Love Actually Sequel: Cast Reunite To Film More Scenes For Red Nose Day 2017
Love Actually fans won’t have to hold out much longer for the highly anticipated sequel.
But for those who simply can’t wait for Red Nose Day – the charity event which takes place in the UK on Friday, March 27 – more pictures have been released of the cast reuniting and filming new scenes for the ten minute short film.
Fourteen years on from the original release of the film, some of its favourite cast members are coming together to keep the Love Actually stories alive.
Hugh Grant was pictured on set alongside co-star Martine McCutcheon over the weekend, confirming the amazing news that their characters are still very much together all this time later, and even better, they’re married.
Grant is reprising his role of the Prime Minister living at 10 Downing Street, with Martine by his side as his assistant turned lover Natalie.
Red Nose Day director, Emma Freud, has been sharing some of the behind the scenes shots on Twitter and getting everyone beyond excited for the upcoming project.
Freud, who is the wife of Love Actually director Richard Curtis, showcased some of the film’s developments for the ‘Red Nose Actually’ instalment.
In a tweet showing a photo of McCutcheon on set, Emma wrote ‘Our pm is still married. And she’s still lovely’.

The iconic rom-com couple are among several other cast members set to return for the mini sequel.
Liam Neeson and his on-screen son Thomas Brodie-Sangster have also been pictured filming new scenes for the Love Actually reprisal.
Other stars rumoured for the follow-up show are Keira Knightley, Bill Nighy, Colin Firth and Rowan Atkinson.
One of the original cast members, Emma Thompson, has confirmed she will not be participating in the Comic Relief special as she feels it is too soon since the death of co-star Alan Rickman.
Rickman played Thompson’s on-screen husband in the 2003 movie, and sadly lost his battle with cancer in January of last year.
The exciting sequel is set to air in the U.S on NBC on May 25.
