The Graham Norton Show

The Graham Norton Show

Series 22 - Episode 17



She may have just been nominated for her third Oscar for her performance in Lady Bird, and featured in a long list of major films, but everybody in showbiz still seems to struggle when it comes to pronouncing Saoirse (It’s Sersha like inertia, to quote her Saturday Night Live monologue) Ronan’s name.

Graham Norton shouldn’t have too much trouble with it – he’s Irish, after all – but it might prove a little bit more of a mouthful for Will & Grace stars Debra Messing and Eric McCormack, who share the sofa with the actress this evening. Music comes courtesy of Keala Settle, who performs This Is Me from The Greatest Showman, which also picked up an Oscar nomination, for best original song.


Debra Messing and Eric McCormack discuss the return of their TV sitcom Will & Grace, while actress Saoirse Ronan chats about her film Lady Bird, for which she has been Oscar-nominated, and Keala Settle performs This Is Me from The Greatest Showman. Graham also subjects more audience members to the dreaded red chair - so their stories had better be good.
