienated, she begins to warm up to her charming surroundings, and strikes up a romance with the handsome Edmund (George MacKay). But on the fringes of their idyllic summer days are tense news reports of an escalating conflict in Europe. When a nuclear device is detonated, the UK falls into a violent, chaotic military state, and Daisy finds herself hiding and fighting to survive.

How I Live Now opens Friday, November 8, 2013. We chatted with Saoirse & Kevin today. Stay tuned for the interview.
