Better than any of the romantic relationships in the 2003 Christmas classic is the father-son relationship between Daniel and Sam, played by Liam Neeson and Thomas Brodie-Sangster. The two were thick as thieves in the original film, and these new pictures from the set of the special are serving some serious nostalgia.
The photos, taken by Red Nose Day director Emma Freud (and editor of the original Love Actually script), show Liam Neeson in a turtleneck (!!! iconic) and Thomas Brodie-Sangster all grown up with a (fairly creepy) mustache to prove it.
Then there's this photo, which requires some deep breaths. Looks like Daniel and Sam are going back to the bench where it all began, the bench where a tiny Brodie-Sangster uttered the words "Worse than the total agony of being in love?"
He was, of course, talking about his feelings for Joanna, who is also back and completely unrecognizable.
The month ahead to the special's release feels like a long one, but you can stay updated on set photos and behind-the-scenes news by following the hashtag #rednosedayactually on Twitter.
