The Irish actress earned raves in the November coming-of-age movie Lady Bird, which was directed to great acclaim by indie darling Greta Gerwig. Prior to that, Ronan was in the visually-groundbreaking (if coolly reviewed) Loving Vincent, which told the story of painter Vincent van Gogh’s life and featured thousands of hand-painted scenes. The new year will see Ronan in a range of projects with serious literary and historical chops. There’s On Chesil Beach, based on the Ian McEwan novel. (McEwan, of course, is the Scottish author behind Atonement, the movie adaptation of which earned Ronan an Oscar nomination at the age of 13 in 2007.) In 2018, Ronan will also appear in a film based on Anton Chekov’s The Seagull, and in the title role of the historical drama Mary Queen of Scots. ♦
