Edie Knightley is best known as the daughter of Keira Knightley, who is an English actress. Other than this, she has starred in both independent films and big-budget blockbusters, and is particularly noted for her roles in period dramas. Her accolades include two Empire Awards and nominations for two Academy Awards, three British Academy Film Awards, three Golden Globe Awards, one Screen Actors Guild Award and one Laurence Olivier Award.
Knightley was appointed an OBE in the 2018 Birthday Honours for services to drama and charity. Moreover, Keira Knightley may be a beloved actress across the globe, but one of her biggest critics is none other than someone within her innermost circle — her daughter Edie. The actress, 37, also opened up about her 6-year-old daughter and how she has absolutely no interest in watching her famous mother onscreen. Who Is Edie Knightley, Keira Knightley’s Daughter?
Meet Keira Knightley’s Daughter: Edie Knightley
Keira Knightley and her husband, James Righton, welcomed their daughter into the world in 2015. They named her Edie Knightley. Knightley has spoken about how happy she is to be a mother and how it has changed her perspective on life. She told Elle UK in 2016, “It’s funny because when you’re pregnant everyone tells you all these horror stories and you think ‘Oh my god I’m never going to sleep again’, but actually you do… It’s amazing.”
She added, “I think the best thing about it is just how much love you have for this tiny human being that you’ve created. You just want to protect them and see them grow up and be happy.” Knightley and Righton are also parents to a son, born in 2019.

Edie Knightley Is Uninterested In Watching Keira Knightley’s Films
It’s been years since Keira Knightley has graced the big screen, but she hasn’t lost her edge. The actress’ daughter, Edie, 36, may be one of her most vocal critics – and it appears to be mutual. In an interview with PEOPLE about her voiceover part in Charlotte, which is out Friday in theaters, the actress says she has no interest in watching her famous mother onscreen.
It’s no secret that Edie didn’t see any of her screen roles, which range from the Pirates of the Caribbean series to Pride and Prejudice (although she did star in a 2017 adaptation). “She’s completely uninterested,” says Keira Knightley.
“I did a version of The Nutcracker a couple of years ago, and she actually came on set with me to that one when she was 3, so I thought, ‘Oh, this year maybe she wants to watch that?’ ” she continues. “[But] she said ‘No.’ “
“So she is completely uninterested in seeing me in any way at all on television, which is completely fair enough,” Knightley adds. “I think that’s very healthy.”
Knightley is married to James Righton and has a daughter, Edie, with him. The pair have a two-year-old daughter named Delilah. Knightley tells People that she has offered to show her daughter the first Pirates of the Caribbean film since her child’s friends have seen it. Though she informed Edie that she was “old enough” to watch the film, and though she felt it would not be “too frightening,” the Love Actually star claims that Edie remained unmoved.
“I don’t know that she ever will [be interested in my film roles], and that’s fine,” the mother of two says with a laugh. “She’s like, ‘No. No. I’m fine.’ “
Despite Edie’s disinterest in her mother’s films, she and her sister are now completely absorbed in all things Disney+, as Knightley explains.
“Encanto is really big in our house. I mean, massive,” she says. “Even my 2-year-old can sing ‘We Don’t Talk About Bruno,’ so there’s a lot of Encanto.”
Knightley enjoys watching Disney films with her family, especially lately because she feels that the firm’s movies have become a lot more inclusive.
“I love what they’re doing with [these films]. … I cannot say how amazing it is now, the variety of female characters, and how they look and their skin color, and what different cultures they’re coming from,” she says. “I think all of that is so brilliant and so healthy. … I think they’re coming up with some really great stuff.”
