She was the school girl that stole the heart of her classmate Sam 'Love Actually'. Now, she's 23 years old!
She was the school girl that stole the heart of fellow classmate Sam in the Christmas classic, Love Actually.
At the tender age of 10, Olivia Olson played Joanna opposite Thomas Brodie-Sangster who played Sam.
And it was Olivia's voice that was SO GOOD it could easily rival Mariah Carey in her own version of 'All I Want For Christmas'. She was only 10 when they filmed the movie!
In fact, her voice was so perfect that she had to have training in how to make her singing sound more believable and they even had to add breathing sounds to the track on the CD. Director Richard Curtis was worried that people would believe that a 10-year-old could sing as amazingly as she could. We repeat. 10-YEARS-OLD.
Now aged 23, the Californian beauty is still pursuing a career in acting and singing and she's even a budding author! Doesn't she look so grown up!
