Katharine’s Relationship and Marriage to Charlie Hunnam
Charlie Hunnam was 18 when he first met Katharine Towne. The two met at an audition for Dawson’s Creek. Following a whirlwind, three-week romance, the couple decided to take their relationship to the next level by getting married at a chapel in Las Vegas!
Speaking about his marriage in an interview, Charlie said, “The first time I was ever in Vegas I got married, which didn’t turn out that well. I’d known the girl for three weeks, and we’d fallen madly in love, it was the first time I’d ever been in love.”
He further added, “We came to Vegas because, in our 18-year-old minds, we thought, ‘What if we never see each other again? Let’s get married! And then we’ll have to see each other again, even if it’s just to get divorced!’ And so we came to Vegas, but I couldn’t even get a drink! So I didn’t think I was going to actually be able to get married! I thought it was just a lark! But we sort of psyched ourselves into it and then at two o’clock in the morning, we ended up getting married.”
According to the actor, they got married at the Silver Bell Wedding Chapel and their wedding was officiated by Reverend RJ Cotton. Charlie quipped that he had wanted to be married by “The King” but that “Elvis had left the building!” Though he does not have many positive memories about his three year marriage to Katherine Towne, Charlie Hunnam joked that he at least got the cats after their divorce was finalized in 2002!
