Ten years ago today, an instant Christmas classic was released.

Yes, we're talking about "Love Actually."

This British romantic comedy delighted audiences on both sides of the pond and worldwide! To date, it's grossed nearly $250 million.

The film was unique in that it featured ten different story arcs that all came together in the end. Films like "New Year's Eve" and "Valentine's Day" have tried to replicate "Love Actually's" success, but without its charm.

At the time, the large ensemble cast featured established thesps (Liam Neeson, Emma Thompson, Hugh Grant), rising stars (Colin Firth, Keira Knightley) and relative unknowns (Andrew Lincoln, Martin Freeman, January Jones).

Looking back, who would've imagined that shy Mark (Lincoln, left) would become "The Walking Dead's" zombie-killing sheriff, or nude stand-in John (Freeman) would become Bilbo Baggins in "The Hobbit"?
