If you thought that Andrew Lincoln's profession of love to his best friend's wife (Keira Knightley) in Love Actually was creeping toward stalker behavior, you're not alone. The Walking Dead actor recently revealed to the Wrap that he had worried that his character's feelings for Juliet (Knightley) might have been just a little disturbed.

In the film, Mark is crazy about his best friend's new wife, Juliet. He handles this by avoiding and refusing to speak to her in public and lusting after her in secret. He realizes that his feelings are wildly inappropriate...

...although he still steps way out of line by telling Juliet how he feels while his friend is waiting in the next room, and asking Juliet to lie and say it's carollers.

Lincoln asked Love Actually director Richard Curtis, "Do you not think we're sort of on borderline stalker territory here?" to which Curtis replied, "No, no. Not with you playing it, darling. You'll be alright." Seriously?

Check out the full scene below and see for yourself whether you think Mark is a weirdo.

Maybe Lincoln was right to worry. But in case you fell for that spiel with the posters and thought that Mark was a big old romantic and maybe he and Juliet might end up together after all, screenwriter Emma Freud announced on Twitter that that would never happen in a million years.


Who do you think Juliet should have chosen?
