The Walking Dead’s Andrew Lincoln returns to one of his early roles for a good cause, and the new trailer for the Love Actually reunion is everything fans hoped it would be.

Love Actually is one of those British ensemble comedies that gained cult status over the years and is now a much beloved holiday classic film. The 2003 film starred Hugh Grant as a boyish Prime Minister, Liam Neeson as a widower raising a son by himself, and a bevy of other stars including Bill Nighy, Colin Firth, Emma Thompson, Alan Rickman, and Keira Knightley. Oh, and there was one other little known actor, a guy named Andrew Lincoln.

Over the course of the film eight different couples explored what love was to them. In some cases love was a magical thing, while in others love was tragic and harsh. But in the end, everyone found love in different areas of their lives.

One of the most iconic scenes in the film was one featuring Andrew Lincoln pretending to be a group of Christmas carolers, but in reality he was at Keira Knightley’s doorstep professing his love to her with a series of signs.

Now, the cast of Love Actually has come together 14 years later to film a special reunion to help promote Red Nose Day, a charity whose mission is to end childhood poverty. Here is a newly released trailer for the special reunion:

There is a bit of irony here when the cast talks about seeing who aged the best, because not only does Andrew Lincoln look a lot older with his grizzled Rick Grimes beard, but he’s also one of the most famous people in the cast now, showing how far he has come in just over a decade.
