Knightley Dazzles At Archery

Hollywood actress KEIRA KNIGHTLEY has a natural talent for archery - should her burgeoning acting career end.

The British star, 19, underwent severe archery training in preparation for her role as warrior queen GUINEVERE in summer epic KING ARTHUR - and found the sport easy until shooting began.

Knightley explains, "It's actually been brilliant... the only problem was that I was great in training - then it was no problem.

"But when we actually came to film, it was the only thing that I got really injured on.

"The string on the bow caught me and I had this huge bruise while we were filming, but I was rather proud of it, so it was fine.

"It was painful, but good fun."
