"I played the psycho in Cold Mountain, my character in Green Street is fairly psychotic and now I've got this role." From 2008 to 2014, Hunnam starred 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.
Charlie and his girlfriend, Morgana Mc Nelis, have been dating for several years, and in that time, she's shown her support for the sexy star by joining him on red carpets and posting sweet pictures of her other half.
Like Charlie, she's creative, capturing her artistry with her Maison de Morgana jewelry designs.
A production manager for the Newcastle-based children's show Byker Grove approached him and Hunnam was later cast in his first role as Jason in three episodes of the show.
He also had a brief modeling career where he did a shoot for Kangols Caps and then decided modeling was not for him.
It’s so encouraging and comforting to know that there are classy, smart, beautiful, compassionate women in this world supporting other women.
He is known for his roles as Jackson "Jax" Teller in the FX drama series Sons of Anarchy (2008–14), Nathan Maloney in the Channel 4 drama Queer as Folk (1999–2000), Lloyd Haythe in the Fox comedy series Undeclared (2001–02), the title role in Nicholas Nickleby (2002), Pete Dunham in Green Street (2005), and Raleigh Becket in Pacific Rim (2013).His parents divorced when he was two years old, and he moved to the village of Melmerby, Cumbria when he was twelve, as his mother remarried. After moving, he went to Queen Elizabeth Grammar School in Penrith, Cumbria.At the age of 17, Hunnam was discovered in a shoe shop on Christmas Eve while drunkenly clowning around buying shoes for his brother.in Colombia last year, leaving him unable to communicate with his longtime girlfriend, Morgana Mc Neils.Though he tried to write her letters, they never got to her, and he decided it would be best to just stop trying to communicate all together."We went to Colombia, and the mail system doesn't really work very well," Hunnam explaine to Instead of trying to figure it out, he decided to cut off ties for a while and focus on his role, which he says "makes me sound like a total bastard, appropriately so, but I was very apologetic."In fact, the separation allowed him to dive deeper into his character as 19th-century explorer Percy Fawcett in the film.Hunnam explained, "One of the things that [director James Gray] and I felt strongly that we wanted to explore in the film was the conflict between family life and the exterior demands that are made on us and the social and economic demands that we all need to deal with in life, being balanced or in conflict with the internal drive, to be the people we want to be and achieve the things that we want to achieve."But while the non-communication may have made for better acting, it certainly couldn't have gone very well for Hunnam's relationship. "I had the benefit of shooting in Colombia, where they have rather lovely and somewhat cheap emeralds," Hunnam admitted.
