Keira Knightley Biography

Biography

To say that Keira Knightley had early aspirations to be a performer would be a gross understatement. When she was just three, Knightley famously asked her parents -- Sharman Macdonald, an award-winning playwright, and Will Knightley, a theater and television actor -- for an agent. After striving at school despite her dyslexia, Knightley's parents awarded their daughter an agent when she was seven. Knightley's otherworldly beauty was no doubt a factor when she began landing roles in amateur stage productions around London, but she would soon prove to the world that she was not just another pretty face. Not that there's anything wrong with a pretty face.
