‘Sons Of Anarchy’ Actress Talks Season 5, Major Character Dies Next Week [Rumor]

Sons of Anarchy spoilers

Sons of Anarchy fans (myself included) feel every second of every day between a new season 5 episode and the next. Already, just thinking about it, my hands are shaking not unlike the arthritis-ridden hands of former-President Clay Morrow. Good thing cast and crew are giving us little morsels to sustain us from week to week. The latest? A Huffington Post interview with actress Maggie Siff.

For those of you who don’t know (hey… why are you here?), Siff plays Tara Knowles, doctor and long-time girlfriend/fiancee/now-wife of current SAMCRO President and Sons main protagonist Jax Teller (played by Charlie Hunnam). The two finally got married in last week’s episode (in a brothel, no less) and Siff sat down with Alex Moaba of HuffPo to talk about where her character, and the season, are headed.

On the season premiere:

“It’s so funny because we’re still in the middle of shooting the season, and it’s Sons of Anarchy, so terrible shit happens all the time, and I started watching that episode was like, “Oh no, this is the one where the daughter gets burned alive.” It kind of is one of the most gruesome things television has ever seen.”

On becoming Gemma 2.0:

“It’s true, she’s taking a lot of lessons from her. And one of them is, ‘How do I play this?’ — being in the moment but also having this conversation with herself, seeing all the manipulation and dealing with the opportunistic question of what’s going to work best for me in this situation.”

On Tara’s subtle and developing excitement over the danger of the Sons world:

“You know, one of the very first thoughts I had about the character was the fact that she’s this surgeon, and she kind of deals with life and death and blood and guts all the time. And I think there has to be some place, on some level, on which it does excite her.”

Don Draper or Jax Teller?

“Don Draper probably has a bigger hole in his soul than Jax Teller. All Jax knows is this criminal life and this world and these people, and the world is pretty small. I think Don has more holes in his history, and little less control over what he can’t feel. He goes through the series, and he’s so blind and numb to these things in himself. But, I don’t know, Don’s making progress, who knows where he’ll end up.”

According to Entertainment Weekly, a major character is going to die next week. The character’s death is reportedly going to be shocking and unexpected, leading some sites to think that maybe Tara herself is on the chopping block. But in light of her new interview, for some reason I kindly doubt it.

Sons of Anarchy airs Tuesdays at 10pm ET on FX. Head on over to The Huffington Post for Maggie Siff’s full interview.

    Major character? Unless it jack doe it really matter? Lets face it, there is no show without jack. I think its time for Tara to go. Come on now, she's a surgeon and now a biker chick. Now that is so common. I just saw five of them ride by the hospital today. After 16 years in college, medical school, intership, residency, she becomes a biker chick. They jumped the shark with this one. I like the show because it is such bull shit, but the surgeon turn biker chick is ridicules.

    oh it won't be that hypocrite, Tara. I can't stand that character. If it's going to be a shock, they it's probably Opie sadly, my favorite guy. Let's face it, Clay, Tig, Unger, and Juice aren't that big of a deal on the show anymore.

    That's my thought too. The way he was pulling away from the club I think was the writer's way of hinting he was on his way out.

    plus telling his ex wife to look after the kids. though im sure that was more cause he knew he was going to get himself arrested to watch over jaxs in prison. going to hate to see any of them to leave but if it isnt opie im going with unger.

    Tara can never win with people. When she sides Jax, she is a bad mother. When speaks her mind then she is called a traitor to Lord Jax. I have also noticed that women are the ones who have a problem with her. I wonder why? Is it because they want Jax for themselves? lol
