KEIRA KNIGHTLEY established herself as a fast-rising movie star with starring roles opposite Johnny Depp in the blockbuster Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Richard Curtis' ensemble romantic comedy Love Actually, the sleeper hit Bend It Like Beckham, and Gillies MacKinnon's gritty drama Pure. More recently, she starred as Guinevere in Antoine Fuqua's epic adventure King Arthur, opposite Clive Owen and Ioan Gruffudd.
Knightley was just three years old the first time she asked her father, actor Will Knightley, and mother, playwright Sharman Macdonald, to help her find an agent. She appeared in her first television drama, Royal Celebration, at the age of eight, alongside Minnie Driver and Rupert Graves.
In 2001, she was chosen to play the role of Lara in the television adaptation of Doctor Zhivago.
Knightley will next star in director Tony Scott's action thriller Domino, based on the life of Domino Harvey, the daughter of actor Laurence Harvey who gave up modeling to become a bounty hunter, and Working Title's adaptation of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, directed by Joe Wright.
