Keira Knightley is The Duchess

Keira Knightley is The Duchess

Keira Knightley sports a massive coiffure as she rides in an ornate carriage (complete with footmen) on the set of her upcoming film The Duchess.

Keira, 22, plays the scandalous 18th century aristocrat Georgiana Cavendish, Duchess of Devonshire. The film is adapted from Amanda Foreman’s biography of the duchess.

Here, the crew has transformed the London Maritime Museum in Greenwich into an 18th century-looking street.

The Duchess is scheduled for release in 2008. The film also stars Ralph Fiennes as William Cavendish the 5th Duke of Devonshire and Dominic Cooper (Dakin in History Boys) as Charles Grey the 2nd Earl Grey.

    Thought she was trying to break away form the type casting of period pieces or corset pieces as she calls them. I guess when the money comes knocking even she will go for the whale bone.

    #4, she should stay in period films, because let’s face it that’s where she’s best suited. Pride And Prejudice, Atonement etc…

    Well, first off LEARN HOW TO SPELL HER NAME

    And secondly, how about posting a picture of yourself and see if you match Keira’s unique beauty?

    YUCK! We’re on a Keira Knightley article, a person who has much more class than Vanessa Slutgens will ever have. Her name should not even appear on this thread.

    Jared that is not the National Maritime Musuem (that’s located across the road) it’s the Old Royal Naval College which is now part of University of Greenwich. The exact location was right by the painted hall building. I should know as we were there when they were setting up for the filming on Saturday. I didn’t see Keira as I was too busy taking my son to his music lesson nearby.

    Period is where actresses actually get to act. Its where the best work is. I dont see people having a pop at Cameron Diaz for only doing contemporary films.

    Cant stand her. A Portman clone and not even pretty.
    Her tits are like the guys same with Rachel Mcadams.

    Why is it her mouth always open? Does she have difficulties to breath trough her nose? May be she thinks it is sexy, but actually she looks retarded.

    DAVID Says:

    I’m not gonna lie, she does look pretty great in period piece garment.

    Not too sure about the wild hair though. :P
