Viewers Shocked After Realising Boy From Love Actually Is In Netflix’s The Queen’s Gambit

People all around the world are becoming obsessed with The Queen's Gambit.

Anya Taylor-Joy plays chess genius Beth Harmon in the series and fans have raved about the outfits, the plot line, the incredible characters and the actors who bring them to life.

One interesting insight into the casting is that one of the key players in the limited series also starred in an iconic Christmas film.

You might have heard of a flick called Love Actually and in amongst the hugely stacked cast is a child actor called Thomas Brodie-Sangster. He played Liam Neeson's on-screen stepson and they go through the film increasing their bond.

People have been shocked to realise that Thomas is all grown up and is now playing Beth Harmon's arch nemesis on The Queen's Gambit.

Fans have also been trying to get their heads around chess player Harry Beltik, who is played by Harry Melling.

Melling rose to fame after playing Dudley Dursley, the cruel and spoiled child who we first met in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.

Dudley's final appearance in the Harry Potter franchise was in The Deathly Hallows Part I, but fans have taken to social media to voice their amazement at how different he looks:

It's been two decades since Philosopher's Stone to be fair, he was bound to change in some way.

Star of the show Anya Taylor-Joy has said she'd be up for a second season of the hit series.

Speaking to Town & Country, Anya said: "If I've learned anything from being in this industry, it's never say never.

"I adore the character, and I would certainly come back if I was asked to, but I do think we leave Beth in a good place.

"I think the rest of her life will surely be an adventure as well, but in the quest that she goes on in this to find some form of peace, just some form of being able to be happy with who she is.

"I think it ends in a nice place."

Although Anya would be game to star in another season of the show, there is only one book. There has been no news from Netflix on any possibility of more to come either - but we live in hope.
