Keira Thrilled By Blood And Mud
British actress KEIRA KNIGHTLEY loved the fake blood and gore in the climax of new medieval action adventure KING ARTHUR because it was like playing as a kid.
Whereas many young stars would shy away from such a bloody role, coloured head to toe in warrior blue, Knightley relished it.
She says, "It was a bit like being an 11-year-old in the playground. You got dirty, you've got all these costumes and play knives.
"I suppose I did love it; maybe a bit too much, but nobody got hurt, so it was fine."05/07/2004 09:02
