The Love Actually actress was only spotted in the trailer for a moment, where she is dressed in a gown while looking out onto the horizon, but fans were clearly delighted to spot her, with one writing: "Golly Elizabeth sure hasn't aged a day since the first movie." Another added: "I DIDN'T EVEN THINK SHE WAS GOING TO BE IN THIS MOVIE OH MY GOODNESS IM SO EXCITED." Keira and Orlando will appear in the film alongside their son, Henry, who will be played by Brenton Thwaites. Speaking about his role, he told the Mirror TV: "It's about a young man who wants to reconnect with his father…There's a curse that prevents him from doing that. I think it's about how he goes around that and tries to fix it and he has to save his dad."
