From 2008 through 2014, Charlie Hunnam was most recognized for his role as ‘Jax’ Teller in the FX drama series ‘Sons of Anarchy. He received his first major part as Nathan Maloney in the Channel 4 drama ‘Queer as Folk’ after starting his career with the children’s show ‘Byker Grove’ (1998). (1999-2000). He moved to the United States after making his film debut in ‘Whatever Happened to Harold Smith?’ (1999).
Following that, he played Gregor Ryder in the WB series “Young Americans” (2000) and Lloyd Haythe in the critically praised but short-lived Fox series “Undeclared” (2001-02). ‘Abandon’ (2002), ‘Nicholas Nickleby’ (2002), and ‘Cold Mountain’ (2002) are among his films from this period (2003). He returned to the UK after that to play Pete Dunham in the film ‘Green Street Hooligans’ (2005), but his Cockney accent was branded the ‘worst’ in film history. He also appeared in ‘Children of Men,’ a British-American dystopian thriller (2006). He appeared in films such as ‘The Ledge,’ ‘3,2,1… Frankie Go Boom,’ ‘Deadfall,’ and ‘The Lost City of Z,’ all of which were flops. ‘Pacific Rim’ (2013), on the other hand, became a top-grossing film in several countries.

Fawcett is dispatched to London a year later to meet with Royal Geographical Society authorities (RGS).

Fawcett offers to head the survey party in order to rehabilitate his family’s reputation. Fawcett encounters Corporal Henry Costin, an Amazon rain-forest expert, aboard a ship bound for Brazil.
