Morgana McNelis has been Charlie Hunnam’s long-term girlfriend. They are a very private couple, but their decades-long romance is one of the most endearing.
Hunnam met McNelis through her jewelry business and began dating her in 2005. However, the couple did not make their relationship public until 2014.
Later, McNelis became the target of online slander after it was revealed that she was Hunnam’s girlfriend. But the actor defended his sweetheart.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Hunnam stated in a since-deleted Facebook post in 2016 that his girlfriend is an intelligent, beautiful, and kind woman who has tried to live a simple life and has nothing to do with the entertainment industry.
Likewise, the actor added, “if you want to say something bad, then talk about me instead, not her. I have loved McNelis deeply for the past 11 years and hope to spend the next 60 years with this girl.”
Moreover, McNelis shared a photo of herself and Charlie celebrating Holi, an Indian festival, in March 2019. The two were decked out in bright paint, as is customary for the occasion.
Charlie Hunnam’s girlfriend, Morgana McNelis, is a jewelry designer.
McNelis has a jewelry line called Maison de Morgana. Her Instagram page is mainly dedicated to her jewelry designs, with a few photos of her and Hunnam. She even has a website for her products, which is set to launch soon.
During a 2012 interview with ELLE, McNelis’ boyfriend revealed that she had also made a diamond-encrusted ring for him.
In addition, McNelis is an actress, and she was in several short films, including 187: The McKenna Murders and Acting 101. However, McNelis is well known to the world as the girlfriend of Hunnam.
Morgana McNelis and Charlie Hunnam are supportive of each other
McNelis has been a long-time supporter of Hunnam’s career. McNelis was overjoyed for her boyfriend when he accepted the role of Christian Grey in Fifty Shades of Grey in 2013.
The actor told People that his girlfriend is very supportive. He said, “she was very excited about the potential of this opportunity for me, and I believe it will bring us closer together.” He also added, “Being with an actor is difficult. It required to share parts of me that she wouldn’t really want to share.”

Furthermore, Hunnam is equally supportive of his girlfriend and goes out of his way to show her how much he values her. The actor told People at the 2020 Toronto International Film Festival, “Before leaving for TIFF, I wound up staying up until five in the morning.”
“Because I made the decision to handle all of the household cleaning, grocery shopping, and laundry, which are tasks that we regularly share.”
He continued, “I thought it would be nice for her to return home with everything in order.”

They met while auditioning for Dawson’s Creek, and they only dated for three weeks before marrying in Las Vegas and divorced three years later.
The actor described his marriage to Towne as three terrible years. After his divorce, Hunnam had relationships with model Sophie Dahl, actress Stella Parker, and film producer Georgina Townsley. But none of those relationships lasted — until McNelis entered his life.
