Charlie Hunnam is not only an English actor but a screenwriter too, who likes to be in control over his life: “Right before I got ‘Sons of Anarchy,’ I actually quit acting for 18 months and didn’t read a single script, and I wrote a film. I felt like I needed to do something that I had control over, as an artist, and also just do something where I felt like I had some control over my life, as just a human, out in the world.”
He is known for his roles as Jackson “Jax” Teller in the FX drama series Sons of Anarchy (2008–14) or the title role in Nicholas Nickleby (2002).
However, he prefers to play the villain. “I was playing pretty boys and these angelic roles like Nicholas Nickleby and all that stuff. And I was like, ‘What am I doing? This isn’t who I am, as a man or an artist.’ I had to overcome people’s belief that I was too pretty to be a badass.”
Thus, our quote of the day is dedicated to Charlie Hunnam. Listen to him!
“It’s generally more fun playing the villain.”
