GROWN UPS, ACTUALLY: What Sam and Joanna from Love Actually look like now.

In December, it’s a Christmas tradition to watch Love Actually

Your heart will break with Emma Thompson after her husband buys his receptionist a necklace, and you will get off the couch to dance along with Hugh Grant.

Tis’ the season, after all.

But as Love Actually comes to an end, 15 years after it was filmed, there is one question on everyone’s mind: What happened to Sam and Joanna?


Thomas Sangster, who played the innocent romantic Sam in Love Actually, is a very successful actor, having featured as Jojen Reed in Games of Thrones and Newt in The Maze Runner. 

He’s also the complete definition of a GLOW UP.

Would you look at that jaw line?

The 28-year-old was also the voice of Ferb Fletcher in Phineas and Ferb from 2007 to 2015. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Olivia Olson, who played Sam’s crush Joanna, is equally as successful.

Just like Thomas, she also featured in Phineas and Ferb as the voice of Vanessa Doofenshmirtz, but her main career focus has unsurprisingly been her kick ass vocals.

The 26-year-old’s album Nowhere Land was released in June this year. You can listen to the very vibe-y album on Spotify.

It’s all very wholesome, but we’re still sad about Emma Thompson.
