Several months before FX motorcycle drama Sons of Anarchy returns, the network has released another teaser trailer that focuses solely on Katey Sagal's character Gemma Teller Morrow - the "beautiful queen of bikers" who can be quite a "handful." Gemma, of course, is the widow of SAMCRO motorcycle club founder who later married Clay, played by Ron Perlman.
The 55-year-old Married ... with Children star tells Ace Showbiz that she is indeed very fond of her character. "I like her loyalty, her sense of right and wrong in her world. What's so interesting about a motorcycle club is the set of rules they live by, and there are definite ways of behaving. She definitely loves her own family, her extended club family, and she would do anything for them."
Set for a September premiere, the 13-episode sophomore run of Sons of Anarchy
started filming recently. Two notable additions to the cast were announced of late, Henry Rollins and Adam Arkin, who will both be playing neo-nazis AJ Weston and Ethan Zobelle respectively. Now if you're a fan of the show and know Jax's relationship with Darby (Mitch Pileggi), it's easy to say that he won't exactly get along with these two. True enough, the two season 2 guests were generically described as simply "antagonists."
It was reported previously that Arkin's Ethan will be an even bigger problem for Clay. "Henry will bring his intensity and muscularity to this complex part," said Nick Grad, FX's executive VP of original programming.
As to how this season of Sons of Anarchy
would shape up, creator Kurt Sutter said in a prior interview with E! Online that it's going to be all about "internal conflicts" that happen at the club, with the club possibly becoming its own worst enemy.
Watch out for Sons of Anarchy
late September up to early October on FX.
