The Definitive Ranking Of The "Love Actually" Male Leads

It's three weeks until Christmas, and this is what really matters.

10. Harry (Alan Rickman)

Harry was the worst. Not to mention the fact that he IS Professor Snape, Harry also has an emotional affair with Mia, leaving his lovely wife, played by Emma Thompson, devastated. Bah Humbug.

9. Billy Mack (Bill Nighy)


Billy Mack might be an aging popstar who chose to sing naked on Christmas Eve AND embarrass Ant & Dec, but we like him anyway. He is an acquired taste, that's for sure.


8. Peter (Chiwetel Ejiofor)

StudioCanal / Via

Yes, Peter is played by Oscar nominated actor Chiwetel Ejiofor, but in Love Actually, he was a little irrelevant. And he totally played second fiddle to the amazing Mark.

6. John (Martin Freeman)

StudioCanal / Via

John and Judy are the sweetest couple in Love Actually. After meeting in the most awkward way ever, it was so adorable when he took the tentative steps towards asking her out. Top marks, John.

1. Mark (Andrew Lincoln)

StudioCanal / Via

Mark might be the most romantic character to ever appear in a festive film. Damn Chiwetel Ejiofor for getting in the way of this perfect love. To us, Mark is perfect.
