In 2014, Knightley was nominated for a Golden Globe, a Screen Actors Guild Award, a BAFTA Award and an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in the historical drama The Imitation Game.
In October 2015, she made her Broadway debut in the title role of Thérèse Raquin.
And despite Ms Knightley’s revelation earlier this month that she often wears wigs because her hair had been ruined from dying it for film roles, the 31-year-old’s flowing tresses were in luscious form.
We sympathize, but technology keeps improving and we have to keep up, too.
Co-starring Molly Parker and Harry Eden, the film had its world premiere at the 2002 Toronto International Film Festival.
However, contrary to the expectations, the film opened at no.
After having appeared in such roles in a spate of television films through the mid-to-late 1990s, including Innocent Lies (1995), The Treasure Seekers (1996), Coming Home (1998), and Oliver Twist (1999), Knightley landed the role of Sabé, Padmé Amidala's handmaiden and decoy, in the 1999 science fiction blockbuster Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace.
Her dialogue was dubbed over by Natalie Portman, who played Padmé.
Her first on-screen appearance was in the 1993 television film, Royal Celebration.
She then played Natasha Jordan, a young girl whose mother is involved in an extramarital affair, in the romantic drama A Village Affair (1995).
