at 1:00 pm | By

The Host, opening in theaters everywhere this Friday, March 29th, is ready to take the world by storm, and so is the young breakout star of the movie, Saoirse Ronan.

Before you grab your tickets and head down to see this sci-fi epic from the mind of Stephenie Meyer, creator of the Twilight Saga, we’re here to get you up to speed on the movie’s super-talented lead actress.

From the proper way to pronounce her name, to the details on her Oscar nomination, we’ve got everything you need to know about this unforgettable young actress in the video above.

The Host which stars Ronan, Jake Abel, Max Irons and Diane Kruger has fans justifiably excited. It’s the first work from Meyer since the end of the Twilight Saga – and although it takes place in a completely different world from the one inhabited by Edward and Bella, the movie (and the book upon which it is based) carries much of the same magic, romance and spirit as the mega-popular series that preceded it.
