For December’s festive special, Mark welcomes Richard Curtis to the screen for an episode dedicated to Love Actually.
Mark and Richard chat about the genesis of the Christmas favourite – the joyful, difficult and autobiographical elements of the storylines – and what Richard would do differently if he were to make the film now.
Hear Richard spill the beans about Hugh Grant and that dance, filming Emma Thompson’s extraordinary scenes, casting a young Thomas Brodie Sangster, and why Colin Firth is always vaguely cross. Watch out for Mark’s version of Laura Linney’s little dance for joy!
Emma Freud joins in to talk about her part in the film and Richard reveals his own top three Christmas films.
