Sneak peek at Hugh Grant in Love Actually sequel

Richard Curtis Martin Mc Cutcheon and Hugh Grant on set

Filming of the long-awaited (but far-too-short) "Love Actually" charity sequel is now underway, and fans of the 2003 romantic comedy should be delighted: in this universe, Hugh Grant is still running the United Kingdom!

The singer and the Hollywood actor looked thrilled to be back, as they cuddled up to creator Richard Curtis during their stint of shooting in London.

One of the core and perhaps happiest plot lines in Love Actually is the slow blossoming romance between Prime Minister David and Natalie, and no doubt the Love Actually sequel would be feel a little bit less glorious without them. (Vanity Fair speculates the sketch with the cast will be around 10 to 12 minutes.) Freud previously tweeted a behind-the-scenes look at a grown-up Thomas Brodie-Sangster, his dad, played by Liam Neeson, and the lovely Olivia Olson playing Joanna.

It is set to air on Red Nose Day (March 24) in the United Kingdom, later airing in the U.S. Alan played Harry, her husband, in the film. "We still text each other and see each other".

Martine had previously told Loose Women how much she was looking forward to working with Hugh again.




"I really hope they've had a couple of kids and he's still doing silly dancing I'd love him to be in Downing Street", she enthused.

The pair's storyline, one of the most hard-hitting in the film, saw Rickman's Harry cheat on his wife, Karen (Emma) with his secretary. Emma Thompson, who played Karen in the original, won't be returning.

Richard Curtis is also reprising his role as director and screenwriter.

'It seemed like a fun idea this year to do a special sketch based on one of my films, since Red Nose Day is now in both the United Kingdom and America. Who has aged best? We thought and thought but it just seemed wrong but to revisit the wonderful fun characters of Bill Nighy and Hugh Grant and Liam and all of that, that's fantastic but obviously what would he have done? We'll find out 24th March when the short sequel airs on BBC1 as part of Red Nose Day.
