14 years on: The kids in Love Actually aren’t kids anymore


Ah how time flies.

We are pinching ourselves and rubbing our eyes at the news that Love Actually is in fact, 14 YEARS OLD. Yep, pretty crazy.

And as the annual time to watch Love Actually rolls around again (you do know it’s on Netflix now), we’ve been taken back by the news that Sam (Thomas Brodie- Sangster) and Joanna (Olivia Olson), who play the kids in the movie are well… no longer kids *sigh*.

In fact, they are both in their mid twenties. Having been duped this year as a young Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in the movie, it put these two back on our radar and with a little rooting, we cannot believe how different and grown-up they look now.

Before – Sam (Thomas Brodie- Sangster)

Now – 27-year-old Thomas
