Charlie Hunnam still has a packed schedule, despite dropping out of the highly-anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey film adaptation.

Hunnam made his first public appearance since leaving the production the other night at an event to benefit the One Heart Source Education Programs in Africa. Of course, the press covering the charity event had to ask him about his life post-Fifty Shades.

E! quotes him as saying, "I am doing good. I am just really concentrating on work. It's been a really busy time/ "I have had some family stuff going on so just trying to stay focused and stay positive and keep trying to do a good job at work and be with my family and stay positive."

E! reports Hunnam's father died earlier this year and Hunnam has been visiting England to be with his family. "I've got some family stuff I have to tend to. So when I wrap [Sons of Anarchy], I am going to go to England and see my people and then I have a film that I am doing with Guillermo [del Toro]. So I am going to go and do that and concentrate on the final seasons of Sons."

That film with del Toro isn't a Pacific Rim sequel - at least not yet. He's first teaming up with the director again for thriller Crimson Peak.

Hunnam and his fellow Sons of Anarchy cast members raised $90,000 that night to help African children get an education.
