Charles Matthew "Charlie" Hunnam (born 10 April 1980) is an English actor. He is perhaps known to UK audiences as Pete Dunham in Green Street and as Nathan Maloney in the Channel 4 hit drama Queer as Folk and to US audiences as Jackson "Jax" Teller in the FX network series, Sons of Anarchy.
Hunnam was born in Newcastle, England on 10 April 1980. He is the second oldest of four boys. Hunnam is also the ex-son-in-law of Robert Towne and Julie Payne. Hunnam stated that growing up, his favorite actors have always been Academy Award winners Daniel Day-Lewis and Sean Penn.

Discovered while clowning around in a shoe shop by a production manager for the British Children's show Byker Grove, Charlie Hunnam was cast in his first role as the long locked child model Jason in three episodes of the show. His first major role came soon after as Nathan Maloney in the Channel 4 drama Queer as Folk (UK). He followed this up with his role as "Daz" in the British film Whatever Happened to Harold Smith?. Upon completion of both projects, Hunnam relocated to Los Angeles, California to pursue his acting career.

His career, meanwhile, expanded to include a recurring role as Gregor Ryder in a TV Series for The WB Network called Young Americans. He then appeared in the short-lived Fox series Undeclared as the British drama student Lloyd Haythe. The series was cancelled after only one season. Following Undeclared, he appeared in Abandon, Nicholas Nickleby (2002), and Cold Mountain.

Hunnam has stated that he does not wish to simply take any role that he is offered "I have 60 years to make the money, but the choices I make in the next five years are really going to define my career.". This decision resulted in his return to the United Kingdom to take the lead as Pete Dunham in Green Street (also known as Green Street Hooligans, Hooligans, and The Yank).

Hunnam played the role of Patric, a member of "The Fishes", in Children of Men (2006) directed by Alfonso Cuarón. Hunnam states that this role was the final part in his "trilogy of mad men." "I played the psycho in Cold Mountain, my character in Green Street is fairly psychotic and now I've got this role."

Hunnam currently stars as Jackson "Jax" Teller in the FX network series, Sons of Anarchy. The Sons of Anarchy has finished its second season. Hunnam's character "Jax" serves as the vice president of a prominent motorcycle club in a small California town.

Hunnam was voted ninth in Elle Girls top 100 sexiest men in 2005.

In 2010, Hunnam is going to participate in both The Last Full Measure, a film with Robert Duvall, Bruce Willis, and Morgan Freeman as well as The Ledge, a layered love story with themes of religious faith costarring Evan Rachel Wood, Peter Sarsgaard, and Terrence Howard. In 2009, Hunnam sold his screenplay, Vlad, to Summit Entertainment with Brad Pitt's Plan B Studios co-producing. The movie is being directed by music video director and photographer Anthony Mandler and will focus on Dracula as a young prince.

Upon his arrival in Los Angeles in 1999, Hunnam met and married actress Katharine Towne, the daughter of screenwriter Robert Towne. They divorced in 2002. He currently has homes in Los Angeles, London, and Boston.
