At 17, actress Saoirse Ronan has achieved a net worth rare for someone her age. With an estimated net worth of approximately $2.5 million dollars, she has the talent and star power to back up her financial earnings. Her first movie was Atonement, released in 2003. She got the part of 13-year-old Briony Tallis, who aspires to be a novelist, by beating out hundreds of actresses in an audition for director Joe Wright. For her performance in Atonement, she received an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress – and at 13 years old, she was one of the youngest actresses to receive one. After Atonement, Ronan has continued to work regularly, starring in the young adult adaptation City of Embers, Peter Jackson's The Lovely Bones, and Peter Weir's The Way Back. Her most high-visibility role yet came in her reunion with Atonement's director Joe Wright, the action-thriller Hanna. In it, she plays a young girl, wise (and deadly) beyond her years, raised in the wildlife by her secret agent father. Her performance in the film was wildly praised for its realism and believability. With a talent for acting rare at any age, Saoirse Ronan is sure to continue a great career well into adulthood and beyond.
