These Love Actually Sequel Photos Reveal 3 Major Reunions!
Christmas came really early last month when news broke that a mini Love Actually reunion is happening. The classic holiday movie, which has spawned a loyal and dedicated fan base (and some haters) since its 2003 release, is getting a 10-minute-long short film in honor of Comic Relief's Red Nose Day telethon. The short will check in with the film's beloved characters 14 years after the events of the first movie.
In February, a few of the film's original cast members, Liam Neeson (Daniel), Thomas Brodie-Sangster (Sam), and Olivia Olson (Joanna), were spotting filming a few scenes in London. If you need a small refresher, Neeson played a man who recently lost his wife and was suddenly the sole caretaker of her young son, Sam. While he initially thought Sam's withdrawn behavior was due to his mother's death, it was actually mostly because he was hopelessly in love with his American classmate Joanna. The new set photos hint at a ton of possible things: Did Sam and Joanna end up together? Are Sam and Daniel still as close as ever?
Then in early March, the director of Red Nose Day, Emma Freud, shared photos of another amazing reunion on Twitter. In the photos, Prime Minister David (Hugh Grant) is shown to still be with Natalie (Martine McCutcheon). Emma also revealed in one tweet that the two are actually married! She then shared photos of Mark (Andrew Lincoln) holding his infamous notecards, and Juliet (Keira Knightley) and Peter (Chiwetel Ejiofor) relaxing in their home. See all the reunion pics below before the special airs on NBC on May 25.
