Charlie Hunnam Reveals What Got Him Into Acting; ‘Sons of Anarchy’ Star Admits He Likes to Ride Alone
Charlie Hunnam is best known for her biker role in the FX drama, “Sons of Anarchy.” While the series may have ended in 2014, the 35-year-old actor admitted that he is an aggressive driver who likes to stay on the road alone. Read on to learn more about this scoop.
Charlie Hunnam may have ended his role as Jax Teller following his character’s death in the season finale of the FX series, “Sons of Anarchy,” but the actor is already moving forward with different projects to take on. The 35-year-old star is slated to appear as King Arthur in “Knights of the Roundtable” and in Guillermo del Toro’s upcoming movie, “Crimson Peak.”
Hunnam admitted that he was surprised to learn that his character was going to be killed off in “Sons of Anarchy.” The actor recounted that he had a one-on-one conversation with Kurt Sutter, who made him realize that Jax’s death in the series was needed and that making him live on was only going to make the story “more tragic.”
He also shared that even though his bad boy biker role has ended, he still continues to ride his own bike, which coincidentally, is the same as his ride in ‘SOA.’ Hunnam admitted that the “King Arthur” story was what led him to pursue his career as an actor.
“I fell in love with the story and would watch any of the movies about that story that played when I was a kid. It’s a real honor to be able to play this role,” Hunnam told Men’s Journal.
“Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur” will follow the story of Arthur, who is unaware of his royal lineage until he stumbles upon the Excalibur and goes on a battle against Vortigern (Jude Law), British Weekly noted.
