A superhero and an indie film star: The cast of Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging 11 years later.

In many ways, Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging was the perfect 00s film.

The 2008 rom-com had it all: a Bridget Jones-eqsue narrator, teen angst and adolescent romance with a very important ‘snogging scale’, which began with “sticky eyes” (0.5) to “The Full Monty” (10).

It was entertaining and educating.

Now, 11 years from its premiere, we check in with the cast to see what they’re up to a decade later.

From secret romances with Harry Potter stars to blockbuster acting careers, this is what Robbie, ‘Wet Lindsey’ and The Ace Gang are doing now.

Watch the trailer for Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging. Post continues below.

Georgia Groome as Georgia Nicolson

After her breakout role as the quirky, self-indulgent but loveable Georgia Nicolson, Georgia Groome continued acting in various film, TV, radio and theatre productions.

Although she’s mainly stuck to indie, small-release films, her most notable roles since include playing Lulu in Double Date and Winifred in The Great Ghost Rescue.

According to a tweet from 2018, Groome has also been dating Harry Potter star, Rupert Grint (AKA Ron Weasley) since 2011.

In April 2019, The Mirror also suggested the couple had secretly married after the pair were photographed wearing matching gold rings.

Consider our minds officially blown.

Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Robbie Jennings

Now 29, Taylor-Johnson is still scoring large Hollywood roles. Most notably, he played superhero Quicksilver in the Marvel films, appearing in Avengers: Age of Ultron and Captain America: The Winter Soldier. He also won a Golden Globe for his portrayal as psychotic Ray Marcus in Tom Ford's 2016 film Nocturnal Animals.

After ATPS, Taylor-Johnson went on to play John Lennon in Nowhere Boy (2009), a biographical drama film about the pop star's adolescence. There, he began dating the director Sam Taylor-Johnson, who was 23 years his senior.

The couple announced their engagement later that year and got married in 2012. Between them, they have two daughters, with an additional two daughters from Sam's previous marriage.

Eleanor Tomlinson's other acting credits include Loving Vincent, The White Queen and Colette, where she acted alongside Keira Knightley.

It's unknown if the 27-year-old is currently dating anybody, but she did have a two-year relationship with equestrian and stunt man Ben Atkinson from 2015 to 2017.

The Sun also reports she was romantically involved with her Poldark co-star Harry Richardson for a year before they broke up in June 2018.

Manjeeven Grewal as Ellen

It seems like Manjeeven Grewal retired from acting after her stint on ATPS.

Her last acting credit was a minor feature on the UK programme, School of Comedy.

Grewal isn't one to share her life on social media either; while the former actress has a private Twitter account, she has no traceable Instagram account.

Georgia Henshaw as Rosie

One of the funniest moments of the ATPS was when Rosie told The Ace gang, to sit on their hands until they felt numb, before cupping their boobs because that's what it's like getting 'felt up'.

Since 2008, Henshaw's continued acting in a number of BBC productions like Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps in 2011, and Waterloo Road from 2011 to 2012. The 26-year-old also briefly appeared in Skins, playing JJ's romantic interest, Lara, in 2010.

Although the actress has a public Twitter profile, her last tweet was in 2017.

Kimberley Nixon as 'Wet Lindsay'

Despite playing Georgia's nemesis in the film, Welsh actress Kimberley Nixon continued her rom-com streak after ATPS.

In 2008 she appeared in Easy Virtue and Wild Child alongside Emma Roberts, and most recently featured in UK series like Death in Paradise and The Left Behind.

Rumours of a relationship between Nixon and Grint also emerged after the two starred in the 2009 film Cherrybomb, however, both actors denied the speculation.
