Morgana McNelis is dating Charlie Hunnam, but the discreet businesswoman is rarely seen with her boyfriend on the red carpet.
As Hunnam’s show, Sons of Anarchy , debuts its final season, learn more about the woman behind the actor.
1. She’s Been Dating Charlie Since 2007

Sons of Anarchy premiered a year after they started dating, so McNelis may be breathing a sigh of relief now that the show is over and she can spend some quality time with the English heartthrob.
And since the actor exited the Fifty Shades of Grey movie adaption, he won’t be busy filming the movie.
Referring to his newfound time off, Hunnam recently told Us Weekly, ‘I’d like to sort my life out a bit. I want to continue working hard, but I’d love to sleep, hang out with my girlfriend and cook!”
2. She’s a Jeweler
Her company, Maison De Morgana, has the above reel on its website to showcase the brand.
Celebrity fans of the accessories include Winona Ryder and Maggie Siff, Hunnam’s costar on SOA.
Hunnam is a supporter himself, and donned his lady’s bling for his GQ cover photo shoot, shown below.

On the company’s website, she explained her craft, saying, “Quality is paramount for me. It’s not enough for my jewelry to be beautiful and unique, I want it to hold its value. In 20 years, I want women to still be wearing the jewelry they buy today.”
Her Twitter handle, @maisondemorgana contains this profile quote, “Eclectic jewelry designed and inspired for daydreamers and make believers.”
3. They Have 30 Chickens
The couple recently bought a ranch in California, and SF Gate reported that he will live there full time with McNelis.
I don’t go to parties – I don’t shuck (sic) and jive it up with the Hollywood crowd. None of that crap interests me at all, and actually, my girlfriend and I just bought a ranch, so we are getting out of Hollywood completely. It’s in California. We’ve got 30 chickens and a couple of donkeys, a couple of ducks and we’ve got a big, organic garden. We are going to try to live a bit more sustainably.
4. She Doesn’t Like the Spotlight
Your Tango reported that at Hunnam’s Pacific Rim premiere, she was there, but chose not to walk the red carpet.
However, she does seem to enjoy hanging out with actors.

5. Her Boyfriend Was Married Before
For three years, Hunnam was married to Katharine Towne, an actress he met when he auditioned for Dawson’s Creek.
According to imdb, the pair only knew each for three weeks before tying the knot.
