Keira Knightley has confessed she won't be going back to the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' franchise but admits she loved her time making the films

Keira Knightley won't return to 'Pirates of the Caribbean'.

The 29-year-old actress played the role of Elizabeth Swann in the first three films in the franchise, 'Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl', 'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest' and Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End', but she's confirmed she has no interest in returning in any future instalments.

Quizzed about the series - which is based on the theme park ride of the same name - Knightley told BBC Radio 2's 'Steve Wright in the Afternoon': "I have no idea, I don't know what they're doing. My time has definitely passed, I loved it, it was an amazing experience but I won't be going back."

Since her and her on-screen love interest Orlando Bloom's departure in 2007, Johnny Depp, Geoffrey Rush and Kevin McNally have returned for 2011's 'Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides' - which also starred Penelope Cruz - and are in the process of making the fifth instalment 'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales', and Knightley thinks the franchise could continue forever.

She added: "I don't know what they're doing, there are so many piratical tales they could tell, it's a fun franchise, it was a lot of fun."

Captain Jack (Depp) and friends are on a mission to obtain the trident of Poseidon before ghoulish Captain Salazar (Bardem) can get his hands on it. A partial return to form for the franchise, with Bardem vigorous as Jack’s nemesis and a winning performance from Scodelario as an astronomer. It’s all too crowded but it…
