LOVE Actually is back – and look how much the youngest cast members have grown up.
The hit film, which was released FOURTEEN years ago, is making a welcome comeback for Comic Relief.
The 2003 smash is being resurrected for a ten minute Red Nose Day special – and fans couldn’t be more excited.
Viewers have been mesmerised by how grown up the youngest members of the original cast, Olivia Olson and Thomas Brodie-Sangster, are now – who were 11 and 13 at the time.
Olivia played the super-cute child singer Joanna who was the object of affection for Sam, the son of Liam Neeson.
The short film will be called Red Nose Day Actually and fans have gone wild as behind-the-scenes photos have emerged.
Richard Curtis’ partner Emma Freud posted a picture of director Curtis on set with 24-year-old Olivia.
She captioned it: “Oh hello #rednosedayactually cast member looking slightly older than she did in the original film.”
Olivia – who is the voice of Marceline in cult cartoon Adventure Time – looked stunning as she reprised her role alongside Sam
Liam Neeson and Thomas Brodie-Sangster, 26, who is now starring in Game Of Thrones, played the tear-jerking father and son team.
They’ve managed to get hearts melting once again as they embraced each other on set.
