Pride & Prejudice, Pirates of the Caribbean Trilogy

Keira Knightley (March 26, 1985–) played Queen Amidala's (Natalie Portman) handmaiden Sabé in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace at the age of twelve during August 1997 at Leavesden Film Studio's, England. The completed film was released two years later in the Summer of 1999 when Knightley was 14 years old. Keira Knightley is credited in the films end credits as Kiera Knightley, the actress's birth-name.

Knightley was chosen to play Queen Amidala's decoy in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace because of her close resemblance to Natalie Portman, who played the Queen. Many people (including their mothers) had trouble telling them apart during the filming of The Phantom Menace.

Knightley's voice was dubbed-over with Natalie Portman's voice after filming, Natalie recorded both the Amidala and Sabé voices in post-production.

She was interviewed for the article Appearing Knightley (and the Women of Star Wars), published in Star Wars Insider #75 (2005)

Knightley was nominated for an Academy Award in 2005 for her role in Pride and Prejudice. She is well known for her role as Elizabeth Swann in the Pirates of the Caribbean movies.
