It looks like it a pirate’s life almost didn’t happen for Keira Knightley.
Brenton Thwaites, playing Henry Turner in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, recently chatted about Knightley’s big return.
The actor told us, “It’s kind of an honor to play a Turner. I’ve watched all their stuff together since the first movie, and they’ve always had such a great banter and wonderful chemistry with each other.”
Fans were also excited to see that chemistry again when it got announced Knightley would appear in the film.
Images of the actress from the international trailer went viral instantly.
Still, Knightley’s return wasn’t always locked. As Thwaites remembers it, the Knightley scene wasn’t in the original script.
“I believe it was added after. I’m not sure, but I believe it was added after,” Thwaites told HuffPost, saying the part with Elizabeth Swann was shot “14 or 15 months after principal photography.”
