A-LIST actor Keira Knightley plans to make changes to her Canonbury home, including a measure that will increase security.
Her husband James Righton, formerly of rock band The Klaxons, has submitted papers to the Town Hall showing the couple want to make alterations to the inside and outside of their £3.9m home.
Atonement star Ms Knightley was the victim of a stalking campaign by a fan repeatedly turning up outside her home. Mark Revill admitted stalking at Highbury Corner at the end of last year.
Ms Knightley said in a victim impact statement read in court that it caused her “a lot of distress and panic”.
Alterations to a kitchen extension will “improve the daylight to the kitchen and improve security”, the papers state.
Islington Council officers are expected to approve the plans after no formal objections were made by neighbours.
