It's the moment where Colin (played by Kris Marshall), who heads to America in search of love ends up in the bedroom with two girls.

Speaking to Australian news site she said: “The scene where Colin is seen through the win­dow of the Amer­i­can girls’ apart­ment was one I bat­tled and lost, and it still makes me wince".

They also quizzed her about a potential Love Actually sequel but she didn't give anything away except if she were to cast the film in 2018 she said "Lots of them would be the same".


However she did say that she thinks Richard Curtis would cast Saoirse Ronan or Lily James' as Kiera KNightley's character and People Just Do Nothing's Asim Chaudhry as Colin Frissell if he was shooting it today.
