Following 6 seasons, actress Drea de Matteo will now feature as a 'series regular on the FX drama' Sons of Anarchy.
E!News reported that:
After the shocking deaths of Clay () and Tara () last season, it does not come as much of a surprise that a few other characters might also see a little more screen time when the series returns for its final season.
The actress, who won at the Emmy for her work on The Sopranos in 1999, has recurred as a drug addict and Jax's () estranged ex-wife Wendy since season one. Given the fact that Jax's second wife, Tara was killed in the sixth season finale, Wendy would step up to play a bigger part in the life of her son and on the show. Aside from her role on The Sopranos, de Matteo had recurring roles on Desperate Housewives, Joey and recently guest starred in a episode of The Mindy Project.
Naturally Tara's death will impact hugely on Jax and the show's direction upon return where creator explained:
I wanted to remove [Jax's] True North, because I feel like there needs to be this major psychic and emotional shift. What direction it wants to push him in? We will see next season.
But what happens to a guy like that now that he's lost both of the people he loves the most, who were able to be his moral compass, with Opie and now Tara. It now really is Jax who is completely untethered and on his own in the final season.
What do you think of this exciting turn of events and the effect that 's character will have on the rest of Sons of Anarchy?
