It was one of the first big movies that she ever appeared in, but Keira Knightley hardly remembers anything about starring in “Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace”.
The actress, 35, took on the role of Sabé, Queen Amidala’s double, in the 1999 movie.
In a new interview with ComingSoon.net, Knightley failed to even recall her character’s name in the sci-fi flick.
“Your character survived, whereas Padmé did not,” the interviewer noted.
“Wait a minute. Who did I play? Was I not Padmé?” asked Knightley.
After the interviewer informed the actress that she played Sabé, she replied, “Do you know, I saw the film once. I think I was 12 when I did it and it came out and I saw it the year after. And I’ve never seen it again. So, I played Sabé and she didn’t die? Okay!”
The British star was later asked if she had any intention of reprising her role as Sabé for a new instalment of the franchise.
Knightley laughed, “Reprising the character I can’t even remember the name of? No, there hasn’t.”
