|Behind the scenes|
Not much is known of Estrella's early life, only that she became a maid. She would most notably work in the governor's household in the town of Port Royal. Estrella, along with her fellow maid, presented Elizabeth Swann with a dress and corset, apparently the latest fashion in London. The tightness of this corset later caused Elizabeth to faint and tumble off the battlements of Fort Charles.
Later that evening Estrella placed a bed-warmer into Elizabeth's bed and discussed with her the events of that day—during which Elizabeth had been rescued and subsequently held hostage by Jack Sparrow—finally noting suggestively Elizabeth's affection for the young blacksmith apprentice Will Turner, rather than the newly-promoted Commodore James Norrington.
When the mansion was besieged by Hector Barbossa's crew, Estrella hid upstairs until Elizabeth entered. Estrella believed that the crew of the Black Pearl had come to kidnap her, likely for ransom, as she warned Elizabeth "you're the governor's daughter". Following Elizabeth's advice, Estrella later fled the mansion, noticing the butler's corpse on the way out.
