It will also include an appearance from writer and director Richard Curtis, as well as a message from Martine McCutcheon.
ABC said the special would offer new insight into behind-the-scenes secrets and the film’s famous scenes as well as examining how the Covid-19 pandemic “refocused the ways we love and connect”.
In an exclusive clip of the interview, Dame Emma recalled watching the film for the first time.
“Hugh came up behind me as we were walking out and said ‘is that the most psychotic thing we’ve ever been in?'”
Grant also reveals that he thought he would “hate” the iconic dancing scene in Downing Street.
“But I will give myself the credit of having the secretary catch me,” he says.
In another clip, Curtis tells Sawyer: “I do think that the way to think about life is that every day has the potential just to be gorgeous.”
The Laughter & Secrets of Love Actually: 20 Years Later – A Diane Sawyer Special, will air on Wednesday, November 30th at 1am Irish time on ABC.
