Keira Knightley and Andrew Lincoln's scene in Love Actually where he declares his love for her while using signs is one of the rom com's most iconic moments, and now you can be one of the first to find out just what happened to their characters in the Red Nose Day sequel! Emma Freud, the film's script editor, has revealed an upcoming competition which will give fans of the iconic rom-com a chance to watch Keira and Andrew film together for the Comic Relief special.
Emma tweeted: "Our final evening of filming is on March 7th with Andrew Lincoln, Keira Knightley and 2 other amazing names. We'd LOVE you to come and be in our gang that night. On set, with the cast, watching the filming, eating bacon sandwiches (compulsory), having your photo taken by the set-photographer with the cast, getting a signed script, generally hanging out." So how can you get involved? Plan a Love Actually-themed fundraising page and set up a page on the Red Nose Day website, then tweet Emma the link! She will then choose the lucky winners who will be the first to watch the new scene.
Rowan Atkinson, Liam Neeson and Thomas Brodie-Sangster have already filmed their parts of the upcoming sequel, while Emma Thompson has confirmed that she will not be taking part, revealing that it would be "too soon" following the death of her friend and onscreen husband in Love, Actually, Alan Rickman. She said: "Richard [Curtis] wrote to me and said, 'Darling we can't write anything for you because of Alan,' and I said, 'No of course, it would be sad, too sad. It's too soon. It's absolutely right because it's supposed to be for Comic Relief but there isn't much comic relief in the loss of our dear friend really, only just over a year ago."
