LONDON, Oct. 2 (UPI) -- New York-born Irish actress Saoirse Ronan says she has auditioned for Hollywood's "Star Wars: Episode VII," but she declined to say for which role she is vying.

Ronan, 19, has starred in the films "Atonement," "City of Ember," "The Lovely Bones" and "The Host."

The actress told Sky News she tried out for a part in the upcoming "Star Wars" sequel, but added, "everyone" has been auditioning to be in the movie, which is set for release in 2015.

Sky News speculated Ronan may be up for the role of Han Solo and Princess Leia's daughter.

Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher played Han and Leia in the three original "Star Wars" blockbusters.
