Saoirse Ronan homesick while filming The Host


IRISH actress Saoirse Ronan has revealed that she drinks Barry’s tea and listens to Sinead O’Connor to cure homesickness.

The Co Carlow 18-year-old said she suffered her first real spate of homesickness while making her latest blockbuster The Host in the US late last year.
