Michelle and her sister Annette got the royal treatment. How was their round table with Charlie Hunnam at the premiere of King Arthur: Legend of the Sword? Read on and find out!
So how was it?
Ahh, it was amazing! It couldn’t have gone any better. We stayed at Hever Castle where Anne Boleyn lived, which was beautiful. I think all day before the premiere I just had butterflies in my stomach. I was just filled with excitement and nerves just because we were going to meet Charlie Hunnam!
How was it meeting him?
To my surprise, if you can imagine, as soon as I met him my nerves quickly subsided. He’s got a very down-to-earth and kind personality that just makes you feel so comfortable and welcome. He has such a great smile and positive attitude that he brings to the room that it felt like I was talking to someone I had known for years. It was great. We went and grabbed a drink and spent time with him. We both have a liking of gin and tonics so we all ordered that. But the time that we had with him went beyond what we had expected.
What did you talk to Charlie Hunnam about?
We discovered that we both enjoy hiking. We just laughed the whole time, and it flew by, especially when you’re having fun. I just wish it could have lasted longer. It was really nice. He asked us about ourselves like where we were from and if it was our first time visiting London. We talked about the castle we were staying at and England history. We were just laughing the whole time. There was just so much, it all just flowed very well.
And how was the premiere?
It was just such a thrill to be actually walking down a red carpet. We saw David Beckham inside the movie theater which was really neat. The movie itself is a must see, we really enjoyed it. The night couldn’t have been any better.
Was there a highlight moment?
Oh, definitely meeting Charlie. I feel like he’s just like Jax on Sons of Anarchy, badass but with this soft interior. He’s very kind. Everything that I thought or perceived of him before. He made us feel very comfortable and welcome. It was just such an incredible experience and we’ll really cherish it forever.
