"One of the things I love about that movie is the fact that so many of the people have become so much more famous," Curtis told Moviefone when asked about 'Love Actually' and its sprawling, all-star cast. "In fact, the movie is not what I intended. Originally, when I made the movie, it was meant to be 50 percent unknown cast. But Martin Freeman is very famous. Keira Knightley is very famous. Chiwetel Ejiofor is very famous. Andrew Lincoln is doing 'The Walking Dead.' It looks like I was only casting famous people, which wasn't my intention at all."
Two of those then-unknowns were Thomas Brodie-Sangster and Olivia Olson, Sam and Joanna, the young couple that connects during the airport-security flouting finale. Now 21 and 19, respectively, Brodie-Sangster and Olson are still working as actors. Brodie-Sangster appeared in the 2009 film 'Nowhere Boy,' and both he and Olson featured on the animated series 'Phineas and Ferb.'
So, what do they look like now? Shockingly, like older versions of their adorable 'Love Actually' lovebird selves! TMZ unearthed a picture of Olson from August, and Moviefone found a pic of Brodie-Sangster under the tree this morning as well. Check them out below.
