Charlie Hunnam successfully led the acclaimed Sons of Anarchy Show for seven seasons. But while the show was still on the air, there was one particular plot in the series that Hunnam didn’t agree with. So much so that if he were a writer he would have made a few changes to the show.
“Sons of Anarchy” made Charlie Hunnam’s career
Charlie Hunnam starred in a few films and TV shows before being cast on the hit FX crime drama. But Hunnam recognizes Sons of Anarchy as the program that gave his career a boost.
“Well, honestly, it’s given me a career,” Hunnam said People. “And it gave me the ability to have confidence that I was going to make it [acting] Work as a lifetime career.”
Hunnam also felt his acting was generally limited before starring in his hit series. But thanks to the show, he’s been able to develop his skills over time.
“I think I went in Sons of Anarchy I’m a pretty imperfect actor in terms of my skills,” he continued. “I wasn’t one of those people who was born enormous and naturally talented. I really had to develop a range of skills. And where I’ve cultivated a lot of those skills is working and shooting 10 pages a day Sons of Anarchy for seven years. I feel like that was my college days.”
That Lost City Z Star added that he “went in with very little knowledge of the acting process and knew a little bit more.”
What Charlie Hunnam Would Change About Sons Of Anarchy If He Were A Writer
Hunnam has shown much gratitude for this Sons of Anarchy and the career boost it gave him. But later in the series, he also felt the show wasn’t without its flaws. In an interview, Hunnam shared that he disagreed with some directions of his show. And if he had his way, he would have rewritten key points of the plot.
“I think that [Jax] must assert himself and control his psychotic mother, who has no place to run a motorcycle club. If I was in charge of writing, I would really, really retire that because that’s just a device that never rings true to me,” Hunnam said screen junkies(about today).
Hunnam also said his feelings toward Jax and the show made it difficult to talk about in interviews
“So it’s very frustrating for me sometimes as an actor having to play scenes where I don’t trust the dynamics and I don’t think Jax would ever know how to take orders from his mother or you. So I’m hoping that can be fixed a little bit,” he continued.
Charlie Hunnam on reprising his role as Jax Teller
Sons of Anarchy The legacy was kept alive thanks to the spin-off series on the FX network Mayan’s MC But for some, that might not be enough. That King Arthur actor was asked if he would ever be interested in repeating Jax Teller.
“I would never, ever reverse that cut,” Hunnam once said. “I would never wear his rings again. Not even on Halloween.”
Still, Hunnam looks back fondly on his time as Jax.
“It was a very deep experience,” he continued. “I’ve lived with this character inside of me for years, in a very real way. In a way that manifested in a way I never could [have] conceited.”
