It looks like absence really does make the heart grow fonder, as after a 13 year hiatus, Andrew Lincoln’s Mark is still in love with Keira Knightley’s Juliet – and he’s bringing back those famous cue cards.
Emma Freud’s tweet from behind the scenes of the 10-minute Love Actually sequel, Red Nose Day Actually, shows Mark returning to Juliet’s doorstep (or maybe he never left, in which case he must be very cold) and we can see that his first card features the same opening gambit as in the original film – “Tell him it’s carol singers”.
But will Mark’s dream finally be realised, will he and Juliet end up together? Probably not, given the hints that Juliet is still happily hitched to Chiwetel Ejiofor’s Peter.
