Love Actually fans will, of course, remember the moment when Mark (Andrew Lincoln) visits Juliet (Keira Knightley) at home on Christmas Eve. And, in spite of the fact that she’s the wife of his best friend, Peter (Chiwetel Ejiofar), the art gallery owner declares his undying love to her via a series of handwritten cards.

All together now: “And my wasted heart will love you, until you look like this [mummified corpse].”



Ah, necrophilia. It’s always so romantic, isn’t it?

While Mark vowed to love Juliet until his dying day, it seems as if his deeply unrequited passion hasn’t put a dampener on his friendship with Peter.

In fact, new photos from the set of Love Actually 2 (as in, the 10-minute sequel they’re filming for Comic Relief) has shown all three points of this infamous love triangle hanging out, laughing and having a grand old time.

Even more intriguing, however, is the fact that Lincoln’s character has been photographed cosying up to none other than Kate Moss.

As in, yes, actual Kate Moss.

Check it out:

While the shots look to be in a studio for a photo shoot rather than on a film set, Comic Relief director Emma Freud tweeted the pictures alongside the #rednosedayactually Twitter hashtag in a definite nod to Moss’ involvement in the project.

It remains to be seen whether Mark’s cue cards worked their magic on the supermodel, or whether this is the start of yet another beautiful (albeit completely platonic) friendship.



Knightley, Ejiofar, Moss, and Lincoln aren’t the only stars on board for the 10-minute special; they will be joined by Martine McCutcheon, Hugh Grant, Bill Nighy, Liam Neeson, Colin Firth, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Lucia Moniz, Olivia Olson, Marcus Brigstocke and Rowan Atkinson.

Sadly, Emma Thompson has decided not to participate in the reunion as it was “too sad and too soon” following the death of her on-screen husband and real-life friend, Alan Rickman.

Speaking about the mini-reunion, Curtis said: “I would never have dreamt of writing a sequel to Love Actually, but I thought it might be fun to do 10 minutes to see what everyone is now up to. Who has aged best? I guess that’s the big question… or is it so obviously Liam?

“We’ve been delighted and grateful that so many of the cast are around and able to take part – and it’ll certainly be a nostalgic moment getting back together and recreating their characters 14 years later.”



The 10-minute Love Actually 2 movie will air during BBC One’s live Red Nose Day in aid of Comic Relief on 24 March.
