With such varied films as Pride & Prejudice (which earned her an Oscar nom) and Pirates of the Caribbean (which earned huge boxoffice), Keira Knightley nonetheless is extremely passionate about her current project, The Imitation Game. “This is a story that speaks to everyone,” she says of the Morten Tyldum-directed film about mathematician Alan Turing and the World War II code breakers of Bletchley Park. “When you understand what Turing and others did and who they were, this truly crosses national boundaries.” Knightley just received Screen Actors Guild and Golden Globe supporting actress noms, putting her in major Oscar contention for her portrayal of real-life cryptanalyst Joan Clarke, a friend and confidant of Turing’s. The role marks a deliberate new direction for the actress.
Your performance in The Imitation Game seems quite different from a lot of your work of years and films past.
I went through a period of playing very dark and neurotic characters, which I really enjoyed. And that was a very conscious decision on my part because that’s what I was really interested in. But I was interested in other types of roles as well. This chapter started with Begin Again and, for me, it was all about playing people who were much more relaxed—people who had a positivity because I felt I’d done five years of work where that hadn’t been the kind of main thing with (my) characters. I was interested in finding and playing with those sorts of characters and definitely Joan Clarke was one of them.
