THEATER DISTRICT — Talk about a stage fright.
A Keira Knightley mega-fan interrupted her Broadway debut on Oct. 1, screaming that he wanted to marry her and that they would be together in heaven, police said.
It was Knightley's opening performance of "Thérèse Raquin" at the Roundabout Theater, located 254 W. 54th St., about 8:10 p.m., just ten minutes into the play, the man started screaming at the actor and threw a bouquet of flowers at towards her, police said.
The Texas man was eventually escorted out of the theater, according to reports, and is not being named because he was not arrested, police said.
The British actress, who's known for her roles in "Pirates of the Caribbean" and "Pride and Prejudice" among others, is starring in the adaptation of the novel by French author Émile Zola.
In the play, Thérèse is trapped in an unhappy marriage to her first cousin and surrounded by overbearing family members, when she enters into a passionate affair with her husband's friend.
A spokeswoman for the Roundabout Theater said that they had upped security since the incident on Thursday.
"Roundabout takes the safety of their actors and audiences very seriously," she said.
