In a recent interview with Men’s Journal, Charlie’s ‘Jungleland‘ co-star Jack O’Connell spoke about what it was like working with Charlie while filming and their relationship. You can check out what Jack had to say below:
What was it like working with Charlie Hunnam?
Charlie is a great collaborator. When you’re playing a brother, it’s always best to feel like you have an open channel with the other person. I don’t have a brother, so I had to guess at it, but I really wanted that feeling that there was nothing off-limits between us. That’s what Charlie and I had. I was really glad he was the one I got to do it with.
Did you guys train together at all?
I believe you have to spend time together off set if you want [the chemistry] to look good on the camera. We made sure to spend some good time together. Charlie is a jiu-jitsu guy, so every time we would walk into the gym, he would start rolling immediately, trying to get some holds on me. But I had to ask him to stand up for starters at least. [Laughs]. I don’t mind taking it to the ground, but I don’t want to step into his realm right off the bat.
