In the onslaught of "Game of Thrones" Season 3 images and footage, some fans may have glimpsed a familiar face they couldn't quite place.

That tall, blond, angel-faced young man is Thomas Brodie-Sangster -- the adorable kid from "Love Actually"!

If you've seen the heartwarming romantic movie, he played Sam, Liam Neeson's stepson, who crushes on a girl at school. At one point, Neeson questions a depressed Sam about what's going on in his life, to which the boy answers, "The truth is, actually … I'm in love."

A relieved and amused Neeson laughs. "I thought it would be something worse."

Sam levels him with a stern gaze and replies, "Worse than the total agony of being in love?!" (Cue the "awwwwws"!)

In "Game of Thrones," Brodie-Sangster joins the cast as Jojen Reed, who befriends Bran Stark as he flees from Winterfell. Jojen provides Bran with some answers to the strange dreams he's been having since his fall.

Since "Love Actually," Brodie-Sangster has appeared in movies including "Nanny McPhee" and "Nowhere Boy." Young fans may recognize his voice as Ferb from the Disney Channel animated show "Phineas and Ferb."

"Game of Thrones" airs Sundays at 9 PM on HBO.
