Profile Bio Text
Charles Matthew "Charlie" Hunnam (born 10 April 1980) is a British actor and screenwriter. He is perhaps best known for his roles as Nathan Maloney in the Channel 4 drama Queer as Folk, Lloyd Haythe in the Fox comedy series Undeclared, Pete Dunham in the film Green Street Hooligans, Jackson "Jax" Teller in the FX series Sons of Anarchy, and Raleigh Becket in the film Pacific Rim. On September 2nd, 2013, 50 Shades of Grey author E. L. James announced via Twitter that Hunnam will play the lead role of Christian Grey in the upcoming film adaptation of the series.
Hunnam was born in Newcastle upon Tyne, England, the younger of two sons of what he has described as a "tough-guy" father and a "bohemian" mother, who split up when he was two years old. He moved to the Lake District when he was 12, as his mother remarried. Hunnam stated that "people started trying to prove their worth by fighting me on the playground to prove that they could have the Newcastle kid. So I ended up having a horrible childhood, a horrible time in school, having to really defend myself a lot."
He also said that "had that not happened to me, I think I would still have been as ambitious but I may not have been as disciplined and driven as I am now."
Hunnam attended Cumbria College of Art and Design, where he graduated with a degree in the theory and history of film with a side in performing arts.
Discovered on Christmas Eve while clowning around in a shoe shop buying shoes for his brother by a production manager for the British children's show Byker Grove, Hunnam was cast in his first role as Jason in three episodes of the show. Aged eighteen, his first major role came when he was cast by Russell T. Davies as fifteen-year-old schoolboy Nathan Maloney in Davies' Channel 4 drama Queer as Folk. He followed this up with his role as Daz in Whatever Happened to Harold Smith? and then relocated to Los Angeles.
His career expanded to include a recurring role as Gregor Ryder in the WB Television Network series Young Americans. He then appeared in the short-lived Fox series Undeclared as an English drama student called Lloyd Haythe. Despite critical acclaim, the series was cancelled after one season. Hunnam then appeared in Abandon, Nicholas Nickleby, and Cold Mountain. Hunnam has stated that he does not wish to simply take any role that he is offered: "I have 60 years to make the money, but the choices I make in the next five years are really going to define my career." This decision resulted in his return to the UK to take the lead role of Pete Dunham in Green Street, however his attempts at delivering a Cockney accent resulted in his inclusion in many critics' 'worst accents in movie history' lists.
Hunnam played the role of Patric, a member of "The Fishes", in Children of Men (2006). Hunnam states that this role was the final part in his "trilogy of mad men". "I played the psycho in Cold Mountain, my character in Green Street is fairly psychotic and now I've got this role." Hunnam currently stars as Jackson "Jax" Teller in Sons of Anarchy, a show about a prominent motorcycle club in a small fictional California town. Hunnam was cast after Kurt Sutter, the creator of the show, saw him in Green Street.
In 2009, he sold his screenplay Vlad to Summit Entertainment with Brad Pitt's Plan B Studios co-producing. The film is being directed by music video director and photographer Anthony Mandler, and will focus on Dracula as a young prince.
In 2013, Hunnam was featured in the men's magazine, Man of the World where he discussed a brief history of his career along with current and future projects including his screenplay, "Vlad." Charlie Hunnam will play Christian Grey for Fifty shades of Grey as tweeted and confirmed by E.L James
Hunnam met actress Katharine Towne in 1999 when they both auditioned for roles on Dawson's Creek. After dating for four weeks, they married in Las Vegas. The couple divorced in 2002. Hunnam was voted ninth in Elle Girl's top 100 sexiest men in 2005. He has been in a relationship with Morgana McNelis, a jewellery designer, since 2007. In July of 2013, Hunnam announced that he and Morgana were leaving Los Angeles, to live on a ranch just outside the city, which is much more peaceful, than the party scene of Hollywood.
