Martine McCutcheon has admitted that she got her first lines wrong when she reprised her role in the Love Actually sequel.
The 2003 movie is being revisited in a 10-minute sequel for Comic Relief.
Martine told Heat magazine: “My very first line, I got completely wrong. It ended up sounding Chinese!
“Hugh was like, ‘Ah, right, McCutcheon’s back.’”
Martine’s character and Hugh’s Prime Minister alter-ego fell in love in the original movie.
“Me and Hugh are like chalk and cheese – that’s what makes us work,” Martine said of the pair.
“He’s nervous about dance scenes whereas I go, ‘Yeah!’ and get stuck in. We bring out the best in each other.”
She added of her co-star: “Hugh championed me from the beginning. Without Hugh, it would be like salt without pepper.”
