Keira makes quiet entrance to watch dad star in Calendar Girls

Monday August 17, 2009

Keira Knightley might be a world famous cinematic star but she was only too happy to give the spotlight to another actor in her family recently – her dad Will. 

The 24-year-old sneaked in under the radar when she attended a recent performance of Calendar Girls to show support to her father, who is a cast member in the West End production.  

He stars as John Clarke in the stage adaptation of the film alongside a cast of famous ladies prepared to bare all, including Jerry Hall, June Brown and Anita Dobson.

Will, 63, is a steady working actor who has starred in a number of British TV shows in his career such as Rosemary And Thyme and Heartbeat. He also does alot of stage work.

Keira no doubt caught the acting bug from her dad and her mother, Sharman Macdonald – a playwright who wrote the screen play for he daughter's film The Edge Of Love

The Pirates Of The Caribbean star was famously just three-years-old when she demanded her first agent.
