  Biography  

 life and career
Hunnam was born in Newcastle, England on 10 April 1980. He is the second oldest of four boys. Hunnam stated that growing up, his favorite actors were Daniel Day-Lewis and Sean Penn.

Discovered while clowning around in a shoe shop by a production manager for the British children's show Byker Grove, Charlie Hunnam was cast in his first role as the long-locked child model "Jason" in three episodes of the show. His first major role came soon after as Nathan Maloney in the Channel 4 drama Queer as Folk . He followed this up with his role as "Daz" in the British film Whatever Happened to Harold Smith?. Upon completion of both projects, Hunnam relocated to Los Angeles, California to pursue his acting career.

His career, meanwhile, expanded to include a recurring role as Gregor Ryder in a TV Series for The WB network called Young Americans. He then appeared in the short-lived Fox series Undeclared as the British drama student Lloyd Haythe. The series was cancelled after one season, despite critical acclaim. Following Undeclared, he appeared in Abandon, Nicholas Nickleby , and Cold Mountain.

Hunnam has stated that he does not wish to simply take any role that he is offered: "I have 60 years to make the money, but the choices I make in the next five years are really going to define my career." This decision resulted in his return to the United Kingdom to take the lead as Pete Dunham in Green Street .

Hunnam played the role of Patric, a member of "The Fishes", in Children of Men directed by Alfonso Cuarón. Hunnam states that this role was the final part in his "trilogy of mad men". "I played the psycho in Cold Mountain, my character in Green Street is fairly psychotic and now I've got this role."

Hunnam currently stars as President Jackson "Jax" Teller in the FX network series, Sons of Anarchy, a prominent motorcycle club in a small fictional California town.

Hunnam was voted ninth in Elle Girl's top 100 sexiest men in 2005.

In 2011, Hunnam appeared in The Ledge, a layered love story with themes of religious faith co-starring Liv Tyler, Patrick Wilson, and Terrence Howard. In 2009, 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 Dracula as a young prince.

Charlie has been dating a jewelry designer Morgana Mcnelis since 2008. Her mother Judith Haas Mcnelis served 20-year federal prison sentence handed down after her 1985 guilty plea to drug-trafficking charges. Judith's sister Connie Meester was involved in the same drug ring.
