I am not ashamed to admit that I had no idea who Charlie Hunnam was before watching Sons of Anarchy. I heard people talk about him but I had no interest in another actor that I felt at the time wouldn’t go very far. This isn’t to say that he wouldn’t but because I had never heard of him, to me it was a safe bet that he wouldn’t be much of anything in the public eye. Boy, was I wrong!
Before Sons of Anarchy, I had no idea what Charlie had done before the show even started. He became an overnight hit with the ladies, as his long blonde hair flowed from the wind while riding his motorcycle. But, what did he do before? He was in a show called Queer as Folk. He has a young gay boy looking for love, this was a far cry from the role he portrayed in Sons of Anarchy. There is definitely something to be said about a man that can play a role as a gay teen, to the role of a badass biker.
Below are some pictures of Charlie Hunnam during his time in Queer as Folk. I personally think he was really hot even back then. Let us know what your thoughts are on Charlie Hunnam before he became Jax Teller in the comments below.
