We won’t have to wait long until the 10-minute sequel to Love Actually is released, but in the meantime, production have been dropping plenty of hints for fans of the original movie.
In one of the latest reveals from the set, script editor Emma Freud shared a glimpse of actor Andrew Lincoln holding a stack of handwritten cards, referencing the original iconic scene where he professed his love for Keira Knightley’s (married) character.
“It was 13 years ago. There is more facial hair now. But he still loves her …” she captioned the image.
Both Keira and Chiwetel Ejiofor (who played her husband) are back again for the sequel, alongside plenty of other familiar faces including Hugh Grant, Colin Firth, Bill Nighy, Liam Neeson and Rowan Atkinson.
The sequel, which will be called Red Nose Day Actually, was created in aid of the annual Red Nose Day charity appeal held in the UK. It will air on March 24 in the UK and on May 25 in the US.
Red Nose Day Actually comes almost 14 years after the original film’s release. In the lead-up to the big day, Freud has been keeping fans in the loop with plenty of other photos and sneak peeks from set.
Recently, she took to Twitter to give fans their first look at Hugh Grant and Martine McCutcheon reprising their roles, confirming their characters were still married.
Director Richard Curtis, who was behind the original film, is also taking the reins once more for the charity special.
“I would never have dreamt of writing a sequel to Love Actually,” Curtis previously said of the project, “but I thought it might be fun to do 10 minutes to see what everyone is now up to. Who has aged best? I guess that’s the big question — or is it so obviously Liam?
“We’ve been delighted and grateful that so many of the cast are around and able to take part — and it’ll certainly be a nostalgic moment getting back together and recreating their characters 14 years later. We hope to make something that’ll be fun and which we hope will help bring lots of viewers and cash to the Red Nose Day shows.”
