Love Actually Sequel: Hit Movie Cast Reunites For Charity

Love Actually reunion

It’s not quite the full sequel that fans of the 2003 smash hit demanded, but it’s the next best thing.

Filming is already underway in London for the Love Actually mini-sequel!

Much of the big-name cast has reunited to raise money for the UK charity Comic Relief.

Liam Neeson, now 64, has already been photographed while filming fresh scenes with his onscreen stepson Daniel, played by Thomas Brodie-Sangster, now 26.

For those few unfamiliar with the rom-com classic, Love Actually follows the lives of eight very different couples in dealing with their love lives in various loosely interrelated tales all set during a frantic month before Christmas in London.

It has a star-studded cast list with the likes of Keira Knightley, Andrew Lincoln, Emma Thompson, Bill Nighy, January Jones, Colin Firth, Kris Marshall and the late Alan Rickman all involved.

In addition to Liam and Thomas, mini-sequel will also bring back Colin Firth, Hugh Grant, Rowan Atkinson, Martine McCutcheon, Keira Knightley, Andrew Lincoln, Lucia Moniz, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Bill Nighy, Marcus Brigstocke and Olivia Olson.

British broadcaster Emma Freud, who announced the cast was reuniting via Twitter, also shared some behind-the-scenes production pics. “So this just happened. #rednosedayactually day 1 of filming,” she tweeted. “Might have cried a tiny bit.”

Another candid shot featured Liam and Thomas Brodie-Sangster flashing smiles on set.

“I would never have dreamt of writing a sequel to Love Actually, but I thought it might be fun to do 10 minutes to see what everyone is now up to,” writes director Richard Curtis in an article posted on the fundraiser’s website. “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,” he continued.

“We hope to make something that’ll be fun — very much in the spirit of the original film and of Red Nose Day – and which we hope will help bring lots of viewers and cash to the Red Nose Day shows.”
