Personal Quote:

[on whether being a sex symbol is limiting] It's both collateral damage and a huge opportunity. It's a visual medium, and it makes it a lot easier to get roles if you're easier on the eyes. But the reality is you get on set and every scene is a challenge to make work. See more »

Trivia:

Discovered on Christmas Eve in the shoe department of a JD Sports store in his hometown by a production manager from the TV series Byker Grove (1989). After Charlie had impishly flirted with the woman, she asked him to audition for the series where he landed a supporting role. See more »
