Knightley certainly knows how to make work fun
Keira Knightley has revealed that she had “a lot of fun” learning an American accent for Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit and found it helpful being surrounded by an American cast. The 28-year-old actress, who was born and raised in London, plays male lead Jack Ryan’s fiance Cathy Muller in the forthcoming film and found learning the voice for her character was easier since she was surrounded by other American stars, including A-Listers Chris Pine and Kevin Costner. Speaking at the European premiere of Jack Ryan in London’s Leicester Square, she told BANG Showbiz that she got a dialogue coach, and was lucky being surrounded by a lot of American actors, which helps. Producer, Lorenzo di Bonaventura, complemented her ‘‘impeccable accent’’ insisting Americans will want to be able to talk like Knightley after watching the film.
Keira Knightley has revealed that she couldn’t be a CIA agent like her on-screen lover in terrible at keeping secrets.

Speaking at the European premiere of Jack Ryan in London’s Leicester Square, she told BANG Showbiz that she’s terrible at keeping secrets, and it would come straight out of her mouth, so she would be an awful CIA agent.
