Keira Knightley

Keira Christina Knightley was born on March 26th 1985 in Teddington, London. She is the daughter of actor Will Knightley and actress turned playwright Sharman McDonald.

Her father is English, while her Scottish-born mother is of Scottish and Welsh origin. Brought up immersed in the acting profession from both sides – writing and performing – it is little wonder that the young Keira asked for her own agent at the age of three.
