Christmas Cracker – Love Actually

Today's Christmas Cracker features interesting facts about Love Actually...


Our Christmas Cracker facts today are all about Richard Curtis’s festive Love Actually

Claudia Schiffer was paid a reported £200,000 for her cameo in the film.

Jim Henson’s funeral inspired the wedding scene (where members of the congregation begin to play The Beatles’s ‘All You Need is Love’). Crew members behind Muppet classics produced the famous puppets at his funeral to sing him off.

The lake into which Aurelia dives in order to save Jamie (Colin Firth)’s novel was in fact a mere 18 inches deep. Due to this the actors had to kneel and give the impression of a much deeper lake.

  • Hey Sam! I can't attach a feature picture to this post, is it something to do with my permission access on the new system? Best, Tom
  • Hey Sam, it's the new system, I'm just trying it out for my latest podcast episode with Greg Lucey and I'm trying to attach a picture - it uploads the picture and then says I don't have permission to attach it :(
  • Hi Tom, I'll look into this today. I think I already know what the issue is. It's because the media being uploaded is not associating itself to a post ID. Thank you for being my test dummy. At least this creation dialogue is working!!!
  • Hey Sam, I've tried again just now still the same issues I'm afraid :( I'd also look at the text editor I'm not sure if the texted/front is properly formatting at the moment (there's big gapes in the spacing, front size). If you want to jump around inside my draft and see what's what please do! I think I am going to use the legacy editor to upload today, but we can work  on testing and refining the new editor together :) Best, Tom
