Charlie Hunnam Plays The Romantic Character in ‘Crimson Peak’
Charlie Hunnam rocks, no doubt! He convinced everyone playing the role as Jackson ‘Jax’ Teller in the crime drama TV show ‘Sons of Anarchy,’ and awards and nominations have been numerous (would he deserve an Emmy too?)
Of course, everybody is excited with the idea of a sexy young King Arthur, who is going to look like Hunnam in the 2016 film ‘Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur.’ Great choice for this difficult and legendary role!
But Charlie Hunnam is a versatile actor, and we’ll see him playing a different role in the Gothic Horror movie ‘Crimson Peak’ by Guillermo del Toro. Here, he plays as Dr. Alan McMichael, a discreet, shy, thoughtful kind of stoic, taciturn, very educated gentleman, who is madly in love with Edith Cushing, the female hero (Mia Wasikowska.)
Plot: Set in Cumbria, in a creepy mansion in a rural and mountainous region of northern England in the 19th century, young author Edith Cushing (Wasikowska) discovers that her charming new husband Sir Thomas Sharpe (Hiddleston) is not who he appears to be.
The movie also stars Mia Wasikowska, Tom Hiddleston, Jessica Chastain, Charlie Hunnam, and Jim Beaver. Amazing cast! Don’t you think so?
Remember that after attending an early screening, horror writer Stephen King called the movie “gorgeous and just fucking terrifying”, and he said it “electrified” him like Sam Raimi’s The Evil Dead, whose distribution King helped secure with an enthusiastic review in 1982.
Crimson Peak is produced by Legendary Pictures and distributed by Universal Pictures. The film is scheduled to be released on October 16, 2015.
“I got expelled from high school, and then did my exams from home. I decided, through that experience, that I was going to expedite my plan and didn’t go to university. Instead, I went to a community college and studied the theory and history of film with the idea that I wanted to write and direct.” Charlie Hunnam.
Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you!
