Fans would be happy to know that Hugh Grant’s and Martine McCutcheon’s characters in the Love Actually sequel are married. While many are wondering what happened to Prime Minister David and former junior staff Natalie, reports have now revealed that they got married.
The Love Actually sequel will air on BBC as part of the Red Nose Day on March 24. Don’t expect too much, though, because it will only be 10-minutes long.
What’s Up With David And Natalie In Love Actually Sequel?
Last weekend, director Emma Freud shared some photos of the Love Actually cast on Twitter. Grant and McCutcheon, specifically, were photographed working on the set that looks like 10 Downing Street. So, yes, David is apparently still the British PM.
Remember, at the end of the original Love Actually, we saw the Prime Minister rush to London to Natalie’s house, so he can declare his love for her. This was after he rescued her from the hands of the US president.
Thirteen years after, it looked like the two have made it. Of course, we will assume that tabloids and gossip rags have come after them in the years in between. We also saw Grant’s arm on a sling, so he might have come from an accident?
We’re not sure if the producers behind Love Actually sequel can explain every nitty bitty of what happened in the past 13 years. With only 10 minutes of airtime, many questions will be left unanswered.
Keira Knightley, Andrew Lincoln, Colin Firth, Liam Neeson, Bill Nighy, Marcus Brigstocke and Rowan Atkinson also agreed to join the Love Actually sequel.
Emma Thompson Declined To Reprise Her Role
Director Richard Curtis wrote Emma Thompson to tell her that he couldn’t write anything for her character, Karen, because of Alan Rickman. In the original movie, Karen was married to Harry (Rickman), who cheated on her with his secretary, Mia (Heike Makatsch).
Karen listening to Both Sides Now after seeing the necklace Harry bought for Mia was the most heartbreaking scene in the movie. But as we all know, Rickman died last year. Thompson said she completely understands Curtis’ decision to write her and Rickman off the story for the sequel. It would be too soon since they lost a dear friend in Rickman.
The actress said it seems wrong to write something for Comic Relief, but only to end up mourning the loss of their friend again. It would have been fantastic to join the rest of the Love Actually cast, but it would be heartbreaking for all of them.
