Keira Knightley was terrified about playing heroine ELIZABETH BENNET in the
new film version of JANE AUSTEN'S classic novel PRIDE AND PREJUDICE - because
it's such an important role for her.
Despite starring alongside Hollywood greats like Johnny Depp and
describing the part as "every girl's dream", the 20-year-old British actress
insists she is still daunted.
The BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM star says, "There is a huge pressure taking on a
role like Elizabeth Bennet but it's one of the best roles in literature for
girls, so if you get a chance to play her, you definitely can't say no.
"But equally it is scary because when you read Pride and Prejudice you
sort of feel like you own her. I know I did."
