Washington (ANI): Actress Keira Knightley has revealed that she played scenes in the Pirates of the Caribbean series without a script. In an interview appearing in the October issue of Empire Magazine, the actress said that though she enjoyed playing the role of Elizabeth Swann in the film series, she found it really hard to work without a script.
Knightley, who opened the 64th Venice Film Festival with the premiere of her latest film Atonement, said that she will not repeat the mistake of going script-less in her future projects. “I find it very difficult to work without a script, which is what that was. I loved doing the stunts. But it"s really difficult working without a script and I don"t feel like I could do that process again," Contactmusic quoted her, as telling the mag.
The 22-year-old added that because of the script not being here, she originally had to play a scene with martial arts star Chow Yun Fat slightly differently. "That scene with Chow Yun-Fat where he dies, I didn"t know what the scene was about. I thought he had kidnapped me and that I was completely terrified of him," she said. "After four set-ups the director was like, 'Why are you playing it like that?' And I was like, 'Well, he"s kidnapped me and I don"t want to be here. I"m terrified.' And he was like, 'What? You haven"t been kidnapped!'" she added.
