So when you tell your friends and family you are about to bare your ass in Fifty Shades, what do you think that they would say? Well when Charlie Hunnam told his co-stars on Sons of Anarchy… they were like huh, what?
“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?” says Maggie Siff, who plays Jax’s savvy wife Tara. “And then talked to him seriously about it. I think he’s very brave to it. He doesn’t do anything unless he feels it deep down. He’s not going to do something because all of his agents are telling him to do something. That’s what makes me think it stands a chance of being really, really great. If he has that conviction going in, then you know it’ll be great.”Katey Sagal (Gemma) had additional words of praise for Hunnam. “I’m really proud of him,” she told EW. “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.” Creator Kurt Sutter echoed the sentiment for his young star. “We’re thrilled for Charlie. He works hard, constantly challenges himself and his craft. He is a star, in all the right ways.”
