The short reunited Grant and MacDowell with the film’s Rowan Atkinson and Kristin Scott Thomas, adding Lily James, Alicia Vikander and Sam Smith. Its appearance was a special part of the annual Red Nose Day fundraising event, run by the non-profit Comic Relief USA, with the goal of ending childhood poverty. The event has raised $150 million since it started in the US in 2015.
The Four Weddings sequel was written by Richard Curtis, the original film’s writer and a Red Nose day originator. In the short sequel, James and Vikander wed, with Atkinson presiding.
As the wedding concludes, Grant quips to MacDowell, “Maybe I should’ve asked you to marry me. Why didn’t I?”
