From 2003 her appearances in the Pirates of the Caribbean film series took her to much greater prominence. This was to hide the fact that the handmaiden Padmé (played by Natalie Portman) was actually disclosed as the real Queen Amidala at the end of the film. Knightley was cast in the role due to her close resemblance to Portman; even the two actresses’ mothers had difficulty telling their daughters apart when the girls were in full makeup. She next appeared in Tony Scott’s Domino, an action film based on the life of bounty hunter Domino Harvey. The film has been Knightley’s greatest critical flop to date. in 2006, Knightley was invited to join the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

Additionally, TIME magazine noted in a 2004 feature that Knightley seemed dedicated to developing herself as a serious actress rather than a film star.
