Charlie Hunnam has revealed that he once turned down Game of Thrones and, naturally, regrets it now.
He at least gets to wield a sword – and not just any sword, but Excalibur – in his new movie King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, but he could have been doing it in Westeros before now.
“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 told The Sun.
Well, with only two seasons to go and one of them already filmed, he better start talking to HBO now if he wants a season eight role.
Game of Thrones isn’t the only franchise Hunnam could have been a part of as he also turned down Fifty Shades of Grey, describing it as the “most emotionally destructive and difficult thing” he’s had to do in his career.
“I developed a friendship with [director Sam Taylor[director Sam Taylor[director Sam Taylor-Johnson]rience for me. I didn’t want to open that wound,” he explained earlier this year.
And he’s also been busy ruling himself out of being the next James Bond.
“I can say two things. I’m English, and I look devilishly handsome in a suit. I can say three things. Nobody has called me about playing James Bond, so I’m pretty sure that’s not going to happen,” he noted.
King Arthur: Legend of the Sword is out now in the US and is released in UK cinemas on May 17.
