Charlie Hunnam, the 31 year-old English actor will be starring in Guillermo Del Toro’s upcoming futuristic movie, Pacific Rim. Will this be the movie that pushes Charlie Hunnam into bigger and better things? He has the looks and talent to warrant it.
In an interview with Stumped Magazine, he compared acting to being a prize fighter.
“I always liked the analogy of being an actor is sort of like being a prize fighter, you can live your life the way you want to, but once you know you have a fight coming up, your focus becomes absolutely singular, and you’re on task, and you learn as much as you can about your opponent, and you prepare yourself as thoroughly as possible, so that when you step into the ring you have all the tools at your disposal to get the job done.”
What we’ve seen Charlie Hunnam in –
Nathan Maloney in the British Queer as Folk, title role in the 2002 adaption of Nicholas Nickleby, Bosie in 2003 Cold Mountain (he was menacing and so blond he almost looked albino), Gavin Nichols in 2011 The Ledge, Jax in FX’s Sons of Anarchy .
If you have the chance, check out Charlie Hunnam in The Ledge. He was smoldering as Gavin who falls in love with his new neighbor’s wife, Shana (lucky Liv Tyler). The husband, Joe (Patrick Wilson) who is a Christian fundamentalist finds out about the affair. He tells Gavin he must climb up to a ledge of a building and wait until a designated time to jump or Joe will kill Shana.
