“I wouldn’t have signed up in the first place if I didn’t want to do it. It was a really, really difficult time in my life,” Hunnam said. He actually had a pleasant meeting with director Sam Taylor-Johnson. “Sam and I just fell in love, creatively. We started talking about this thing and I just felt so excited. I fell in love with the character and started seeing him and becoming intoxicated, which is the way I work: I find a character I love and I start thinking about it all the time,” he said.
