These 'Love Actually' Characters Won't Be in the Reunion Special

Everyone is so excited about the Love Actually reunion that is being filmed to benefit the Red Nose Day charity event, but sadly some of the beloved characters will not be featured in the special.

Alan Rickman sadly passed away over a year ago and a tribute to the late actor has not been planned, director Richard Curtis reportedly has said.

“You know, dealing with Alan is very complicated, so not really,” Richard told the Press Association (via Huffington Post) about including a tribute.

“We’re not doing everyone. We’re doing about two thirds of people,” he added. “[Emma Thompson] isn’t in it. She just can’t do it.”

Emma and Alan played a married couple whose marriage was strained by the end of the film.

Another character we won’t be seeing is Laura Linney‘s Sarah.

You can look forward to seeing Hugh Grant, Keira Knightley, Colin Firth, Bill Nighy, Liam Neeson, Andrew Lincoln, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Rowan Atkinson, and more in the special though!

'Love Actually' Cast Reuniting for Short Film!

The cast of 2003′s smash hit film Love Actually is doing a reunion for Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day Special airing on NBC this coming May!

Stars Hugh Grant, Martine McCutcheon, Keira Knightley, Andrew Lincoln, Colin Firth, Lucia Moniz, Liam Neeson, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Olivia Olson, Bill Nighy, Marcus Brigstocke and Rowan Atkinson will get together for a short film, “Red Nose Day Actually,” which will air on May 25 on NBC. The short film will check in on where your favorite Love Actually characters are today.

“Over the years I’ve enjoyed doing Red Nose Day specials of TV things I’ve worked on – ‘Blackadder’, ‘The Vicar of Dibley’ and ‘Mr Bean.’ It seemed like a fun idea this year to do a special sketch based one of my films, since Red Nose Day is now in both the UK and America. 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. We hope to make something that’ll be fun – very much in the spirit of the original film and of Red Nose Day – and which we hope will help bring lots of viewers and cash to the Red Nose Day shows,” writer/director Richard Curtis said in a statement.
