‘Love Actually’ is Celebrating It’s 20th Anniversary — See The Cast Then And Now

Catch up with the beloved stars of the Christmas cult classic!

On November 6, 2003, the world was introduced to the romantic Christmas comedy Love Actually, and with an ensemble cast and heartstrings-tugging storylines, it quickly became a cult classic. Written and directed by Richard Curtis, also known for Four Weddings and a Funeral, the romantic and comedic film features a large cast of characters as they embark on seemingly random and unconnected adventures around London, five weeks before Christmas. But as the story goes on and Christmas gets closer, the Love Actually characters cross paths, and we learn that most are interlinked in one way or another.

And now, celebrating it’s 20th anniversary, this heartwarming web of love stories still brings joy — and tears — to audiences around the world with it’s mix of hope, despair, love and loss.

Keira [Knightley] was cast for the youthfulness and cheerfulness of her spirit, and she is still like that. Bill [Nighy] is everlastingly young and irresponsible; Liam [Neeson] terribly paternal,” creator Richard Curtis told The New York Times in May 2017 after reuniting with the cast for a Red Nose Day short film. “Hugh Grant behaved well for one week of the original shoot, very badly for the rest, and did exactly the same thing over one day now. It’s rather reassuring.”
