After Everything saw the arrival of new cast member Mimi Keene, who plays Natalie, a former romantic interest of Hardin (Hero Fiennes Tiffin) who he visits in the fifth film to make amends.

The final film in the franchise wraps up Hardin and Tessa’s love story, but also gives fans more of an insight into their relationship from Hardin’s perspective.

He feels he can’t repair what he has with Tessa – who’s only in the movie at the very end – until he reunites with Natalie to ask for forgiveness.

But who is Natalie, who is she to Hardin and who plays her? Here’s what you need to know while watching After Everything.
