Keira Knightley Set to Star in Once Upon a Time… But There’s a Catch!
There are plenty of big-name stars on Once Upon a Time, but none as A-list as Keira Knightley. Don’t get us wrong — we’ve watched all of Ginnifer Goodwin’s movies and have been Emilie de Ravin fans since Roswell, but no one on OUAT has been naked on a billboard or nominated for an Oscar.
However, this famed actress is headed to Once Upon a Time... but she won’t be in Storybrooke or Fairytale Land.
As designated by the ellipses at the end of the title, the British star isn’t going to be on the hit ABC show. Instead, she’ll headline Karl Lagerfeld’s latest Chanel film, playing budding fashion designer Gabrielle Chanel.
WWD reports that Once Upon a Time... will be screened on May 8 in Singapore and features a “witty storylines, salty exchanges — and a slightly embellished version of social and fashion history.”
This fashion film is far from OUAT’s themes, but there are a few common denominators: excellent costumes and Jamie Dornan. Though Keira is engaged to musician James Righton now, she dated the former huntsman for two years from 2003 to 2005.
Though it’s clear that Keira isn’t headed to Once right now, would you like to see her on the show? Sound off below!
