Charlie Hunnam Entertainment Weekly Cover

Charlie Hunnam Admits He's "Probably Not What Everybody Imagined" For Christian Grey

Charlie Hunnam and his Sons of Anarchy costars are on the cover of this week's Entertainment Weekly, but the stars of the FX show couldn't help but address Hunnam's other role: Christian in Fifty Shades of Grey. In the article, Hunnam talks about his awareness of the fan expectations and how seriously he's taking the character, but it's also fun to hear from his SOA costars, who are so used to seeing him as the rugged Jax. Read on to find out what everybody said.

  • Hunnam knows he doesn't exactly look like the Christian of the book: "There are so many fans of that book and I know that on the surface, I'm probably not what everybody imagined."
  • And he knows he has to look good as Christian: "I'm taking it very seriously and intend to explore the nature of who this character is, what motivates him—and also dress up nice and look good in those suits."
  • His costars were shocked when they heard the casting: Maggie Siff (who plays Tara, Jax's wife) said, "When he told me that it was happening or that he was considering it I just howled. I mean I think we all did. We're all like, what?" Katey Sagal, meanwhile, said, "I'm really proud of him. The choice was not an obvious one for him. But for good or bad, he will throw himself 100 percent in. I don't know if I want to see all that, but maybe." And Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter said, "We're thrilled for Charlie. He works hard, constantly challenges himself and his craft. He is a star, in all the right ways."
