‘Sons of Anarchy’ Alum Ron Perlman Wishes Daughter a Happy Birthday in Sweet Post

by Allison Hambrick

“Sons of Anarchy” star Ron Perlman shared a sweet birthday wish for his daughter, Blake Perlman, to his Instagram account.

The actor captioned the post: “Blake Amanda Perlman, aka @blake_perlman , aka number one, aka apple of daddy’s eye. Happy Birthday Beautiful Girl! Lub u so!!”

Perlman shares Blake and another child, a son named Brandon, with his ex-wife Opal Perlman, from whom he filed for divorce back in 2019 after 40 years of marriage. Blake was born in 1984. Like her famous father, she is an actress. Her most notable credits include Archer and Hand of God. She also had a cameo in her father’s film, Hellboy II: The Golden Army.

Perlman himself is known for a variety of television and movie appearances. Of course, he played Hellboy in two films. He portrayed Clay Morrow in Sons of Anarchy from 2008 to 2013, becoming a fan favorite. Additionally, he had a highly lucrative career in voice acting. From Mortal Kombat to Teen Titans, Perlman racked up so many voice roles, it would be hard to turn on an animated series without hearing him.

Most recently, Perlman starred in the film Don’t Look Up. Directed by Adam McKay, it stars Leonardo Dicaprio, Ariana Grande, Jennifer Lawrence, Jonah Hill, Chris Evans, Timothée Chalamet, and Meryl Streep, among many others. The movie follows astronomers who discover that a comet is hurling towards Earth and have to warn the government. It received mixed reviews from critics.

Sons of Anarchy Fans Declare Funniest Moment of Series

As mentioned before, Perlman is well known for his tenure on Sons of Anarchy. Though the serious is often more serious, it isn’t without any levity. Fans over on Reddit debated which comedic moment was the best, with one moment standing out. In season six, Morrow gives a memorable sermon in a prison chapel. The inmate interrupts the pastor to shout his praises for the female genitalia. Because this was, of course, Sons of Anarchy, he used less appropriate language.

“Gotta hand it to Ron Perlman,” wrote one user. “He was great in that scene. His delivery was hilarious.”

“Absolutely love this scene!” another responded. “Thanks to either brilliant writing or beautiful improvisation it’s one of the top 10 scenes from the entire show!”

Not everyone enjoyed the scenes, however. Another user expressed that they felt the scene detracted from the show. The user revealed that they and their husband “cringe so hard” and “fast-forwarded” through the scene. It “was too out of place” in such a serious show, in their opinion. The user did add: “No judgement on those who thought it was funny.”

All seven seasons of Sons of Anarchy are available to stream on Hulu.
