English actor and screenwriter Charlie Hunnam has a net worth of $20 million. His performance as biker Jax Teller on the FX series “Sons of Anarchy” garnered him acclaim and multiple Emmy Award nominations.
In addition to his roles in “Nicholas Nickleby” (2002) and “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword” (2017), Hunnam has been in “Queer as Folk” and “Undeclared.” Charlie is best known for acting, but before winning his role on “Sons of Anarchy,” he sold his screenplay, “Vlad,” to Summit Entertainment and Brad Pitt’s Plan B Studios.
English actor Charlie Hunnam was born Charles Matthew Hunnam on April 10, 1980, in Newcastle upon Tyne. His father, William (who passed away in 2013), sold scrap metal and abandoned the family when Charlie was just two years old. His mother, Jane, is a business owner and former ballet dancer.
William was his eldest sibling, and he also had two half-brothers, Oliver and Christian, as he was growing up. When Jane remarried, Charlie Hunnman and his new stepfather relocated to Melmerby, Cumbria. Hunnam’s adolescence was marked by a diagnosis of dyslexia, the onset of mysophobia (also known as germophobia), and active social life that included rugby and fights with peers.
After being kicked out of Queen Elizabeth Grammar School for fighting, Charlie was forced to educate himself at home. He ultimately decided to major in theater at the Cumbria College of Art and Design rather than continue his education at a university. He completed film school with the aspiration of one day directing and writing his own movies.
After meeting at an audition for “Dawson’s Creek,” where they both eventually got roles, Charlie wed actress Katharine Towne in 1999 and they later separated in 2002. In 2005, Hunnam started dating artist Morgana McNelis; in 2016, Charlie had to publicly ask his followers to stop harassing McNelis when some of them started posting hateful comments about her online.
After two years of training under former Pan American Champion Rigan Machado, Hunnam attained the rank of blue belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu in 2018. Some of his favorite spots are Northern England’s countryside and the state of California, and he has even expressed a desire to one day settle down on a farm.
In 2019, Hunnam battled a slew of health problems, including a lung infection, strep throat, a bacterial gut infection, and dengue fever, all while filming the Apple+ series “Shantaram” in India (which he contracted after being bitten by a mosquito).
