Did you know Rick Grimes from The Walking Dead is also Mark from Love Actually?! Well, some fans are realising it for the first time, and their minds are totally blown by the news.
Andrew Lincoln - who played both Rick in TWD and Mark in Love Actually - was just 30 when he played Peter's BFF and best man Mark in the classic Christmas film.
As every fan will know, Mark was head over heels in love with Keira Knightley's character, Juliet (and managed to film an entire wedding video of pretty much just her face) and declared his love during that infamous sign scene.
But fresh faced Mark is a far cry from Rick Grimes, who's been trying to survive in a zombie apocalypse world for years - and many fans have only just realised that Andrew plays both characters.
"STOP THE GUY IN LOVE ACTUALLY WHO DOES THE CARD THING IS RICK FROM WALKING DEAD?!?!" One person tweeted.
While another said: "Quite possibly may be the stupidest person ever bc I just realised Rick from Walking Dead is in Love Actually."
"I think it took me entirely too long watching The Walking Dead before I figured out that Rick Grimes is first and foremost Mark in Love Actually!" Added another fan.
One person even went as far as to say the realisation had "changed her life" adding: "Finding out rick from the walking dead is mark in love actually has changed my life."
Another fan even said they consider Love Actually to be a prequel to TWD - and now our minds really are blown.
"When i watch Love, Actually, I like to think if it as sort of a little prequel to The Walking Dead. Rick Grimes life before he met Lori," they said.

Now, in other TWD news, earlier this week we told you everything you need to know about 'the Rick Grimes movie'.
A movie based on the popular apocalypse series is on its way in 2021, with filming beginning in the spring. The film - starring Andrew - will pick up from Rick's exit from TWD series, with Pollyanna McIntosh expected to return as Anne.
And - much to the delight of fans - Michonne could also be making a return.
