Charlie Hunnam is one of the hottest male actors of his generation. Before Hunnam became known for his role in “Sons of Anarchy,” the 35-year-old also starred in an onscreen hookup with “Game of Thrones” star Aiden Gillan. Read on to learn more about this scoop.
Charlie Hunnam is currently prepping for his upcoming film, “Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur.” Before Hunnam became known as Jackson Teller or “Jax” in the FX series, “Sons of Anarchy,” the 35-year-old actor previously starred in a gay role in the UK version of “Queer as Folk,” PopSugar reported.
Hunnam starred alongside “Game of Thrones” actor Aiden Gillan, who portrays the wise Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish in the HBO series. Hunnam and Gillan shared quite a handful of intimate scenes for their gay roles in the series, which premiered in 1999.
Hunnam and Gillan even shared a sex scene (as shown in the clip below), which according to Hunnam, helped him prepare for his supposed role for “Fifty Shades of Grey.”
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Hunnam confidently said that he has no worries about doing racy scenes with his onscreen partner, Dakota Johnson, who plays the role of Anastasia Steele.
“My first job was on a Channel 4 miniseries called ‘Queer as Folk.’ [There were] incredibly explicit sexual scenes with a man… So if I could do it when I was 18 with a guy, I can certainly do it at 33 with a lady,” he said.
Hunnam was previously slated to play the role of Christian Grey in the movie based on the series written by E.L. James; unfortunately, due to his conflicting schedules for “Sons of Anarchy,” the actor decided to withdraw from the role. Jamie Dornan snagged the role from him and the film became such a success that Dornan and Johnson are already preparing for the sequel, “Fifty Shades Darker.”
Meanwhile, Hunnam has an upcoming film called, “Crimson Peak,” for which the actor told Details (via Fashion & Style) that he won’t be playing much of a role in the movie, but he had high praises for lead stars, Jessica Chastain, Mia Wasikowska and Tom Hiddleston.
