Do you recognise this woman? Look at her face. I’ll give you a second. … … As long time readers of this column already know, one of my all time favourite movies is Love Actually. From November to the end of December, I watch it at least once a week. Every scene, every song, every word is perfection. And if you haven’t seen the feature commentary, you must. Hugh Grant is such a bitch, he kills me. So you remember the hussy homewrecking secretary? The brunette with the body and the blunt cut bangs? This is Heiki Makatsch. A German actress, I believe, who collected an award at some German event the other day. Gorgeous, non? Pretty and soft and possibly pregnant or nursing and adorable and totally forgiven for being such an amoral wench in the movie. Kind of makes me want to break with tradition and watch it before holiday season, just to see her through non-hating eyes. Don’t you just love surprises?
