By Roxy Simons For Mailonline. Competition: Love Actually child star Olivia Olson 'in talks to appear in Celebrity X Factor' after impressing show bosses with her 'fantastic voice', it was reported on Wednesday. Olivia was just 11 when she shot to fame in the festive flick, winning over fans of the film with her stunning rendition of Mariah Carey's All I Want For Christmas Is You on-stage at her primary school's Christmas production. Ideal candidate: Discussing her potential casting, an ITV source told the publication: 'Bosses wanted to vary the line-up' by casting her, and said she has 'a fantastic voice'. Love Actually told many tales of romance, but one of the most memorable was the one between Sam - played by Thomas Brodie-Sangster - and Joanna. Looked after by his stepfather Daniel Liam Neeson after the death of his mother, year-old Sam professed his love for his school friend Joanna, an American girl living in London with her family. However, hearts in cinemas across the world broke as he claimed she had no idea who he was, and he proceeded to learn to play the drums so he could take part in the Christmas concert to impress her. Cute: Thomas, who played schoolboy Sam, professed his love for his American classmate Joanna, and learned to play the drums for the Christmas concert at their school to win her over. During her unforgettable performance of the Mariah hit, it seemed that Sam might get his wish as she pointed to him, but the little lad's face fell as she then focused her attention on everyone else on the stage. But their puppy love story ended when he was seen chasing her through the airport on Christmas eve, and she came back to kiss him goodbye, admitting that 'of course' she knew who he was.
The actress, 27, who is best known for playing American student Joanna in the film, is one of many stars taking part in the ITV reality series. The film star admitted she was nervous ahead of here audition at Simon Cowell's house. When you step up there it hits you in the face how real it is and how badly you want it. I probably looked mental!

Because time is a curious thing that races by at the blink of an eye and makes us wonder when we became real adults who have to pay bills and stuff, it's now been 16 years since Love Actually came out. That's quite a long time. So it's not unexpected that the cast look pretty different nowadays, especially the kids from the show. We all know what little Sam played by Thomas Brodie-Sangster looks like now he's exactly the bloody same. But how about his childhood sweetheart from the film?
