The beloved rom-com flip-flops between seemingly unrelated characters and their complicated lives until the end when—plot twist—you find out how they were related all along. Of course, you remember Liam Neeson's character Daniel and his phone tag bud, Karen (Emma Thompson). Keira Knightley's character Juliet would be hard to forget, as would Hugh Grant's adorably clumsy prime minister. Hugh Grant Is Ready to Get Emotional But we'll bet you didn't remember that January Jones had a part in your fave holiday movie, or that Claudia Schiffer had a tiny cameo. Rodrigo Santoro had a major moment in HBO's hit series Westworld, but you must have all but forgotten that you actually fell in love with the hunk way back in 2003. In fact, there are seven (seven!) big names that we'll bet you didn't remember playing a part in the ensemble cast. Keep scrolling for a major refresher course. 01 of 07 Denise Richards AF archive/Alamy Stock Photo In a blink-and-you'll-miss-her role, Richards played Carla, the "real friendly one" who Colin brought back from America for his friend. Carla was friendly, indeed. 02 of 07 Billy Bob Thornton Courtesy of Netflix Angelina Jolie's ex-husband played the (married) American president who disgustingly hit on Natalie. Honestly, we probably have him to thank for their relationship, though, because his advances helped the prime minister (Hugh Grant) realize his true feelings. 03 of 07 Rodrigo Santoro AF archive/Alamy Stock Photo Santoro is in another one of your fave things to watch: Westworld. And yes, he's still smoking hot. 04 of 07 Claudia Schiffer Courtesy of Netflix The supermodel played the widowed Daniel's love interest at the end of the film, a single mom who he (literally) bumps into at the end of the talent show. He was just as surprised to see her as we were. 05 of 07 Chiwetel Ejiofor AF archive/Alamy Stock Photo You remember Ejiofor as Keira Knightley's fictional husband, but did you realize he was the same man nominated for an Oscar for his role in 12 Years a Slave? This dude's got range. 06 of 07 Ivana Milicevic Courtesy of Netflix Milicevic plays Stacey, the American who first takes note of Colin in the bar and introduces him to her friends. You might recognize the actress from another movie, Head Over Heels, in which she also plays a hot girl who lives with a bunch of her friends. Typecasting at its finest. 07 of 07 January Jones Courtesy of Netflix Yes, that was the Mad Men star in Love Actually. Jones plays yet another American girl at the bar who is obsessed with Colin Frissell's British accent.
