“Love Actually” remains one of the most beloved holiday movies of all time. From the intricate storylines about cheating, falling in love with someone who is unavailable, to falling in love despite not speaking the same language, to figuring out how to move on after a terrible breakup, to learning all about love as a kid. Every life lesson you ever wanted is all wrapped up in one great movie.
But whatever happened to the characters you loved? What happened to the hot creative who tried to bed Laura Linney? What happened to the adorable kiddo who brought us “All I Want for Christmas Is You”?
We figured out where everyone is and you might be surprised to see that some then-unknown actors are super famous now.

Rodrigo Santoro played the super sexy Carl, who famously went after Laura Linney. The newbie actor faked a British accent to get the role, but there are snippets of his Brazilian accent that shine through in moments. Ooo la la.

Emma Thompson may have played a simple housewife who got cheated on by her husband in the film, but off-screen she was a total hottie.
