Watch the First Teaser Trailer for the "Love Actually" Sequel
Remember this scene in Love Actually where Kiera Knightley's character Juliet gets a sweet surprise from her husband's best friend who is secretly in love with her?
After 14 years, actor Andrew Lincoln warms our hearts again in the very first teaser for Red Nose Day's Love Actually Comic Relief sequel. Andrew reprises his role as Mark from the original classic—only this time his cards are encouraging us to tune in to Red Nose Day for the Love Actually sequel 14 years in the making.
Keira Knightley (Juliet) and Chiwetel Ejiofor (Peter) will also be back for the special to solve the original movie's lingering love triangle cliffhanger, as well as Hugh Grant (David), Martine McCutcheon (Natalie), Liam Neeson (Daniel), and Colin Firth (Jamie).
Lucia Moniz (Aurelia), Thomas Brodie-Sangster (Sam), Olivia Olson (Joanna), Bill Nighy (Billy), Marcus Brigstocke (Mikey), and Rowan Atkinson (Rufus) will also be featured, but one key cast member who won't be back is Emma Thompson. Thompson—who played Karen—revealed that she chose not to participate in the reunion because it was "too sad [and] too soon" following her on-screen husband Alan Rickman's death.
Written by Curtis himself, Red Nose Day Actually revisits the much-loved characters in the present day, 14 years after the events of the 2003 movie. Production has been underway across the United Kingdom over the last month, with cast members flying in from in from around the world to film their bits with Richard Curtis and director Emma Freud. Andrew Lincoln dashed across the Atlantic from the set of The Walking Dead outside Atlanta to shoot a scene with supermodel Kate Moss last week.
When the Red Nose Day sequel was first announced, Andrew Lincoln said he was hugely excited to be revisiting Mark and his romantic cards—but promised "no spoilers" before premiere day. "It's fun and going to be really great to see everyone again," he beamed. "It's very exciting. It's a very cool thing."
