Drea de Matteo Promoted to Sons of Anarchy Series Regular

at . Comments

Following the shocking event that concluded Sons of Anarchy Season 6, it's nice to know at least one of Jax's kids will still have his birth mother around.

According to TV Line, Drea de Matteo has been promoted to series regular for the show's final run of episodes.

She has recurred as Jax's drug-addicted ex (and Abel's real mom) since the series debuted.

Tara (SPOILER ALERT!), of course, was killed by Gemma to end SOA last season, making it likely that Wendy will play a large role in both Abel and Thomas' life going forward.

If she can remain clean and sober, that is.

The character spent a bulk of Season 6 teaming with Tara and then suffering from the effects of her addiction.

Sons of Anarchy Season 7, meanwhile, will kick off in the fall of 2014.

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.
