On Thursday night, stars gathered to support NBC’s Red Nose Day Special, which is a campaign to end child poverty. While it was a celeb-filled night, the highlight was the reunion of the cast of Four Weddings and a Funeral or a mini-sequel that showed what the characters are up to 25 years later.
Actresses Lily James and Alicia Vikander joined returning cast members Hugh Grant, Andie McDowell, Kristin Scott Thomas and Rowan Atkinson. Grammy-winning singer Sam Smith even made a brief cameo.
The sequel was called One Red Nose Day and a Wedding. Richard Curtis, the original screenwriter of the film penned the script with one of the co-founders of Red Nose Day.
The sketch got a modern spin as the star-studded cast gathered for the wedding of Alicia Vikander to Lily James who played Hugh Grant’s daughter.
"Husband and wife used to be the only people to know the grace of God, but now often it's wife and wife as is the case to them," Atkinson's Father Gerald stated.
Before Grant walked James down the aisle, he jokingly let her know he always has an escape plan up his sleeve.
“Well, it's not too late to run, you know,” Grant said. “This is a family tradition, I could just order you an Uber.”
The sequel also made sure to reflect the cause. When James met Vikander at the end of the aisle, she joked “Very red lip.” Vikander smiled and said “It’s Red Nose Day.”
Fans have been anticipating the reunion on Twitter ever since it was announced in 2018 and were even more excited after it finally aired.

Before the mini-sequel was over, Grant teased fans by asking McDowell why he didn’t propose to her.
“Maybe I should have asked you to marry me,” Grant said. Why didn't I?” McDowell quipped back “I think it was raining. We both just wanted to get back inside.”
