Keira Knightley worked for free in her latest art film, ”Maze”, by the painter turned filmmaker Stuart Pearson Wright.
“I loved the idea of doing something that was purely creative, weird and wonderful and not a commercial venture,” The Mirror quoted Keira as telling The Independent.
“Ideas were emailed and then developed at Stuart’’s studio over cupcakes and tea and under the skeleton of his dog and a film piece was decided on: a collision of our worlds,” she revealed.
In the film, the Oscar-nominated stunner runs around a maze in a corset, ruff and Elizabethan wig and scrambles through a hedge in a bid to reach her lover.
The film was shot in a day for 15,000 euros and Keira worked for free, using a local bed and breakfast as her dressing room.
“Part of the reason for me wanting to use an actress like Keira is her association with period dramas,” Stuart said.
