“Sons of Anarchy” star Charlie Hunnam shared true to life experiences that contributed to the success of his portrayal in an interview a couple of months ago. And these experiences give two reasons why the “Sons of Anarchy” Prequel would be a big hit once he makes an appearance. However, will he come back? Read on for more details.
Reason No. 1: Meeting A True To Life Jackson “Jax” Teller
Hunnam was asked whether if he did hang out with some people in M-Cs. It was said that there were some who were actually from the club who took the role as extras in “Sons of Anarchy.” He said that there were indeed people from M-Cs. Also, he even got to know some people really well at a motorcycle club in Oakland.
And among those who stood out was a certain 22-year-old “kid” who was, for Hunnam, a true-to-life Jackson “Jax” Teller.
“It was like of a dream come true for me in a lot of ways when I went up there [Oakland]. Because he was Jax Teller,” Hunnam told Huffington Post. “I just thought I couldn’t find someone that would be more prototypically perfect than this kid.”
After meeting and hanging out with the “kid,” Hunnam based Jax’s looks, style, and mannerisms on him. The “kid” got killed after Hunnam left Oakland.
Reason No. 2: Meeting the ‘Purest Personification of Evil’ In A Maximum Prison
The second reason why “Sons of Anarchy” Prequel would definitely be a blockbuster hit. It was once Hunnam comes back was his experience being locked in Eyman Federal Prison in Arizona, which perhaps a shooting for prison scenes. It was during this visit that he met the “purest personification of evil.”
The guy in a cell called out to Hunnam saying, “Yo, Jax, where Abel, at homie?” He said that he did not want to look at the guy, but the guy kept on looking at him.
“Finally, I unintentionally caught his eye and then it was locked in this. And that haunted me for a while because I thought that guy knows who I am. He’s probably never getting out of prison but it was the clearest, purest personification of evil,” Hunnam said.
Hunnam shared that the guy killed five people while he was in prison. He was drawn at the guy’s stare and that was weird for him.
These experiences were significant contributions for Charlie Hunnam’s successful portrayal of “Jax” in the “Sons of Anarchy.” And he would be the best choice for the “Sons of Anarchy” Prequel. However, will he return?
“I’m not sure when it would happen though, he’s got another TV show he’s working on. I don’t know if he [Kurt Sutter] needs me as a lead actor on that too,” Hunnam told Men’s Journal.
Here’s to hoping that he would come back.
