Charlie Hunnam        

Actor Known for "Pacific Rim" and "Sons of Anarchy"

is an English actor and screenwriter. He is known for his roles as Jackson "Jax" Teller on the FX series Sons of Anarchy (2008–14), for which he was twice nominated for the Critics' Choice Television Award for Best Actor; Lloyd Haythe on the Fox series Undeclared (2001–02); and Nathan Maloney in the Channel 4 drama Queer as Folk (1999–2000). His film work includes the title role in Nicholas Nickleby (2002); Pete Dunham in Green Street (2005); Raleigh Becket in Pacific Rim (2013); Percy Fawcett in The Lost City of Z (2016); the title role in Guy Ritchie's King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017); and Raymond Smith in The Gentlemen (2019).

Immediately prior to getting cast on Sons of Anarchy, Hunnam 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 the real-life story of Vlad the Impaler. Hunnam learned the story from locals in Romania while shooting Cold Mountain. He stated that he had not acted in 18 months and was so broke that if he had not managed to sell the script he would have had to sell his house and move back to England to live with his mother. Hunnam is also developing a screenplay based on a 2011 Rolling Stone article that he optioned about Edgar Valdez Villareal, an American drug lord who ran one of the biggest cartels in Mexico. Another project he has in development is a film about gypsy culture in Britain, which he hopes to direct. He stated that it is "a part of English society that's really seldom been explored, but is one of the most colourful and interesting parts of British society."
