Renaming this blog KATEYXSAGAL soon (shout out to Ellie for trading urls with me) bc Sons of Anarchy is officially the most ridiculous thing and I love Katey way beyond Gemma anyway.
So, if you’re following just for SoA stuff, feel free to unfollow bc this will now be a Katey, still some SoA, Married with Children, Futurama, 8 Simple Rules, etc. blog. :)
Twitter will be ablaze with debate about which of SAMCRO’s leading ladies is superior. Series creator Kurt Sutter added fuel to the fire, tweeting that fans of Team Tara were “smart” while the legions of Team Gemma supporters were “dangerous.” And while no one is closer to Gemma than Sagal herself, the actress — and wife of Sutter — stays diplomatic when it comes to her personal allegiances.
"I love working with Katey. The thing about Katey and I is that we love each other. She’s the sweetest, most generous, warmest person in the world. She bares a little bit of resemblance to Gemma in that she’s a very fierce mother figure and she’s always very maternal and sisterly towards me so when we have these scenes together— I guess the baseline is kinda "love" between us and then we get to peel away all the niceness and get to the nitty gritty which is what makes those scenes fun. It takes a little while to get there with her [laughs] because we feel so warmly. We certainly have our days where we walk in and we’re like "I don’t know how we’re gonna do this. We hate each other so much." But we get around to it and it’s always a lot of fun. That’s the thing about acting, even when you’re enacting these horrible things, it’s quite fun, especially if you like the people you’re working with." - Maggie Siff on working with Katey Sagal on Sons of Anarchy [x]
Katey Sagal talks about her love for The Beatles and being a young girl whisked away by cops for being a hysterical fan in the 60s (with footage to prove it!).
