1993 with 2001: Beginnings on television and with the cinemaKnightley on television begins its career at the seven years age, on Royal Celebration (1993) and the series The Bill (1995). It appears in several other Téléfilm S in years 1990 before being selected for the role of Sabé, the lure of Padmé Amidala, in the spectacular Star Wars: episode I - The phantom Threat . It was selected for the role due to its resemblance to Natalie Portman, which plays Padmé; during the turning of film their mothers were not able any more to distinguish them when they were both made up. Its first main role follows in 2001, when she plays off the girl of Robin of Wood in the telefilm Princess Thieves . It is at that time that one also sees it in the thriller The Hole .

Knightley has a role in the romantic comedy Love Actually , which left in November 2003, but its role, though charismatic, will be rather forgotten due to a high large distribution in universally recognized names (Hugh Grant, Emma Thompson, Liam Neeson, Colin Firth…). Its following film, the King Arthur , left in July 2004 with criticisms negative, having only 31% of favorable opinions on Rotten Tomatoes . Some liked the news Guenièvre, but the representation of Knightley was forgotten a little, much concentrating on its appearance. The same month, readers of Hello! elects it star the most promising teenager. In 2004, the magazine Time note that Knightley seems given with becoming a serious actress and not a star.
2005 with today: Between criticisms and business successesThe year 2005 will see the exit of three films.

It will be often said that Knightley is only one pretty face , which led it to say in an interview for IT I all the time have the impression that I have very to prove. Then the exit comes from Orgueil and prejudged , with a score of 85%. In the role of Elizabeth Simpleton, it will have best criticisms of its career; Variety will say that it is with the height other actors with more experiment, of which Brenda Blethyn, Donald Sutherland and Judi Dench and compares it with the young person Audrey Hepburn. The film will gain more than 100 million dollars and Knightley will have two nominations for the price of better actress, for a Golden Globe and another for the Oscar. One foot-note that the BAFTAs are unaware of it, which will be worth to them criticisms on behalf of the producer of film, Tim Bevan. The two prices will be given to Reese Witherspoon.
