He is also known for his roles in Queer as Folk, Undeclared, Crimson Peak, The Gentleman, Triple Frontier, Green Street, and many more.
Who Was Charlie Hunnam’s Wife?
Charlie Hunnam’s wife was American actress Katharine Towne. Katharine is known for her roles in What Lies Beneath (2000), Evolution (2001), and Mulholland Drive (2001).
She was born on July 17, 1978, in Hollywood, Los Angeles, California. Her parents are Robert Towne and Julie Payne.
Her father Robert is a famed screenwriter who is known for his works in Chinatown (1974), Shampoo (1975), Days of Thunder (1990), and Mission: Impossible franchise (1996, 2000).
Charlie met Katharine while auditioning for Dawson’s Creek. Their first meeting turned into a relationship soon and they got married after dating for only three weeks.
Everything in their relationship happened fast including the divorce. Charlie and his ex-wife Katherine got married on 25 July 1999 and got separated three years later. They were divorced in 2002.
The estranged pair eloped before Charlie had to go back to his home in England. They tied the knot in Vegas in front of Silver Bell Wedding Chapel’s Reverend RJ Cotton at 2 A.M.
While talking about his marriage during an interview with US Weekly in 2017, Charlie described it as “three terrible years.”
“First time I was ever in Vegas I got married, which didn’t turn out that well. I had known the girl for three weeks. We had fallen madly in love and it was the first time I had ever been in love.”
He also talked about the end result of marriage saying,
“Three terrible, painful, expensive years. I got the cats at the end of it, so that was good. There was a small victory.”
Who Is Charlie Hunnam’s Partner?
Although Charlie had experienced a failed marriage in the past, he is now relishing a blissful relationship with his longtime girlfriend-tuned partner, Morgana McNelis.
His girlfriend Morgana is a jewelry designer and actress by profession. She has appeared in short movies like Acting 101 and 187: The McKenna Murders.
She owns a jewelry brand named Maison de Morgana. She has shared her jewelry designs on her Instagram page.
Morgana also has her own website where she sells her products.
Dating Life: How Did They Meet?
According to reports, Charlie met the love of his life, Morgana, through her business. The duo then began dating in 2005. Since then, they have been enjoying a blissful romance keeping their relationship out of the public eye.
However, Charlie has talked about his relationship with his lady love in his interviews.
Charlie kept his relationship with his girlfriend private until 2014 but when the public knew about their dating life, Morgana received many hate comments and trolls for her looks.
Charlie, being a supportive and loyal boyfriend, defended Morgana through a Facebook post in 2016, which is now deleted. As per Entertainment Weekly, he wrote,
“She is an intelligent, beautiful, kind person who just tried to live a simple life and has nothing to do with the entertainment industry. If you want to talk s**t, talk s**t about me, leave her out of it. This is a girl I love very much and have spent the last 11 years of my life with and hope to spend the next 60 years.”
Charlie and Morgana have now been together for 17 years. In between these years, they rarely attended public events together.
Even though Charlie is not on social media, Morgana once shared a picture with Charlie from their vacation to India. She shared a picture with Charlie celebrating Holi in India in March 2019.
Any Plans For Wedding?
Charlie and his partner Morgana have been in a relationship for around 17 years so their fans have wondered whether they will ever get married or not.
Charlie was also asked about his plans of getting married by Andy Cohen in his 2020 interview to which he revealed that he is “sort of indifferent” about tying the knot. However, Morgan doesn’t feel the same and is eager to become a bride.
Later, he told TooFab that his comments about marriage were “stupid” which really hurt his girlfriend’s feelings. He clarified his statement by saying,
“I know I gotta say, that really hurt my girlfriend’s feelings and I really regretted saying that. I actually didn’t mean it at all, it was, frankly, just stupid s— I said in the heat of the moment.”
He further said that he considers himself married. He explained,
“I’m, like, so romantic, and the reality is I sort of consider myself married. I’ve been with my girlfriend for 14 years. I suppose what I was trying to articulate the official government sanction of it doesn’t mean anything to me but the romance of it means an enormous amount.”
“I really regret saying that. But listen, you spend 12 hours a day for three days doing interviews straight, you’re going to say stupid s—, especially a guy like me that’s not that smart.”
Regardless, Charlie has been expressing his love for his girlfriend through his interviews and giving insight into their relationship with fans. We wish Charlie and his GF Morgana the best for what’s to come!

The actor explained,
"There's not a day that goes by that I don't think about them... as is my girlfriend. We're in the first generation that's intellectualizing it rather than just going on pure primordial instinct.
