Charlie Hunnam — British actor
Charles Matthew Hunnam was born on 10 April 1980 in Newcastle, UK.
When Hunnam was 17 years old, he was looking for shoes in a nearby shoe store and was noticed by the production manager of a children’s TV series Byker Grove. Hunnman was invited to audition for the series and landed a role of Jason Chuckle. The character appeared in three episodes.
Even though the role was small, it gave a good jump-start to the actor’s career. Soon he got a starring part on the TV series Queer as Folk. For two years, Charlie portrayed 15-year-old gay boy Nathan Maloney. At about the same time, Hunnam debuted on the big screen in the movie Whatever Happened to Harold Smith? After the filming was done, the young actor moved to the USA.
In 2000, Charles appeared in the TV drama Young Americans, in which he portrayed the “bad guy” Gregor Ryder. In 2001 and 2002, Hunnam appeared in the sitcom Undeclared. He played the leading role of a British student Lloyd Haythe.
