For many, actor Charlie Hunnam will always be synonymous for his role as Jackson ‘Jax’ Teller in the television show Sons of Anarchy. Since that show ended in 2014, he has delved into the film industry with roles in movies such as Pacific Rim, Crimson Peak, The Lost City of Z and Papillon which is about to be released in the United States. In an interview with Collider, Charlie Hunnam had the opportunity to speak about the movie.
Here is what Charlie Hunnam had to say about how grateful he is to have committed to Papillon in the way that he did:
“I’m really glad. To me, it’s just all about the process, about how I spend my time, and if I feel nourished, day-to-day. I was born a bit of an existential fuck, so I think, as we all do, that there’s an enormous amount of suffering involved in the human experience. You’ve got to figure out a way to balance the scale.”
“When I’m working on something that I’m really excited and passionate about, I just feel deeply fulfilled. It’s why I don’t ever really like to watch a film after. I like the experience to exist in a pure way, in my mind. Watching a film breaks that spell because I look at it from the outside, as opposed to having the experience of it from the inside.”
As I said earlier, Sons of Anarchy has been a big part of Charlie Hunnam’s career and one of his co-stars in that show was Tommy Flanagan who also has a role in Papillon. This is what Charlie Hunnam revealed about whether he was in any responsible for having Tommy Flanagan join Papillon:
“The idea was brought up to me, and then I got it over the line. I just wanted to work with Tommy, time and time again. I’ve always said the film that I want to write, which I haven’t written yet because it’s been a long incubation period, but it’s a project that I would love to do, there’s just been no money, is a tiny little love story, set in the north of England and I’ve always dreamt that Tommy would star in, if I ever got my act together to direct that film. That’s always been the dream. He’s definitely one of the tribe members of my little creative team.”
