Keira Knightly has made several period dramas:

Anna Karenina (2012)

The Duchess (2008)

Colette (2018)

Anna Karenina,' From Joe Wright, With Keira Knightley - The New York Times   The Duchess movie review & film summary (2008) | Roger Ebert  Keira Knightley excels as the ghostwriter who said 'time's up' in 'Colette'  | Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

And I would add The Imitation Game (2014) and The Aftermath (2019) to Keira Knightley's list. I think World War II counts as a period piece these days.
