It seems that actress Keira Knightley didn’t find her character in the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy challenging enough.

The British beauty is reportedly "relieved" to be undertaking her new role in the latest movie Atonement, because it's more of a challenge than her part in the Pirates.

The Pride and Prejudice actress stars along with James McAvoy as doomed lovers in the movie, which is based on the Ian McEwan novel.

And Knightley is thankful for the new role, as it has more intensity and depth than that of her Pirates character, Elizabeth Swann.

“This is such a relief. Not that I don't enjoy all that Pirates stuff, but it's not about my character - it's about Johnny's (Depp's) character. It's not focusing on emotional turmoil. It's been great just to get my brain engaged,” Contactmusic quoted her, as saying.
