Sons of Anarchy Exclusive: Winter Ave Zoli on Problems Ahead for Lyla & Opie

at . Comments

Lyla and Opie got married on the fourth season premiere of Sons of Anarchy. But there's a certain aborted secret between the pair that will create major tension later this fall.

They'll "definitely be dealing with their relationship and their issues," Winter Ave Zoli told me over the phone, offering little more about how Lyla's abortion and Opie's hopes for another child will come to the forefront on a future episode.

Lyla and Opie

Zoli didn't think she'd even be on the show at this point. She was initially brought in as a guest star for two weeks, maximum. But the actress said Kurt Sutter approached her about a relationship with Opie that might lead to additional five episodes. That was many episode ago.

Now, she shares almost all of her scenes with Ryan Hurst, who Zoli describes as "a gentle soul and a very nice guy."

She also finds herself in a controversial storyline, even for Sons of Anarchy, which has never shied away from pushing the envelope way over any and all television cliffs.

"It was kind of risky they did the [abortion," Zoli says, admitting that she didn't think too much about it because the decision does align with her beliefs and, simply put: "It happens in real life."

Sons of Anarchy airs a new episode tomorrow night. Check out the official promo for "Una Venta" NOW.

Sons of Anarchy Quotes

Something happens at around 92 miles an hour - thunder-headers drown out all sound, engine vibrations travels at a heart's rate, field of vision funnels into the immediate and suddenly you're not on the road, you're in it. A part of it. Traffic, scenery, cops - just cardboard cutouts blowing over as you past. Sometimes I forget the rush of that. That's why I love these long runs. All your problems, all the noise, gone. Nothing else to worry about except what's right in front of you. Maybe that's the lesson for me today, to hold on to these simple moments. Appreciate them a little more - there's not many of them left. I don't ever want that for you. Finding things that make you happy shouldn't be so hard. I know you'll face pain, suffering, hard choices, but you can't let the weight of it choke the joy out of your life. No matter what, you have to find the things that love you. Run to them. There's an old saying, 'That what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger' I don't believe that. I think the things that try to kill you make you angry and sad. Strength comes from the good things - your family, your friends, the satisfaction of hard work. Those are the things that'll keep you whole. Those are the things to hold on to when you're broken.


We don't know who we are until we're connected to someone else. We're just better human beings when with the person we're supposed to be with. I wasn't supposed to leave...I belong here.
