Charlie started off on the other side of the pond when at 18-years-old he made a guest appearance on the popular British TV series Byker Grove. That led to the role of Nathan Maloney on Queer as Folk, Gregor Ryder on Young Americans and Lloyd Haythe on Undeclared before donning his leather jacket with the Sons of Anarchy.

2. Katey Sagal (Gemma Teller)

Katey Sagal (Gemma Teller)
This incredibly talented actress/singer can actually be scene going all the way back to playing a secretary on Columbo and then as Jo Tucker on the short lived series Mary before becoming the iconic Peg Bundy on Fox's Married with Children for which she received three Golden Globe nominations. We can't imagine what Gemma Teller would think if she ran into Peg Bundy!

3. Tommy Flanagan (Chibs)

Tommy Flanagan (Chibs)
Originally from Glasgow, Scotland, Tommy has a slew of TV guest appearances. You may have seen him on Bad Boys, 24, LIe to Me, Detroit 1-8-7, and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit before finally finding his way to Charming.

4. Kim Coates (Alex 'Tig" Trager)

Kim Coates (Alex 'Tig" Trager)
Although Kim has quite the film career, you can find him on TV going all the way back to Miami Vice and Night Heat in the 1980s, Street Legal, The Hat Squad, Lonesome Dove: The Series, and Robocop in the 1990s, and then The Outer LImits, Smallville, and Prison Break before becoming one of the Sons of Anarchy.

5. Mark Boone Junior (Bobby Munson)

7. Theo Rossi (Juice)

Theo Rossi (Juice)
Before becoming the Sons' favorite angst filled biker, Rossi did guest appearances on Boston Public, NYPD Blue, Veronica Mars, Lost, and The Unit. You may also have seen him as Nick on Bones, Randy Payton on Jericho, Jason Scott on Las Vegas or Stan Giamatti on Grey's Anatomy.

8. Ron Perlman (Clay Morrow)

Ron Perlman (Clay Morrow)
Clay may have met his demise on Sons but you can catch Ron going all the way back to Dr Bernie Marx on Ryan's Hope and the late 1980s bullet hit Beauty and the Beast. He's also voiced characters on The Legend of Prince Valliant, Fantastic Four, Phantom 2040, and Mortal Kombat: Defenders of the Realm and Justice League.

9. Dayton Callie (Wayne Unser)

Dayton Callie (Wayne Unser)
Would you believe that Dayton was a breakdancer in Preppies in 1984? Later he had guest roles on everything fro Kate & Allie, Falcon Crest, Beauty and the Beast, and Growing Pains. In the 1990s you may have seen him on Seinfeld, Ellen, Murphy Brown and NYPD Blue. He was also Charlie Utter on Deadwood and Ernie Dell during the miniature killer storyline on CSI before turning up as Chief Unser in Charming.

10. Ryan Hurst (Opie)

Ryan Hurst (Opie)
As much as we miss Opie, it's hard to think of him as a student on Beverly HIlls 90210 or Crunch on Saved by the Bell: The New Class, but if you go back and look, you'll find her there. He also had guest roles on JAG, Everwood, CSI: Miami, and Medium before doing time for the Sons of Anarchy.

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.


Unser: Let's do this quietly.
Gemma: Not exactly my style, sweetheart.
