Keira Knightley


The 'Never Let Me Go' actress has gone back to school with 'Mad Men' beauty Elisabeth Moss in preparation for their roles as teachers in 'The Children's Hour', admitting the experience was terrifying.

Keira Knightley went back to school to teach a drama class in preparation for her role in West End play "The Children's Hour". Knightley and and her co-star, "Mad Men"'s Elisabeth Moss, play teachers in the drama so they spent a day at Brentwood School in Essex, England, where they stepped in front of a class of 10 drama students.

The "Pirates of the Caribbean" actress admits it was "terrifying" to be in charge of pupils, but she gained a new found respect for school staff. She says, "They were so kind. I got them to do a scene from the play - basically I did a drama class. It left me with a great respect for teachers. It gives you an insight into how tired you are after just an hour."

A school spokesperson adds, "They explained to the girls that they really wanted to get inside a teacher's head. They adopted different styles and wanted to see pupils' responses."

The actresses play teachers at a boarding school in the play, which is showing at the Comedy Theater in London.
