Seven years after Sons of Anarchy came to an end after seven seasons, the cast of FX’s hit series got together for a small but special reunion.
Over the weekend, Kim Coates, who played Alexander “Tig” Trager on Sons of Anarchy, took to his Twitter account with a snapshot of the reunion. “The boys in the band are back. Home of the Beatles. Four happy biker boys right here. Enjoy your Saturday Eve peeps. Cause we’re gonna. Tig xo.”
Sons of Anarchy premiered on FX in September 2008. The show had nearly 100 episodes during its seven-season run. Those who starred in the series included Charlie Hunnam, Katey Sagal, Mark Boone Junior, Tommy Flanagan, Johnny Lewis, and Ron Perlman.
The reunion between the Sons of Anarchy stars comes just a few weeks after fellow co-star William Lucking passed away at the age of 80. The late actor played Piney Winston across four seasons on the show. Coates spoke about Lucking in a Twitter post. “Never ever gonna forget this guy. Billy broke the mold of pretty much everything he did and accomplished. The times we all had on set are legendary. Just like Piney.”
‘Sons of Anarchy’ Star Kim Coates Opens Up About the Start of His Career
During a 2018 interview with PopCulture, Sons of Anarchy star Kim Coates reflected on his acting career. “I stumbled into this. Right? I never saw a play in high school. Didn’t know what a soliloquy was. I had no clue about anything other than hockey. Being a proud Canadian boy, I knew sports.”
The Sons of Anarchy castmate also admitted that he did ok in school but basically stumbled into acting in college. “I took an acting class for fun. To meet girls. To just have fun. I was going to be a history teacher.”
Prior to making his way to New York City and Los Angeles, Coates stayed in Saskatchewan and was in 25 productions while in college. He eventually headed to New York City and worked on Broadway.
“I just kept working so hard and making good decisions on the parts I would take and the people I met,” Coates recalled. “With all theirs and downs. That’s what led me to now. I live everywhere. And now I can pretty much do what I want. It’s a great position to be in.”
Coates goes on to say that he’s ways looks at his career as him being lucky. “I guess I’m a tough guy. You know? I give good creep. I love comedy. But I love finding out the truth of these bad boys I play.”
Coates then added that since Sons of Anarchy added he has turned down 70 percent of the offers that have been offered to him. “The guys don’t interest me at all.”
