The Host and Byzantium actress just admitted to trying out for a part in a galaxy far, far away.

A few weeks ago, we mentioned the rumor that Saoirse Ronan had auditioned for a lead role in Star Wars Episode VII. That rumor was confirmed when Ronan was interviewed by Sky News.

To try and cool people's heels about her audition, Ronan was quick to say that, though she had read for the film, "so has everyone." And while we're sure that's true in part, Ronan is a someone we've now heard about more than once, and in connection with potentially playing Han Solo and Princess Leia’s daughter.

But pressed to add more, Ronan insisted that, if she did indulge any further, someone would "chop off her head with a lightsaber."

What do you think? Is Ronan a good fit for Star Wars? And, if so, what role would you have her read for if it was up to you?
