Keira Knightley won't go back to "Pirates of the Caribbean"

July 2nd, 2014

Keira Knightley won't return to 'Pirates of the Caribbean'.

The 29-year-old actress played the role of Elizabeth Swann in the first three films in the franchise, 'Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl', 'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest' and Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End', but she's confirmed she has no interest in returning in any future installments.

Quizzed about the series - which is based on the theme park ride of the same name - Knightley told BBC Radio 2's 'Steve Wright in the Afternoon': ''I have no idea, I don't know what they're doing. My time has definitely passed, I loved it, it was an amazing experience but I won't be going back.''

Since her and her on-screen love interest Orlando Bloom's departure in 2007, Johnny Depp, Geoffrey Rush and Kevin McNally have returned for 2011's 'Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides' - which also starred Penelope Cruz - and are in the process of making the fifth instalment 'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales', and Knightley thinks the franchise could continue forever.

She added: ''I don't know what they're doing, there are so many piratical tales they could tell, it's a fun franchise, it was a lot of fun.''
