Playing 'Love Actually' Cast Recreates Iconic Scene in Epic Trailer for 'Red Nose Day' Reunion Special

14 years after Love Actually cemented it's place in movie history as one of the best romantic comedies of all time, a majority of the cast reunited for NBC's Red Nose Day!

The trailer promoting their special reunion -- titled Red Nose Day Actually -- was released on Wednesday and paid homage to one of the film's most iconic scenes, in which Andrew Lincoln's Mark silently professes his secret love for Keira Knightley's Juliet with a series of hand-written cue cards (in spite of the fact that Juliet just married Mark's best friend, Peter, played by Chiwetel Ejiofor).

This time, the cast got to hold up hand-written signs as a touching orchestral accompaniment stirred up all the feels. Lincoln, Knightley and Ejiofor were among a score of the original stars featured in the trailer, which also saw Liam Neeson, Hugh Grant and Bill Nighy.

The cast's cute cue cards ask the audience to "Tune in to see what happened to everyone, and, among other things, which one of us has aged best."

"One thing's for sure," Grant's cue card reads, before pulling up a second one, "It's not Colin Firth."

The trailer then cuts to Neeson, sitting on a bridge and smiling while holding a card that reads, "I think it's obviously Liam, isn't it?"

One star who won't be part of the reunion is Emma Thompson. Last month, while doing press for Beauty and the Beast, Thompson said she couldn't be part of the reunion due to the death of Alan Rickman in January 2016. Rickman played Thompson's wife in the film, and the actress said "it would be sad" to appear without her on-screen partner.

The 10-minute reunion special airs as part of NBC's annual Red Nose Day charity event on May 25.
