It's everyone's favourite Christmas movie. Love Actually is beloved by many! Richard Curtis' declaration that "love is actually all around us" was on the most part, true for many of the characters of the 2003 anthology film.
However, the fate of some characters were a mystery...untill now! We forever wondered what happens to Laura Linney when she tragically gives up Rodrigo Santoro’s 8-pack of Brazilian abs to be with her brother.
And what about the real burning question fans have been dying to be answered is what happened to Emma Thompson and Alan Rickman with the end of the film leaving their fate decidedly uncertain.
Now, thanks to Curtis’s partner, Emma Freud, we have the answers! While attending a screening of Love Actually alongside Richard, Freud did a little in-theater live-tweeting:
At a midnight screening of Love Actually on 6th avenue. 1st time richard has seen the movie in a cinema since the premiere.
Tragic, yes! He ultimately fails though and Harry (Alan Rickman) begins a flirtation with his secretary Mia (Heike Makatsch) even though he’s married to the human personification of perfection, Karen (Emma Thompson)?
Later on in the film, we see Mia wearing the necklace Harry bought her, but we never really find out if Harry truly had an affair. Was it just a necklace? Or sex and a necklace? Or, worst of all, a necklace and love?
@carlotta429 DEFINITELY had an affair. i begged richard just to make it a flirtation, but no. the whole way.
They do stay together, like we saw in the end of the film, but it’s never the same.
So many emotions!!!! Oh, and just in case you weren’t feeling bad enough, remember sweet Sarah (Laura Linney) and her true love Karl (Rodrigo Santoro)? According to Emma, they never got together. They were “doomed.”
All cried out? We'll leave you with the best part of the movie to cheer you up!
And we wish you a...
