Monday Morning Man: Charlie Hunnam!
Charlie Hunnam has been so identified now with playing scruffy biker Jax Teller on FX’s Sons of Anarchy that it’s hard to believe this is the same actor who we fell in love with as fresh-faced Nathan Maloney on the original UK version of Queer as Folk.
Now 37 (today is his birthday!), Charlie moved to LA after the success of Queer as Folk and and was cast in the WB Television Network series Young Americans which also starred Ian Somerhalder.
After his splash on Queer As Folk, Charlie appeared in the short-lived Fox series Undeclared as an English drama student called Lloyd Haythe. It lasted one season but remains a cult fave. He soon landed the lead in the feature film Nicholas Nickleby then headed back to the UK to star in Green Street Hooligans.
He’s was in Anarchy since 2008-2014 and next stars in the feature film King Arthur: Legend of the Sword. Charlie has also done several recent films including The Lost City of Z , Crimson Peak, 3,2,1… Frankie Go Boom, Deadfall, Pacific Rim and an intense 2011 drama that I saw called The Ledge.
