The Love Actually Cast will Reunite for a Red Nose Day Short Film


Love Actually is one of the Christmas movies that seems to be on everyone’s favorites list. And now, the cast is reuniting once more.

The Richard Curtis film titled Love Actually stole the hearts of fans everywhere in 2003. It followed a group of people who were loosely tied together and their holiday season. From a writer who hid away to write after his girlfriend cheated on him to a woman in a loveless marriage to even the Prime Minister himself, everyone was connected.

Since the movie premiered, fans have still been talking about it. Every Christmas season, many wait for the day they can watch Love Actually. And good news for fans of the movie: the cast is reuniting once more.

Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day fundraiser, which is always a star filled event, will be home to the short film. It is going to follow the cast of the original movie and what they’re doing in 2017. Unfortunately there will be one missing star. Alan Rickman, who played Harry, passed away last year.

But the short will reunite stars Hugh Grant, Keira Knightley, Colin Firth, Liam Neeson, Bill Nighy, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Martine McCutcheon, Andrew Lincoln, Lucia Moniz, Olivia Olson, Marcus Brigstocke and Rowan Atkinson.

We’ll be missing Emma Thompson, Martin Freeman, and loads of other cast members. But still, this is an amazing thing for fans of the movie. We’ve loved this movie for so long, it’s nice to get to go back and revisit it in a new light. Even if we won’t get the full cast.
