When Sons of Anarchy ended after its 7th season, much of the world was in dismay. Where now would they get their fix of gritty, motorcycle gang crime drama? Further, where would the world get its Shakespearean-influenced motorcycle gang crime drama?
Nicknamed “The Hamlet of Harleys,” Sons of Anarchy was a massive hit. Numerous cast members won TCA, Satellite, and Golden Globe Awards, to name a few. It scored an 87% on Rotten Tomatoes and also has 8.6 stars out of 10 on IMDb. But what happened to the fabulous gang, and all its lovers and enemies? Read on to find out where the Sons of Anarchy cast is now.
Charlie Hunnam: Jax Teller
Let’s start with Jax, Sons of Anarchy’s main protagonist, leader, and moral compass of the Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club Redwood Original (SAMCRO).
Charlie Hunnam has been busy working on Shantaram. It’s a 12-episode series produced and starring nonother than Hunnam. Shantaram will be available for streaming Friday, October 14, on Peacock.
Hunnam wanted to make a movie about the best-selling novel, Shantaram, for years, but Warner Brothers initially beat him to the rights. They wanted to make a film adaptation of the story, starring Johnny Depp. But they couldn’t figure out how to fit the entire 900-page story into a feature-length film. So, when Warner Brothers finally gave up, Hunnam jumped on the opportunity to fulfill his dream.
Hunnam keeps his personal life pretty private and accordingly doesn’t use social media. He enjoys organic gardening and has a ranch property with many animals outside of Hollywood. He lives there and runs his ranch with his girlfriend of 17 years, Morgana McNelis.
Dayton Callie: Wayne Unser
Callie played the Chief of the Charming Police Department. Callie went on to play Jeremiah Otto in Fear the Walking Dead in 2016 and 2017. He’s also stayed busy appearing in several movies, most recently the TV movie Deadwood (based on the Deadwood TV series, which he was also in) and a fantasy called Table 13. The To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! actor has seemed to be laying low, lately. His IMDb doesn’t have any new projects but considering he was born in 1946 and has had a successful career already, we’re guessing he might not mind.
Drea de Matteo: Wendy Case
De Matteo played Jax’s ex-wife and the mother of his oldest son, Abel. She played Adriana La Cerva in The Sopranos, Angie Bolen in Desperate Housewives, and more recently, Maya in Paradise City.
De Matteo recently promoted her new movie, One Way. It’s part I of a two-part thriller movie series, the second named Collide. One Way came out August 31 in theaters and is available for streaming.
