Keira Knightley Goes Full Pixie to Voice Tinker Bell

On Syfy's upcoming “Peter Pan” prequel “Neverland,” that is

With those elfin features and popular hairdo, Keira Knightley has often been called a pixie.

That tag will only become more fitting now that the Oscar-nominated actress has signed on to provide the voice of the magical faerie Tinker Bell in "Neverland," Syfy's upcoming four-hour miniseries.

Written and directed by Nick Willing, who also helmed the network's 2009 miniseries "Alice" (based on "Alice in Wonderland"), "Neverland" will be a live-action prequel to J.M. Barrie's "Peter Pan."

Knightley joins previously announced cast members Rhys Ifans, Anna Friel and Bob Hoskins — a solid list of names that indicates that when Syfy wishes upon a star, it actually gets them.

The miniseries will air in December.
