We are getting some major rom-com tea 20 years later!
Filmmaker Richard Curtis revealed that the 2003 holiday romantic comedy ‘Love Actually’ originally had a lesbian love story.
A story that did not make the final cut in ‘Love Actually’ features the headmistress at the school attended by all of the film’s children, portrayed by Anne Reid, and her terminally ill wife, played by Frances de la Tour.
The scene shows Reid’s character coming home after a particularly exhausting day at work and having a conversation with her ill wife, who is suffering from an unnamed disease. It ends with Reid’s character struggling to go to sleep as her wife has a coughing fit, and then, we get to see Karen’s (played by Thompson) speech before the kids’ Christmas play to express her gratitude to the headmistress for being present despite her recent loss.
