Before Charlie Hunnam found US success with the likes of Sons Of Anarchy and Pacific Rim he was Nathan, the Manchester teenager first finding his way in the gay world in the seminal TV show, Queer As Folk. That was 18-years-ago now, but while doing the promotional rounds for his new movie, King Arthur, Hunnam has suggested he wouldn’t be averse to a bit of a reunion.
The 37-year-old actor tells The Sun, “I’d be game for a reunion. It’s a long time ago, I’m an old b****** now – that was 20 years ago. When I’m back in England, people still recognize me as Nathan. 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.”
There’s already been a mini reunion, as Aiden Gillen, who played Stuart in Queer As Folk, also appears in King Arthur. Hunnam says of him, “I always felt like I owed him a grand debt of gratitude. I really thanked him for the impact he had on me. He thought I was mad but I felt it deeply.”
Unfortunately there’s been no word that any more Queer As Folk might really happen, and the show’s creator, Russell T. Davies, has previously suggested he feels the story is completed and he’s not particularly interested in going back to Stuart, Nathan and Vince. You never know though, and maybe Hunnam’s interest might make him and others think again.
