Actress Keira Knightley shines in her new movie "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit" as she has produced a performance that will only help enhance her image as a leading actress and one of Hollywood's most bankable talents. One thing that Keira Knightley has mastered is that she has avoided become burnt out by limiting the number of movie projects that she works on in one year. She has this innate confidence in her ability such that she is unafraid to say no to a project and it is obvious that when she takes on a project she comes to it unencumbered.
Many actresses who similar to Keira Knightley began their acting careers on the big screen at a very young age encounter fatigue and burn out to the point where they take an extended break from acting and some never come back. This situation has not occurred to Keira Knightley and her career has prospered as a result.
In addition to the Jack Ryan: Shadow recruit movie for which she is receiving rave reviews both on her appearance at the red carpet and for her performance she will have two other movies released in 2014, "Laggies" and "The Imitation Game". She has one project in development but its unlikely that filming for it will begin until later in the year.
Keira Knightley is one of the few actresses who understands that one is judged more on the quality of their work than on the quantity. If an actress is part of several films in one year but does not provide one noteworthy performance it is likely her success will be short-lived. In contrast, if an actress focuses on the craft and providing superior quality performances the directors and producers will come looking for that actress with the knowledge that she can dominate the screen in a manner that will keep a viewers attached to the screen as if they were being held by a magnet.
What distinguishes Keira Knightley from many of her counterparts is that she is more known for exceptional performances and less for the number of films that she has been a part of and that is why she is one of the highest paid actresses in Hollywood.
