BE­COM­ING MARY

US Weekly - - US MUSTS -

Over five years ago, Saoirse Ro­nan signed

on to Mary Queen of Scots. To­day, she’s still mes­mer­ized by the role of Mary Stu­art. “I think it’s im­por­tant to show re­lat­able char­ac­ters who have the same self-doubt and make the same mis­takes

as ev­ery­one else,” says Saoirse, 24. SEP­A­RA­TION

FAC­TOR In or­der to cre­ate a re­al­is­tic in­tro­duc­tion, Saoirse and Mar­got Rob­bie (who por­trays Queen El­iz­a­beth I) didn’t in­ter­act until their char­ac­ters met on­screen, which was on Saoirse’s first day on set and Mar­got’s last. “We were both shak­ing,” the Golden Globe win­ner notes. “It was very emo­tional to fi­nally see

each other.”
