Charles Matthew Hunnam (born 10 April 1980), known professionally as Charlie Hunnam, is an English actor.

After getting his big break as Nathan Maloney in the original British version of Queer as Folk, Hunnam is perhaps best known for his portrayal of Jackson "Jax" Teller on the FX series Sons of Anarchy, as well as Raleigh Beckett in Guillermo del Toro's 2013 film Pacific Rim. He also stars as King Arthur in Guy Ritchie's 2017 film King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.

Oddly enough, Hunnam is also known for a few roles he didn't end up playing. He auditioned for Anakin Skywalker in the 2002 Star Wars film Attack of the Clones, Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and the eponymous role of The WB's Dawson's Creek.

Hunnam was also cast as Christian Grey in the live-action film adaptation of erotica novel Fifty Shades of Grey, but dropped out of the project shortly before filming and was replaced by Jamie Dornan. As well, the role of Aldous Snow in Judd Apatow's Forgetting Sarah Marshall was intended for him, which ultimately went to Russell Brand after Hunnam passed on accepting.
