For seven seasons from 2008 to 2014, Sons of Anarchy was one of the most buzzed about shows on television. Over the course of seven seasons, many characters came and went as shocking and brutal deaths became commonplace, and while the main cast mostly stayed the same, there were some peripheral characters who had a pretty big impact on storylines and audiences. While all eyes were always on Jax, Tara, Gemma and SAMCRO, when these 13 characters were on the screen, fans definitely took notice! Check out 13 minor Sons of Anarchy characters who stole the show:
13. Nero Padilla
Although Nero Padilla became an integral part of the series, he didn’t appear until season five’s premiere “Sovereign.” Despite the fact he only appeared in 38 episodes from season five to season seven, his presence immediately breathed new life into the show. For once, Gemma had a stable love interest in Nero who was kind, smart and cared deeply about her which could most definitely not be said for Clay. Nero’s commanding force and leadership made him difficult to ignore, but most of all it was Jimmy Smits’ strength of acting that had audiences become immediately invested in his character and it isn’t hard to see how or why Nero became such an important character to the show.
