So much time has passed and naturally the cast have changed... a LOT.
Is it really Christmas if you haven't watched Love Actually over ten times in December alone? The answer is of course... NOPE!
In 2018, Love Actually will be 15 years old, so we thought it was about time we caught up with where the legendary cast all are since the rom-com became a global phenomenon.
Thomas Brodie-Sangster as Sam
In the last 15 years, Thomas Brodie-Sangster has appeared in some of the biggest TV shows around including a stint in 'Game Of Thrones' as Jojen. He's also been voicing none other than Ferb from Disney's 'Phineas & Ferb' for the last 11 years!
Heike Makatsch as Mia
The German actress who played the seductive temptress Mia in the flick has appeared in several TV series and movies, most notably the 2013 war blockbuster The Book Thief. She's now married to the singer of a German indie band and has two kids, n'awww.
Joanna Page as Judy
Joanna Page is one of those actresses who instantly puts a smile on your face when she graces the screen. Since 'Love Actually' she's gone on to star as Queen Elizabeth I in 'Doctor Who' as well as countless theatre & film appearances. Bonus snap: Here's Joanna with her dog... in a baby sling... PERFECT.

Martin Freeman as John
Look at that cheeky face. And to be fair, you probably won't need to look far to see Martin Freeman on a billboard or poster. He's not only part of the hugely successful Sherlock Holmes franchise, he's been in The Hobbit, a Marvel flick or two and countless TV shows.
It’s Martin Freeman’s birthday. Happy birthday to Sherlock’s one and only friend! pic.twitter.com/jGSn37T3Pr— Sherlock (@Sherlock221B) September 8, 2017
Hugh Grant as David
Whilst we all sit here just wishing Hugh Grant was actually the Prime Minister, we're just going to have to settle with him as the PM of the 'Love Actually' universe. Of course, Hugh was already a household name and still is!
A word about RZ. Small TV monitor, NO GLASSES. She looks fab. Out to lunch meant v fondly.I adore the Swiss miss. pic.twitter.com/ktJkvJR2bj— Hugh Grant (@HackedOffHugh) August 13, 2016
Keira Knightley as Juliet.
It didn't take long for Keira Knightley to become the bae of the 00s. She was even nominated for a Golden Globe award for her role in the period drama 'Atonement' and as they say... the rest is history.

Martine McCutcheon as Natalie.
Best character in the entire movie? Erm... YES, do we even really need to ask? Martine's clumsy PA to the PM, Natalie, is where the heart of the movie lies (and a majority of the laughs). Martine has continued to act in TV, plays and films as well as release music!
Olivia Olsen as Joanna
That cutie who sang her heart out at the end of the movie has carved out an incredible C.V in the world of TV. She voices characters on shows such as Adventure Time, Phineas & Ferb AND The Powerpuff Girls (oh yeah, and she's stunning!).
Andrew Lincoln as Mark
Who else grew up wishing a fella would knock on their door with a stack of mushy notes on a board for them? Because we 100% did. Now, if you're a TV fanatic, you'll recognise Andrew straight away as THE star of 'The Walking Dead', arguably the biggest show in TV history.
Whilst you're here, re-watch this classic 'Love Actually' scene & get yourself ready for Christmas!
