  • What They Took With Them

    Alongside Cate Blanchett (who is UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador), Kit Harrington, Juliet Stevenson, Peter Capaldi, Stanley Tucci, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Douglas Booth, Jesse Eisenberg and Neil Gaiman, Keira has taken part in a reading of a poem written by Jenifer Toksvig highlighting the current refugee crisis, entitled What They Took With Them.

    The video is exclusively released on the Facebook platform. The centre-piece of the UN Refugee Agency’s #WithRefugees campaign is a petition asking governments to ensure all refugee children can go to school, all refugees have a safe place to live and that all refugees can work and contribute to their local community.

    It already has nearly 900,000 signatures and will be delivered to the UN Secretary General and the President of the UN General Assembly on Friday September 16 ahead of the historic UN Summit on Addressing Large Movements of Refugees and Migrants on September 19.

    “It only takes five seconds to mark X”

    Keira Knightley has recorded a 30-second video to urge younger voters to participate in the EU referendum.

    She worked with the pro-EU group We Are Europe, who have recorded similar videos with the actor and model Lily Cole and musicians Eliza Doolittle and Big Narstie.

    It only takes five seconds to practice the perfect awards face. And it takes five seconds to mark an X in a ballot box. Five seconds to stop others fucking with your future.

    The video is neutral, but Knightley has previously added her name to a list of celebrities backing the campaign for Britain to stay in the European Union. Last month, many arts figures, including Chiwetel Ejiofor and Benedict Cumberbatch signed a letter to support the remain campaign.

    From the smallest gallery to the biggest blockbuster, many of us have worked on projects that would never have happened without vital EU funding, or by collaborating across borders,” it read. “Britain is not just stronger in Europe, it is more imaginative and more creative, and our global creative success would be severely weakened by walking away.”

    The poll on 13 June indicates that 53% support a Brexit, while 47% would like to remain in the EU.

    Keira Among U.K. Celebrities Opposing Brexit

    THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – Benedict Cumberbatch, Helena Bonham Carter, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Keira Knightley are among more than 250 personalities from the British entertainment and arts world who have signed a letter urging Brits to vote to remain in the European Union next month.

    In an open letter published in the Guardian, they warn that in the case of a British exit from the EU, a so-called Brexit, the country would become “an outsider shouting from the wings.”

    Filmmakers Danny Boyle and Sam Taylor-Johnson, music star Paloma Faith, designer Vivienne Westwood and author John Le Carre are among the other signatories of the letter, coordinated by “Stronger,” the official pro-EU campaign that prime minister David Cameron is also supporting.

    “Britain is not just stronger in Europe, it is more imaginative and more creative,” the letter also says. “Our global creative success would be severely weakened by walking away.”

    It further argues: “From the Bard [William Shakespeare] to Bowie, British creativity inspires and influences the rest of the world. We believe that being part of the EU bolsters Britain’s leading role on the world stage.”

    The referendum deciding whether the U.K. remains in the EU takes place on June 23. Cameron’s ruling Conservative Party is split on the issue, with former London mayor Boris Johnson being a vocal supporter of a Brexit.
