Being mother greatest teacher: Katey SagalAugust 20th, 2009 - 7:02 pm ICT by IBNS
Aug 20 (IBNS) Katey Sagal, essaying the role of fierce matriarch Gemma Morrow on FX’s motorcycle drama “Sons of Anarchy”, said being a mother has been her greatest teacher and also the most self-sacrificing thing.
In an interview, Katey Sagal said: Being a mother has been my greatest teacher and also the most self-sacrificing thing I’ve ever done. I’ve never loved anybody the way I love my children. It’s an experience I was surprised by. You have your boyfriend, your husband, your friends, but it’s a different thing. It’s deeper, and it’s a fantastic — and risky — commitment to love that deeply.
The Sons of Anarchy is a motorcycle gang that was founded in Charming, California. Jax Teller (Charlie Hunnam) is the son of the late founder of the gang and is next in line to lead the gang.
His mother Gemma (Katey Sagal) has remarried the current head of the gang Clay (Ron Perlman), the youngest of the original founders. The gang is involved in all sorts of illegal activity.
She added: I think the characters I’ve played all have that quality, even Peg Bundy. She was devoted and loyal to her children in her own wacky way. But Gemma is intensely dedicated to her family and would do anything to protect her son and her extended family, which is the club. In my personal life, I don’t know that I would go to the lengths for my kids that Gemma does, but close.
FX Network’s original series, “Sons of Anarchy,” is an adrenalized drama with darkly comedic undertones that explores a notorious outlaw motorcycle club’s (MC) desire to protect its livelihood while ensuring that their simple, sheltered town of Charming, California remains exactly that.
