The daughter of actor 'Will Knightley' and playwright 'Sharman Macdonald'. After she requested an agent at the age of three, her parents allowed her to work on productions in her summer holidays.

Her first role was at the age of 9, in Moira Armstrong's A Village Affair (1995). However, Knightley's first high profile role came in 1999, as Sabe, Decoy Queen to Natalie Portman's Queen Amidala in Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace (1999). Since then she has completed an impressive array of films including The Hole (2001), but is probably best known for her role of tomboy footballer Jules Paxton in Gurinder Chadha's Bend It Like Beckham (2002).

  • Voted The Sexiest Film Star of All Time by Empire magazine poll. [September 2004]
  • When auditioning for the role of Jackie Price in _The Jacket (2005)_ (qv), she had suffered food poisoning a few days earlier. She decided to audition anyway and the film makers liked her "acting" for the scene, as Jackie Price was to be a woman with many issues of loss and pain as well as being physically sick in general.
  • Tatler announced that Keira is the most desirable single woman in the UK (2004).
  • The similarity between Knightley and 'Natalie Portman' (qv) meant that during the filming of _Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace (1999)_ (qv), their own mothers could not tell them apart once in makeup.
  • Loves to collect shoes.
  • In 2007, Forbes Magazine estimated her earnings for the year at $9 million.
  • Voted second sexiest voice, behind Sir 'Sean Connery' (qv), in a poll by the UK's Royal National Institute for the Blind, commissioned to celebrate 70 years of their Talking Books service.
