Laura Linney will return for US Love Actually sequel
Actor Laura Linney (right) will reprise her role as unlucky-in-love Sarah when the Love Actually sequel hits US television screens on Red Nose Day in May. Linney didn’t feature in the 10-minute short when it debuted as part of Britain’s Comic Relief Red Nose Day telethon, but the storyline for the US version, which will air on May 25, will be completely different. The actor’s scene will be filmed in April, according to Entertainment Weekly.
“I have no idea what I’m doing yet. Not a clue,” Linney says. In the original 2003 film, Sarah was forced to give up her romance with her office crush, played by Rodrigo Santoro, to care for her mentally ill brother.
Friday’s Love Actually sequel debut in the UK brought back characters played by Hugh Grant, Bill Nighy, Liam Neeson, Rowan Atkinson, and Martine McCutcheon, among others.
