the arthur legends


I’ve heard legends were circling in the minds of the curious ones, 

I’ve heard them all so for once let me tell you mine. 

 Thirteen years old I was when, 

I got marry to this legendary man. 

Arthur was his name, 

A name soon to be ashamed. 

Into the wild he found me, 

And fell in love head over heels.

 I swear, he could do anything, 

Just to keep me near. 

 He made me fall so strong, 

Nothing else I was craving for, 

Just a little touch of his warm, 

Manly hands to get rid of the cold. 

He captivated me, 

Enchanted me, 

I opened up my heart, 

And combined it with his.

Days went by peacefully, 

Until I met someone dear, 

A friend of my king, 

Somehow I found him next to me, 

Falling helplessly. 

Running on extremes. 

My heart used to certain, 

Was simply moving away from thee. 

I was a lady of his heart, 

He fought in the name of love. 

They called him the greatest knight, 

With powers beyond kings minds. 

Every great deed, 

He’s done thinking of me. 

I prayed this to stop, 

But I decided to break three hearts.

Charlie Hunnam was emaciated and had lost 20 pounds for the last season of Sons of Anarchy (2008). During auditions, Guy Ritchie was very bothered by his look though he liked his performance and asked him 4 times during the process about his poor physique and ‘What was the heaviest he had been’. Hunnam said that when Ritchie brought up the 4th time, he knew that the physicality of Arthur was very important to Ritchie. He promised Ritchie that he would get into incredible shape for Arthur and to prove his fitness for the part, offered to physically fight the other two finalists - Henry Cavill and Jai Courtney. Hunnam told Ritchie, “Look, dude, you keep bring this up, the physicality. Its obviously your primary concern. So if you want to do away with all this auditioning bollocks, I’ll fucking fight those other two dudes. I know who they are. You can bring them both in here. I’ll fight them both. The one who walks out the door gets the job.” Hunnam won the role after this.
