Keira Knightley College:
Keira Christina Knightley, born March 26th, 1985 in Teddington, Middlesex, England, UK. She is the daughter of actor Will Knightley and playwright Sharman Macdonald. After requesting an agent at the age of three, her parents allowed her to work on productions in her summer holidays. Early on it became clear that Keira had severe difficulties in reading and writing. If you needed more proof of her ability to persevere through tough situations, this would be one. Her education being important to her, she worked hard to overcome this issue, which she had by the time she reached her teen years. Ms. Knightley attended Stanley Junior School and went on to Esher college studying Classics, English Literature and Political History. A year later she had a chance encounter with producer Andy Harries at the London premiere of Bridget Jones's Diary, which forced Keira to leave her studies and pursue acting full-time.
