It is that time of the year again when we all sit down to watch classic Christmas films to get into the festive spirit. It wouldn’t be Christmas without watching Love Actually, a film that has become a Christmas classic for many Brits.

One star who found fame in the much-loved festive flick, is actor Thomas Brodie-Sangster. When the film was released in 2003, Thomas was just 13 years old.

He played the role of Sam – a young boy who decides to learn how to play the drums to impress a girl he likes at school. In the film, his character poignantly learns to play the drums to impress her after his mother died. It ends with him chasing her through the airport on Christmas Eve to declare his love before she moves back to America and manages to bag himself a kiss on the cheek.
