Believe it or not, it has been 15 years since “Love Actually” captivated audiences for many Christmases to come.
Channel Seven’s “The Morning Show” caught up with actress Olivia Olson, who starred as the adorable Joanna in “Love Actually”.
“I can’t believe people still care, that they’re still talking about [the movie] it’s so awesome,” Olson, now 26, told the program. “15 years is a long time.”
Olson said her mom was more excited than she was about the whole ordeal. “I remember how excited my mom was. She was a fangirl for Hugh Grant,” she recalled. “I didn’t know who anyone was! I was only nine, but it’s such a blessing that I was part of this huge service cast.”
These days, Olsen is keeping just as busy. She appeared in the 2017 BBC “Red Nose Day” short, which reunited several characters from the film 14-years-later. Olsen also released an album called Nowhere Land in June.
“This past weekend I just wrapped up a short film, we’ll see what happened,” Olsen said of her acting future.
Whatsmore, the actress of Swedish and Jamaican descent has been compared to the Duchess of Sussex. “I have not been invited to tea with the Queen yet, but maybe [one day]?” she teased.
“Love Actually” premiered Nov. 14, 2003. It starred Olsen, Grant, Alan Rickman, Emma Thompson, Keira Knightley, Colin Firth, Liam Neeson, Andrew Lincoln, Lauren Linney, Martin Freeman, Billy Bob Thorton, Rowan Atkinson and many more.
