Film AdaptationIt's been announced that Saoirse (Seer-Shah) Ronan will play Melanie in the film adaptation of The Host. Ronan has had a very succesful past, especially when she was Hanna in the movie Hanna.
"In some aspects, Saoirse Ronan is an even better actress than Kristen Stewart. She's mastered many accents, and has played two characters in one. Saoirse is beautiful, and I couldn't imagine anyone else for the part of Melanie Stryder." - Stephenie Meyer.
