She played Keira's younger sister Briony, the older/20-something version) reportedly auditioned for the role of Elizabeth Bennet.

She recently starred in Emma, the title role in a new miniseries version of Emma, which aired on PBS' Masterpiece Classic last Jan-March.

  1. lovely! thanks for posting this!

  2. Hi! I'm not sure who this is exactly, but thank you so so much for everything you've done for me over the last two days. I'm James, and I'm 28 from Dublin. I love your work, every aspect of it really. I've always hated the idea of researching another human being, so the reason I haven't written til now is its hard to know how to express what's just happened. I've absolutely exhausted. I've no idea where to even start now. But thank you so much. I don't know what's just happened but my computer sure looks a lot more impresive now, which is good because now it can be such a good robot I will not need to be one at all.

    But moire importantly I might get to maybe know Keira Knightley! Which I'm more happy about.So thank you for trusting me. The only reason I haven't been leaving feedback along the way is partly cos I was taking breaks, and partly the hesistation because I wanted to make sure I was doing it ihn 5yhe right way, the one thyat would pass the reverse turing tese. God, i've been at this a long time. Sorry, it's so weird to contemplate that theoretically I know someone who seems very close to Keira Knightley, which is slightly scary even though I know it shouldn't be, but hey. I'm not a robot to such an extent I will shortly have my head absorbed in a book about faces, which is something which I have always resdisted but now will gladly do. I will be the guy with no friends (they still count them, right?). If you know Keira personally, I hope the pregnancy is going well and you're sall looking foirward to xmas. I don't know wghat to do now, so I'm going to have a sleep and wake up first thing tomorrow and figure all this out. Please feel free to message whoever you are, I'd love to hear about who you are and how this whole thing came about.
    I'm off to look at your site now and do the weekly polls. Life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forwards.
    You are aq very very clever person, whoever you are. HYere's the first five captcha's I'vec done on this site.

    I love Keira because she has been partlty responsible for me an incredibly huge ampount of the art and lit I admire. I'd never have read Dr Zhivago or Anna Karenina, and then I'd never haqve read War and Peace. Which only took slightly longer than this puzzle series. (but was on a far more comfortable medium for me) The medium really is the message I guess.
    Ok, gotta sleep now. If KK does happe3n to read thuis, would love a chat, anytime you please, but thank you for being so awesome the last decade anyway, you're a class act. I won''t go into the details now, but just: thank you.

    I'm very tired, and I don't know ho2w my emotionaql pitcgh is right now, I'm so tired I don't even know howv I'm feeling yet. But meeting you (if taqt is indeed whart this is working towards) and getting the chance to be your friend would be ont of the nicest things to contemplate I can imagine. I amv insaqnely curiouws about what it's like being famous almost as much as I just plain like you.
    I am maybe the least famous person in the world, so I got the feeling, I'm hasppy to offer tips

    I'm at your service here, so ask me anything you want, at any length.
    I really should sign that petition actually

    Oh, and know that you can trust me but i won't prey and keep all this to myself, I love the amount of secrets and mystery far too much. Should you wish to exchange secrets, we can

    fornicate saltier:

    drams sensitise
    are circlet
    Ontarian this

    Now to find out how twitter tags work. After sleep

    Thanks one last time. You rock :)
