The Cast Of ‘Love Actually’ To Reunite For Exciting One-Off Sequel
Love Actually fans have every reason to be excited, as the cast of the feel good film are reuniting for a one-off charity sequel.
Hollywood A-lister Liam Neeson and his former co-star and on-screen son Thomas Brodie-Sangster have been spotted on set, confirming rumours that the reunion is true.
It’s been a staggering 14 years since the holiday hit came out, and it’s been making the Christmas season – and every other season – complete ever since.
The first day of filming was underway in London today, with Liam and Thomas being spotted filming scenes alongside the River Thames.
Liam played the role of widower Daniel, who tries to form a close bond with his step-son Sam, played by Thomas.
They re-visited the same bench that their characters’ sat on in the first film, where a younger Sam opens up to his step-dad about being in love.
The exciting sequel is all in aid of Red Nose Day which takes place in the UK each year to raise money for Comic Relief, a British charity that helps those in need across the UK and Africa.
The short film will catch up with some of the movie’s much loved characters and see how their lives have changed all this time on.
The original director of Love Actually, Richard Curtis, has reprised his role for the sequel and was also seen on set on Thursday, February 16.
Other famous faces who are returning for the charity special are Hugh Grant, Keira Knightley, Bill Nighy, Colin Firth, Rowan Atkinson and Martine McCutcheon, with others yet to be confirmed.
The original film, that follows the entwined lives of several characters, was a huge hit in the box office when it was released in 2003, grossing over $8 million during its opening weekend.
It has since regimented itself as a classic in the rom-com genre.
The one-off special, titled Red Nose Day Actually, is set for release on March 24 and will be streamed on BBC One during the live Red Nose Day show.
