Joe Alwyn Says He Auditioned Multiple Times for 'Love Actually'!

Joe Alwyn is all smiles as he sits down to promote his latest film Mary Queen of Scots at the BUILD Series studios on Tuesday (December 4) in New York City.

The 27-year-old actor was joined at the event by his co-star Jack Lowden, as well as the film’s director Josie Rourke.

The day before, Joe made an appearance on Live With Kelly and Ryan and revealed nearly starred in Love Actually for the part of Sam, the lovestruck son of Liam Neeson‘s character.

“It meant that I got time off of school to go to this audition, so I went to it,” Joe explained. “And they had me back for another one and another one. And there was a whole series of workshops. I didn’t get in, obviously, but I do remember meeting Hugh Grant and [writer-director] Richard Curtis and sitting down and reading some scenes.”
