We're way to excited to watch the upcoming Love Actually sequel, even if it is only going to last for 10 minutes.


There's already been pictures from the set and we know that little Sam and his Joanna are still hanging out, but there's one character that unfortunately won't be returning to our screens.

In the first film, Emma Thompson played Karen.


She was the big sister of Hugh Grant's Prime Minister and friend to Liam Neeson's widower.

And she was also married to Alan Rickman's character and questioned her daughter about why there was a lobster in a nativity play.


Obviously, she was one of our favourites.

She had an extremely emotional storyline and according to the film's script editor, her character stayed with her husband, even after he cheated with his secretary.

The great Alan Rickman passed away last year and the loss was felt across the world. 


It's understandable that the sequel would not want to bring Emma's character back into the mix because of the tragic event that for some, could still be a sensitive subject.

We still can't help but wonder what happened to their marriage, though.

The scriptwriter said in December last year that the couple did indeed stay together, but we wonder what their life would be like now...


Maybe Hugh might shed some light on it in the sequel?

Or maybe, like Richard Curtis, the director of the film, says in his interview with Victoria Derbyshire, she could come return for a quick cameo.

"You know, oddly, we're not quite sure.

"It's all been done in a great rush and I think not, but I'm now thinking again.

"So we'll wait and see."

All we're hoping, is that after everything she went through, she still had a happy ending.
