This safety video from British Airways has more A-list actors than Love Actually

Rowan Atkinson, Sir Ian McKellen, Gillian Anderson, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Thandie Newton are just some of the stars cast.

Right now the rivalry between airlines for most exciting air safety video is strong (shout out to Air New Zealand's Hobbit-theamed video) but British Airways may have taken the lead with the most star studded production we've seen.

Enlisting the acting services of Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rowan Atkinson, Sir Ian McKellen, Gordon Ramsay, Thandie Newton and more, the airline teamed up with Comic Relief to get talented thespians to make out like they were auditioning for the safety demo video with comedian Asim Chaudhry playing role of casting director.

Of the video British airways CEO Alex Cruz said in a statement: “It’s extremely important to us that customers engage with our safety video, and involving some of the nation’s most well-known personalities has given us the chance to create something fun that we hope people will watch from start to finish.”
