Bill Nighy talks about role in WW II drama 'Their Finest,' co-starring Gemma Arterton, and reprising his role as aging rocker Billy Mack for Red Nose Day
Depending on whom you ask, Richard Curtis’ 2003 Love Actually is either the sweetest and funniest romantic comedy of the past 15 years, or the most awfully saccharine and contrived mushfest ever. Regardless of which side you’re on, that debate is bound to heat up again as Curtis reunites much of the cast for a short TV-only follow-up set to debut later this month on Red Nose Day — a telethon organized by Comic Relief, which Curtis founded, to help raise money for poor and disadvantaged people around the globe — which airs March 24 on BBC One in the U.K., and then May 25 on NBC in the U.S. For those who just can’t wait to see what’s become of their favorite characters, Curtis’ wife, script editor, and producer Emma Freud, has now given the world a glimpse at two of its stars back on set.
LONDON (Reuters) — Emma Thompson has said she is not taking part in a short Love Actually sequel for Britain’s Comic Relief charity appeal because it is “too soon” to reprise her role in the romantic comedy after the death last year of co-star Alan Rickman.
Love Actually has officially become a rom-com for the ages, but some have been forced to take a second look at a now iconic scene involving Andrew Lincoln and Keira Knightley. There has been a recent debate surrounding Lincoln’s character with some claiming that he exhibits stalker tendencies. TheWrap spoke with Lincoln ahead of the midseason premiere of The Walking Dead and got his thoughts on the controversy.
