Joanna Page’s Verdict: Gavin and Stacey’s Return Is Unlikely
In a recent revelation, Joanna Page, known for her role as Stacey in the iconic sitcom Gavin and Stacey, has dampened the hopes of fans anticipating a comeback.
Despite speculation fueled by co-writer and star James Corden’s return to the UK, Joanna suggests that the beloved series is unlikely to see a revival.
Speculation Amidst James Corden and Ruth Jones Meeting:
Fans had their hopes raised when James Corden was spotted meeting co-creator Ruth Jones in London’s Soho earlier this month. However, Joanna Page’s recent statements cast doubt on the possibility of another Christmas special.
The Cliffhanger Conundrum:
Joanna points out a crucial factor contributing to the uncertainty—the unresolved cliffhanger in the last episode.
The proposal from James Corden’s character, Smithy, to Ruth Jones’s character, Nessa, left viewers in suspense with no answer. This narrative choice, according to Joanna, makes the prospect of a revival less likely.
Mixed Feelings and Hopeful Expectations:
Despite expressing doubts, Joanna remains open to the idea of reprising her role, acknowledging the unpredictability of showbiz.
She emphasizes that if a comeback were to happen, she hopes it’s soon, considering the aging of the original cast.
Reflections on the Evolution of Gavin and Stacey:
Joanna takes a trip down memory lane, reflecting on the changes in life since Gavin and Stacey’s debut in 2007. She notes the significant shift in communication methods and societal norms, highlighting the differences between the show’s beginning and a potential modern-day rendition.
Christmas Associations and LEGO Campaign:
As Joanna gears up for Christmas with her family in Oxfordshire, she aligns herself with LEGO’s Build To Give campaign.
This initiative involves a 3D heart installation and a free LEGO building station in Cardiff, encouraging participants to build LEGO hearts and share them on social media with #BuildToGive. LEGO will then donate sets to children in need across the UK.
Love Actually and Festive Memories:
Joanna, known for her roles in festive classics like Love Actually and Nativity 2, reminisces about her experience in the star-studded cast of Love Actually.
With the film celebrating its 20th anniversary, Joanna expresses pride in being part of a film that has become a Christmas tradition for many.
A Christmas Penguin Souvenir:
Sharing an anecdote from Love Actually, Joanna recounts receiving a unique wedding gift from director Richard Curtis.
A giant inflatable penguin used in the film’s scene where she kisses Martin Freeman in the snow became a cherished Christmas decoration for her family.
LEGO’s Heartfelt Initiative in Cardiff:
Joanna concludes by highlighting the LEGO campaign in Cardiff, inviting children and adults to participate in building LEGO hearts.
The campaign aims to spread joy by donating LEGO sets to children in need and emphasizes the spirit of giving during the festive season.Share on Facebook «||» Share on Twitter «||» Share on Reddit «||» Share on LinkedIn
