After shaving his signature "Sons of Anarchy" beard, Charlie Hunnam is making a lot of noise for his upcoming new movie "Crimson Peak" with "Pacific Rim" director Guillermo del Toro and "Thor" star Tom Hiddleston. The two actors reportedly created a stir in Hamilton while filming the period film as fans flocked the location to get a glimpse of the Hollywood hunks.

Autumn Ryan and Laura Couture, fans of both actors, took a break from their busy lives and took advantage of the situation as they met two of Tinseltown's dreamboats. Fans of Hunnam and Hiddleston have been gushing online how accommodating the actors are as they posted their pictures with them.
Best known for his role as Jax Teller in FX biker drama series, Hunnam has a devoted following of fans who supported his career throughout the years. On the other hand, Tom Hiddleston made a name for himself when he was cast as Loki in "Thor" and "The Avengers."
"Hearing that they've been coming out and meeting fans ... it really kind of inspired me," says Ryan who drove from Ohio and cross the border just to have a once in a lifetime experience to meet the celebrities. "This might be my chance to finally get to meet Tom Hiddleston."
Carl Dixon, another fan who drove down to the York Boulevard landmark wasn't very lucky when he checked out the set Tuesday until he heard that the cast was in Bayfront Park to sign some autographs. Together with a friend, whom he invited on a whim, got to the park and was treated with Hunnam as he came out and said hello.
He was "absolutely amazing," says the 27 year-old fan in an interview with Northumberland News. "He was a super nice guy. He took the time to call people over, ask how they're doing."
The cast and crew of the film are currently shooting Hamilton's heritage properties after they filmed a few scenes at Dundurn Castle. Together with Jessica Chastain, Mia Wasikowska, Benecio del Toro and Jim Beaver, the crew took over the city's Queen Street to shoot inside the Scottish Rite.
"Sons of Anarchy" season 7 is scheduled to kick off on September.
