Bad news for Keira Knightley's fans. The beautiful actress had to cancel one of her Broadway shows, because of an injury. So, the famous actress was actually in the situation of having to cancel her appearance on Therese Raquin play, but fans should rest assured that it was just a minor injury.

Keira was supposed to be on stage on Wednesday, October 7. However, the Roundabout Theatre Company announced that her appearance was canceled. Because the talented movie star suffered just a minor injury, Keira is expected to return on the stage for her Thursday's show. The nature of the injury was not revealed.

The cancelation of her performance is not believed to be linked in any way with the fact that Keira's prior appearance was interrupted by a male fan. Keira's Broadway debut was disrupted by a man who yelled at the actress and then asked if she would marry him. Both Keira and her co-star Gabriel Ebert were really professional, despite the incident, continuing their performance as if nothing happened.

Well, the whole scene did not stop there. The man insisted and actually threw a bouquet of flowers from under his seat, at the famous actress. "Five seconds! You have five seconds! All it takes is five seconds," the man shouted. It seems that he was waiting for an answer to his wedding proposal. Well, the actress responded nothing, while her co-star threw the flowers from the stage, drawing a round of applause from the audience.

It has later been revealed that the man was escorted out by the security and was actually taken to the hospital for an evaluation. The man was not arrested or charged in relation to the claims. However, sources claimed that Keira filed an official harassment complaint with the New York Police Department in the attempt to prevent further issues from happening. Extra security will be added to the theater following the incident.

Keira made her Broadway debut with this new play only a couple of days ago and the star was highly appreciated, as expected.
