Charlie Hunnam keen to join cast of Game Of Thrones. Sons Of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam has revealed he was once offered a role on Game Of Thrones. Actor Charlie Hunnam has said he would love to join the cast of the fantasy series Game of Thrones despite having been forced to initially turn down an offer.
The 37-year-old actor has revealed that he previously declined the chance to appear in the popular HBO series because of scheduling conflicts.
He told The Sun: “I would love to do a Game Of Thrones cameo, they offered me a cameo on that show a little while ago but I was shooting something else so I wasn’t able to do it but maybe in the future, who knows.”
Hunnam was recently spotted hanging out with Marilyn Manson at the London premiere of King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword.On the red carpet Manson told Entertainment Tonight: “We’re strangely like brothers. I don’t have a lot of close men friends at my ’round table’ so to speak. I don’t even have a table. But Charlie and I always cook food for each other.”
Hunnam added: “He came in and did a couple of episodes – maybe like five or six – and we just became pals. We’re an unlikely duo but we love each other.”
Speaking about the movie and Guy Ritchie’s directing methods, he told The Sun: “It was quite a steep learning curve for me because Guy is absolutely sensational at working in real time but he is equally bad at doing any sort of preparation.
“I’m very nervous about the process, especially at the beginning I like to talk everything through and he’d be like ‘don’t worry about that, we will figure it out on the day’.
“What was wonderful about it was it pushed me to be fluid and be really immediate in the process and ultimately the one mandate he gave me early on is ‘we have to have fun’.”
Game Of Thrones is set to return to screens on July 16, when it will be broadcast at the same time as it premieres in the US.
