British actor Charlie Hunnam says he's
“game” for a Queer as Folk reunion.
The 37-year-old Hunnam played Nathan
Maloney in the 1999 British series about three gay men living in
Manchester. In the United States, Hunnam is best known for playing
Jackson “Jax” Teller in the FX drama Sons of Anarchy. He
stars as the title character in the fantasy film King Arthur:
Legend of the Sword.
“I'd be game for a reunion,” Hunnam
told UK tabloid The
Sun. “It's a long time ago, I'm an old bitch now – that
was 20 years ago.”
“When I'm back in England, people
still recognize me as Nathan,” he added, pointing to the show's
influence on gay culture.
“It was the beginning of my career,
so I have very fond memories of it. I'm very proud of being a part
of that show. I'm very happy when people bring it up,” Hunnam
added. “I'm just surprised because it was so long ago.”
In 2000, Showtime premiered its own
version of Queer as Folk based on the Channel 4 series. It
lasted five seasons.
