London, (ANI): Despite facing harsh criticism after she took to the stage, British actress Keira Knightley is even more determined to stick to theatre. Knightley, 24, who made her West End debut in Martin Cimp"s version of Molière"s comedy 'The Misanthrope" last year, admitted being terrified and the critics were not kind.
The actress, who is up for the Best Supporting Actress gong, spoke to Day & Night at the Laurence Olivier Theatre Awards lunch at the Haymarket Hotel in London, about her love for theatre. “I really enjoy doing stage stuff and would definitely do more theatre," the Daily Express quoted her as saying. “It"s so different to films as you really get into the character. In films, once you have finished shooting a scene it"s done but with theatre you"re always continuing. “You get to know the characters in a way that you don"t as much in films. And she adds that the audience have been positive about her performance.
“The audience"s mood is different every night and that is fascinating as, along with my mood, it gives the whole performance a different feeling each night. “There haven"t been any negative reactions from the audience though," she added.
