Now that the show is over, the secrets can finally come out.
Sons of Anarchy set a record with its series finale last week, and though you may still be mourning the loss of the show and certain characters (don’t worry, we won’t spoil anything here), we’ve got something that will definitely cheer you up.
We caught up with former Sons star Maggie Siff at the Critic’s Choice Awards back in June, and got her to spill some scoops about what it was really like to work on the gritty FX drama about a group of outlaw bikers. Siff, who played Tara Knowles on the series for six years, offered up some great behind-the-scenes insight and some high praise for her costars during a round of People’s Choice Against the Clock.
“Katey Sagal is the nicest human being on the planet,” Siff shared when we asked her to reveal something surprising about a costar. One of the few characters to actually survive until the finale (ok, so we included one spoiler — sorry!), Sagal portrayed renegade biker Jax’s mother, Gemma Teller, on the series.
Along with complimenting her SOA castmates (she also told us which actor was the funniest on set), Siff revealed how she’d unwind after a long day of shooting.
“Laughing with the guys in the parking lot,” she said.
Ok, now we’re just getting sentimental. Grab a tissue and watch Maggie Siff play Against the Clock below.
Sons of Anarchy‘s Maggie Siff has quickly lined up her next series gig — playing the female lead opposite Paul Giamatti and Damian Lewis in the Showtime drama pilot Billions. Written and executive produced by Brian Koppelman and David Levien and Andrew Ross Sorkin, Billions is a fictional drama that takes a forensic look at the world of high finance by tracking the approaching collision between two titanic figures – the hard charging, whip-smart U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades (Giamatti), and the brilliant, ambitious hedge fund king, Bobby “Axe” Axelrod (Lewis). Siff, who also recurred on the first season of Mad Men, will play Rhoades’ wife, Wendy. After graduating at the top of her medical school class and training as a psychiatrist, she is now a highly in demand performance coach who works with some of the most powerful and influential figures in the world of high finance. Neil Burger is directing the pilot, which will be filmed in New York in early 2015.
I’ve added captures of Maggie from her role as Sam Bennet in the 2013 film Concussion. I’ll replace these captures once I get higher resolution video, so in the mean time enjoy!
Sony’s The 5th Wave, the adaptation of Rick Yancey’s popular YA novel, is rounding out the cast ahead, adding Sons of Anarchy star Maggie Siff and Hart of Dixie actress Talitha Bateman.
Chloe Grace Moretz stars in the film as Cassie, a teen girl who is one of the human survivors after four waves of increasingly deadly attacks left most of Earth decimated. She’s on a mission to rescue her younger brother Sammy, while also trying to prepare for inevitable and lethal fifth wave of attacks by the aliens.
Siff will play Cassie and Sammy’s mother Lisa, who suffers terribly when the third wave releases a plague on Earth. Bateman will play Teacup, a young girl who is also in the child army where Sammy is being held.
Directed by J Blakeson from a screenplay by Susannah Grant, The 5th Wave also stars Nick Robinson, Alex Roe, Maika Monroe, Liev Schreiber and Ron Livingston.
Tobey Maguire, Graham King, Lynn Harris, and Matthew Plouffe are producing, while Denis O’Sullivan and Richard Middleton are executive producing. Andrea Giannetti brought the project to Sony and will oversee for the studio with Hannah Minghella.

Hey all! I’m Carol of CharlieHunnam.org and thanks to my good friend Colleen for welcoming on to her site. I’ve loved Maggie for a long time now and I’m so happy to be apart of the site. In light of my joining I’ve added a new site and gallery design. I hope you all like it and find it easy to browse (especially on mobile).
You can expect the site to be undergoing some changes in the coming weeks and months as Colleen and myself work to better the site which will include the site content, as well as many gallery additions and replacements. Stay tuned!
After the finale, you said the park scene was the most important one for Tara in that episode. What conversations did you have with Charlie Hunnam and Kurt Sutter going into it?
For me, the question was really, am I really afraid that he’s going to kill me? And I think Charlie felt similarly: is this really a consideration? Having to dig and find that place where that could be true was the hard work of the episode — finding all of the love that she had for this man in addition to the terror that she has arrived at. So that was some of my conversation with Kurt. And then I also knew it was, for myself, really the last significant scene that you would ever really see between them. There’s the scene in the hotel room and some stuff that follows, but the life of those characters together kind of culminates in that scene. It felt particularly significant for that reason.
