Thanks to his diligence and resemblance to Natalie Portman, Knightley hit the cast of the movie “Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace” on the role of a maid Queen Amidala, played by Portman. This small but memorable role has attracted the attention of both in Britain and in the United States, and after the film’s release in 1999, Knightley had a role in the miniseries Rose Fleming “Oliver Twist.”
Keira Knightley, which is sometimes presented as Kjer Knightley, was born March 22, 1985 in a family of actors and writers in Teddington, a suburb of London. For three years the little Keira asked her mother to hire her own agent, who was looking for her to suitable projects for participation, as it seemed strange that her mom and dad get so many offers through its agents, and herself no one notices. At the age of six parents Knightley agreed to allow her daughter to have an agent, but on the condition that she will diligently practice every day during their summer holidays. For Caro, who grew up with a small defect in development – dyslexia (when people can not pronounce long words), it was a great gift.
At first, her main goal has remained diligent in school, but little by little progress on the acting career started to become a reality. Hard work on the development of Keir their artistic skills soon began to bear fruit. By the age of 11 her resume has been updated with the participation in the European mini-teleserilah and local shows, but I must admit that on her way to the status of a popular actress played a big part luck. Thanks to his diligence and resemblance to Natalie Portman, Knightley hit the cast of the movie “Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace” on the role of a maid Queen Amidala, played by Portman. This small but memorable role has attracted the attention of both in Britain and in the United States, and after the film’s release in 1999, Knightley had a role in the miniseries Rose Fleming “Oliver Twist.”
After the “Star Wars” and “Oliver Twist” things got even better. In 2001, Knightley starred in the successful British movie “The Hole”, and in 2002 he spent three months in Slovakia, acting in “Doctor Zhivago,” which starred Keira Lara – the heroine, which in 1965 played Julie Christie in the popular film version of the novel . All this happened when Keire was not yet eighteen. But the real breakthrough in the great movie was the project of 2002 “Bend It Like Beckham.” The film has gained immense popularity in the UK, and its success can even compare with what once made the comedy “My Big Fat Greek Wedding.” Coming out of the category of “underground” films, he began to gain fans and increase fees in the US box office in no small part due to the excellent game Knightley.
Summer 2003 saw the release of the big box office hits – Hollywood blockbuster “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl” with Keira Knightley in the female lead. After the release of this epic adventure to Keire come true success, not comparable with the fact that she was getting before. Now many people speak about it. The film opened her way to Hollywood Olympus, and now offers pouring in abundance.
Her last film to date – a comedy “Love Actually”, released in November this year. Keira Knightley now is on the verge of getting a role that can translate it to the Super League in Hollywood. Recently, 18-year-old actress drew the eyes of the Steven Spielberg. The famous director wants, she performed one of the roles in the fourth (probably the last) part of the “Jurassic Park.” Knightley said in an interview: “I was just shocked by this proposal, because over the years really love this movie. Steven said that he really liked how I coped with her role in the film” Bend It Like Beckham “, and he wants to meet with me. I think that there has not been without the help of Sam Neill, who has had to withdraw from the two films of the series and plans to take part in the fourth part. together we starred in “Doctor Zhivago.” In “Jurassic Park IV” , according to Stephen, there are two suitable role for me. one of them – is the role of the granddaughter of one of the protagonists. Another role is one of the key in the new film, but the more I say I can not yet, so as not to incur the wrath of Stephen. ”
Currently Knightley in the movie famous director Antoine Fuqua “King Arthur”, where she got the role of Queen Guinevere. Also, it is expected to participate in the planned sequel “Pirates of the Caribbean” and the new film with Jude Law “Fire tulip.”
“Pirates of the Caribbean 2” will be released in wide release until 2005. And in the next, 2004, in addition to “King Arthur” and “Heat tulip”, is expected to yield the movie “Jacket” with Keira and Adrien Brody Oscar winner.
In addition to filming a movie, at Keir has other plans, in particular, it’s going to go back to college and finally finish my studies. However, it is now fully occupied during the shooting and did not even guess when exactly the same accomplished her return to college: “I left school to concentrate on filming the movie” Cleansing “, having studied for only three months in college. Then he immediately began to participate in the project “Doctor Zhivago”, and after that I was quite for nothing was to be the time, so I could not go back.
“Cleansing” was totally art-house. The film received fantastic reviews in the UK, but it is unlikely to see a big audience because it was filmed specially for the “independent channels” in the UK. I received many letters of appreciation from people who are crazy about this film. It was shown late at night, and I was surprised that many people do not sleep at this time, only to see the movie. It was great creation shotladsky director Gilles MacKinnon, an admirer of talent which I was for a long time. ”
And now try to trace the path from childhood to Keir gaining “star” status.
– In high school I was zubrilkoy. Was sort of an excellent student-to spearhead our class. I always first raised his hand. My homework was done always on time. I never had to stay after school. Now I am ashamed to even talk about it, because this pattern of behavior is so boring! But then I was focused on success in school and was very afraid that I can something not happen. Therefore, the acting was for me a kind of escape from possible failures in school. If the school has gone something wrong, I could always say, “But I know how it is!” But now, when I graduated from high school, I was nowhere to retreat. That is, if I have something I do not get to the movies, it is no substitute for I would not have, and it scares me. Now, when I have achieved such heights in his career, I’m still amazed at how quickly it came to me. Role in “Pirates of the Caribbean” I was very much like something easy. I called my agent and asked, “Would you like to play in this movie?” I replied: “Of course!”
“Pirates of the Caribbean” became for me an unforgettable experience. Johnny Depp is simply amazing! He’s a great guy and a phenomenally talented actor. The entire film crew was as the selection is good, and we had a great time during the period of filming. In the film, I had to kiss by Orlando Bloom, and it was just awesome! The film was so massive that I can not imagine even greater project. Now I’m waiting for – can not wait to release the second part. “
