ONE OF Ireland’s biggest and youngest Hollywood stars gave an exclusive film-acting master class to aspiring young actors in Letterkenny this week.

Saoirse Ronan, star of The Host, came to town with her father, Irish actor Paul Ronan, to deliver the class to the members of An Grianán Youth Theatre.

Last November the Donegal News first reported that Saoirse, one of one of Hollywood’s most sought after young actors, would be visiting Letterkenny.

This major coup would not have been possible without the work of An Grianán Theatre’s Youth Initiative Co-ordinator, Ronan Carr, who set the wheels in motion.

Ronan, who is friends with the Ronan family, has written a short film script entitled Shadow-boxer, which will star the father and daughter actors.

True to their word, Saoirse and Paul came to Letterkenny on Wednesday night and the members of the An Grianán Youth Theatre were truly in awe.
