EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: Keira Knightley talks Never Let Me Go

Keira Knightley reveals all on her feisty new role in Never Let Me Go and playing opposite Andrew Garfield and Carey Mulligan

With Keira Knightley, Andrew Garfield and Carey Mulligan cast as the leads, Never Let Me Go is brimming with the hottest in British talent right now, so add to that a script adapted from Kazuo Ishiguro's critically-acclaimed novel, and you've got a sure-fire hit.

Find out what Keira had to say about tapping into her sinister side in the dark yet touching Brit-film, plus being re-united with Pride and Prejudice co-star Carey Mulligan, and how she bonded with Andrew Garfield over Scrabble...

What attracted you to your part in Never Let Me Go?

I was reading a lot of stuff and I didn’t necessarily like the leads and I thought that the supporting roles were often very interesting. I read this script and thought: I’d like to play this role because I find it really interesting and I’d like to know what makes this person tick.

What was it like playing your character Ruth?

She’s manipulative, she does horrendous things, I don’t like her, I don’t think I’d like her if I met her and yet I want to understand this. I think one of the wonderful things about being an actress is trying to get into the head of somebody else's motives. I thought it would be an interesting journey to go on with her.
