Keira Knightley returns to filming the Boston Strangler after contracting COVID-19
EXCLUSIVE: Keira Knightley is in great shape as she returns to filming the Boston Strangler after contracting COVID-19 despite vaccination
Keira Knightley was in good shape when she returned to the film set after contracting a breakthrough case of COVID-19.
The 36-year-old actress was spotted Friday while filming the Boston Strangler in Cambridge, Massachusetts, just days after it was revealed she and her family were battling the virus.
Although she admitted to feeling like “junk” during her illness, Keira looked in good health as she plunged into the character of Loretta McLaughlin, the trailblazing reporter who broke the Boston Strangler’s story in the early 1960s.

Keira was dressed in costume when she stepped onto the set, located at Lesley University.
The star wore a classic green coat, belted dress, black heels and a floral scarf that dangled from her neck.
Her short hair was given an elegant twist when it was styled in loose curls that framed her face with a side part.
Sometimes, and in departure from her vintage look, she would bundle up against the wintry weather with a large midnight blue coat that fell to her knees.

Helping hand! A masked employee helped Keira in her thick blue coat
A masked worker helped Keira onto her thick winter coat and the actress couldn’t help but smile a relieved smile as she donned the extra layer of warmth.
Keira described her battle with COVID-19 in an interview with the Sunday Telegraph’s Stella magazine which was published last weekend.
Double-prick Keira is married to Klaxons musician James Righton and they share two daughters, Edie, six, and Delilah, two – whom she revealed was doing better than her.

She said of her asymptomatic husband: “[He is] smug about it – he’s convinced it’s because he’s one of those cold-water swimmers and I’m not.’
The actress admitted that she “felt pretty bad.”
A representative for the actress told People that Keira and her husband had been fully vaccinated and had spent the required 10 days in quarantine.
In October it was announced that people with a double shot still have a one in four chance of getting Covid from an infected family member, according to a study by ‘Professor Lockdown’ Neil Fergusson.
This is the case even if the infected person is himself completely stung, in what’s known as a vaccine breakthrough case, researchers from Imperial College London said.
However, sting people recovered more quickly from the virus, resulting in less severe and shorter symptoms. Being vaccinated also reduces a person’s chance of getting Covid.
brrr! Knightley didn’t let the cold temperatures stop her from doing her job
