Saoirse Ronan's 'Star Wars' Audition Included A Pretend Lightsaber


Saoirse Ronan has already confirmed that she auditioned for "Star Wars: Episode VII," but in an interview with Empire, the actress revealed she actually held a lightsaber. Sort of.

"Nobody has a clue what it's about, and nobody's read the script. So I've gone in and read for it, but I have to say, I think it's the only time I've ever thought, 'You know what? Even if I don't get it, I had so much fun auditioning, pretending to take out a lightsaber –- out of a bag, kind of inspect it and not know what it is,'" Ronan said. "That was ... that was great. A lightsaber! 'Star Wars'!'"

Ronan is one of many stars who have potentially discussed the film with director J.J. Abrams, including reportedly Benedict Cumberbatch and Alex Pettyfer. According to Ronan, "everyone" has auditioned for the film thus far.

Latino Review was the first site to report on Ronan's audition.

More from Ronan can be found at Empire.
