Saoirse Ronan is hard at work filming her next movie, and today we have our first look at the busy young actress as Daisy in Kevin MacDonald’s “How I Live Now”, based on the young adult novel by Meg Rosoff. Rosoff posted the image on her website (via The Playlist), commenting on Ronan’s wardrobe and hair color, telling a fan “I’m not sure it’s how i imagined her originally. I think I thought she’d have dark hair. But now I can’t see Daisy as anyone but Saoirse.”
The film revolves around Ronan’s Daisy, who is forced to go on the run with her cousins when their English countryside residence is beset by unknown enemy armies. Recently British actor George Mackay landed the male lead of Daisy’s cousin and love interest (yep, you read that right) Edmond, while Tom Holland will play another cousin, Osbert, who is a mash-up of two characters from the book.
Filming is now underway in Wales and you can see the first image featuring Ronan’s new platinum-blonde do below.
