Top Billing invites you to an exclusive interview with King Arthur star, Charlie Hunnam!
Charlie Hunnam was not Guy Richie’s first choice to play Arthur. There were doubts about his bulk and physicality. So, Hunnam challenged all the competition to a physical bout to decide the role and showed Richie a combative nature which won him the lead.
Fans watch Guy Ritchie movies for his sassy, quick-fire, street cool treatment of whichever subject he’s filming. But to sustain that style, the lead characters needed substance.
Jude Law and Guy Ritchie worked together on the Sherlock films so Law felt he could apply friendly pressure to keep the character of Arthur’s uncle, Vortigern, from being simply a baddy.
For all those who miss The Lord of The Rings Films and can’t wait for a new season of Game of Thrones, King Arthur – Legend of The Sword is just what the doctor ordered.
