Paris — Making its world premiere in Competition, Foxtel’s eight-part series “The Kettering Incident” arrived as one of the more rarefied entries at this year’s Series Mania in Paris.

Since we forgot to celebrate Saint Patricks Day and since Brooklyn is fresh on DVD, let's talk everyone's favorite current Irish lass! Saoirse Ronan is only 21 years old (she turns 22 next month) but she's already logged over a decade of work having started as a child in a Irish television series called "The Clinic".
