‘Sons of Anarchy’ season 5: Charlie Hunnam on Jax, Clay relationship

So how realistic did Charlie Hunnam want to make the scenes between Jax and Clay at the end of “Sons of Anarchy” season 5? Let’s just say that as we reached the closing episodes of the show this year, the actor did not want anything to do to with his co-star in Ron Perlman, even if the two parties are actually pretty great friends in real life and have even worked together on other projects.

Should Hunnam have told Perlman that he was going to cut him off? Possibly, but the actor did his best to explain his process in a new interview with Entertainment Weekly as a part of their cover story:

“I decided as difficult as it was going to be, I wasn’t going to talk with him, not even say good morning to him and not tell him why I was doing it … I just hoped he would understand, to know that it was just about work and that it wasn’t anything personal.”

Hunnam said that Perlman finally got the hint about just what he was up to while the two parties were shooting the final episodes of the season, as he had read an interview where the actor explained that he wanted his scenes with Jax and Clay to feel authentic rather than forced. It’s not very often that you here of an actor going to such great lengths in order to make a scene appear to be real; but when the results are as fantastic as they have been here thus far, it’s rather hard to argue against it.

What do you think about the way Hunnam used method acting here to an extent to make his version of Jax believable?
