Keira Knightley to voice Tinker Bell

March 10th, 2011

Keira Knightley will voice fairy Tinker Bell in a new version of 'Neverland'.

The 'Never Let Me Go' actress will voice her character alongside Anna Friel, Rhys Ifans, Bob Hoskins and Charles Dance in the four-hour miniseries, which will be screened on US TV channel Syfy.

The story tells the tale of Peter Pan - played by Charlie Rowe - who joins a group of young pick-pocketers on a quest to find a magical orb which will take them to another world named Neverland.

Keira's Tinker Bell leads a colony of tree spirits in the mysterious land, which houses a number of famous people.

She will record her voice role in the spring and the series will be shown on TV in December.

Oscar-nominated Keira has seen her career go quiet in recent years since starring in 2008's 'The Duchess'.

In 2010 she took a leading role in much maligned 'London Boulevard' with Colin Farrell and is expected to be seen in cinemas later this year in 'A Dangerous Method', about the intense relationship between Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung.
