Charlie Hunnam

With his irresistible charm, Charlie Hunnam captured the attention of audiences and critics in the United Kingdom and is now poised to take on Hollywood. Hunnam was last seen starring with Elijah Wood in the independent film Hooligans, which follows two friends in London who descend into the violent world of soccer hooliganism.

Prior to that, the young actor was seen as Bosie in the Miramax feature Cold Mountain for director Anthony Minghella. The movie, which was based on the best-selling novel by Charles Frazier, enjoyed a Golden Globe nomination for Best Picture. He also starred in the title role in the big screen adaptation of Charles Dickens' novel Nicholas Nickleby, which was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Picture. He was also seen in the Paramount thriller Abandon.

Hunnam received audience and critical acclaim for his role in the hit British drama Queer as Folk. In this show about two gay friends, Hunnam played the role of Nathan, a lovestruck 15-year-old on the lookout for older men. Hunnam reprised the role in the follow-up television mini-series Queer as Folk 2, which was regarded as one of the best sequels ever put to the television screen. He also starred in the critically acclaimed Fox series Undeclared for Judd Apatow, playing a suave theater major from Britain who enlightened his roommate about the mystical world of women.

On the big screen, Hunnam played the role of Daz in Peter Hewitt's Whatever Happened to Harold Smith? for USA Films. The movie, set in the '70s in Northern England, follows the metamorphosis of a young man from disco to punk and examines the relationships he shares with his friends and his father, who strangely begins to demonstrate telekinetic powers.

Hunnam got his start on the BBC teen drama series Byker Grove. Following that, he moved on to the BBC and Disney collaboration Microsoap.
