Like so many other women, 25-year-old Ronan was already well-versed in Louisa May Alcott's iconic novel “Little Women" when she first caught wind that her “Lady Bird” director Greta Gerwig was doing a remake.

“I was like, I need to play Jo," Ronan told Dazed Magazine, whom she chatted with alongside her costar Laura Dern this month. “There’s no one else I understand as fully as I did Jo. She needed to be a tornado, this bloody twister coming into the room and messing everything up a bit.”

In bringing Jo March to life, or rather, back to life, Ronan says she got to portray a mother-daughter relationship that was new to her on-screen, but one that was based in her own reality: “It was the first time I played a part in a mother-daughter relationship where it was so tender. In Lady Bird, they are at each other’s throats the whole time, but this is a love affair between the mother and the daughter.

"It felt the most like my relationship with my mum that I’ve ever experienced on a film set.”

“(Saoirse) and I doing the scene in the attic will forever be one of my top memories of my life as an actor. It’s the weirdest, most wonderful memory... It’s the fever of these two women talking to each other about how they should be allowed to live their lives” – @lauradern⁠ ⁠ When Laura met Saoirse.

While taking on another iteration of "Little Women" may seem daunting, Ronan said there was no shortage of horseplay amongst the girls on set: “The way we all were with each other, we were like boys. (laughs) Wrestling all the time. No, actually – we were like girls because that’s exactly what girls do, but we wrestled all the time. 

“And we were always telling these filthy jokes – and winding you up, and you took it so well. It was just this amazing energy that existed between all of us straight away. 

“Physically we were all really comfortable with each other, we would sit on each other, wrap ourselves around one another.

Ronan adds: "One of the things I like about acting is the relationships you can form when you’re working, especially between actors. You could meet someone on the Monday and by Wednesday you’ll have kissed them, you’ll have hugged them, you’ll have danced with them, they’ll have seen you in a corset or an underdress or a pair of boxer shorts. Any insecurities you had just go out the window because they have to. I think that was even more extreme on this job because we were in a group of girls and I think that’s very unusual.”
