Ten years ago, on Nov. 14, 2003, "Love Actually" opened in wide release around the country. The film quickly became a favorite for the holiday season, and stands as one of the most celebrated romantic comedies of the decade.
Led by director Richard Curtis ("About Time"), the ensemble cast included big names such as Hugh Grant, Colin Firth, Bill Nighy, Emma Thompson, Liam Neeson, and Keira Knightley. The intertwining story weaved together multiple tales of love gained and lost, and produced romantic scenes that made viewers swoon.
One such sequence starred Andrew Lincoln ("The Walking Dead") as Mark, a man who pines after his best friend's wife, played by Knightley. He has hinted at his feelings for her and wants to put them to rest by telling her exactly how he feels, "because it's Christmas."
