Biography

Keira Knightley was born on March 26, 1985, to actor/playwright parents in Teddington, Middlesex, England. At 3 years of age, she asked her mother for an agent, feeling jealous that she never received the same amount of calls her parents did. At age 6, the Knightleys agreed to let their daughter have an agent provided that she studies every day during the summer holidays.  This was no small feat for the young Keira Knightley who is dyslexic, but she persevered. Although her parents envisioned a more secure career for their daughter, Keira Knightley started to get various acting jobs. Schooling at a nearby comprehensive establishment remained her focal point, but acting as a career choice gradually became a reality. keira knightley in star wars Pursuing artistic integrity and the satisfaction derived from playing different characters, Keira Knightley's hard work paid off at an early age. European made-for-TV movies and shows started to dot her resume by the age of 11, but it was a stroke of luck that helped her along the way. Thanks to hard work, and a close resemblance to star Natalie Portman, Keira Knightley was cast as Portman's handmaiden in Star Wars: Episode 1 - The Phantom Menace. Her small but memorable performance garnered her attention in Britain and the U.S. After the release of the film in 1999, Keira landed a role in an Oliver Twist TV miniseries portraying Rose Fleming. keira knightley appears in doctor zhivago After Star Wars and Oliver Twist, things got even better.

This was all before her 18th birthday.
